1972 Ducati Imola Racer Replica

(Click to enlarge image. Go ahead! It's worth it!)

You say you've already got a full Crimson Electronics/Tocaro/Resolution Audio system and you don't know what to do with all the cash you have left over? You could always head on over to the Deus Ex Machina website and find a nice bike for those Saturday trips down to the used record store.

I think the 1972 Ducati Imola Racer Replica is pretty nice, but they seem to have sold it. Don't worry, they still have plenty of other nice bikes to choose from!

Hey, Austin and Austin visitors, it's SXSW again! It's gonna be a busy week, so make sure to set aside some time to come hear the new Tocaro 40D Loudspeakers.

We'll also be playing the Crimson 710/640E-III preamp/amp combination, the Resolution Cantata Music Center and the ATC SCM50SL three-way monitors.

We're downtown, right by Whole Foods. Call us at (512) 236-9100 and let us know you're coming by!

Symphony Fantastique

La Vida Breve (1954)

Shostakovich Symphony No. 5

If you're not too busy right now, how about heading over to Symphony Fantastique, which is a nice little website that features vintage, graphic classical album covers and is published by Jive Time Records. Jive Time Records is a nice little record store in Seattle, Washington.

While you're at it, check out their Gallery of Album Cover Galleries including Technical Spectacle, the gallery of stereo (and quadrophonic!) test record covers (like the gems below!) Most of you probably own (or owned) most of these test records. Just don't leave them out when you have ladies over.
