    Saw Jorma & Jack (Hot Tuna) Thursday night in Randolph, VT.
    Kind of a laid-back show (compared to other times we've seen 'em) but good -- and, I've gotta say, Jack Casady is a heck of a bass player. I have seen 'em before but I never really appreciated how good he was. He's in the echelon of Entwistle (my own personal rock bassist hero), which I hadn't really appreciated until this week.

    So, the deal was -- for an extra 30 bucks, one got a seat in the front two rows, a copy of Jorma's recently-released memoir, and a "VIP" :p meet-n-greet with Jorma after the show. I sprang for the "VIP" tickets to get good seats... the book was a bonus :)

    Interesting factoid; Jorma Kaukonen is left handed. I did not know that. As a fellow, sinister south-paw :) I asked him why he played guitar right handed. He said, "There was no way my father was going to spend the extra money for a left-handed guitar!" So right handed it was. :|

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    They sound awesome. I've never heard a mini speaker this size that I really liked, but I think these sound better than my Mission 770's in every way except for bass extension, and I prefer them over my SDA CRS's, except they don't have that massive sound stage. The sound stage does extend a good bit beyond the speakers, however. :)

    Monitor Audio did an awesome job of the Radius series. With as good as these sound, I can't imagine how good the Bronze 2's I was looking at a while back sound.
    I may make a review on my YT channel, and if I do I'll post it here. :)

    He recommended them to me when I was looking at getting new speakers a while back. I was worried they would be a downgrade from what I had at the time, but if they are as good as these then they are almost certainly better.
    Once I get some stuff sold, I’m going to think about getting a pair, because other than cables I think I am done for a long time otherwise.

    Debris removers are on my street again. This time they're picking up a lot of it. They're making multiple trips too. The grappler operator is excellent and fast.
