Just wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate this forum!
I came here a couple of months ago to research my new headphone purchase. I needed a new set to have at home since my SR-80 is at work all the time.

The forum have been a lot of fun and I have learned a lot.
I will not go into all the hardware here, but it should be mentioned that I now own a set of HD600, Ety 4P, D-25S and have an MG Head on the way...

Well, what I wanted to tell you mostly was that this music area of the forum have been a great inspiration to me.
I worked in the best record shop in Sweden between '91-'96:
www.skivhugget.se , so I do know a great deal about music and various artists, I didn't think I missed any... But since then I have not listened that much to music, at least not seriously. I have made good MP3's of most of my 700+ cd's, but even so, I have been away from constantly-buying-records-every-month for the last five years or so. Most of that money went into my 400+ DVD collection and home cinema setup...

Then I came here, and during the last month I have downloaded at least 10-15GB of new music and have found a lot of new favorites because of you guys.

Yesterday I bought a few cd's and will try to get most of the newfound favs!

Thanks!

It hasn't steered me wrong yet! Damn, except for that Britney Spears CD that everyone was raving about a few months ago. . . JK

Agreed, the Music Forum is a wonderful resource. I make an effort to hear samples of as many artists mentioned here as I can, though I've still got alot to go. Some weren't my cup of tea, some I liked, some I just couldn't stand... but some of them moved me, stirred the passion that made me a music-lover in the first place... and for finding those, I am truly grateful.

I agree as well. I have purchased many albums that were recommended here, pretty much sight unseen (or is that unheard?). Like others posters, I have yet to be dissappointed.

You have expanded my mind as well as my ears, and I am grateful. A belated thank you from me too, y'all.

Nice to see another Head-Fi:er from Gothenburg.

Skivhugget is amazing. I was there during lunchbreak today.

I'll add my thanks. I've been using my BMG membership and my 10% discount at Tower a lot these last few months. Mostly I've stocked up on stuff I already knew I liked, but I've also bought music like The Complete Bitches Brew Sessions that I was formerly oblivious to. A couple seconds ago I used my BMG music points to pick up the Zeppelin Box Set II and The Who's Quadrophenia.

I'm about to send in a request for a couple of the Stones' new hybrid remasters for the upcoming birthday, and last night I was going through the old fusion jazz thread looking for some stuff to pick up for myself.

One of these days I'll contribute some suggestions for the more obscure stuff; until then, keep it up, everyone!
