Amateur inherited an audio system...
I will go with the others in saying KEEP IT!Giving it a whirl before even deciding to sell it is a very sound advise by Unsound.The Rogers LS3/5a are very much sought after speakers as there is a cult following for them. There is a group of 1500 f...

When is digital going to get the soul of music?
I once read a post on another thread where the listener (an audiophile) was moved to tears listening to his ordinary radio in the kitchen when one of his favourite classical piece was being played.I wonder if it was the soul in the radio or it was...
