BD, sounds like a lot of fun and I think you'll have a good time with the "shinny discs."
I love my CBIII HD for movies where it is the best I've ever heard, but when it comes to music, I am still strictly LP because of what I perceive as a more see-through transparency and air around instruments (and some people might argue, in my head LOL). What I've also done lately is transferring my LP collection, quite a few still have stunning, un-matched sound and music, to CD with a cheap Teac recorder and then to Ipod with lossless compression. That way I get to listen to my music anywhere I go. The sound quality is surprisingly still excellent, particularly if I play the Ipod with the Wadia 171.
One interesting development is that I think ebay has revolutionized the way rare and particular discs (and everything else for that matter I guess) are sold and purchased: it is in effect a powerful, near world wide search and has made easy to find discs that you want, even those rare "audiophile" ones on TAS Super Disc
list and the likes (if that's what one is into). Between ebay and stores like Acoustic Sounds, I have my candy stores and am set for life :-).Edited by cannga - 11/6/12 at 6:10am
