I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Used the Needle Doctor code to break the bank and buy a Jolida tube pre...Hooked up some Mullard tubes to swap out the stock tubes and some Audioquest cables....We'll see how this sounds compared to my 20 year old Realistic pre (solid state) and Radio Shack unshielded RCA's....for the price of the thing I am hoping the Jolida gives me a bj too.....

Used the Needle Doctor code to break the bank and buy a Jolida tube pre...Hooked up some Mullard tubes to swap out the stock tubes and some Audioquest cables....We'll see how this sounds compared to my 20 year old Realistic pre (solid state) and Radio Shack unshielded RCA's....for the price of the thing I am hoping the Jolida gives me a bj too.....

Wow.
Big step-up there...

Nice going.

I am really bad with impulse purchases, but shit like that makes me happy so resistance is futile....I would have blown the dough going to Vegas anyway.

Spending it this way means you will get good music and more of it for your $$.

Audioquest? 

Hope you didn't drop too much on those. . .

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

They were cheap, that's why I got them.  $20 for 1.5 meters, but I figure they have to be better than what I have...I asked the guy at needle doctor what he recommended in the $20-$30 range and that's what he thought..Maybe I should have called Aperion?  I am still not sold on the $75 or the $750 patch cable.....I am doubting I can hear a discernable difference.  I am hoping that I hear a difference in the preamp upgrade though, and I expect I will.....

Bob Dylan mono box set came in yesterday. Starting from the beginning. 4 songs into the eponymous first album and I gotta say it sounds wonderful.

Awesome.  I have one en route, should be showing up in the next few days.  I am psyched for it.
