I have all sorts of fantasy design plans for when I finally finish my basement. I want it to be my office, my studio, my music performance space and my music listening lair. Budgetary realities aside, I’d have dreams for a high-end two-channel double monoblock-powered stereo system with a high-end turntable and a set of speakers that cost more than the annual GDP of a small Pacific nation.

Meghan Trainor is probably begging for a dinner invitation. Read more at Bobby Owsinski’s music production blog.
