    Audiophile Heaven, Revisited

    Issue 151

    What will the audiophile section of heaven be like? Andy pondered it briefly in Issue 149, and pays another visit here:

    1. There will be a Hawaiian lagoon with PerfectWaves controlled by Paul McGowan.
    2. All the floors are made from vintage Magneplanar woofer panels powered by Audio Research all-vacuum-tube monoblock amps from 1978.
    3. Everyone has Eames chairs in their listening rooms and they never, ever hurt.
    4. No one can speak any four-letter word with “os” in the middle, like “Bose.”
    5. CDs last forever but no one cares.
    6. Plasma tweeters are still a thing.
    7. Saying the words “psychologically irrelevant” gets you a celestial time out.
    8. Cables do not matter, ever; but they are all very thin and cheap.
    9. Ivor Tiefenbrun spells angel “ainjell.”
    10. Record cleaning fluid flows from a natural fountain, works flawlessly, tastes like Louis XIII, and is free.
    Is it safe to clean records with alcohol? Here's a very expensive way to try: Louis XIII cognac from Remy Martin.
