    DX1000 vs. W5000

    sounds like the dx1000 is probably more my cup of tea, im just worried that its bass will OVERWHELM the rest of the spectrum. i like bass but not enough to sacrifice the highs or mids for it

    320kbps MP3 sounds ok, CD sounds harsh

    when you encode to mp3, the encoder essentially strips out everything around 20k (which is called the 'air' region, the extreme treble region). Many modern masterings tend to go overkill adding 'air' frequencies and can make a recording sound less natural and glassy.

    Is Audiophile level sound an acquired taste?

    for some reason with a higher end system, for me sometimes the 'sound' overtakes the music, meaning i can listen to anything and marvel at the quality of sound regardless of the material. like how people will watch, say, "national geographic" on an hdtv simply because they like the image quality...

    laptoppers: options to eliminate glare?

    I agree. Matte is the way to go. I had an old toshiba laptop with a matte screen but when it was time to upgrade i decided to try a glossy and lemme say, its not worth the extra vibrance and contrast if the glare ruins your eyes!

    Review: The Who - Live at Leeds Deluxe vs. 1995 Remaster vs. MFSL audiophile master

    After owning the Live at Leeds 1995 MCA remaster (14 tracks) and the NFSL remaster of LAL for a while, I figured I would purchase the "Deluxe" edition from Amazon -- it includes the previously unreleased live Tommy material. I popped it in, and to my surprise the Deluxe sounded considerably...
