Shout out to nooshinjohn for completely derailing this thread and spewing nothing but complete and utter ignorance due to subjective (and skewed, IMHO) outlook and generalization of music.

I guess all country singers are poor, ignorant southerners who sing about their dogs dying and all rock bands shoot heroin and cry about how hard life is. What otehr stereotypes can we throw out there?

And back on subject of this thread, i would like to quote Devin The Dude: "Do what the f*&$ you want to do!" Adults dont care what other people think of them, what they do, or how they go about doing it. If it makes you happy, do what you do.

I'm tired of Audiophile music I have since banned that from ever being played on my system, so palid, so pretentious.

Is audiophile music a new genre? Never heard of it - how does it sound on Magnepans?

Wont argue haha (I agree)

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Unfortunately its a stereotype that happens to be true in many cases. I used to listen to rap music back when it first came out and occasionally a rap song is released that i like, but in general the genre lost me when it went gangsta. I dont understand the lifestyle. Dont agree with the violent lyrics and feel that it simply helps to give validity to many of the stereotypes that african americans have to deal with on a daily basis.

Just my opinion though. No biggie.

Stand tall and shake the heavens...

Well, it's certainly something you used to become very familiar with when you went to high-end trade shows/conventions. Diana Krall on every other system is an example. Slowly I think that's gone a bit out the window as people find great recordings in all genres they enjoy.

Speaking of rap and speakers that are supposedly too good for it. My friend and I went to this local shop to listen to some early (this was a good 20ish years ago) Wilson Watt/Puppies. The system was nicely configured with a Well Tempered Labs turntable (some Benz cartridge), Theta digital front end, Rowland pre-amps and power amps, and a Velodyne ULD18 in a fully treated room. We thumbed through their vinyl collection and the first thing we threw on was RUN-DMC's "Christmas In Hollis". Loudly. Sounded great. They looked through the glass door, but never bugged us. Hey, it was from their collection. My friend and I were satisfied. Then we moved on to Skinny Puppy and a whole slew of other things nobody except for us had ever bothered to bring in there. It just proved that a great system brings you closer to the music. Any music.
