Terri and I always enjoy summers in Colorado. To be honest, I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be.
The evenings are warm enough the crickets sing their songs, yet cooling down so you can sleep after 10 P.M..
On the weekends we hike; our last at Lake Isabelle in the Indian Peaks Wilderness and the week before, a glacier in the same area. You start most hikes in shorts and T-shirt. Once you get to 12,000 feet you’ve added a light jacket and leggings to stay warm. Boulder’s only a 45 minute drive from the trailhead, so after hiking we have lunch back in town, wearing shorts again. It’s great.
Also this summer I’ve had several wonderful projects afoot: the designer of the Infinity IRSV loudspeaker system in Music Room One, Arnie Nudell, came by for the day and re-positioned and tuned up the system such that it sounds, well, unbelievably better. Arnie’s a true master at setup and you can read more about that day here. If you’ve had the chance to hear the IRS at our offices, it’s worth another visit; so much better the system is.
You’d think I was busy enough but frankly I find it hard to keep my mind fully occupied so I started another project: I am writing a novel (isn’t everyone?). It’s a rip-snorting thriller, with a really interesting concept for the theme, titled “Discovery”. I hope folks will get a kick out of reading it. It’s certainly been a kick to write it!
Lastly, a quick power amplifier update. Legendary designer Bascom King and our own Bob Stadtherr have been working together to finish what I trust will be the final version of the new PS Audio Reference Power Amplifier and, surprise, surprise, it will have one of those funny glowing fire bottles called a vacuum tube in its front end!!
