    Hi Greg,

    I've had the 3BX forever and of course it seemed to have more of an effect with analaog recordings than digital. I do occasionally use it on older CDs that were made from a not so good recording. It's a piece of nostalga that I'm not ready to give up yet.

    Default New Photos...

    Took out the McIntosh MCD205 and replaced it with my Squeezebox and then took some new photos. I can't say enough how happy I am with the Squeezebox.

    Very sweet looking setup Tom. Have you considered getting another Carver amp for the woofers? Also, what's the purpose for the DBX 3BX?

    I think I'd rather just let the Denon continue to power the woofers until I do another upgrade which will be probably a Sunfire Cinema Signature to power everything... Not sure when that will be.

    The 3BX is a Dynamic Range expander.. It's hooked to a tape loop so I can put it into the signal path at the touch of a button.. It was more useful when I had my reel-to-reel and turntable, but I found that it helps put a little bit of PUNCH into MP3s coming from the Squeezebox.

    Here's a thread that explains how the 3BX works:

    Default Update!

    Sold my DBX 3bx on Craigslist and got a DBX 4bx! It's more user friendly (has remote) and a little better sounding than the 3bx was. It really adds a warm tone to the digital recordings, making them sound more like LPs.

    Got a new camera for my birthday and took some new photos...

    Enjoy!

    Tom,

    You got one heck of a digital camera! Those new photos look awesome!!! Looks like you can jump right into the picture! I'm impressed

    Big congrats on the new dbx 4BX, it looks (and I'm sure sounds), fantastic! And like you said, it makes things so much easier having a remote. Thanks for sharing

    I thought Dusty Rose was a professional wrestler back in the 70's.

    As for the walls, my grandpa would have said they were "Fox Pecker Pink".
