  • I saw BMG at the Briar Street Theater in Chicago. Great show. I bought the Audio CD after the show. I could’ve purchased the DVD-Audio disc but I wasn’t very audio savvy at the time so I passed on it.

  • I’ve wanted a pair of these for a very long time and I’m actually “local” being in St. Louis. I don’t have the cash though. Gorgeous speakers. I hope someone grabs them soon. If everyone who’s had them regrets selling them, they are likely a no brai…

  • Fabulous Karma Drew! In with 77 please.
  • Having just gone through a move recently, it is a major P I T A. Sell everything you own and buy new stuff when you get there. The Co$t of moving is in$ane.
  • We might go with the XR when they come out in October. The XR will actually cost us le$$ per month than what we pay now for her 8 and my 8 plus. Neither of us is using much of the built in memory since everything backs up to iCloud. 128 GB will be m…

  • Geez, there are so many. If it's music I'm familiar with, and can easily recognize how I think it's "supposed" to sound to me, then that's what I use. Some tracks I like... Patty Larkin: Wolf at the Door (Perishable Fruit) When (Regroovi…

  • I have the Massdrop Sennheiser HD6XX paired to my MAC. The MAC connects to a USB DAC to a Massdrop O2 headphone amp to the HD6XX. That’s the best sounding setup I have for headphones but I really like my V-Moda Crossfade 2 Bluetooth headphones with …
