  1. I've noticed all the BMG discs are "made for BMG" or "made by BMG" under license, blah blah blah and they sound like absolute crap. I stopped BMG a couple of years ago due to this.

    Amazon.com has the absolute best selection of CD and SACD/DVD-A online with really competetive prices. I buy used ones in "like new condition" many times for a fraction ($2) of the new price & haven't been disappointed yet.

  2. I've worked for TSA since the git-go and we received HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of claims for stolen LAPTOPS from the beginning. That was JUST laptops. Things have gotten better over time but there are still issues. When you have a workforce of 46,000 that are constantly turning over (albeit much better than in the beginning), you get some bad apples...

    The best advice I can give you is file a complaint through TSA's website:

  4. Babylon Sisters is an excellent example of a great recording. I also like "Morph the Cat" and "Everything Must Go" by Steely Dan which are exceptionally clean recordings with incredible dynamic "pop" & bass extension. Most of Donald Fagen's solo recordings would work as reference material. I also like "Flight of the Cosmic Hippo" & "Sinister Minister" by Bela Fleck to check out bass response, and "Time Squared" on SACD by the Yellowjackets.

    You CANNOT leave out "Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture etc. / Kunzel, Cincinnati Pops (Multichannel Hybrid SACD) by Tchaikovsky, Cincinnati Pops, Kiev Symphony Chorus, and Erich Kunzel" from your list of reference material. This works for both Redbook, SACD 2-channel, and SACD Multi-Channel systems.

  5. 25 tubes per side?

    Yep. I've heard some of Bob's other tube amps and they are ASTOUNDING and incredibly hardy/troublefree. His newer tube amps he's been selling onesy-twosey on ebay have a lifetime warranty (his life) for labor only.

    These were one-off upscales from the Silver Seven Tube amps.
