    Best Western Movies

    I agree with aforementioned High Noon and The Treasure of Sierra Madre. In addition, how about Little Big Man and The Magnificent Seven? In case I might be accused of only picking classics, how about 3:10 to Yuma for my fifth?

    good headphones for running/jogging below $50?

    Koss KSC35 available from Koss here for $45. I prefer them to the newer and derivative KSC75 in sound, although I do like the 75's ear clips better. If you want you can swap the clips between the two models. The original PX100 did not sound as good to me. Plus, my pair was not sturdy...

    After some thought, I chose a single album as a response to the OP. It wasn't easy. And the winner is ... It's as though this album is tuned to my resonance frequency.

    Squeezebox Duet Deal

    Killer Deal. AlexinExile, thank you for the heads up. I just ordered one. I've already got two "classic" squeezeboxes but I just could not pass up the chance to have the display in my hand instead of across the room. The other big advantage of upgrading is the ability to control all the...

    Favorite Soundtracks

    Not exactly a soundtrack since a number of the pieces were not used in the movie but all were composed at the invitation of the director, Tim Robbins. Absolutely stunning CD that I still enjoy after more than ten years.

    What DAP for JH-13 Pro/Pico Slim?

    Has it occurred to the participants in the preceding lossless/256 difference war that both sides are correct? Some may hear differences due to compression that others do not due to hearing, equipment and perceptual learning. Folks who do hear these differences may differ in how significant...

    Cambridge Audio 840C as DAC…

    FWIW, I use the 840C's DAC in oversampling mode (test 4 in the OP) to listen to streaming radio. It seems particularly effective in making lower bit rate streams tolerable.
