Madonna s Music.
I am not fighting for Madonna or against her but as far as pop music goes she is one of the best, there is really no one for her to compete with, IMO. 
Top three most over underrated eqpmt??

best all around monitor
I have once heard the Avalon Monitor's (now discontinued) they were breath taking for a small speaker. Also worth mentioning are the B&W 800 series monitors I listened to them for several hours and I can't say fell in love with them but at lea... 
Solid state power amps.; on or off?
I never tried leaving an amp on all of the time until I read this thread and have started to leave it on now, I am a believer! After just a few days I have noticed a HUGE diference in sound in the most crutial moments, the first few minutes of lis... 
A twist on "Your absolute best..."
Here I have an unusual favorite component with a twist, my amp rack. I have described it before but it is very similiar to a salamanderdesign architype, with the exception of the shelving material T-6061 1/4" thick aluminum. It weighs about 250lbs... 
amp for sub

Murphy s Laws for Audiophiles
You reach the infamous audio nirvana and then after a few moments of listening you will loose power, and then when the power returns your system sounds like it belongs in radio shack. 
Long interconnects or speaker cables?
I am just curious but has any one tried to get the amp's close enough to the speakers to try a gold/silver bus bar? I can not due it with my set up but would be interested in the performance even if it turns out to be bad.

You buy company X's $10,000 speakers and your audiophile buddy then buy's company X's $25,000, some times you can't win. 
Dealer Bias: Do They Really Add Value?
My main complaint about the local dealer's is they are salesmen and not audiophiles. They have NO clue what sounds better or how to make it sound better but they do know what makes them more money, that is why I was told that some $1600/pair B&...
