    The cats don't seem to think so.

    My system presently exists in a storeroom. I haven't had the opportunity to enhance the decor as I work abroad for extended periods, so I hope I don't offend anyone's delicate sensibilities by posting a grungy room. In the spirit of sharing:

    Looks nice and cozy, actually. How's the sound in there?

    I love this little space! I'll bet that is a delightful listening experience!

    Nice room! Do you have issues with your cats trying to get on your speakers? I woke up one morning and one of the bookshelf speakers was on the floor. I assume a cat tried to jump on it and, since it is so top-heavy, it crashed. Or, perhaps your stands are anchored or weighted nicely, I can't tell.

    I haven't had a problem yet, but will probably rethink having bookshelves once I have some upgrade money together.

    Have you checked out the bluray audio version of the album?

    Keep the lights down and nobody notices grunge.... Looks like a nice room in low light.

    Do you find that the cello reverberates/vibrates in such a way as to affect the music playback? I have acoustic basses hanging on my wall (sometimes on a floor stand) in my office and they vibrate when I talk or any other noise happens. I have a near field here so I don't notice it but in a bigger room I'm sure it would be annoying.

    I've got the Wilson remix DVD audios of Fragile, CTTE, Tales and Relayer. Fragile is beaten by the old DVD audio and the new Kevin Gray pressing but is still very good, CTTE is slightly beaten by the European Rhino pressing, but still is good, Tales is killed by my 70's GP cut, but again isn't bad, his Relayer is probably my favorite. I don't have The Yes Album remix because I really like the HDtracks hi Res download and absolutely love the Friday Music 45 rpm pressing

    *all in my opinion obviously

    Great! Thanks for the info.

    Here's my "Fragile". It sounds GREAT to me!

    So much depends on your system. Vinyl guys will have great tables, and not so great digit players. Digital guys will have first rate cd players and Hi-Res files, and streamers, and....super downloads and, ..well, I can not keep up with the ever evolving digital world of music.
    Do I really need to buy a "streamer", ......even if I don't really know what it is?

    It's okay, thanks. I had to use a GIK bass trap and employ dual subs to tame the standing wave crazies.

    Lol, my cats would go after the juicy listening chair and footstool first. Cables next. I don't know how Chupacabra keeps his looking so pristine! Superior cat training, I guess.

    Thanks very much.

    I listen in the near field as well at low volume mostly so I don't think the cello should vibrate much. I will remove it and see if it makes a difference. Thanks for the observation!

    I've heard very good things about the Mofi Fragile, but haven't heard it. I do generally like their CDs/sacds/vinyl though so I'm sure its great.

    I do probably 85% vinyl, 10% hi Res files and 5% CDs when I'm home. I Just like the way vinyl sounds the best, but my Schiit Bifrost 4490 is no slouch, and sounds surprising non-digital with good files...

    See. That's what I'm talking about. You are primarily a vinyl guy, right? I'll bet your table, cartridge and phono stage are better than your digits. ......by "better", I mean, you put more money, time and effort into your analog equipment. Am I right?

    No doubt. I've got a Thorens TD 145 with an AT440mla cart that I've had since the early 80's. My dad gave it to me when he upgraded to an Oracle table. I get it adjusted and re-oiled every 5 years or so, or when I get a new cart by my turntable guru. I'll never part with this table, I just love the way it sounds with any cart I've thrown on it...

    Ahhh, mongo, my fellow denizen of the Cascadia Bioregion and Revel owner, thanks for the compliment. While I grew up hearing Olivia, Bread and England Dan on the radio, love 70's rock and listen (purposefully) to my share of camp and cheeze (the good kind) my musical tastes can easily be revealed by looking at my pix closely. You'll see the Miles Davis "Complete Plugged Nickel" box, Thelonious Monk and Grant Green vinyl, framed art of the Blue Note in NYC, framed art from the Empty Bottle in Chicago where we would go regularly for the "Festival Of Jazz and Improvised Music" (most would call it Free or Avant Garde Jaz) and a closer look will reveal music from the Art Ensemble to Ornette Coleman to John Zorn to Morton Feldman. I even started a thread on this forum for "Now Playing: Avant Garde, New Music and Free Improvisation". Also, I posted on the previous page here my love of bands like Sunn O))), Electric Wizard, Goatsnake etc etc.

    I'm much more likely to put on a Peter Brotzmann or Cecil Taylor LP than any audiophile approved Patricia Barber LP, and certainly more than Olivia Newton-John. Well, except for that one with "I Honestly Love You".....got a soft spot for that one. ;)
    (Note, as I type this response I am listening to "Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats")

    Dead cats, dead rats
    Can't see what they were at, all right
    Dead cat in a top hat, wow
    Sucking on the young man's blood
    Wishing he could come, yeah
    Sucking on the soldier's brain
    Wishing it would be the same

    Dead cat, dead rat
    Can't you see what they were at?
    Fat cat in a top hat
    Thinks he's an aristocrat
    Thinks he can kill and slaughter
    Thinks he can shoot my daughter

    Yeah right! Oh yeah!
    Oh right! Yeeah!

    Dead cats, dead rats
    Think they're an aristocrat
    Crap, now that's crap!

    (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
    :D

    I was wondering the same thing, especially since it looks to be in a corner. That body and strings would "play along" in sympathetic vibration. Loves me some Cello though!

    The Kevin Gray cut of this is also very good.
