Fiddle About on Tommy - bleah. We saw the musical on Broadway last weekend and it was hard to sit through it but not as dire as the original or the movie versions.  
Best Audiophile desktop for under $2500?
@deanshias I use the Matrix Audio Element H USB 3.0 on an ASUS Z690 motherboard. I was shocked at how big a difference it made (the rest of system is Cambridge Audio DACMagic 200, Audioengine A5+ speakers, and Senheiser HD599) I use AVADirect who...

@waytoomuchstuff you made me laugh, but maybe an electric fence around the HiFi and speakers would be better than crating them?  It would make an interesting talking point with visitors ;-)
