Another sign SACD is dying
On 'Hardball' last night Chris interviewed a representative of the Christian music industry who claimed that the genre accounted for 6% of total music sales. Which he stated was greater than the total for classical and jazz sales combined. I don't... 
Teres 265 or 320 vs. Sota Cosmos
Raul is your comment about the low frequency extension of Doug's speakers?? (your current subwoofer thread). Never the less his system sure looks great to me. 
Another sign SACD is dying
I gave SACD a try a few years ago and Best Buy was about the only store in my area (Knoxville, TN) that made any effort to stock the discs. The big music stores, chain and independent, acted as if they never heard of SACD. While I would almost rat...

Mcintosh mvp 841 & CD-R?
Thanks for the responses guys. The manual states that CD-R's have a different color reflective layer from manufactured discs and MAY not play. I was just hoping that someone has tried variuos brands of disks and found one that works. Anyone else?

Best Neil Young Album?
Kind of suprised by the popularity of 'Hawks & Doves'. I enjoy the side of old songs that never made it on previous ablums (except maybe the silly voices on 'Lost in Space') but the side with 'Union Man' was the beginning of his '80s slide for...

Mac 252, 353, 402?
Efner, I have a new C2200 also and got a 275. Planning to add another 275 and run as monos. For only a couple hundred more than a 2102 a pair of 275's seems like a lot more bang for the buck. 
C2200 HT pass through
