    Good Evening Café.....

    I will spin this evening....

    But I got something on my mind I want to get off my chest first.

    I am going to pray and have a moment of silence for a moment tonight, in honor of my Grandmother.

    My Grandmother has transistioned yesterday, and she is now in a better place. As she enters the pearly gates of heaven to join my other grandparents and my parents, just know that she's in a much better place, and is now in the care of the most capable hands that can be provided to care for anyone in eternal life, and that are those who belong to the Lord.

    And now, for a bit of good news.

    As Steve and I have been collaborating off the forums the last couple of days, I am now in the process of building a secondary audio system that is going to be in my bedroom (alongside my home theater, so for when those days come up when I don't feel like getting up out of bed (and we all have a few of those every once in a while), I can listen to music in bed, without going into the living room to turn the big one on every time I want to listen to some music, and now, the big rig can get some days off as well).

    New Bedroom System is going to consist of:

    Sennheiser HD-650 (or HD-598 -- in Cream Color with Wood Accents) Headphones
    NAD 3140 Dual Mono Integrated Amplifier (EXACTLY like Breeze's)*
    BlueSound NODE 2 Music Player/Streamer (with Tune-In Internet Radio, Tidal, etc)***
    Apple iPad Mini 4 with iTunes and 128 GB Storage**
    Turntable with MM Phono Cartridge (nothing exotic like on my Thorens TD-160/Jelco SA-750D Turntable in the living room system)

    Along with my Home Theater:

    Definitive Technology Mythos SSA-42 Sound Bar
    Definitive Technology ProSub 800 Powered Subwoofer
    Yamaha RX-V481 Audio/Video Receiver (recently replaced a Harman/Kardon AVR-3600)
    Roku Ultra Video Streamer
    Vizio M-43-C1 4K Ultra HDTV

    So there you have it.

    * -- Forthcoming.... Ordered 04/09/17
    ** -- Already Own... Recently Purchased In March 2017 (early birthday present to me)
    *** -- Coming Between August 2017 and October 2017

    Well Now.... Onto To Listening To Some Music....

    To My Grandmother -- Mamie Lee Smith (05/18/18 to 04/10/17) -- A/K/A -- Purvis Kelly -- Rest-In-Paradise. Your Grandson Loves You SO Much.

    Thanks Buddy..... Back At Cha.... One More Year (YES!!!! ONE!!!!), sweet ole' granny would've made it to the CENTURY MARK.... bless her sweet little heart. Grandmothers are quite a blessing indeed.

    NAD's comin 04/22/17!!!!

    The seller shipped it out yesterday. It's coming from Tempe, Arizona to Washington, D. C. via e-Bay!!!

    Lightly used, and used in conjunction with the NAD 2140 Power Amplifier (which I did not get), and used in a church sound system for at least a decade (perhaps longer), so I hope to be blessed with some excellent sound coming from that thing.

    :hug:

    Yeah, your grandma almost made the century mark! My great grandmother died at 99 too!

    You can say then that your 3140 was Heaven sent! Mahalia Jackson will really sound nice through it! I hope and pray that Ebay seller knows how to package and ship stuff properly!

    When did your Grandfather passed??

    Yeah.... I hope she knows what she's doing when it comes to packing amplifiers and audio equipment as well. I'll find out for sure in a week or so.

    So sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing, Charles. It's never easy letting a family member go, but treasure the memories my friend.
    Sending a prayer of comfort to you, family, & friends.

    Cool stuff Charles & Cool Breeze as usual.
    The both of you have some impressive cuts & gear.
    Enjoy, the both of ya! :)

    My dad had the 5th Dimenstion LP. My mother loved "Wedding Day Blues."

    Thank You V8...

    That means the world to me.

    Aside from my own mother (who preceded grandma (her mother in law) in death), this woman was one of my mothers too.

    I'm going to miss her tremendously.

    Thank You Teach...

    No, it's not easy letting go someone you love so much. All I have now are the all the good times the whole family had when they were here. Along with grandma, some of those other family members are now gone as well. But what great memories did we have, especially during the summer, when we had the family reunions, and the backyard cookouts.

    Those are treasures you never forget.
