Zu audio
hey @bsimpson ever spend time in front of the Blade 2? Ref One? They are 'decent' ? Anyhoots I've owned all kinds of speakers, big and small, ESLs, etc. I've gone back to Zu recently as can't find any that do what they do. Sanders' ESLs came close... 
Question for EBTG fans.....
@thosb I've seen more shows at The Cedar than anywhere else. Lotsa African bands in particular play it. It's on the west bank U of M. I've seen Tinariwen there 3x. Now THERE'S a hypnotic band live or recorded. Check them out!

Maple Shades Double Helix V2 or Anti Cables?
Antis have a trial period, just try them. I've used them in my rig for at least 10 years. How would anyone in an anonymous internet forum know which will sound better in your house?  
Anticables and the Jumper Effect: Or how I learnedto stop worrying and love my system!
I recently loomed up my rig with Anti power cables, all around. Never going back to anything else. I also have their speaker cables (and jumpers). Their SCs are not a good fit to my ears with Zu. Too much reality  ;)  Big fan of their company in g...

Melody Gardot - Which albums to buy?
I have the hi rez "The Absence" flac and it always knocks me right out. If you have a good rig, it's primo stuff.  Worrisome heart also as good. Only have those two. Both delish.

@pcc67 my classic Cherry was ~$2k a year ago, brand new. Send them a note. Mine was unadvertised. They do a home trial, can't beat that. The guy is an amp wizard.
