Ribbon speakers
You don't see a lot of speakers with ribbons these days. One company that does feature them is Selah Audio.

Just bought a new Jeep so that puts the car back ahead, the older sedan is about 50% of the stereo total. 
Great rock songs
"November Rain" - Guns N Roses"When the Crowds are Gone" - Savatage 
TDAC or Havana?

VTI audio rack, any good?

Name your lame duck artist........
Taylor Swift can't sing, writing and performing is okay and her fans love her. Now winning a Grammy for vocal performance what a joke. Grammys have sold out now too. 
Buy LED, LCD or Plasma

Question for Canadian members
