They say TV kills the party so we killed the TV and partied.
Since 2005 I have not had broadcast television. At first it was a bit of a shock, having to do other things to entertain but I adjusted. We replaced broadcast with on demand solutions like Netflix which remains to be a nice solution for watching a film, documtary and select shows.
For sometime now I wanted to remove TV altogether but my wife being a person of reason suggested that we move the TV to another room and make the living room into a place where we can visit with friends and do creative stuff like write so we replaced the TV with one of Vals Technics 1200 MKII, a Pro-Ject preamp and powered JBL speakers.
Now as we get ready for a day at the Blanton museum we can jam a bit and it feels right.
