    The State of DACSES

    a new favorite emerges...DACs are just better when they're wireless

    Sony WM1A and microSD

    Glad you are liking it. I hope you did get it for a good price. I think the DAC is an after thought however. Wish the line level out is always active though.

    That is awesome, Al! When I used to be a regular on Facebook, some pals had lists of favorite concerts. For me in those early to mid-80's days, I was thick in the "New Wave/Alternative" thing. Some of my favorite shows included The Cramps (great fun party-type band, I must have seen them 5 or 6 times), and The Stranglers (long story, but got to meet the band, take one of them to a local radio station for interview, and spent some time backstage after the show). But SO many great bands in the day, including some no-name band that opened for Jesus & Mary Chain and BLEW them away....I and perhaps 8-10 others ran to Tower Records after that show to pick up that no-name opener's CD: Pretty Hate Machine by Nine Inch Nails. I had saved a few ticket stubs from then, think i did clean up and threw some out but wonder if I still have any left over.....

    https://tommy-guerrero-too-good.bandcamp.com/ Tommy Guerrero -- laid back instrumental poprock, groovy, listen to White Sands if nothing else: https://tommy-guerrero-too-good.bandcamp.com/track/white-sands San Franciscans, he's a local, so he probably plays out often

    Hifiman Jade II

    That must be it as this isn't terrible at all. I'd pick the ESP950 over it or any Lambda but it's nowhere near the old Jade level of shit.

    Trying to figure out which shape to order. Actually already ordered one, but have a return window of a couple more weeks. Any thoughts one way or another?

    The Live Music Thread

    Very cool! I should do that before I forget everything. I barely remember most of the shows I went to in the 90s because I was about to get CFS...or perhaps I already had.

    The Live Music Thread

    I've been going through some of my concert ticket stubs because Claire has a spreadsheet of many shows we/she/I have seen and I want to expand it. One of the earliest ones that I still have made me feel good inside and stirred some memories of several very cool concerts at UC Davis while I was an undergrad there. For example, I saw the Talking Heads on campus on December 5, 1983. Think Big Suit, suburban home set, Speaking In Tongues tour, all just one week before Jonathan Demme filmed the same show in Los Angeles. I also saw the infamous Replacements show, such as it was, in the tiny UC Davis Coffee House. They were so drunk they could barely perform a song, and soon after they started they literally fled the stage, ran out of the venue, and never returned. Apparently, somebody told them that the cops were after them and were about to raid the show. Not accurate but fucked over us fans even more than their shitty performance. I also saw both of those bands subsequently (with another Replacements screw up of our own doing) but the ticket stub is for the one and only time I saw the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn, with Double Trouble. It was an epic show in Freeborn Hall on campus (now also gone), and it was everything any SRV fan could imagine. I found the awesome set list online and the bootleg of the whole show that I will be listening to later. Voodoo Child (Slight Return) You Done Lost Your Good Thing Now Honey Bee Mary Had a Little Lamb Love Struck Baby Tin Pan Alley Cold Shot Couldn't Stand the Weather Texas Flood Lenny Stang's Swang Rude Mood All of that for $10.50! Hard to imagine these days. Claire actually puts the price of the tickets on her spreadsheet, which is fascinating. Anyway, I love thinking back on this stuff, and I'm glad I kept some momentos to remind me.

    Again, all great advice, Marc. Much appreciated. I did end up ordering the Wide Fives board. It should be fun as a change of pace. I really like the idea of a lighting system and will look into that. I take it that the G3 comes with a rotofix mount, but the other boards don't? Anything to make rotating the boards easier (and swapping them in and out as well) would be a big plus. The 20s get worn out pretty quickly if you're not rotating them on a regular basis.
