Looking for the ultimate amplifier

Last weekend we had our last Rocky Mountain International Audiofest show at the Marriott in the Tech Center.  The show will live on at another venue,

I always enjoy wandering this show, not only does it have some insanely good audio audio systems to listen to, and it has a number of folks who push the state of the art.

  I jest and tell people that my Little Dot MKIV SE wants to grow up to be this amplifier, but it really doesn’t.  There’s a world of difference between a Chinese headphone amp that’s designed for a specific price point, and this pictured Bob Carver amplifier that designed to be the state of the art.  

For those of you wonder, this amplifier is 75 W stereo amplifier.  It did sound very nice.

Doors open Denver

A few weeks ago we had Doors open Denver.  For those of you who aren’t in Denver, a number of places open up to the public so you can see things you couldn’t normally see.

Mountain States Telephone Building

You can see this without going into the building, but I think the security guards were more forgiving of someone sitting on the ground and trying to get the right angle.

In the days of cell phones, I wonder how long it will be before folks forget that phone booths ever existed.

For our tour of the building, they brought us inside and showed us the executive offices and their museum.

One of the pictures I wanted to get was a nice picture of the inside of a cathedral.

St John’s

I have to thank the fellow who was patiently explaining the history of the church.  He was forgiving of me, once again sitting on the floor trying to get just the right angle.
