Music is such a big part of musician's lives, but high-quality audio almost never is. Why do you think there are so few classical, jazz, or rock musicians who are audiophiles?

Satellite radio has been plugging away for several years now, and has garnered both rave reviews and criticisms. Have you tried a subscription to one of the services? If so, what do you think about it?

Until 2006, <I>Stereophile</I> covered audio Shows in the print magazine, usually between three and five months after the event. In 2006, its Show coverage was published almost entirely on this website, live during the Shows. (See, for example, our <A HREF="http://blog.stereophile.com/rmaf2006/">report from this weekend's Rocky Mountain Audio Fest.</A>) Do you appreciate this change in policy and if you had to choose, which do you prefer: delayed coverage in the print magazine or live website coverage?

Oh-oh, there's a picture of a Sonos music system on the cover of the latest <I>Stereophile</I>. Are we losing it by covering the music-server market, or are we on the trail of the next audio revolution?

Some manufacturers just sell you a product through their retailers and are done with it. Others reach out and make you feel part of an extended family. Is there an audio company that offers exceptional customer support? Who are they and what do they do?

For a lot of folks, the major record labels have lost their musical way. But independent, or "indie", labels are considered a bright spot by many. Do you have a favorite "indie" music label? What is it, and why do you like it?
