A strange urge.
As I told I did not listen my payback for good 3 month, it was combination of many factors. I listed mostly YouTube during working and it was enough for me.  Just did not want to. Suddenly today I dropped the kids to school and driving back I had a very sudden and very strong urge to turn my audio and to listen it. It was VERY strange, almost painful feeling. I remember a few years back when I was spending a few hours a day with my playback I noted that I felt better in my home what my power amps were on. It is interesting to identify what in our psychic force us to have the need, very physical need to turn the attention to playback.  I think after today I feel like to work on my Remedios speakers again.  I kind of felt good that I have all of it available for my attention… Go figure…

Very strange...
During the last week I made at least dozen attempt to listen to my playback. None of them materialized. The system is set up the amp is running non-stopping for a couple weeks and each time when I turn music in a few minutes, in some cases in few seconds I have tendency to shut it down. It is not that it does not sound good, I mean the whall  remedies set up, well it does not sound good but it is not the point. Is there some very strange absent of instant pleasure, that I found is very mandatory and it's not being served anymore.  They play back is trying to push something very pretentious out itself but it's does not work. There's a last September when I was shocked and completely destroyed by Dannoy performance when the speakers playing there was no other place in universe where I would like to be but between the speakers. It is just like your favorite place between your wife legs: you just want to live there forever. Now, the way how it sounds it makes me to force myself to sit the front of speakers. Very big difference and I do not know what it is since basically I listen the same setup.

Welllllll....
It is very interesting. A few days ago my local other friend intent to visit me and he asked me if I still do audio. That was a superb loaded question and I have been thinking about it for a while. From a prospective a regular Stereophile  reading audio practitioner I most likely would be disqualified as a person who do oudio. Indeed I do not buy any equipment, I do not reposition my cables each week, I very rarely now they pay attention what is trending and kind audio online presence and I do not have as many listening session as I had years ago. I personally, still very much consider myself to be the audio practitioner only now I find different things are precious to me. I used to listen audio and try to understand is capacity. Nowadays I'm more listen myself and care how those object sensationS impact my own sentiments. I know my music, I know myself I know what audio efforts should deliver to me and if audio do not do it then I do not care about audio and do something different which does. So, in the way I am a typical audio particin3er who have shitty playback....
