|Best Live Album Ever...|
Sinatra--the Studio Album
|Lifespan of a quality solid state amplifier?|
Even inexpensive solid state amps and preamps seem to last essentially forever.
|Do You Love Music or Do You Love Hi-Fi?|
Back in the day, recordings of steam engine trains ruled. Plus ping pong games when stereo appeared. Music need not apply in order for gear to be bought
|Just Turned 50...|
Farmdoc....I too have underwear older than 50...but I forget TO wear it (or anything else) sometimes.
|Can Vandy's get along with cats?|
I have three cats and a year ago moved my Vandy's into the living room where they can now get to them. I feared the worst but the most that they have done is laid down on the top of the speakers where the fabric makes a soft place to sleep. None o...

They didn't like it, so no review.
|I'm looking for good pre amp with bass & treble|

|Why do some model names use "MKII"?|
Mark II was the second king of France.
|Need help with Jazz|
Your criteria eliminates at least 90% of the great recorded jazz currently available. The tail (system) is wagging the dog (music)....imo
|JVC XRCDs -- your experience?|
A mixed bag for me. Beethoven 6 and 3 sound terrible. The three Coltrane xrcd's I have sound great. And the price IS high.
|Is Stereophile seeking a new reader demographic?|
How COULD the subscription price offered be $74.00??? The normal subscription price via the web or the inserted cards is like $13. Something is wrong here. Please clarify. Thanks.
|Can the Onix SP3 be used with a pre-amplifier?|
