It's from Quebeck, right? That's where Celine Dion id from. I like her music style, a lot.

I'm not listening to anyting right now - ear infection.


ROFLMAO Big Grin Yes O2, Malajube is also from Quebec, but that's where the similarities with Celine end. Malajube are young, energetic, and have something to say.

You've mentioned SACD a few times...What is that?


Super Audio CD. Most regular CD players can't play them, but I've had a DVD-Audio system in my car for a couple of years (DVD-A is even better) and so I bought a system for my home as well. Hearing great music in digital surround (5.1, 6.1, and now even some DVDs in 7.1) is a treat, though some stereo purists will deny it.

I really like surround sound, but it's still a pretty small market, so the selection isn't great. I've had trouble finding either SACD or DVD-A releases in stores, so I ordered a whole bunch from Amazon last Sept. and they're slowly (and I mean SLOWLY!) arriving, with weekly e-mails from Amazon saying everything is back-ordered. But at least they come through eventually.

Most of the surround sound discs that I bought are music that I already have, but enjoy it all anew in this format. Classical music, especially, is impressive; like sitting in the orchestra.



Steve, I still refuse to throw out my vinyl, even though my wife thinks I'm nuts. I haven't put on an album in months, just because of the minor hassle in turning them over. I also taped most of my records on cassette the first time I played them, so that I could listen to them in the car, and then ended up playing the cassettes in the house too, so a lot of albums are in great shape.

Remind me to play you the entire Vanilla Fudge album series next time you're in town. Smile

Now, when you say "vinyl" you mean the same kind of vinyl that Steve8 and I were discussing, right? The black plastic discs with a hole in the middle that music was recorded on?

I don't want to find out that this is opening a door to some exotic fashion taste that you feel compelled to discuss with me. I mentioned leopardskin here once, and a guy named Enoselsa went right off the deep end. I can't be responsible for that happening again.

I think you're right. I might have heard that before. I should look into finding out what equipment is needed to wire a turntable to the computer, and I guess there's software that will convert the signal to digital.

It's an excellent suggestion for me, CaliCab. Thanks!

Holy guacamole! Eek Big Grin My husband is seriously into hi-fi. DVD A, SACD, CD, etc. - all happening here. But, his first love is vinyl (on his Linn turntable). Yes, sadly, even when I've gone and done scrubbed up, thrown on the leopardskin, war paint, and vinyl (not necessarily all at once), nothing quite does it for him like a high quality 12-inch single...

Anyway, if you haven't gone running off, screaming like a little girl at this point Wink, I go by "luv vino" on WD.

Cheers! Big Grin

P.S. I am truly curious about your vinyl collection. This isn't merely an overt attempt to contact you because (clearly) I'm smitten with your persona. Is it "smitten with" or "smitten by"? Darn, I missed that day in school too. Gack!
