@mikelavigne hey hey!  You can't keep guys like us down :-)  I stalk your system from time to time, it continues to evolve in almost a magical way.  Hope music, and life has been treating you well - hope we catch up soon.  Cheers!

@jond it may be silly, but the whole Tidal release thing just irritated me, bizarre and insulting all at the same time.  It's a business expense so it's not the money, it's the principal, even at the expense of lossless audio.  More resolution and...

@jayctoy I'm still alive :-) Thanks for the recognition.  Truth be told, life just got hectic.  Circa 2007 I sold my business, then entered a period of self-reflection, which set me on a meandering journey.  I moved throughout the country, learnin...

I don't think that is the first time I've made that mistake about the NSX, perhaps it is me looking into my crystal ball and seeing your future :) 
Rowland Concerto or BAT VK-300/SE
No comment on the Rowland? That was my number one choice, with the Bat as number 2. By the way thanks Stubby, I had heard the same thing about the SE model and was leaning more towards a standard tube output model.

Cars. What does the typical audiophile drive?
Just picked up a 2007 Infiniti G35X, with the sub-par "studio on wheel" Bose sound system. 
Sexiest Pop Song Ever?
Woman love Chris Isaak Wicked Games, they all want to be like the girl in the video(can't say I blame them). 
audio aero capitole- how good vs analog?
T-bone nailed it, this subject has been beaten to death, there are analog lovers and digital fans. They both have benefits and limitations anyone not willing to admit that has some vested interest in one format or another. I will add that we have ... 
Amp recommendations for Maggie 3.6?
Parasound JC-1 's are great on 3.6's. If your willing to take a little chance, I've always been curious if a VTL-450 would have enough juice for the maggies and used they are in your price range. I know the 750's will work, but they put you over b...
