My best retort to those that think we listen to our stereos more than the music
When a great song comes on the radio while I am in the car, it is magical.End of story. 
Can anyone answer this? What is a blue skinned cable??

What do I need to spend coming from an all-vinyl setup?
@dhcod I know how you feel. I was always a vinyl person until a few years ago, but circumstances changed and I now find myself embracing the benefits that digital music provides. Unlimited music for one low monthly fee is hard to argue with. I wil... 
$595 shipping?Were then sending it in a taxi? 
Ready, set, comment! Speaker cables don’t make a difference?

Anyone have the Answer?
@chorus Your question is very straightforward and I certainly understand why you asked it.Unfortunately, certain users on this site feel like they own it and that they can deride people if a question is not worthy of their response. My guess is th...

@birdscantrowPlease don't judge this site by the obnoxious behavior of certain people. Don't worry, all you need to do is extoll the virtues of springs, Schumann generators or Tekton Moabs and he will be your friend, at least until you ask your ne...

Worst Concerts You Have Attended ??
@feldmanSounds like the Warren Zevon I saw wasn't indicative of him as a live performer. That is very unfortunate, because he was a truly brilliant songwriter. And yes, because of the venue the audience sat in their seats for the entire show. Mind... 
If you had access to a time machine, what concerts would you go back to see?
You are certainly not alone in 2020 being the first no-concert year since, for me, 1969. Tool and LP (Laura Pergolizzi) were on my schedule, but luckily I have seen them before.As to concerts I wish I had seen.The Allman Brothers "Live at the Film...

Worst Concerts You Have Attended ??
Warren Zevon. Introverts and hit records don't work well together.Joe Cocker. Alcoholism and singing don't work well together.JJ Cale. Music was okay, but he sat on a chair with a wide brimmed hat pulled down over his face the whole night. Maybe i... 
Can I place outdoor screen over air vents on top of my amplifier vs. dust/hair entering?
I am not trying to be funny, but why not use something that will actually stop dust. Instead of an outdoor screen, why not use something like pantyhose. Seriously, it allows air flow but will trap dust better. I used my wife's pantyhose as a secon...
