That's what I call audiophile music -- that's why they play that kind of music -- that sparse, jazz trio shit -- at all the audiophile conventions. It makes any system sound good.

Yeah, it takes some pretty serious fail for it not to sound good.

I'm just wondering how they made my cheap laptop speakers sound all audiophile with that soundtrack :o

im starting to believe the whole garbage in garbage out idea. on the run of the mill shitty mp3 encodes, the laptop speakers sound exactly like one would assume - shitty. however, on the tracks i got from hdtracks and some other hi rez stuff and well recorded albums (sara k, patricia barber, dave koz) they actually dont sound half bad. better than ibuds at least. i cant stand them with good quality music (higher bitrate etc etc)

The structural engineer in me cringes at how those are mounted. I'd never let anyone walk under those if it was my house. Yikes.

Ha, trust me they're not going anywhere, these things have got loads more fixings than they need to stay put. I have happy memories of swinging repeatedly from them before mounting the drivers.

Trust me, just because something supports a load temporarily does not mean that it is permanently capable of doing the same thing.

Ah well, the barn's been there for 200 years & the subs have been there through a year of heavy use, I'll take my chances ;). Having said that, I'm kinda tempted to move my bikes...
