    Re: What's playing RIGHT NOW?

    I've started putting a system together in the guest bedroom.  I took the BM2400 out in the garage that was perfect electronically and gave it a facelift with a dead unit that was almost perfect cosmetically.  I also promoted the Beovox S40s that were in the garage to "in house status."  The S40s got some Old English cleanup and new brown fret cloth.

    This past week I bought a Beomaster Control Module from a popular auction site.  I got that yesterday, put seven Energizer 357 watch batteries in her, and she works perfectly!

    Next I will need to find a suitable rack for the space available (or build onto this end table/file cabinet) and add one of my BG3404s and my BC2400.  I'll wait to do that until my BG4002 is back from the shop (7 weeks so far....[:'(]).

    Anyway, listening to WMMO 98.9 FM in Orlando, Florida, "Sunday Morning Acoustic."  Simon & Garfunkel's "Homeward Bound" was playing when I took this shot.

    Strangely, the S40s performed rather better in the garage and in my dining room when I compared them to my M70s and S45-2s.  Perhaps these little gems like a bigger room than this small guest bedroom?  Oh well, the guests will have to settle for very good instead of great.  Yes -  thumbs up


    Current primary listening:  SMMC20EN -> BG4002 -> BM4000 -> Beovox M70

    Re: What's playing RIGHT NOW?

    And now I've moved to my bedroom where I'm listening to the Police's Synchronicity on S45-2s while drinking Wines That Rock's The Police Synchronicity and posting to Beoworld about batteries.

    Dear Evan Dear Rich, get back to the vinyl, thats where the quality lays, with MP3 files you cant do your Beovox speakers right.

    Today I was cleaning some of my dirty LPs, found this one, if I have to get all my LPs cleaned I must buy a machine, doing it by hand is annoying

    I know Søren, the digital files are becoming annoying, I have been up this whole time trying to get them organized and moved into my new laptop. I do think I am doing my Beovox speakers right, though. The majority of my collection is lossless. So far through my A8s, this new comp is proving itself to be quite a performer!

    I really like the WMC but like you, I'm also an iTunes man for music because of the iPods.

    I was up until 3:30a getting my library transferred over from the old lappy. Had huge trouble with duplicates and other frustrations.

    I have tried several players, but Itunes is the only one that can manage huge libraries, I've tried several times to transfer from one comp. to another, the best and with less failures was DVD copies, its time consuming, and somehow there is allways missing files, artwork and mixed groups and so on. I have a cheap Gateway for just music, in Itunes there is some 6000 songs, its 300 CDs and some of my vinyl, all MP3 320 kbs, Its easier to reload all the CDs, than correct all the copy misses (you only find the failures playing or searching), and then copy the vinyl files one by one, checking the sorting and artwork for each song, and even so Itunes lose files or mix up the content, but Itunes is faster and makes less failures than other players I've tried.

    Just checked your Samsung Evan, good buy for the money, I hope it lasts a long time. Keep us updated

    Last night I discovered the folder "Automatically Add to iTunes" which helped immensly. Basically, I transferred my library to an external HDD then pasted it it from there to the new lappy. Worked great. If only I figured that out hours before hand!

    I have been adding CDs too, my old laptop ran out of space so there were several discs that were never ripped until yesterday and today. So far I'm up to 1317 songs total. Once I have all of the content where it needs to be, I hit the "Get Album Artwork" button in iTunes and prest-o change-o, its all set! All thats left to do is sync my iTouch and deauthorize the old comp. Job done.

    I can already fully recommend the Samsung, wonderful machine - will keep you posted.

    And then a 45 test with a recent pickup from the FLURS:  Sweet's "Fox on the Run."  One of my all-time guilty pleasures as a *** in the 70s.

    Re: What's playing RIGHT NOW?

    With the BG4002 checking out Yes -  thumbs up, I moved the BG3404 into the guest bedroom.  The BG4002 (for now) gets the new Soundsmith SMMC20EN, and the BG3404 gets the used, Ebay-purchased MMC20EN.  The guest bedroom now has a nice little MMC20EN -> BG3404 -> BM2400 -> BV S40 system.

    Anyone planning a trip to Walt Disney World?  If so, bring your LPs....

    I'm really diggin' the sexy specs Ransey Lewis is sporting on his Bosa Nova LP from the late 60's. Not a bad sound at all. Simply a fusion of Brazillian Samba and and Afro-american R&B. I like it.

    But the real haul was the Gato Barieri. Never knew about this LP and I thought I had most of his stuff. The record swap meet is tomorrow. I know where I will be.Smile

    Ever since you posted that I have been trying to dig out my father's copy on CD to put on my iPod but no luck. I gave up on searching so I went and got my own copy this morning. Even went to two stores to find the album, got the last copy at Best Buy.

    It may be me, but there seems to be more bass than I remember. Don't we all love reissues?

    EDIT: I should add -  The bass isn't terrible, it's actually pretty enjoyable in both the car and on the BeoSystem, just seems like a lot for an album from 1983.

    Also went on a small music binge last night, felt the need to feed the BeoSystem...

    I downloaded some Peter Bjorn and John, Medina and Passion Pit. This stuff kept my A8s busy all day today Smile

    Albums on the to-get list are "Family Jewels" by Marina and the Diamonds, and "If Not Now, When?" by Incubus.
