General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.

Of course....the whole issue of quality opens up

an entirely new subject and certainly one foreign to non audiophile type people. I'm not saying that's bad but most people simply listen to the music that is being played, tap their feet and hum along. The casual listener either likes the music or they don't. The myriad of qualities that comprise critical listening are simply not a factor to the general public.

When I used to search for lps during the Golden era of record collecting garage sale folks immediately assumed that I was looking for Beatle albums or some other once popular artists.
For some reason I felt compelled to give a mini lecture on why I was looking more for such labels RCA Shaded Dogs labels, Columbia 6 eyes or Mercury Living Presence editions and the special sound qualities found in those records. I would stop when I saw their eyes start to glaze over.
