Vinyl Sounds

Vinyl + Vacuum Tubes ... Still unsurpassed for warmth and richness of sound.

When I lived in New Haven in the 90s I took the train in to NYC on weekends to visit old friends from physics and mathematics, most of whom worked in finance. One Sunday morning in the spring I found myself with a friend of a friend, a big fixed income trader and devoted audiophile. His apartment in the Village had a large room with a balcony surrounded by leafy trees. In the room he kept only two things: a giant divan next to the balcony, on which several people at a time could recline, and the most expensive audio system I have ever seen. We spent hours listening to jazz and eating fresh cannoli with his actress girlfriend.
