Aurum Cantus Leisure 2 vs Quad 12L
You can try the speakers from Raw Acoustics in Surrey, B.C. I believe there is a demo pair of HT-3s floating around in Ontario. You'll have to get a hold of 'em to confirm that.

We met yesterday at my place for an evening with Charlie Haden, Gary Burton, Brad Mehldau, Kenny Garrett, Bill Evans, Earl Klugh, Beth Nielson Chapman, etc. I especially enjoyed playing my latest find, Burnt Bulb on Broadway, a nice Canadian album...

Didn't have much time to speak to him as there was quite a line-up. Apparently he comes back out after the concert is over to speak to his fans. He was very humble and soft spoken and was pleased that there were so many people who enjoyed his musi... 
Pat Metheny Group Fans....Speaking of Now on DVD
I haven't missed any of his concerts (when he has stopped in a Canadian city) other than the Secret Story concert (big mistake) since 1992. Good to know that the DVD of the "Speaking of Now" tour is out. Caught that concert in Vancouver and it was...

Virtual Dynamics + Ensemble Power Cords- good mix
I've got the whole Audition package plus an extra Audition PC (monoblocks). Got mine with the shotgun speaker cable and they sound pretty good with only about 20 hours on them.

Belated obituary to a jazz great

Space-Tech preamp review
