Mikek,

I applaud your taste in music, impeccable. Lark and Nimrod are two of my absolute favourites.

You're an argumentatitve bugger, but you certainly know good music...........

Cheers,

Hugh

thank you kindly....:) .....on that note i would heartily recommend the london chamber orchestra's interpretation of Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings .....First time i heard that, i spontaneously bust into tears!!:nod:

P.S: Samuel Barber was (RIP), an American.......who says Americans lack creativity..??:)

Hi Joe, :)

Hardware....i am convinced Meridian's approach is the least flawed to date...ergo...actively driven transducers, with DSP crosovers at line level.....

Reminds me of people (guys...) owning not-so-cheap sports cars in their late twenties, early thirties... being forced to give them up because of marriage and children, either because they need the money, or their cars are too unpractical for a small family...

Seems to be the same with HiFi gear...
a) expensive
b) Kids like pushing their fingers into tweeters :eek: , Helmholtz resonators :rolleyes: , and like touching things not made to be touched, like DIY gear with mains voltage not properly secured... :cannotbe:

Actually, that are some more reasons for me not to plan a family...

But who knows, I'm just 27, and my opinions have changed a lot over the last years... :nod:


One thing I know for sure: I will never spend as much money of hifi gear that I could buy a sports car or a superbike with it...

Sound reproductions has its limits...


Bye,

Arndt

my plasma TV is covered by filthy finger prints and drools. My kids and their kiddie friends would touch their favorite characters on screen, all the time. No matter how much efforts I put into persuading them and educating them, they just wouldn't listen, :)
