There is a saying in my family "two removals (moving house) equals one fire" (no joke right now out West!). Similarly we say "two dogs equals one child" in the amount of care and feeding needed. So you went from three children to effectively 3.5; not...

So I bought the Bruckner symphony collection by the Bavarian Radio (Bayerische Rundfunk) Orchestra. It was the least expensive set offered by HDTracks and I thought it would be interesting to hear how different conductors approach Bruckner. It has Ma...

I listened to this talk up to the beginning of the question-and-answer session. I am surprised that this method would really capture the essence of Romy's almighty DPOLS condition. It seems to me that Robbins is very much centered on imaging alone, a...

I think you will only be able to decide about this after listening to some operas or other video-audio through the big system.  The analog output of the video player may be good enough for the purpose, or it may sound terrible through the Milqs/Macon...

It looked like they had "only" about 300-350 people on stage in Tanglewood.  I think the original score called for about 750, at least that is how many Jascha Horenstein had on stage in the Royal Albert Hall in 1959.  He also had about 6000 people in...
