    I have to wonder how many people understood what they said?

    well I did, even if it wasn't entirely what I was expecting (but that's good!)

    I meant 'heard' on audiophile equipment, not scanned the squashed mid and very little else through tinny PC speakers.
    It goes to the e-book/paperbook comparison really. One is the real thing, the other.......is not.

    If you have the means you can get really involved in the ins and outs of special speakers and this and that equipment and so on ... most people don't and have to enjoy things as they can. Are they possibly missing out on some tiny nuance ... possibly (I have a sneaky suspicion that the human ear can't really tell the difference much but that's a whole other discussion) but to say that reading an e-reader is not real while a book is - that's just dismissing the words the author wrote in favour of the how you experience reading them. My opinion - if the words are written on a grain of rice or in ten foot letters on the side of a bus (should one have enough buses :D ) they will carry the same meaning, and have the same effect on you as in a book hard or softcover, with pictures or without or on an e-reader or on a computer.

    I meant the tactile experience of reading, which until very recently involved touch and smell [old books smell fantastic]. I see it very much like the vinylLP return. Paper books will come back once everyone is bored of the dinky screen toys.
    You have a right to your opinion of course, just showing you things from my perspective.

    You can't get the true sound the artist intended unless you're listening to a wax cylinder.

    I've taken to making field recordings of various artists using a homebrewed wax cylinder recorder. Playback is a bit of an issue due to ambient noises but soon I will have completed the conversion of a disused closet into an sound-proof anechoic chamber that should be ideal for listening. I still need to work with vibration dampening though.

    Sparkchaser keeps sending me links to the new Miley Cyrus song. I listened to it once, not sure what the guy sees, but hey!, what do I know?...........not terrible........somewhat tolerable.........torture.
