    This is a really old thread....heh...

    My sessions don't go to 4am..but usually I listen at night...

    For me...
    - less noise at home: kids asleep, no phone calls, cooking, washing, TV, nothing going on..
    - less noise outside: no cars driving, no construction (even miles away), no neighbors yard work, nothing going on.
    - personally: winding down to sleep, so mentally more relaxed.

    My thoughts as well! Pot has about 5 x's the tar in it's smoke than ciggies, very bad, I have friends smoke outside and change clothes before coming back in the house !! I put dedicated, true grounded wiring in the main listening room before I moved in so I don't have any issues when the A/C is running or the fridge kicks on, and the computers and lights on reostats on on another line as well. Still, late nights with the lights low is the best time of all .

    I listen while I sleep, but I don't really fully utilize the sound system, because I keep it low.

    What a timely thread. I just installed a power regenerator and I was thinking to myself that my system now sounds like it usually does late at night.

    I use the PSA PPP and it seems to do a nice job as it "sees" 5% THD on average on the incoming line voltage, and regenerates to appx 0.8%... still though, not sure if it's an artifact of our reptillian brain cores, but things do (most often) just sound better at night... not just audio systems - but most everything (come to think of it).

    I installed the PSA PPP. I bought one of the $1k "B" stock units. I can't find a mark on it, so I don't know why it was "B" stock. Question for you guys, do you leave it on all the time? The manual says that doesn't shorten the lifespan of the product and the power draw is minimal.

    Hi Steve,

    No. I don't leave mine on. In fact, I use it as the main on/off switch for my entire system (except for my amps which feed off a diff circuit). The remote controlled "on/off" is handy I find. Let me know if you've tried the cleanwave feature. I tried it a couple of times but things didn't seem any diff to me. Also, have you played with multiwave versus non-multi? Thoughts?

    Cheers

    Default back to late night listening

    I listen to music every day, but late night listening sessions come maybe only twice a month. I very much look forward to them, even planning them. That is why I am chiming in on your forum, which I found after googling "late night listening session". So, the reason I'm here; what do you LISTEN to? I am always looking for something new. There is nothing more relaxing than late night after a few drinks and whatever else to enhance the music, which is usually something mellow. In the past I have found Zero 7, Thievery Corporation,The Watson twins, stereolab, John scolfield, Iron and Wine and many more.
    List your favorites,keep this thread going and make your LNLS better. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum bcurt

    There are several threads here on recommended music and who's listening to what. Search "Sunday Morning Music" and "What are you listening to right now"... you'll find volumes!
