At times...this sounds more like a WAVVES/Cloud Nothings amalgam; than the WAVVES/Cloud Nothings collaboration  ;D


2nd time, through the 'ole grooves. IDK; I think this needs to go, on a top-10 list of mine.

Top-10 what, IDK (lo-fi groundbreaking albums); but here are the other 3 picks so far...lol

1. The Apples in stereo Fun Trick Noisemaker
2. Of Montreal Cherry Peel
3. WAVVES King of the Beach

Ms. Clark states that this album is her most 1st person release yet. Somehow, it feels like she's still putting on another persona but that's not a bad thing.

Yeah; Anthony Fantano kinda trashed it...saying it was disjointed, and not as thematic as her previous releases.

I read the same thing; that she said, this was more personal. I guess she doesn't have much of a theme about her.  ::)

^^^ Funny you should, go to pics of the guts; as I wonder...what you think, that must imply?

In other words; which is "better"...more guts, or less guts??  ???

I've ping-ponged on this matter. I used to think, more guts; more stuff, to justify the costs...lol  :-[

I mean, paying $5,000...for a half-empty box; snake-oil and rip-off, right??

But now, I'm not so sure. Let's take the Backert Labs Rhumba pre-amp, as an example.

Pretty "minimal", yes?



They make the argument; by design. Less is more; the less that gets in the way of the audio path, the "better". The whole the-best-signal-is-a-straight-line-with-gain theory.

Easy to buy, if you ask me. Of course...maybe that's true, mostly...for pre-amps?

When I see the insides of that Luxman; I see only one thing: that beautiful, hand-wound...EI transformer.  thumbsup

C-J uses them; so did Line Magnetic, if memory serves.

I tell ya; I wish I could afford, to go the "other" way. Get off the merry-go-round...but because, I bought gear, I thought nothing...within reason, and adhering to the laws-of-diminishing-return...could beat.

Like the Luxman 900s

Hell; I'd even settle, for the 700s  ;)
