    What are you currently listening to (Classical)?

    Late afternoon here. A bit cold out. This music soothes my soul. There is just "something" about Mr. Corelli. Perhaps being played through Italian speakers enhances the experience. :)

    Perfect for me on this rainy New Year's Eve. Here's to a brighter 2020 for all.

    I love #14 but #15 is the one that makes me see stars. :) Actually, they all do in their own ways. :)

    What's Best? The Absolute Sound or today's High End Systems?

    I like music. It's far more rewarding than counting the number of angels on a pinhead.

    What SONG are you listening to right now?

    Oban, well awwwright! Let me clarify, I was just a lower middle-class white kid from the suburbs with easy access to NYC, especially the Village. "On the Road" was my bible. But without a map. I stumbled into various scenes out of keen curiosity, dumb luck, minor misfortune, and looking...

    What SONG are you listening to right now?

    Single malt and no cigars and I am IN! :) It was a wonderful time for me. I remember when Ornette Coleman hit the NYC scene with his plastic sax. There were a lot of skeptics. When Lenny Bernstein heard the quartet he proclaimed Ornette a genius. That seemed to shut down the naysayers...

    Morello is a saint IMO, and that, in no way diminishes the brilliance of the other artists on this recording. I mean, it IS the Dave Brubeck Quartet after all! I, too, had no idea this existed but thanks to Qobuz, I do now. I grew up listening to Symphony Sid on a transistor radio tucked...

    I would also like to say that I love my venerable, upgraded Linn LP12, original Ittok with HANA LO cart, and have finally reached the point where I can enjoy both analog and digital playback, understanding there are differences. The fragility of vinyl still haunts me, but I think I've come to...

    Gregadd, I am neither facetious nor sarcastic. Clearly Roberto is a passionate and earnest fellow and his feelings resonate with me. A humble suggestion: Please check your spell-check. It's all about the music, ultimately, is it not? I've come to appreciate digital playback after decades...

    This collection blows my mind. JAZZ!!!!!!!!!!!! Wonderful re- interpretations of some familiar and not-so-familiar material.

    Roberto, I cannot claim to have a completely accurate recollection of my LP's but for the most part, the music is in my head. Having said that, it is not a completely satisfactory situation because all too often, I am left with many "ear worms" which can go round and round, heard only by me...

    I find the best way to ensure optimum LP quality is to clean and play the record but once, committing the performance to memory, where it remains unscathed. There, I can hit mental replay countless times. Once played, I donate my vinyl to charity. Yes, I have gone through many thousands of...

    Some days Marin Marais is my drug of choice. I find this an especially appealing selection.
