    Whats your Top 5 Tracks to test a Hifi system?

    Laughed out loud reading your list and running into 12x5 among some orchestral pieces. I love 12x5 (SACD) although I'm partial to the extended version of 2120 S Michigan Ave vs. your fav. Cheers!

    Tweaks : A sensible investment or a waste of money?

    I have watched this documentary - seems very scientific vs speculative. Bottom line - they propose the pyramids were power plants. No aliens, just an advanced civilization we have no evidence of, except for that right in front of our eyes.

    Netflix - Black Mirror

    If you like a thinking man's Sci-Fi this may be the best TV series in a long time. Theme is technology gone amok, and it really does a nice job predicting and displaying how technology could work in the future - all the while ruining people's lives, of course. I watched the episode "White...

    Do you pay attention to electrostatic discharge (ESD)?

    If your source is a cd you may have static built up on the cd. Happens to me on well played CD's. I just use a CD cleaner spray and the SQ returns.
