What about House of the Rising Sun by the Animals... And just right now I've got a few Italian songs in my mind... It's just a matter of bigotry and hypocricy...

Closed back headphones have sealed...
fidelity or what else? We are looking for a sound that should be as close as possible to the original one, and LOYAL to it, or what else? Since I've been reading hi-fi and hi-end related forums, I've noticed, with much surprise, that "fidelity" is not the only thing audiophiles look for. Contrariwise, many of them consciously oppose it. Some look for a valve that make the sound somewhat "hotter", "fuzzy", "liquid"; some argue that this or that amp is "too cold", "to...
Differences, in general? From a technical point of view? And from an acoustic one? A seller of mine told me that back-open are somewhat "safer" and that you can listen to them for hours, and that with back-closed ones you'd better not. Is that true? Why?

I import my amp from Italy, I just pay the seller price (inclusive of local VAT), I didn't pay anything extra or deduct any VAT paid. This is the...

I don't need to pay anything else. So if I buy something form Italy or from Germany, I don't need to pay any extra VAT etc on top of the price (with local VAT). However if I get something from USA, I will have to pay around 30% of the value of goods (if > £18) and the delivery...
