The Office Rig and the Lucas Labs(CF)Linestage

Post by Magnaryder » Tue Sep 30, 2014 4:29 pm

Today I got my office rig back up and running. I bein so happy!!!! I've added the Alesis Monitor Ones, a Velodyne CHT powered sub and my Lucas Labs(CF) Linestage. Right now, I'm playing a ripped copy of Brian Culbertson's 'It's on Tonight' I got from Eddie several years ago. Freeking thing sounds wonderful. I still need to work on the sub integration but other than that it ROCKS!!

Any of the rest of you have an office rig or other unconventional rig?

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Damn, I thought I would be first :-" George did you replace the stockers, wire the Obligattos on the other output or install a mbb switch?

Today I put an ear on '3 Faces' by Mileage Gilbert. It was a disc that circulated at 'Fest '10. Great music and outstanding recording. Got the Baldwin tubes in the CF amp today. Tomorrow it's Telefunken time. I am going home to listen to an unopened copy of one of my fav LPs. I have the Velodyne sub integrated nicely.

I'll post pics of it later...when you see them you'll know why.
