    Pretty much anything early Beatles. Even the stereo releases sound better in mono.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    I went to a Friday yard sale today and only bought a few things.

    I did buy 2 Cds
    The double Cd of Woodstock

    And the CD of your album. :D I don't think it's a mono version though. Maybe it is...

    How cool is that?! :p


    When the guy said that Cd was a good one, I said yea...it has to be if it has "House of the Rising Sun" to start things off.

    His wife jumped up and said with excitement...That's the song we were trying to remember at that party the other night! :p

    I asked, do you want it back? She said oh no, that's alright. You enjoy it.

    I almost played it today but just had the TV on with a couple movies playing on cable while I re-organized some more out in the cottage.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Very coincidental @Tony M! Now imagine it on vinyl with a mono playback B)

    Have ? and the Mysterians where 96 Tears is on the disk in both the mono and stereo versions. Can definitely hear a difference. This happens to be a song that recorded in both mono and stereo formats.

    The stereo version sounds much better playing through 2-channels compared to the mono version, for what ever it’s worth
