Nerve Audio PH-1 Moving Magnet Phono Pre-Amp only $99!

PH1

In my quest to bring you good people high value, I'm bringing in this new moving magnet phono stage! Add a Rega turntable and one of the excellent Ortofon 2M cartridges and start spinning the black gold!

"Most of the Nerve Audio products were born from demand. At the time we started the PH-1 Phonostage design there were few, if any, good quality inexpensive phonostages on the market. The PH-1 will easily perform with phonostages in the $250-$350 price range. Solid construction, minimalist circuit, RIAA Eq. and low profile design. The PH-1 Moving Magnet phono stage was designed by Jeff Boccaccio and is hand made in small quantities."

10% off! ONE DAY ONLY!!

SALE! Saturday, April 17th. 11am-5pm. 10% off all records, turntables and cartridges! Got an old turntable that needs some TLC? Bring it by! Got some old records you don't want? Bring those by too! I'll be playing records all day. Barley Pops (beer) while it lasts!

Great show at the Continental Club. Their third of a 5 night run here in Austin. Last time I saw them was 15 years ago at Liberty Lunch (rip). They put on a great show! Real nice folks to boot. Go see them with a bucket of fried chicken.

Two Terrabytes Of Digital Media Euphoria

Tromping through the streets of downtown Tokyo... crunching tiny white audio players underfoot comes the iZilla. If you've been looking to step-up to a hungry man sized portable media player with incredible tech powers... this is it. First start with a whopping two terabytes of storage delivered by four 500 gig internal hard drives. Up the ante with a sweet 7" TFT-LCD touch screen... then crush your opponents with high-speed ripping capability for CD, DVD, and vinyl. A handy iPod® dock allows you to transfer songs to and from the iZilla.

Listen to the iZilla roar through the internal six speaker surround system offering 5.1 channel surround sound with up to 120 watts per channel. Or enjoy your music privately with the included DJ-Style wireless bluetooth headphones up to 15 feet away. Built in wi-fi (802.11g), Gigabit Ethernet, Firewire and USB 2.0 ports ensure the maximum capability to transfer your tunes and video to external hard drives and computers.

Take the iZilla with you anywhere. It's like having an entire home entertainment system in a handy 30 pound white briefcase. The iZilla can be powered by a standard 120VAC wall outlet, or runs off 16 D size batteries (not included).

The Demon Possessed Boy

Like A.A. Allen, Osborn was a Soul Crusader who traveled the country – the world – healing the sick and possessed, driving out demons and performing assorted miracles. He recorded his big tent revival meetings and audience responses. This record features a boy who misfiled his father’s records one day, leading his father to suspect the devil’s hand and bring him to see the great and mighty Osborn. In this recording, T.L. dramatically illustrates his power of exorcism, leaving the boy cleansed, never to mistake James Brown with Clifford Brown again. True story.

SXSW

I survived another year of SXSW!!! I saw a lot of good music... and some not so good. (Kids, posturing on stage while staring at your laptop is not rock and roll.) I started off at my favorite bar, Lovejoys to see the Pierced Arrows (formally known as Dead Moon). From there, the 4 day party progressed. The only real downer was the passing of Alex Chilton two days before I got to see him with Big Star. I still tried to make the showcase as Dwight Twilley was playing, but SXSW and Antone's decided to make it a "Badge Only" show. LAME! All in all a great week though. Bill Murray was in town bar tending at various venues and a vicious rumor was circulating about U2 playing on the roof of Star Bar. You never know what can happen during SXSW! Nothing has beat the time I saw Iggy Pop with the Stooges playing for free on the street. Nobody needed a badge!
