Two Cellos … and other gems from YouTube


Now this may really seem bizarre.  At least for me it is.

There you go building all those non-standard audio devices that cost a small fortune in time, labour and sometimes money, refining and retuning the whole signal path – starting from source and ending with the speakers and room modifications …

…. And then I suddenly find myself listening to … YOUTUBE, via internet connection, from a PC, that is linked up to my system.

OK, OK, OK !!!!

So the quality IS COMPROMISED.  Even if you find a piece that is youtube-recorded in HD, or HQ {{ “High Quality” – as they call it  :)  }}.

Even if it **is** HQ / HD, it is not Hiend.  But anyways, sometimes, just sometimes, I feel the need to “connect” to such lower and compromised quality. The visual that goes with the sound conveys a power of its own.

And what would that specifically be, the stuff that I am listening to ?  Well, various things….

Check out these – for starters:



Rest in Peace, Johnny:
