    Problems with The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    Hi everyone, Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. Started to watch the extras on the second disc of the new colector's edition. The very first extra "Leone's West" has pixelation problems and then freezes about 12 - 13 minutes into the feature. I've tried to play the disc in...

    Cool Album Covers

    Hey there Y'all, Had another idea for a thread. A friend just sent me a couple of books on LP covers. The art work on many LPs is just incredible. Granted CDs have artwork too, but on a smaller scale. Sometimes that's what I miss most about LPs other than their superior sonic capabilities...

    Hi all, Was wondering who you all wish you had seen in concert but regrettably missed before they passed on. I know there are going to be many of the same artists that many of us missed like Jimi Hendrix and such and please do list those. But dont be bashful about listing some more obscure...

    Darn all you SACD fanatics!

    How Much Time Spent Watching DVDs?

    Hi everyone, Not sure if this has been discussed before, but here goes. Lately I've been wondering how much time a day, a week etc. we all spend watching our DVDs. Or better yet, how many DVDs do you watch in those same time spans. Do any of you think you spend too much time or not enough...

    Hi everyone from beautiful Austin, TX. I'll try and recommend some new bands that I've seen this week so far. The first night out was at "The Drink on 6TH" where they had their Detroit showcase. The two bands that stuck out were The Brothers Groove and The Orbitsuns. The Brothers Groove are...

    SACD inquiry

    Hi there everyone. Recently I've been contemplating jumping into SACD but I have some questions regarding my current equipment. I'm curious if an SACD player will give me noticeable improvement with my Sony STR-DA777ES receiver and Klipsch KG 4.5 speakers, or do I really need to upgrade those...
