The Evolution of Modern Jazz
'Let me put this trolly back on it's intended track. "Latin smooth Jazz" is the title of this youtube link, it offers romantic guitar and beautiful photography.'I would agree this as an example of so-called 'Smooth Jazz' or elavator music. Sort of...

I distrust anything or any concept with the word 'Peoples" or 'World' in it. Reminds me of the commies, or the whacky so-called governments in the third world.

Taking your argument to its logical conculsion, would mean that Armstrong, Ellington, Coltrane and all the rest actually played 'world Jazz' since they played on planet earth.

One last point:In my opinion all improvised music is not JAZZ. Can music be seperated from it's roots/history/culture and remain what it is? Jazz is an American art form, and we define it. Others have been very successful in playing Jazz, but true...

Variations in how your system sounds?
'for me, alcohol consistently smears and thoroughly ruins the critical listening experience, even in small doses.'I have found the opposite to be true in my case. A couple of shots of I.W. Harper, and my speakers sound like the Wilson Maxx. 
For real bass freaks??
If you are into 'hi-fi' you should want exactly the amount of bass the composer/artist meant for there to be. No more, No less.

'I DO NOT understand...how can playing a digital track on a system demagnetize it? This will be added to the 12,416 things I don't understand, unless somebody can explain it to me.'Does the term 'MONEY' ring a bell? Actually the disc works on the ...

'Oh, yes I have hi end brick and mortar store in my town but never go there anymore. Why? They know nothing about great customer service.'Acting like audiophiles??

Thanks for the link. I have almost all his stuff. Great playing. I had a big smile of my face while listening, and this is to a youtube link on logitech speakers on a computer. Just illustrates to me, It's the music, not the gear. 
speakers/sub
'I don't feel right recommending a specific one as I have limited experience with them.'Then why make the recommendation at all. Those names throw you for a loop?? NAD & Harman Kardon :) 
Mini Maggie System hurts to listen to
Get the Polk Lsi15. They have never been accused of clogging ears.
