Movin' On Up

It’s that time of the year when my heart turns to nostalgic things like chestnuts roasting on an open fire and moving to a new house with a dedicated listening room—spoiler alert on the latter.

It seems The Audiophile has found an acre on a mountain that needs a couple of nut-roasters with a hankering for a dedicated listening room. Have no fear, audiophiles, The Listening Room will be separated from the nuts and the fire with the skillful installation of two layers of drywall, some mass loaded vinyl and a special green glue that is far superior to plain old white glue haunted by the mooing of the cow that sacrificed hoof and horn in its making.

Since this acre of mountain is currently nothing more than grass and clouds, the move will not be anytime soon. In fact, thanks to the brave new world in which we live, our acoustic utopia will not be move-in ready for 9 - 145 months depending on the supply chain for windows, doors, appliances, and acoustically conscientious glue.

In the meantime, you’ll find us doing our best to critically listen to all the melodies with nothing more than a single layer of drywall between us and what might be called “normal people doing normal things during mostly normal hours” in our holly jolly neighborhood.
