I’m confused. Please explain.
I would guess I'm an outlier, but I actually don't enjoy most (in person) live music. Listening to other people who don't understand that when music plays, you shut your gob. The singing along by people who shouldn't sing. The phones held aloft f... 
I can't remember the name of this Dealer / Company
Gingko Audio?  
New Steely Dan Aja
I just listened to this all the way through this morning. This is probably my fifth time spinning it, and while I always go in with the thought that I will play a couple of tracks and move on to something else, the combination of sound quality (I'... 
1 song you never get sick of?
I never get tired of "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy.  same goes for "bright size life" from the album of the same name by Pat Metheny.  
Songs this good don't come around every day.
she is so good, thanks for posting this. I needed a lift this morning.  
A day in the life of an audiophile
I get unreasonably bent outta shape by the gas pump shill as well. It's always someone with a grating voice SHOUTING.

Would you move to a bigger house if you could just to have a better listening room ?
naw, I like to listen in the same space all the rest of my life resides in. I don't want to sequester myself in a little acoustically padded cell.  I might be odd in that I consider music to be a social thing, while listening room seem decidedly ... 
Want to add vinyl to my system.
be wary of anyone who tells you what you "must" spend in order to get good sound. I've seen some ridiculous claims to this effect and it's just not accurate.  Vinyl is a blast, I've never considered any of it work, and I have cleaned 2K+ albums wi... 
High end Class D amps?
I've been using a Classe CA-D200 for the last 7 years.  Since then, I have been led to believe that the technology cannot compete with A or A/B designed amplifiers, but I figured I'd just use the Classe amp as a "stop gap" until I found something ... 
EVS Music Purifiers - Amazed by how much improvement they make! Anyone else try them?
anyone with ESL speakers tried them? I use a pair of Martin Logan Impressions and I'd be interested to hear anyone's opinion of this type of pairing.  
How much should I expect with a warranty issue from a large retailer/distributor?
I'm surprised they have a 90 day policy, most retailers are 30 days at best.   I agree with most of the others who have commented so far; this is not a mark against Crutchfield, MD, or HiFi Rose IMHO.   
Bob Weir: "George Jones is my favorite musician."
One thing about Greg Brown (Mr. DeMent 😁) is pretty much all of his recordings sound great, even the lo-fi Iowa Waltz. Also, any fans of William Blake should check out Songs of Innocence and of Experience, fantastic album.   On my commute home la... 
Bob Weir: "George Jones is my favorite musician."
Not familiar, and I will check them out - Dylan, then Levon? That's quite a pedigree!  
Bob Weir: "George Jones is my favorite musician."
p.s. I love Gram's out-of-tune warble on "Love Hurts", as well as the Everly's AND Nazareth's version (love the guitar solo on that one)!
