I understand that Quattro (an item of lust for me in my youth) is also caught in a time warp. That model was not available in right hand drive at the time period of the show.

Different spacial presentation, and less bipole dip.

Right, although if you carried a big enough stick / wallet, you might (just) have been able to parallel import one of the first off the line from the factory in Germany. Not likely. Just adds a little extra sheen of (very sinister) weirdness to the proceedings.

had a quick ride last night in a A3 Titanium Sport edition borrowed by my son

not all all-wheel drives are created equal - this thing is one helluva go-cart - but would certainly get ruined in Dave's "driveway"

well, like I said, it was more a matter of nostalgia for the "heady" days of audio sales than the musical merits - frankly by the time Michael McD took over vocals from Simmons/Johnston/Porter, the band had already lost its charm for me. Let's just say that a little Michael goes a long way.

I was a much bigger fan of Chicago when they were still a "rock-band" ( 25 or 6 to 4), mostly Brit prog-rock (King Crimson, ELP, even the overblown Rick Wakeman operatic works), and Supertramp COTC, and Pink Flyod - WYWH - I must have worn out 2 copies of each of those.


geeze, if we're not careful this event could turn into being about the music rather than the gear - I don't know which is more dangerous


were is that Buffet guy when you really need him?

Would the bipolar MT-TL for CHR-70 wired in series be too inefficient to be driven by either a SE 2A3 or a PP 2A3 (8 watts). I seldom play over 85db

I figure the PP amp would be fine, the SE might be a little shy.
