Some versions of Vocalise by Rachmaninoff comes close to it. Ghost in this House sung by Alison Krauss can too. I know there are a few others that have this effect on me, but its been a while since I've heard them.
Thanks for the recommendations.

Well I just snagged a GC Doubledash pack off ebay, so GC it is. Thanks again for all the input reguardless of the system you recommended. I'm sure I will be looking at the others in a few years. I'm a flight simulator, WWII combat kind of guy: is there anything I should be watching for?
So, aside from a second controler for any system, and a memory chip for the GC (how big?), any other "must have" accessories? I know the GC has a steering wheel that works with Mario Cart. Am I correct there is similar for the Xbox?

Well then the Gamecube does sound more like it for now. At 8 years old, I figure it will be 4 years worth of play and then we may be looking a...
EDIT NOTE: Well I just snagged a GC Doubledash pack off ebay, so GC it is. So the lovely Mrs. Redneck wants me to look into getting an XBox as my boys (7 and 8) have some money saved up, are doing fairly well with school and are always talking about their friend's systems. And they have one friend in particular that we would prefer it he came to our house (he is a nice enough kid, but we just don't like our kids in his home). Now I'm familiar enough with the...

Yes, IF... IF the laser is actually reading...
In the HTPC relm: How good is lossless files through the digital out into an outboard DAC, such as an ART DI/O? I've played with hooking PCs up to stereo's, but have yet to make a perminant addition to my system because I haven't heard a soundcard as good as my simple Yamaha CDC 565 or a Toshiba 3960 (un-moded). I'd like to put one in to replace the changer, but don't want to unless I am atleast maintaining the limitied quality that I already have. Anybody playing...
