Good Vibes

1. Abi Farrell Music

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Abi Farrell is a beautiful singer and artist.  Shoutout to ๐ŸŽต The Big AC Records Live Soul Revue Tour. “It’s gonna be impossible not to dance and it’s all going to be a bit emotional (in a good way) as we celebrate all we’ve been up to in the past few years.”

2. Ferit Odman

๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท Ferit Odman is an amazing jazz drummer and he’s also an audiophile! Go check out and his Insta to see what he’s listening on and to.

3. Audiophiles Giving Back

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Steve is giving good vibes daily into our community through his many interviews and sharing viewer systems. Did you check out the viewer systems compilation video, or submit a picture of your system? Did you get featured? Which one is your favorite, or one youโ€™re most curious about?

Me; those Tektons, WOW. Thanks Steve! 

4. How Schiit’s Made

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Jana Dagdagan video creator films Jason Stoddard Co-Founder of Schiit Audio on the manufacturing process of the Tyr choke-input mono block amplifier, high performance and affordable-ish. Thank you, Jana, Jason, John, and audio community.

7. Digital 01

๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Hans Beekhuyzen AES Member, writer and reviewer has been providing no nonsense digital audio reviews for many years. Do you follow Hans?

8. Living Her Best ROSIE

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Are you overcoming circumstances to empower one or many? Rise Up Rosie @rise_up_rosie is a platform to share empowering stories. My schoolyard audiophile friend Emiko @ThatHiFiGirl talks about what it means to be a woman audiophile and welcomer of others into our community – whether you know it yet or not. โ€œMusic ultimately is one medium that can โ€“ and has โ€“ changed the world time after time.โ€ Gender has no boundaries in how we RISE UP, just do it. 

9. Does Cork Beat Felt? 

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Chris at Analog Restorations is an audiophile giving back. Have you tried a cork platter mat upgrade? Why not have it with your logo, custom design, or perhaps with Karen Payton art.

Limited Edition Platter Mats to support Ukrainian Humanitarian Relief by Analog Restorations are also still available.

10. Throw Your Best!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ I applaud Danny for doing it again, tackling the tweaks. In his latest video โ€œWhatโ€™s up with Audiophile Cable Risers?โ€ Danny talks about demonstrable effects of risers. Will this impact your system, it depends on the bottlenecks in your system, so maybe yes or no.
