My New Year’s Wish for my fellow audiophiles.

May your 2024 be blessed and filled with joy and good health for you and your family. For all of you who work too hard, too many hours, please take more time this year listening to your music, your sound system. For those who listen to your system all the time and are borderline obsessed, my hope is that you can find other things to do. Go hiking, go out with your partner for dinner, find other hobbies and interests outside of the audio world. Put the audio fool in you- away for a time, enjoy the other seasons of life. Find the balance and come back to your audio anew and with fresh perspective.

Just a thought and Happy New Year.



Great hearing from you! Dude congratulations on the move and new home. PA is awesome. You guys were a blast and enjoyed the listening sessions immensely. Good sound and great times. I’m drink a Guinness tonight and holding it up to wish you the best!!

@thecarpathian, that would be Scranton, 18504.  Kind of a fluke we ended up in that spot.  My spouse got a Cadillac relocation from her new employer and after 17 months of looking, finally found a place that met our needs there.  It was also a bit of full circle, too.  Back in the dim dawn of pre-history when we were dating, we used to meet up here because it was about half-way between my place (Syracuse) and hers (Mt. Joy).  Interesting how things work out!

@2psyop Guinness is spot on!  I quaffed a couple of Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stouts after posting.  Enjoy in continued good health!

  Ah, Scranton!

Close to Wilkes Barre and the casino.

Been through there countless times on my way to Mahanoy City where my parents grew up. Beautiful area. Mahanoy City, not so much anymore. 


Ha I haven't driven by Scranton since the last time I drove to Syracuse! Class of 91 here.
