  • a bit out of the mainstream or even jazz but I like this:: Great voice and sound quality.
  • All good mentions. Any Holly Cole fans?

  • We have an older Miata, and while small and not the absolute best at anything, is maybe the most fun car I have ever driven, even compared to much more expensive and faster cars.
  • Wentworth! Super addictive and very tense. Love it!
  • @DarqueKnight I can see you put a lot of thought into your replies! Yes a lot of what you say is true, but you are forgetting one thing I asked you. Recordings are not made (most) in the manner Polk or you describe. Most of what you say wo…

  • Okay, so no one can discuss intelligently. No surprise on this forum.
  • Polk SDA white paper: "For example, suppose we go to a concert and put a microphone at each of our ears to record exactly what we are hearing.." That is the assumption. Recordings are not made in that manner though. Hardly ever. Binaural reco…
