Let us all take a break from arguing over various subjects like: which speakers sound better, cd vs vinyl, cheap vs pricey players and just focus on music. The 5.1 boys have a section let us use this to discover new music from everyones collection 2 ch style.

well, coda just ended. i now have on santanas 'lotus'; (dont know if it was sold in us). also, switched aphex into circuit.

its copied from the vinyl i purchased in tokyo onto a (now 30? yr old) memorex mrx2 cassette but the foam pads on those old memorex cassettes come off so i 'chiseled' apart the old memorex screw-less cassette shell and re-installed recorded tape in a new maxell shell w screws and all new foam pads and friction pads.

(did this to about 200 memorex cassettes about 5 yrs ago.(lots 'o spare time, i have). that 'renews' old cassettes very well. the vast majority of the tapes actually hold their signal fairly well, as hard as it is to believe (and the aphex helps make up for the ones that dont).

and thats going back to '73! and some store-botten ones from '71-free 'fire and water', 'zachariah' sound track, and others.
