Christmas Trees

10 posts in this topic

I'm going to regret this (some of you live in Alaska), but i thought it might be nice to have a Tree-off. Let's post pictures of our Christmas trees.

I'd like to get the ball rolling, but i can't. Turns out we're short on lights and can't get decorating until at least tomorrow. 

While waiting for the lights on the tree in the lounge, we have a smaller artificial tree in the kitchen. My wife started working on this on Sunday, and here is a picture of her efforts with the lights.

Aren't i lucky she's a nice person. Because she can't dress trees for shit.

Well, nothing too fancy for @Aurian and I. We have a little corner with our gifts and a small plastic tree. Not allowed wood trees here, anyhoo.

How can you be short on lights on a 2ft tree? 

Holy cow Jez, presents wrapped and everything, wow! I don't even know what I'm buying yet.

OK. She has redeemed herself with the main tree. I did the lights though.

Nice speakers!

They really are.

Monitor Audio Gold GX300

Connected to Cambridge Audio Azure 851N Network Player/DAC and 851A amp. 

Fed from my music server, through the amazing and totally inexpensive Google Chromecast Audio, using an optical connector. 

I wanted a player that would take an unadulterated digital source, of high quality, and keep it digital all the way through to the DAC in the CA Azure (which is a really good DAC). No naughty analogue along the way. The Chromecast lets me do that for £35.

We have an 8 ft fiber optic tree that lights up the living room like a rave.  It is gaudy, ostentatious, seizure-inducing, and my favorite tree ever.

I tossed out the idea to the wife the other day that rather than having to put up with the fuss of a Christmas tree, you know ... decorating and undecorating, cleaning and all that crap ... that maybe this year we would go with a Festivus Pole instead.  She didn't think much of it.

It’s because Aurian panics when it’s Dec 1st and there’s still shopping. And she wraps gifts early because there’s nowhere to hide them around here :P
