First music of the day

I thought it would be interesting to see what we choose to play for our first listen of the day.

Here’s what I started today with:

I have several complete sets of Bach cantatas on CDs. I have been for a few years listening to one at a time each morning.

Excellent choice.

I have two sets of the cantatas.

For me choosing the first listen of the day takes a few minutes of thought. “How do I want to set the morning’s mood?”

I have most of the newer things I’ve acquired on my phone, pretty diverse mixture. I normally put it on shuffle and let it do its thing. For me I find that I latch onto tunes and artist a lot quicker. Every next track is a surprise. Always find myself wanting more.

That will wake you up in the morning. Depending on the time and the morning, I may just hit play on the transport and listen to whatever is sitting in there or stream KEXP into the system.

I often will stream WBGO through Roon. It’s one of my favorite Jazz stations.

Today was a most busy day, and music didn’t hit my eardrums until I sat down to dinner at 5. I knew exactly what I wanted (needed?) to hear—given that the day was so far removed from my “retired man of leisure” persona that I have worked so hard to live up to:

I’ll have to check that station out.

After cleaning all my connections and adjusting the absorber tuning rings to @vmax spec., I will play the Octave Records Bach Suites to start, and will add one of the masters’ Volumes SACD later. I am expecting an upgrade in SQ without spending a penny.

How did it work out?

No question these tuning rings work, but it really depends on cables. I think the more expensive cables with better shielding design benefits less, but @vmax likes them a lot on the whisper cables, as well as on AQ Dragon.

The music? The Octave discs never sound better, and even my daughter said there is a “real” improvement.
