|Anyone been to United Home Audio?
One of my better retail experiences, too. No pressure, honest answers to my questions, and didn't treat me like a "tire-kicker". I ended up buying my Gershman X-1/SW-1's from them. At the time, they only had a mismatched set, but they loaned them ...
|Best and Worst Rock Concert Moments
In 1973, or '74, I went to the Casino Arena, in Asbury Park,NJ. Renaissance headlined, Linda Ronstadt opened. My friends and I were sitting on the floor, close to the stage. I had a camera, and started taking pictures during Ronstadt's set. A boun...
|What started you on the merry go round?
In 1967, I was 10, and my Dad had a Lafayette system (tube receiver, Criterion? speakers, Garrard turntable). I vividly recall hearing the Mamas & Papas- the harmonies had me transfixed. It sounded so much better than when I heard it on AM rad...
|MySpace...great place to discover music

|Help me pick a monitor
I listened to the Tylers and Paradigms while searching for monitors, although I only heard the Tylers against the ones I eventually bought (Gershman X-1's) and I thought the Gershmans bettered both. With my tube monos, the Gershman's were, to my e...

|anyone listenedd to the Gershman Cameleons?
I listened to them extensively about 8 months ago and was very impressed. I didn't compare them to the Meadowlarks, though. My speaker budget was about 3 times the cost of the Cameleons but I'm hoping to pick up a pair for a second system at some ...
|Live at Carnegie Hall
A band called Renaissance recorded an album there in 1975 accompanied by members of the New York Philharmonic. The original 2LP set and the new 2CD set from Japan are the best sonically.Eddie
