By the way, I did listen to this CD on speakers instead of headphones. I took over the CD to a friends house who has some Sound Dynamics RTS 7 tower speakers. I listened to these speakers a few months ago and wasn't impressed. This time though I thought the sound had improved somewhat and they were not as "bright" sounding as I remember. I told my friend he could probably do some tweaking to improve their sound but he basically just rolled his eyes at me. He did not have them on spikes and he had them connected with lamp cord. This time they sounded a little more restrained. They also didn't have great detail. I told him about some of the cables that I use and he thought I'm just crazy spending money on such things. Oh well, maybe some day he'll come around.
