New Pink Floyd release
Forget the wokeness, how about $290 for what is basically a 10 song album with a commonly found bootleg of a 1974 concert attached to it... now I'd gladly pay whatever they asked for a good filmed version of seeing them play live back in March 197... 
If there was only ONE album/cd/release you can listen to, over and over.............
Abbey Road, Giant Steps, Kind of Blue, Bach: Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin by Nathan Milstein, Keith Jarrett Bremen-Lausanne, Pat Metheny Group White album, Tales From Topographic Oceans, Brain Salad Surgery in any order. This is as far d... 
Hi-end audio is a big zero

Hi-end audio is a big zero
+1 Sound Approach in VA is exemplary.  
The Beatles Revolver
Played a review copy of the upcoming Revolver release and both the stereo and mono remixes are superb. Instruments are well defined and in proper proportion. I'd give Giles an A.  
Roger Waters Live Last Night in Glendale,AZ
At $3 a ticket, Jim Morrison got away with being an egotistical a$$hole.  At $15 a ticket, Axl Rose got away with it as well. Neither were political but were repulsive. Waters, with the help of his bandmates, wrote some classic songs that sold mi... 
Joni Mitchell remasters on the way
Court and Spark has a glitch where People's Parties is repeated - it's there as part of Free Man In Paris and then again as a separate track. In terms of the quality of these Bernie Grundman remasters (reportedly done with Joni sitting there overs... 
This place is getting sloooooooweeeerrr......
Only issue is the security theater bs...it tells me connection is secure, I read a thread, am asked to log in to comment and it goes back to verification again but never does...waste of time and electricity...especially when I’m clicking on links ... 
Where do you want your system to go when you go?
The other day I happened to notice how much several of my larger Grateful Dead boxed sets were selling for online. I made a quick listing of those and all of the other now much pricier boxed sets, from King Crimson to classical and connected her w... 
Many of us want to Changegrade instead of Upgrading
How many of us go through phases where we listen to more jazz than rock or more classical than jazz etc for awhile? As each of those genres has a somewhat signature sound that's a bit different than the others, a related listening preference might... 
Why is Audiogon checking my browser?
You'd think clicking on a link that Audiogon sent in an an email digest wouldn't be subject to such foolishness. There are better ways to protect a site than Cloudflare...without imposing onerous processes on legitimate users. Site ops can see the... 
MoFi controversy
Along these lines - the best sounding versions of the first 4 Led Zeppelin albums I have (including all of Page's remasters) are from recent Japanese needle drops of the 1st vinyl pressings from back in the day sold on cds. Digital doesn't automat... 
Cables recommendation
Whatever you choose, be wary of changing them out all at once. In fact, it's best to do one component at a time, factoring in any breaking in period, etc. Be objective and open to the possibility that a difference in sound might not necessarily m... 
New equipment
Unfortunately, different isn't always better, and buyer's remorse is very real. Good luck on your journey, sounds like you already know the path...  
Should Audiogon forum dealers be held to a different standard?
Perhaps the YMMV disclaimer should be imprinted on all posts here? What falls between the cracks of what you propose aren't the dealers, who properly identify themselves, and who should have valuable knowledge given their exposures to multiple pro...
