when I was listening on my old waltham music centre in the early seventies all music sounded superb and before that on my parents old Pye record player it was just magic listening to early Beatles/Mowtown /Pitney ,depending which sister or parent had left a record on it.

We played this several times because it is stunning! IMO anyway.

Its a DALI album I bought at the Munich show.

um it seems that you people have no music taste because you are letting the stereo dictate to you what to listen.

I have since cleansed my palette with some MC5, Ramones and Public Enemy ;)

I have had a private opinion that I wont publish, but there must be more opinions, remember this was a challenge, and without comment, even if like the first one, it makes it a bit of a waste of time. I would prefer to come off worse than it to be left up in the air again there has been too much shite spoken for that.

So far
NVA - 2
Vivant - 0
Equal - 4

I will keep this post updated.
