Price vs performance
I follow the belief, you get what you pay for.  I do it with everything I buy.  Food, cars, houses, etc.  Electronics are the same way.  I usually just buy the best I can afford at the time.  What is the best?  Impossible question to answer.  Musi... 
Song (or music) you want played at your funeral.
The Show Must go on-Queen.  Life will continue to progress without me here.  I never understood why people cry at a persons death.  Throw a damn party at mine, celebrate your life , like I did everyday.   
I wan't the best in this price range
What are your options in Australia?  What is available?  I know you pay triple or double compared to US and Europe.  What about Australian made speakers,  why Import if you can get local.  My drive is not five hours like yours, but I have driven f... 
Why the fascination with subwoofers?
It's affordable to add a sub to your system, versus buying full range.  You do not have to spend big bucks to get a sub now.  What full range speakers are you referring too?  It all depends on your mains, if your speakers are flat down to 20 hertz... 
How good is your system
My system is so good I see musical notes dancing from my speakers.  I hear the silence of deep space when the music stops playing. My system has parts from all over the world, it's gotta to be good. 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Listened to Gun's and Roses, Mercyful Fate "Don't Break the Oath", Iron Maiden " Number of the Beast".  Tonight will be a prog night. 
Blue Jeans Cable Sound Good???
I have BJC LC-1's in my system, they are a good entry level interconnect.  I'm slowly upgrading my interconnects to Morrow Audio.  They seem to offer my cd player better sound than BJC or AC Cobra's.  Next up is the turntable interconnects.  Just ... 
Death of Rock 'n' Roll
Rock will never die as long as we listen and buy it.  Hip-Hop is dominating the charts and replaced Rock as the most popular last year.  I think it is sad what kids listen too today.  I remember New Wave tried to take over Rock in the 80's, it did... 
CD ripper
EAC=Bit perfect rips 
I want to be moved and have the music touch my soul!
It's the music that has soul and life to them.  How a song on the radio reminds you of a past memory, one that you have forgotten over time.  If it is not exciting some emotion from you, switch music styles, find something new to explore.  Explore... 
Just wanted to share that I got a new reviewing gig with Six Moons.com website
Congratulations Teejay.  Look forward to reading your reviews. 
Tonearms with no anti-skate adjustment
I have not used anti-skate since I got my vpi classic 2 with the JWM-10.5.  I did use it on pro-ject table with a 9 inch tonearm.  If you need it, use it. 
How much difference will a phono stage upgrade make?
Keep the post coming, I'm getting lots of useful info.  Thinking about an upgrade myself.  Running a Jolida JD9, vpi classic 2 and ortofon quintet black.  Looking the parasound jc3+ or the jr.  Going to research the puffin.  Thanks for all the pos... 
Music I would succumb to under torture
Scream metal would be the only thing I would call torture.  I like anything with a good beat.  Rap has good beats but I can not relate to the lyrics.  Look up the suicide song on google.  That's a pretty cruel test, It's all off key.  I think it i... 
Whats the deal?
Some tractors are beautiful where others are just plain looking.  What matters most is the work they can do.  Just like some speakers look like art and function excellent there are just plain speakers that sound magical.  Can see my equipment anyw...
