    it's nighttime somewhere...

    Catching Gary's Red on 91.3 WUNH http://wunh.org/polkaparty for those not within 25 miles. There aren't many folks doing radio like this anymore. He's worth your time.

    Jazz on 90.9 WDCB, on the Pioneer TX-9800. It's sounding good in mono (difficult to get it in stereo with an indoor antenna).

    14890428515761951556873.jpg enjoying a little listen from 106.5 in North Carolina. Some good modern alternative tonight on a Sanyo 2050. Just cleaned the pots and checking the volume control. Now on to cleaning the tuner... Thanks to a thread on here, should be reading strong shortly lol

    Nice Mac tuner! What I remember about that one is some really incredible selectivity. It has no problem picking out a weaker signal right next to a strong one.

    Listening to WDRV (FM ~ 96.9) outta Chi-town on an Adcom GTP-502 pre/tuner.
    Tuner aint nothing to write home about but it's a strong signal so it comes in nice & clear on just about any tuner in the house.
    And usually the later it is ~ the better the music is.

    Right now it's "Tom Sawyer" by Rush,which suits me just fine,as I like the band & like the song.

    FWIW

    Listening to my Yamaha T-2 and late night Jazz on KNKX (connects) 88.5 independent radio out of Tacoma WA. This station used to be KPLU and owned by Pacific Lutheran University who tried to sell it to the University of Washington late last year. Fearing this excellent station may alter it's wounderful Jazz focused broadcasts,18K donations netted $7M dollars to keep the station independent. It is now owned by a non-profit community group. I am very happy to say it is still transmitting crystal clear with 68K watts from the top of tiger mountain and remains a most excellent Jazz station!

    WDRV outta Chicago currently playing the Doors "Riders On The Storm".

    Tuner is an Adcom pre/tuner GTP-502 with an el'cheapo Parts Express dipole antenna.
    Rest of the system includes a Vector Research VQ-115 EQ in the EPL and a Adcom GFA-535 MkI amp with JBL LX-22 speakers and a Celestion S20 Subwoofer.

    Power is handled by an Adcom ACE-515 and there is also a Schiit Optimodi DAC fed from my Desktop PC via the SB Zx optical out.

    I got pics of this rig in an album here >>>> http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?media/albums/main-br-2-1-system-pics.406/

    Here's one of those pics vvvv.
