If I'm listening to a recording of what a vocalist is hearing while the vocalist is singing, then yeah, that's what I want to hear. Like I said a minute ago, you're not getting it.. along with 95% here. I find this really odd, to say the least. i am happy that i dont get...

Hm. Wanting a bigger and better TV is normal when an elecronics shop shows a nice HD movie. When they only show some TV-channel then the customer only wants a bigger TV.
