What early 70's rock bands had violins?
King Crimson used the violin extensively during its Lark's Tongue in Aspic and Starless and Bible Black period 
Muse model 9 sig CD player how good?
I upgraded my 9 sig gen3 to a 10, the improvement in cd playback was audible and significant, but not jaw droppingly different - a bit more clarity in the midrange and a bit more smooth and extended on the top - not that it wasn't good before. I w... 
thanks guys. The issue is actually with the circuit board inside so its just not cosmetic on the outside. I found some pellets which slowly evaporate and create a vapor which inhibits corrosion which I am going to try. The aircon/dehumidifer route...

Avalon Monitor has anyone heard them
I've heard them set up at Goodwin's high end in Waltham Mass. I was not at all impressed.

What are your favorite monitors?
Any time phase aligned monitor with solid build quality and first order crossovers will be a good monitor and superior to most other designs. These include the green mountain audio europa (I own and love them), Vandersteen, Theil, and Dunlavy. 
ain't got no soul: bad covers of great soul songs
Ogsarg - it was "You can't hurry love". How about the Soft Cell's cover of the Supremes "Where did our love go?" 
ain't got no soul: bad covers of great soul songs
In another shameless attempt at hijacking, how about Toots and the Maytalls doing John Denver's Country Roads as the best soul (cause we all know that Reggae got soul) cover of a non soul tune. 
ain't got no soul: bad covers of great soul songs
Oops - it is uncle cracker, not Hootie. 
ain't got no soul: bad covers of great soul songs

Help me setting up a 2 channel system

Who Was Your Favorite One Hit Wonder
"I'm on Fire" - The Dwight Twilley Band. Anyone else remember these guys? 
Luxman tables
I own a luxman pd300 - belt drive fully manual. Got it in 1984 if i recall correctly, and it is still going stong. I would not recommend an automitic luxman however - i owned one briefly before the manual one and it had problems. 
GMA Europa owners....
Audio Magic is another good cable to go with the Europas.
