  1. I really loved MOG and my Favorites list. Beats sucks big time. I like listening to the whole album the way the artists intended.
  2. How high can you hear? Did you mean can you hear when you are high?
  3. Yes please. Venture Audio speakers w/ Hegel amp. Burmester and also Wadia. Thanks
  4. ^Stay with your Audio Logic. Jerry Ozment was a genius, and tubes no less. Can I get a "amen!"
  5. Very nice German made cable. Great price too, thanks.
  6. Top on the left hand corner on this site ^: Wadia. http://www.whathifi.com/review/s7i http://www.theaudiobeat.com/equipment/wadia_s7i.htm
  7. Check out the review at hifi-advice.com This guy seems to be a straight shooter.
  8. Thy are not as popular as some because the do not have a strong dealer/high retail base. They assume the customer places value and quality above, "My gear costs more than yours, therefore, mine is better." winky-wink.
  9. I am sorry, but all of a sudden this thread has become rather (for lack of a better word) boring. Please, no offense to Barry.
  10. I listened to Barry's streaming recordings. Once again (not to sound like a broken record), I can understand how the lower res might sound inferior or bad to some people. But to me on my system, it seems you are trying to count how many angles are on a pin head.We are talking about very small increments, and frankly, I would rather have/get better speakers, than trying to squeeze the last drop out of the toothpaste.
  11. "Why on earth not, if you want to?" I am all in favor of spending, believe me! What I ment it is kind of silly in the grand scheme of things (Dafur, etc..) to spend so much money on toys when it could go to feed the poor and unfortunate in this day and age, personaly speaking for myself. Do I feel quilty? Sometimes. Do I still spend? Ubetcha.
  12. While awaiting his new Focal Stella speakers, and a stack Mark Levinson HT/Hi-Fi gear, I convinced my friend to hook up hi $48,000 Nordost Odin speaker cables to his little B&W studio/office speakers. They are connected to a Marantz receiver and 65" Runco plasma. The sound shocked me how much it was an improvement over his stock office cables. $48,000 worth of an improvement? Well that depends on the person's perceived value. I don't read or hear about people who spend $100-200K on cars being ridiculed (not where I live that is). There really is no argument in favor of spending a lot of d
  13. GreaseMonkey-I am not a fan of MP3, by any stretch of the imagination. But, (you can for free) please try the first song from the soundtrack, "Oh Brother Where Art Thou". I think for MP3 at 320, it is fairly decent sounding. edit: Sorry, I meant from MOG
  14. "Do they actually think they know more than these professionals who have invested a lifetime of training into their respective fields? Do they think musicians say to themselves, “let’s make a sucky recording?” " 1) should read, "a lifetime of training into maximizing their profits". 2) sucky recordings by cutting corners to save money
  15. I am getting the idea from reading here, the less expensive the system, and the lower the quality of the recordings, the more hi-res is important. I guess with mid-fi, one needs to max. out those dollars not in better equipment, but more bits and resolution. I am all for high-res, but please, on $200 DACS and $500 speakers? Now, there is nothing wrong with mid-fi, but I see where hi-res tries to make it up, for some.
