A friend and I went at it the other day about our stereos. It soon degraded to a "My stereo is so good, I can hear...." match, with each one telling his own tall tale. My final whopper was: "My stereo rig is so good, when I listen to "Let it Be," I can hear the walls at Abbey Road studio had just been freshly painted."

I was wondering if anyone else has a rig THAT GOOD!

My rig is so good that, after hearing most any music clip, I can recite microphone serial numbers, and draw their individual calibration curves.

Oh, well that's too bad, I usually just go have coffee with the engineer, much more interesting.

My stereo is so good, when I turn it to 11, it blows women's clothes off.

My stereo system is so good that Bill Gates uses the same speakers I do in his big rig. True story, supposedly.
