When is digital going to get the soul of music?

Who's Your Favorite Bass Players; Why?
Ray Brown 
Blu Ray over/under $

Spendor vs. Von Schweikert?
Grakesh, It's very hard to argue with different tastes. "What is the point in accurate musical re-creation when the listener can not be emotionally involved in the music he is listenng to. Again, this is very personal opinion and can change from i... 
Vandersteen 3A Sig vs. Von Schweikert VR4 Jr.
Dseid, Thanks for clearing that up. I have a great dealer in the bay area - he carries what he likes not stuff he doesn't beleive in. He doesn't sell brands that he wouldn't recommend when there is something better for the pric... 
Dynavector Karat 17D2 vs Sumiko Blackbird
The Dyna is easy to set up. I had to get a different counter weight, but that's no problem. VPI carries it. They are both good cartridges, so either way you'll be happy, but after my Dyna wears out, I'll buy another one. There's nothing at the pri...

What headphone amp to buy-Sennheiser HD 600?
If you have those high demands get the AKG K1000. I own Grado RS-1 and Senn hd600 (heard the 650) - I heard the K1000 and end of story it was in another league altogether while creating a soundstage outside of the head (by a little bit). If you ca... 
Room Tunes Still in Biz?
I would work with Eighth Nerve, no shady stuff going on with them. I hear all sorts of things about Michael Green. 
Spendor vs. Von Schweikert?
Grakesh, You're right they sound bad. We're all nuts including the reviewers. I guess the jig is up ;) 
Tube Playback for Apple iPod...
An ipod will change my life and is better than multi thousand dollar CD players? um, don't think so, but glad it made your life more enjoyeable anyway. 
Blu Ray over/under $
