The Major Once Told Me

November 5th, 2017 Comments off

– “Full bass and no treble? That is the all classic teenage set-up?”

I did have that set-up. I have matured a little since then possibly? No, not really.

Picture: it is indeed my work horse, still in active duty. It’s my NAD 352 C amplifier coupled to basically every HW I have in my possession.

Firstly my Dali Ikon 1 speakers, the rest of the visual and audio equipment.

My tripled Wi-Fi network is involved (whatever happened with the recent WPA-2 breach?).

Last but not least the graphic monster called “Thalita” that belongs to the little one.

Mm, the others have names as well. The master is called “Merak”. Yes, they’re named in a systematic way. Is there another way?

Speaking of the little one. I’ve offered him another 8GB RAM. Not the same speed and since I told him that they may “clock down” the rest (slowest gets priority) he’s no longer interested/curious. I did tell him that, but even if that would be the case an extra 8GB should be advantageous.

Would you not be curious and you would not want to try? The answer is… No, you would not!*

Phones and then what. It was never and will never be my vision of technology.

If you look closely you will notice that the dials are set neutrally these days, the blue beauty of the Northern sky and an actual reflection of myself in the picture.

I replaced the “big” speakers** along time ago. And I used to have a dedicated 10″ sub-bass incorporated as well. It was fun but completely unreasonable. Actually I should have had a 12″ (I will have one). The 10″ was way to agressive for my taste. Nowadays? More treble and a more “balanced” sonic picture possibly?

However, in reality my amplifier is not actually pulling the weight, rather my MDR-XB950BT (to everyone’s relief I might add, if they were actually aware of the fact) are and they (my headphones) are set to pure teenager mode.

Full and maximised bass (inbuilt amplifier), so no sonic neutrality at all really. Basically, I listen to them with as much bass as they can physically produce without distorting. Why? Because I like it like that.

Other story. The sound can be recreated, but you need stacks… towers of them. I know, many towers.

* That’s so strange. So, I’m just going to do it. An extra 8GB? If the machine in fact will not perform better? Then I will concede. I promise. Performance is measurable.

** They were converted to sub-basses, painted white and reside in a completely different location.

The Small Pleasures In Life

A semi-funtioning WiFi-scanner.

A salvaged multi-function waste machine? As I may have mentioned the other one stopped functioning due to lack of software drivers and it did not have these capabilities (another manufacturer I might add).

Expering a choking amount of HW failures lately. “Fan Error”? The replacement has to arrive from Hong Kong. I’m feeling the pressure.

It leaves me with an uneasy feeling. If I can not trust my machines? Who am I going to trust?

I already declared a long time ago that I categorically denounce any notion of any kind of Deity.

So, what exactly am I supposed to be believing in?

WiFi enabled scanning is sweet though!

As always, you really do need to listen to the sounds of Rotterdam and yes, that would be Funcken I a, referring to.

Broke The Mould

November 5th, 2017 Comments off

It was bound to happen rigth? Sooner or later?

Decoder? The label is called Hardleaders? Do you know?

Photek and Source Direct. What? Listen.

Break me? Decoder and Hardleaders’ would do that and they did.

It was always a favourite album, now? I don’t know. It is not 1998 is it?

I Think That I

November 5th, 2017 Comments off

No. There is nothing better. I don’t care what you think that you did hear. “Decorder” on Hardleaders? That’s it. I went to Uppsala to listen to it.

What? No, that’s it. No discussion. No arguments. No, “I feel that”. Pure f*****g breaks! Either you like it or you don’t. No considerations. These are the breaks.

Eternal Breaks?

Do you mean that literall?

Forever?

Yes, I do mean that, forever.

Beats forever, breaks forever, “Le tam-tam” forever.

The Lost?

November 4th, 2017 Comments off

Come on! Decoder said so: “Special Names” and that is in fact a Photek track.

Decoder – Dissection – Hardleaders – HLCD06 – 1998

Plz. The orginal breaks. HARDLEADERS!

Tears to my eye. The bass is bottoming out. So what do you do? Push. It is beautiful. Push beyond. Is it pretty?nIs it max? Yes. No compromise. Enjoyble? Indeed.

Tribe Was Does It Mean?

November 4th, 2017 Comments off

I looked. I was hesitent. I was thinking about playing “Dolor”. I saw something familiar. Decoders’s Dissection album. That is… true breaks. Any or everyday. Funny thing. I was young then. Haha, no you can not and you will not. Photek, J Majik and Source Direct? It is not a contest. “It is Art.”. Decoder?

They Say

that the late and departed Mr. M. Fisher has left something behind. Texts.

A last text… supposedly named “Acid Communism”.

If that is indeed true, I honestly don’t know what to do.

Until I read it. That is.

Sure, it may be only one thing that unit us.

I have definite proof now and then again you only need one thing.

My dear brothers and sisters. The do or die kind of sh**. Semper Fi.

Det finns inget att tvivla om längre. Deep breaks… are eternal!

“It is art!”
