The Honey Drippers - Volume One. Good stuff. Some of Plant's best. A shame there was no volume 2. 
Anyone have experience with Aerial Acoustics 6Ts?
I think I gave an update in another thread but I did get the 6Ts. I was able to audition then with the Bryston 5 channel 140 watt amp they were originally paired with. Obviously they sounded amazing. But the Bryston required a pre-amp etc and that... 
The Tragic Decline of Music Literacy (and Quality)
@bdp24 , Are you seriously suggesting that the decline in public schools teaching the humanities began on the right? Even if you could prove such a thing, it would be hard to support that that is still the case. Technology has driven the STEM curr...

I’m a relatively new member her, a year or so maybe, but I recall a member, Elizabeth, who was a frequent poster here. She was waaaaaay into hi-fi. Knew her stuff. Knew what she liked.....but was also in constant pursuit of that last tiny incremen... 
Women who enjoy quality speakers
Some people, including women, simply do not care about and are not moved by what we audiophiles call sound quality. Much of my equipment was inherited and spent some time in my wife's sister's basement. Her sister is a trained musician, she sings ...

So much of high end audio is designed to exploit typically masculine traits. Bigger, better, faster, more. Endless dissatisfaction. Endless fretting over what we might be missing and what some other dude says about our stuff. Sure, women are susce...
