    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.

    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.
