Corona playlist- time to smile
"Danger Zone" sung by Johnny Adams. (A Percy Mayfield song). 
your favorite 3 Duke Ellington albums?
I'm not a big jazz fan, but enjoy the earlier Ellington stuff. Specifically these 2 cd's:Swing Legends - 24 Classic Hits, Robert Parker series. 1920's to 1940.Sophisticated Lady, Victor Jazz, 1940-46.Both have excellent sound for the time period. 
Is OPPO worth the inflated price?
Interesting comparison between the OPPO 205 and PS Audio.I was lucky to get one of the 205's from the last production run. Sounded excellent. Sent it to Ric Shultz for mods and it sounded even better, more open, spacious, lower noise floor.Last mo... 
Acoustic Zen MC2 110 ohm?
Thanks, that's good to know. I see what you mean about the jack on the Node2 being recessed and having limited room around it. I already have them hooked together with a different cable with no problem. Must have a smaller end. Will look into the ... 
Internet Radio as digital source
I had posted a similar question. I tried a bit of radio streaming thru my laptop, but was disappointed with the sound. (And didn't want my laptop tied up with streaming). I found a few internet tuners on Amazon, but the sound quality was kind of a... 
Best rock song of all times
Fire and Water by Free has it all for me. Pounding drums, great vocal and guitar.But the earlier mention of Little Wing had me thinking. My favorite Hendrix song, it almost transcends rock music. In its own category. 
Quality Internet Radio Tuner
I found a refurbished Node 2 at a good price and ordered that. Should sound better than the internet radios I was looking at. An as mentioned, it gives me the option of trying streaming services down the road. I'm very interested in getting it int... 
Quality Internet Radio Tuner
Thanks for the replies. Good to know that internet radio can sound excellent, but not from the Sangean. 
Hendrix blues
To comment on some of the previous posts. The Hendrix BBC recordings are currently available on CD and Vinyl. And Hendrix In The West. I remember having the record in the 1970's. Wore it out back then. I wanted to replace with CD, and was excited ... 
Hendrix reissues sound pretty good
I've been waiting a while now (6 months or more?) for the AYE SACD to be released. Keeps getting delayed. I have the Axis SACD and it sounds sensational. Best I've heard it. So my expectations are high. 
I'm having a really hard time with: "Power cable reduced my soundstage"...
Over the years I've upgraded interconnects, speaker cables and power cords. (Mostly Cardas at this point). To my ears, the power cords have been the hardest to hear differences. Lower noise floor, a bit smoother highs.  
Cambridge 851C vs Oppo 205
Interesting post. I also got a 205 from the last run. Sent it to Ric at EVS for his mods. Came back sounding more open and quiet. The 205 sound did take a long play time to smooth out. Seemed like 100's of hours.Kind of at a dead end now, as I wan... 
Stop Making Sense Revisited
Sounds great on the BluRay disc. And the visual is very entertaining. Amazing what they could do with such a simple set. And their energy level is so high!

How did a bands' name originate?
The group Chicago was actually named after the transit authority in Chicago. After releasing their first album, they were threatened with a lawsuit by the Chicago Transit Authority, so they shortened their name to Chicago.
