The best speaker you ever heard?
I've had my Nestorovic 5AS speakers for over 20 years and have never even thought about getting speakers since. Too bad Mile Nestorovic is gone. I sometimes wonder who will die first, me or the speakers? 
Dumb questions?
Thanks unsound. 
best cd player to get??
I like the Marantz SA-8004 for $1K. It sounds great, plays both sacd and cd, has digital inputs for it's very good dac, and will also input computer usb. Read the review in the ABSOLUTE SOUND. One thing, one my sacd's it didn't want to read. Thats... 
Dumb questions?

Sorry, marantz SA 8004. 
Best DAC under 2k US ?

Best Live Album Ever...
Stones unplugged is their best live album in my opinion. 
The amazing new Marigo Evolution Signature Mat
All i know is if I could afford to spend $100K on recorded music I'd rather hire the band. Really, if a person is that wealthy you could build a state of the art music venue just for you and your friends. Now that is significant improvement. 
Have digital players improved
The amazing new Marigo Evolution Signature Mat
