"and this is a British room heater"

Art is a bit more reticent than I imagined him. Not quite the Mister Rogers of audio in his verbal delivery, but closer than I expected, given his writing style and good sense of humor.

I do tend to like what he likes (excluding political leanings, of course), among them Roksan turntables, Rega tonearms, Horn Shoppe Horn speakers, Denon / Zu 103 cartridges, CineMag step-up transformers, First Watt F1, etc. Although the only thing I actually purchased based solely on his recommendation, without being able to hear it first, was the Roksan Xerxes X and Rega RB-900. I'm envious of those Altecs of his, even with their Italian Ironwork grill covers. You can almost smell the garlic permeating the air of his listening room.

Oh yeah, I had a pair of those wonderful British room heaters too. No rabbits though. You can't have it all.

I had to laugh at the apparently autographed, framed picture of pianist Valentina Lisitsa, who Art shamelessly lusted after. Not that I blamed him.

God, I miss Listener.

Thanks for the link, E-Stat. Good stuff.
