BEST FEMALE VOCAL EVER
@soundsbeyondspecs   +1!  I couldn't agree more.  I am a huge fan of Melody. All of her albums are worth having.  Meaningful, heartfelt songs sung by a gal who has been through some very rough times.  "My One and Only Thrill" is my favorite song o...

Hello mormark!Welcome to the ranks. If I were to do this audiophile thing all over, I would base my system on a really fine integrated amplifier with ample power to deliver natural dynamics.  From following threads here for years, I would have to ... 
SACD or not
Yep, go for a Marantz.  Built like a tank but play with great finesse.  There are many great sounding SACDs out there that are not symphonic in nature.  Get Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" and Clark Terry's "Portraits".  Those discs will allow y...
