nothing beats a nice pizza. this is from a place called MOZZA in los angeles. very difficult to get a table, so i suggest just sitting at the bar. their wine selection is superb. BUT, it's not cheap.

Just a snap shot where I am staying this morning

After a long day .......... for dinner I went to see Sexy Mama a Japanese lady who owns a Shabu Shabu in Orange County. Superb Angus Beef. Sexy Mama treats you like her son, just cannot stop feeding you. Its not a big place, but the hospitality is second to none. All sauces are home made and she demo's how to cook and serve each item.

On9Keung, if you cannot have a good sound, or good sex, good food is an alternative and kind of therapeutic.  
 
Here is my lunch today - very balanced with some huge prawns ^__^

There are folks out there, yours truly included, who do not have the qualities which make them appeal to the opposite sex, or the same sex, for that matter.  
It just happens that On9Keung is the only one on9 enough to acknowledge his inferiorities.  
Men want to brag about what they have between their legs, as much as they want to brag about their turntables.  
I’m not sure if I would be chipping in on this column this time of the day, or wasting my time chitchatting with the old farts at Saturday Yum Cha, if I had Wong Sir’s physical appearance, poise, and deep pockets.  
Good sex, just like good sound, is not always accessible to everyone.

I am delight to see such an active discussion of the Garrard 301 and how it compares to sex. To me I love both, why compare, you can have both and they are not mutually exclusive.

However, I found this description, "in terms of spatial wholeness, the realism with which individual voices pop out of the sonic whole, explosively real nuances, timing, momentum and sheer force." is indeed quite applicable to the Quad ESL 57 too.  
 
daiwok, I can't help thank you again for bringing me back to the "right" track.

Statement ? No. The pendulum is perpetually drooping !  
 
I guess she must be enthralled by one of those silly tone-arms of daiwok's, which gets an oversized counterweight, making it ever erecting and never goes down.

the Garrard is unsurpassed (even by a $100,000 turntable which was described by another reviewer's wife as being "better than sex") "in terms of spatial wholeness  
____________________________________________________________________________________  
 
Oh! The woman was actually referring to that $100,000 turntable, not the Garrard; so I will have to think twice. The Garrard may just be meditation; and spatial wholeness? Goodness me, that's no good for sex for the male gender. You're right, drwkng.

Come to think about it, it probably depends on whom your partner is :-)  
_______________________________________________________________  
 
I have thought about this, thekong, but the woman didn't say better than sex with her husband or whoever. So I conclude it may not be referring to an absolute value and the experience shall transcend with better partners, just like if you have a plastic plinth, it's more like making with a rubbermate etc. Is that the reason you go for slate? But why slate ?

It just happens that I have one of the rarest Garrard 301, cream color with grease bearing. However, since I am stilling waiting for the slate plinth, I can’t confirm whether it is better than sex yet :-)

no luck. it only works for the female gender^-^ and renders the male redundant.

posted by a fellow member on Lenco Heaven .....  
 
 
 
 
Part Two of Art Dudley's Garrard 301 adventure arrived today with the new issue of Stereophile.  
 
Art has built a plinth for his 301. It won't be anything new to those here at LH who have built plinths. He used birch plywood and hide glue, and handheld power tools.  
 
The result? Let's just say the prices of Garrard 301s are not going to be declining as a result of this article. The rumble he reported last month, when he was listening to the Garrard on a lightweight plinth with a thin, sprung topplate, is gone...just not there any more, he writes. As to overall sound, another turntable does a bit better in one aspect; another does a bit better in something else. But he reports that the Garrard is unsurpassed (even by a $100,000 turntable which was described by another reviewer's wife as being "better than sex") "in terms of spatial wholeness, the realism with which individual voices pop out of the sonic whole, explosively real nuances, timing, momentum and sheer force. No other turntable...sounds as forceful.  
 
"I prefer to select a product because I hear a lot of things right with it. The Garrard 301 fills that bill perfectly well."
