ESS and Heil air-motion tranformer - any thoughts?
Many years ago I worked for an ESS dealer. I was impressed with the the ESS speakers at that time. Amazingly clear highs, really good bass for their size. The Heil air-motion transformer reminds me very much of a good ribbon tweeter. It would be f... 
I get a "clicking" on some of my burnt CD's, why?
I use exact audio copy. I have found though that if you burn you audio cd's back out to the cdr too fast you can run into problems. All audio cd's I burn at at 4x max.
