    And Traffic too. ;)

    I play that one every once in a while. I just played it a few times in the last couple of months to test the sound quality of some speakers. I think my CD is recorded with the highs emphasized. It was brutal. But I've heard it a thousand times and mostly it sounded musical. Maybe FM subdues the highs?
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Maybe that's why I remember it sounding a whole lot nicer before.

    Replaced an Emotiva preamp with a Maverick D1+ and Realistic phono pre. The improvement was drastic.

    Testing out the ELAC Debut Reference DBR62 bookshelf speakers now. Very nice so far! Way better than the UB5's and UF5's I tried out in my last apartment (but that was on different gear and in a different listening environment/room).

    Hi Joe,

    They are in a shootout between these ^ and the Polk LSiM 703. I believe the 703's are winning but I'm giving the DBR62's a fair shot (I want the best sounding speakers to stay here). Glad you are enjoying your Adante's!
