 Another classic Skylark   Good stuff.    What do you think of Abbey Lincoln as a singer?  I never liked her voice, but maybe that's just me.  Ronstadt and Fitzgerald were great.  Wilson was her usual self.  Whatever that is.  But as a great d...

Is the idea of audiophile listening a dying concept as boomers die off?
@phillyrover: Of course you are correct.  I am just letting off steam over the current prices.  When I think of some of the inexpensive stuff I have purchased in the past, like Harman Kardon HK3490 ($299) and Marantz PM7200 ($500) and Polk Lsim70... 
Is the idea of audiophile listening a dying concept as boomers die off?
@ghasley: Exactly my point.  Where are the audio fiats and VWs?  i.e.  the Sansui and Kenwood and pioneer, Sony......  etc stuff. Cheers

Does it have to sound good for you to like it?
@dogearedaudio:   As a classical music lover, I too would take issue with the notion that it's "just the same music played over and over by different ensembles."    I meant they all play the Classical repertoire.  I did not mean to imply all... 
Does it have to sound good for you to like it?
Well, I guess it was good to get all those opinions off your chest.  If only they had the least bit connection to what I actually said. 1. It's the same music.  All written down on paper.   Everyone plays the repertoire. 2. Don't presume what I ...
