But if you use that, make sure you have it laying on top of something soft while you're building the Crack because that stuff scratches if you just look at it wrong.

I had one of those rare head-fi moments this morning where my eyes glossed over and I became utterly lost in the music. I swear, I feel like I've squeezed the last bit of detail out of the HD...
