    You're all okay with high gain headamps?

    Radio 'Soundstage'. Don't you love it?

    I'm away from home for months at a time and that means that I don't bring more than 100 CDs with me and I resort to my radio, listening to classical and Jazz. The reception can be irritating but once I find a sweetspot, it's very enjoyable. Besides the type of music, what is truely amazing is...
