Water Lily Acoustics recordings are good. You may try "Kambara Music in Native tongues".  
Heavy Metal Anyone?
I’m a bit taken aback at the statement regarding Knopfler not being able to make in metal, then settling. Mark plays very difficult pieces. If you listen to other guitarists they will state that Knopfler is quite good. I don’t agree that any genre...

Best Value Line Stage Tube Preamps?

Help in putting together my system with used equipment on Audiogon and eBay.
Buy an integrated amp when you have a preamp you already love? Nobody has explained what they mean by get an integrated because it’s better. What I think they mean is it is easier to get the preamp section and the power section to match with an in... 
Budget Audiophile system under 2k
What is the size of the room that the music will be played in? That would make a difference as far as speakers go. What is the best thing he has ever heard? An audiophile is someone who does like quality sound, so much so that he (or rarely she) w...
