COLLEEN MURPHY ON KLIPSCH
“I’ve been a Klipsch enthusiast for over two decades,” said Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, founder of Classic Album Sundays. “I’ve dj’d in venues from London to New York City to Tokyo on dance floors surrounded by multiple Klipschorns, the same speakers I have squeezed into the living room of my home and that started Classic Album Sundays. Needless to say, Klipsch is in my DNA.”
BABY'S ALL RIGHT (NYC)
Classic Album Sundays has a monthly listening session at Baby's All Right in the borough of Brooklyn in New York City. Past listening sessions focused on Neil Young's "Harvest", The Cure's "Disintegration" and Grace Jones' "Nightclubbing."
A pair of Klipsch La Scala speakers and SW-115 subwoofer are complimented by an audio menu installed by Stuarts Audio: Rega Apheta MC Cartridge, Rega P9 Turntable, McIntosh C2500 preamplifier, McIntosh MC452 power amplifier and AudioQuest Interconnects/cabling.
Simply put, this may be the possible demo of Klipsch La Scala speakers that you can find anywhere in the country.
The hour before each Classic Album Sundays listening session, the presenter plays music that is representative of the time period, allowing one to properly get in the mood for the day's album.
