Sorry, didn't mean to cause a rise in blood pressure. Just a little friendly banter.Your reply invites a similar vibe, but I'll simply move on. Carry on with heady, serious conversations. 
The sonic rightness of a mono system.

Dealer Discount
If you're concerned how much you have to open your wallet-most of us, it's all about how YOU interact with a dealer. Your own skills at selling yourself as a person who deserves the better price.That said, I've had some exposure to what actual cos...

Mag Lev Turntable. Your Thoughts?
Seems like more of a conversational piece, when you're  entertaining  non audio friends- especially those who like to listen to their phones.Lets see this concept on a SERIOUS platform, by one of the established manufacturers. Not holding my breath. 
Classical, Rock, Jazz etc. are your tastes evolving with time?
