Really... a day dedicated to... as Paul McGowan of PS Audio explains:

October 2, 2021
by Paul McGowan


Every single day of the year there are multiple celebrations of every imaginable topic. In fact, this month there are more celebrations than there are days in the year.
And, among those, and special to all of us reading this post, is the 6th annual, Audiophile Day.
It’s a day to remember why we’re here. For some it’s the gear, for others the music, still others the camaraderie.
We are unique. A wonderful mix of good-hearted people from around the world. People in love with music and its faithful reproduction in the home.
To all of us, a happy Audiophile Day!

A good friend of mine, visiting from Hamburg, Germany, dropped in for dinner with us last night. He had to listen to my Sony PS-F9 as he was intrigued by the concept of a portable record player.

A lot of engineering went into the PS-F9 and its little brother the PS-F5 - a technical marvel of its time.

And the PS-F9 has a built-in FM transmitter, so I can tune my A/V receiver's FM station into a frequency and listen to the portable playing a record through my A/V system, remotely, without any direct wire connections.

Does it play both sides or do you have to flip?

Yes, it's a linear-tracker with a quartz-locked direct drive motor.

You have to flip the record to play the other side.

While you guys are goofing off and celebrating Audiophile day, I've been Vacuuming and scrubbing terlets, getting ready for the final walk through at 4:30 ish.... My POD showed up this morning (missing the 8 track). and the worker bees are coming at 0900 to stuff it. I guess I'll celebrate with you guys and go over to the sports bar and have 57 beers while I wait for the new owners to get the hell out of my house..... My hands smell like Scrubbing Bubbles with a hint of windex..... Mmmmmmm

Had a little fun, yesterday playing the old system:


And the 1987 song from Was (Not Was). I chose a fitting song to play on the old system.
