Al, Paul & G-Luv

I went to The Continental Club with Rega’s Paul Darwin (and BFF, Angela “G-Luv” Tragus) to see Alejandro Escovedo & the Sensitive Boys last night. Al dedicated the set to Lou Reed, played a few of his songs and said, “without Lou, none of us would be standing up here right now”. If he comes to your town… GO!

You will get a taste of what “real” Austin music is all about.


Rega Saturn-R Hootenanny!!! This Friday, October 25th 6-9pm

Here’s a bad pic of a Rega Saturn-R “mock up”. It’s just the casework. You’ll be able to hear the real deal at the Rega Hootenanny! Friday, October 25th. 6-9pm. Come drink a few beers with Rega UK’s Paul Darwin. Ask him about his escapades (he’s gonna kill me) as promoter for The Smiths and tour manager for Tears For Fears!

The Saturn-R is a CD player and DAC. It has 5 digital inputs so you can take advantage of the 192/24 dual Wolfson DAC’s on board. Hook up your Blue Ray DVD player, Computer, etc.

Also on hand will be the new Aria phono stage, Elicit-R integrated amp and RP8 turntable!


Harbeth 30.1


I just ordered up a pair of Harbeth M30.1.

Overwhelming inquires have “forced” me to get these on the floor ASAP! Here’s a nice REVIEW using the Heed Obelisk Si integrated amp / X2 power supply and Leben which I also have to demo.

Big Sean

As I was opening the shop this morning, some producers from Vice were walking by and asked if I would be willing to host an interview in the shop today. “With who?” I asked. “BIG SEAN..” Nice guy. He even had a bodyguard. I did mention that he could get a Naim system in a Bentley..

He thought the Rega RP3 was nice.

I have your dust cover solution! The Well Tempered Amadeus doesn’t come with one. Luckily, I have found an excellent company called STEREO SQUARES. These guys can make any kind of cover you can think up. The Amadeus cover is $299. 3-4 weeks ETA.
