When I’m 64 😱


📊📈📉📊📈📉 An extensive study in the U.S.A found that the most productive age in human life is between 60-70 years of age.

 The 2nd.  most productive stage of the human being is from 70 to 80 years of age.

 The 3rd.  most productive stage is from 50 to 60 years of age.

 The average age of NOBEL PRIZE winners is 62 years old.

 The average age of the presidents of prominent companies in the world is 63 years.

 The average age of the pastors of the 100 largest churches in the U.S.A. is 71.

 The average age of the Popes is 76 years.

 This tells us in a way that it has been determined, that the best years of your life are between 60 and 80 years.

 A study published in NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE found that at age 60, you reach the TOP of your potential and this continues into your 80s.

 Therefore, if you are between 60 -70 or 70-80 you are in the BEST and 2nd.  level of your life.

 ..... friends, this walk called life is just beginning 🥳

… or so 😏

So true 😊

J. F. Pontefract 🥇


This man is THE GENIUS behind some of the best sounding


Harmonia Mundi (France) recordings… among the very best!


K. H. Stockhausen’s and other gems


I had to browse some hundreds discs to find them, but I found some… 

I remember I bought my mint copy of “Hymnen” in Argentina and the seller shipped the disc in a padded envelope with 20+ colored stamps 🙏🥇🙏

Have many more KHS’ discs but spread on shelves… am trying to stock them all together…

Still searching…

B & O BM5 stereo ribbon mike


Bought this microphone from a gentleman in Australia for cheap last year and had it restored in a few weeks by a UK-based ribbon microphones specialist, XAudia, who changed the poor-quality, low gain inner transformer with an higher gain (+6db) bespoke miniature transformer.

The result is no less than awesome: superb clarity, silky, extended highs and natural dynamics.

A true wolf in sheep skin.
