    I listened to my RTA12b's while working outside.

    I then listened to them and the Pinnacles 50/50 later on inside for about 45 minutes.

    Had a BLAST! B)

    Changed the lights I put in a couple of weeks ago. They were LED and gave off a slight hum. Couldn’t have that. Replaced them with old school fixtures. All good now.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    That from the guy who goes to Celine Dion concerts. Hahahah

    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?

    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.
