HE 2004 West Cancelled due the worker lockout
Albert, could you please expand on the issue with Chicago and the exhibitors. I attended the Chicago Hi-Fi show a few year ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. It really gave me the itch. I have been looking forward to its return to no avail. I also sen... 
Memories........What made you catch the Audio Bug?
I guess it would have to be many, many years ago when my family was over at a friend's house and we were listening to some music. I think it was around '70 or '71. I don't remember what the music was or what equipment they had, but I do remember a... 
return of the king

what this site needs ...
I agree with octopus. After a deal that went bad recently, I think that feedback tied to a specific sale would add more credibility the sellers' and buyers' rating. I recently suggested this to them on a follow-up email I sent following a dispute.... 
Vandersteen VCC-1
I do not have a home theater system, but from what I have read in various sources it would probably be to your advantage to go with the VCC-1. You will get a better presentation with the Vandersteen line-up than mixing the speakers. They were "mad...

I am in the process right now of finishing my basement. The reason for doing the following is to keep the music from traveling through the floors and ductwork. Also would hope it has some acoustical benefits in the listening area.I don't have an i...
