        Was Darth Marvey thrown down an exhaust port? The resulting EMP/Force shock wave could be an explanation...

        I was wondering if I agreed with your Daughter. But was before they got crappy. So, their Pop-Rock phase (I'm assuming '75 rather than '68) that is interesting. And cute!

      I'm back Sat afternoon... No idea when the Aficionado will be ready though ;)
      I definitely need some bass traps, listening position sounds fairly neutral, almost lean. Then I stand up and I'm like WTF, BOOM city, like a night club or something.

        Hahaha cool man! We'll hang it with or without the Af. Yeah I'd also benefit a bit from traps I think (esp at low volumes) but my wife would never go for it. Room treatment in general is gonna be tricky cause it's the living room.

        My parents have a lot of scorpions in their house. I'm always paranoid when I go out there. Once was drinking coffee on the couch and looked down and one was sitting on my t-shirt over my chest. Jumped up and did a "uhuhuhuhuh" dance while wildly jerking my shirt. Managed to dislodge without getting stung and not spill my coffee

        I really wanted to like it but I found it to be Waters' weakest solo album by far, and perhaps his weakest work in general since Ummagumma.

        @philipmorgan I think it's the price difference between the Mjo2 and the Lyr 2. My guess is a lot of people looked at them both, didn't see the need for balanced I/O, and went with the cheaper option. Just a guess.
