How do you stop house guest from damaging your speakers?
I was raised that you don’t touch other people’s belongings and to respect other people’s stuff. I guess that must have been lost through the years.If you have questions, ask. If you want to touch, ask. How friggin hard is that?  
Who Would You Spend A Day With - Pick Two
Let’s change that up a bit. Two people from the audio industry. I would choose Nelson Pass & Peter Qvortrup. From the forum, Atmasphere & Millercarbon. The latter only to get inside his head. My favorite alternative would be Oregonpapa  
Whittling down my choices to a final few pair...

A perfect song? What are your choices?
Burt Bacharach and Barbara Streisand, hard to beat that combination!

Buying Pet Peeve - Pictures
This is completely unrelated to audio but shows how poorly some people take photos. Ever been house hunting and when they show the bedrooms they take photos  of the bed? I don’t care about the bed, I want to see the room. Some people just don’t ge...

What CDs to buy
My go to process has always been to search for “best version of X CD” then select Steve Hoffman forums and start researching. It’s always worked well for me.  
Thanks. Yes, I spoke to Mike there and he said he wants to buy an amp and is having a hard tome choosing between AN and Synthesis. That tells me how good the Synthesis must be!   
@jond May I ask why you're not using any AN amps?  
Thanks @jond I appreciate your input. I'm not sure I can go wrong but but it would be nice if anyone was familiar with these specific amps.
