Can Someone Explain This?
Well, it now appears, after yet more experimenting tonight, that the problem may not be in the CD player after all. I am still missing information from the same disc, but now I appear to be missing it in the old player as well. But the same disc s... 
Can Someone Explain This?
Thanks, everyone. I think I am relieved mostly because this scenario seems plausible to those of you in the know. I suppose I should have mentioned that I am burning in two new amps (Bel Canto EVO 200.2), new ICs (Homegrown Audio Silver Lace), alo... 
Ear Candy: Most startling recordings.
Big Star - #1 Record/Radio CityBoth of these are excellent records in their own right. They were packaged together on one CD, which I believe is still in print and constititutes, in my opinion, an embarrassment of riches. Weird, melodic, whimsical...

Amazing Solo Piano Recordings
'Art Tatum - 20th Century Piano Genius' is the most amazing solo piano recording I have ever heard.Monk and Bill Evans are excellent recommendations. I would add Herbie Nichols and Bud Powell to the list, although most of the great recordings from... 
I need to be wowed
If you get a chance, audition the Vienna Acoustics line--the beethovens or mozarts might be in your price range. Their sound fits your description, at least to my ears.Happy listening! 
My first Jazz cd
I agree with the consensus--you can't go wrong with 'Kind of Blue' as your first draft choice. And you can't go wrong watching Ken Burns's excellent series. On top of that, the accompanying CDs are not only relatively cheap, but wonderful introduc... 
Would the Audio Aero Capitole better Theta
The Capitole may be all of this and more, but they're apparently harder to find than Jimmy Hoffa.Say, has anyone seen one for sale lately? Has anyone that doesn't already own one seen one at all, anywhere?Come on, somebody, cough one up.  
Greatest Songwriter of all time
I can't resist these parlor games. For the sake of simplicity, I've ruled out the twin tower tandems of Lennon/McCartney and Jagger/Richards.Hard to narrow it down to three, so how about these groupings? Songwriters:All-time, men's divisionBob Dyl... 
Vienna Acoustics vs Revel Studios?
Bless you, too, Sc53. FYI, I am not really related to Walter (consider my moniker as homage), but I'm a longtime fan of the Silos and all his other projects, and I think he is one of the great, underappreciated songwriters of this era. On top of t... 
Vienna Acoustics vs Revel Studios?
Oh, Clueless, bless you, sir! Indeed, I have already contacted the only Capitole dealer listed in the A'Gon search engine, only to be informed that the Capitole is on 'severe back order.' On the other hand, there would appear to be a few decent de... 
Vienna Acoustics vs Revel Studios?
Thanks for the help, everyone. Here's what I've done so far in my system makeover: kept the Beethovens, bought a First Sound Presence Deluxe pre-amp and a pair of Bel Canto EVO 200.2 amps to mono block. ICs will be Homegrown silver lace. Still mus...
