"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
By the way I love Sun Ra, Lonnie Smith and Gabor Szabo... @mahgister my dear friend, you are confusing Dr. Lonnie Smith who is one heck of a jazz artist with Lonnie Liston Smith.      
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
We are music. I like to think of music as the universal language. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Woodstock - WE ARE STARDUST     Well I came across a child of God, he was walking along the road And I asked him tell where are you goi... 
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
@mijostyn  Maybe in Indian music and other forms I am not familiar with, but western music is highly structured and deliberate, anything but mystical. Obviously you’ve never listened to recording artists Gábor Szabó, Lonnie Liston Smith, Sun R...

Audio stand needed....Moving main components from mechanical room to listening room
@emergingsoul, The other gear you have also should have casters but especially amplifiers. I don’t think you mean ’casters’ as they are wheels and that’s a tough thing to pull off trying to attach a wheel to an amp or other components . I thin... 
Audio stand needed....Moving main components from mechanical room to listening room
