How can you not have multichannel system

I just finished listening to Allman Bros 'Live at the Fillmore East" on SACD, and cannot believe the 2-channel 'Luddites' who have shunned multichannel sound. They probably shun fuel injected engines as well. Oh well, their loss, but Kal has it right.
Dgarretson is both an audiophile, and a knowledgable student of literay tastes. I take my hat off!!
'Can any pre-amp be better than the final H-Cat?' Hmmm, the spirit of that message tone sounds alot like the opening thread that you resent. Tbg, you are an incredible hypocrite. And you are a professor!!?? Of what -- intolerance??!!
Mig007, if you think my posting is anything like your initial post, I think there is no value in any discussion with you.
Yeah, both comments mirror each other in tone and intent. We both had experiences where we felt nothing else could compare to our listening experiences due to, in your case a preamp, and in mine, the multichannel music. Our comments were tinged with exuberance bordering on what some may perceive as arrogance. The only difference is I can admit to it, but you are in denial.
