    Laura got me thinking about my vinyl collection, where I actually do have some duplicates of a few albums, where some are original LPs that I purchased back in the 80's, and some are "reproduction" copies of albums. Note I didn't say "remastered", because they aren't; they're just re-released albums of the originals, by a new production company.

    What I'm getting at, is that I'm curious now. Curious to see what the differences are, if any, in sound quality. I'm also going to take a look at the fine print on the vinyl LP's label itself; sometimes that reveals a lot more than the jacket will, especially with "repros".

    I just got the tracking number for an i7 which is replacing the i6 whose battery life has gone down according to the current owner (my wife). It should arrive tomorrow.
    I still don't know if I really want the 7, it's been in the cart for a day...

    I've heard of Chinese "knockoff" vinyl reproduction (or labeled "remastered") being sold. It depends... Where'd you buy this vinyl? I'd try to send it back and find another source.


    I'll hang on to my 1520. Though after updating it and trying to use it for some basic tasks the other day, after it sat in a drawer for a couple months, it was really disappointing. What a mess...



    I bet I can spend less than $100 and have a pair of cans that sound just as good!


    I would! If possible... Maybe see if there's a Wiki on that particular album and see if there's any mention of problems they had in the studio or with the recording?
    I don't know, I've never payed larger amount of cash for headphones. I never manage to to make them last more than 4-5 months.

    On another note, people who aren't familiar with progressive rock have asked me if I was listening to circus music whenever I've played anything by ELP where Emerson played a piano. So far, nobody has asked me about the circus music when I've played other ELP songs that aren't piano songs or when I've played other progressive rock albums not by ELP. However, I'll say that circus music is my favorite if I hear any more references to it when I play other artists. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I can picture it now. It's all circus music. But what type of circus music? Does ELP, Yes, Rush, Dream Theater, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Tool, Big Big Train, etc. fit into clown music, acrobat music or wild animal trainer music?
    I'm not going to ***** about how this generation has bad taste in music and similar. But I will say that it's just sad that they're willingly accepting to become just another member of the herd.

    I'm not talking about anti-conformism, but nonconformism. It's huge difference.

    Speaking of progressive rock, I still have a lot more to explore. The more bands I get to know, the greater appetite for discovering new ones emerge. That goes for other genres as well.

    The wrong people have always run the world. The human female body is the most commercially exploited entity in human history.

    I enjoyed being able to work with youth in the manner I did. I give them credit, it's tough growing up in this era.

    There's never been any such thing as a 'perfect' leader but there have been better ones. The founding fathers of the US come to mind. The idea of creating a secular society and a grounding document stating such was and is genius. It's unfortunate that there's been many other leaders who would rather dilute that idea.

    When my wife worked with young people she enjoyed it as both a social worker and career coach. However she's happy to have moved on to adults. Adults are a bit more complex, not saying youth don't have issues but there is more to helping a 20 - 65 year old adult than a 15 - 19 year old teen. It can be more stressful dealing with adults as well.

    If you want to see issues, the amount of adult level trauma from abuse and neglect, talk to some my old clients...

    I'm in an interesting position...got a $75 gift card that allows me to get a used Moto 360 sport on the cheap. Doing some research to see if it makes sense.

    Still need a new pair of in ears. I'm getting by with the Nokia Coloud pop. But the fit isn't great. The search continues...

    For the record, I liked the Klipsch I was using. They just picked up a short a lot sooner than I though they would...

    I'm from an older generation than you, but I still feel that my generation has horrible tastes in music in many cases.

    That's excellent!

    Discovering new artists via exploration is a good thing, not a bad thing.

    Having an open mind is great, no matter whether one is young or old.

    The hard reset route fixed the 636 issue. I'd give it a test and use it for the weekend. The iPhone will take a back seat.

    Not yet. I'll probably save up some coin and get me a good pair of in-ear headphones. Problem is I don't have a good enough DAC on anything I own, so we'll see...
