Beck: Sea Change      (2 of 4 found this review helpful)
  August 23, 2015

Never listened to Beck before, and I didn't like his style (at least on this disk), it's way too mellow and down for my taste - and hey, I'm a very long time Pink Floyd fan! I was left with the impression that either the guy was on a bottom level of inspiration when composing the songs on Sea ... more

New site up

This is what I wanted to ask, too. Is it that difficult/costly to provide room for a forum section on the new site? I really don't know the details of owning/building a site, that's why I'm asking. If it's costly or incredibly complicated, then fine, I can understand. But if it's not, then why not providing a forum in the new format, seeing how ... more

I've only listened to multichannel part. ... more
SACD Stereo: it doesn't make sense
July 11, 2015
Why nonsense? You're assuming that the concert hall experience is the best (most natural?) that one can have in classical music - but did you ever ask a conductor about this? Maybe from his point of view his experience/location is the best. So isn't it all about the habit of where you are placed while in a concert hall? Sure, most of us ... more
SACD Stereo: it doesn't make sense
July 11, 2015
Some time ago when I was contemplating an upgrade to my existing 5.0 system, some folks advised me that, for symphonic music listening, I would be better off if I would drop the idea of surround, sell everything and buy instead two floorstanders and a stereo amp. That because the floorstanders, with good positioning, would anyway offer enough ... more
