The December 2007 issue is excellent!

Kudos to the editorial staff and writers for the overall excellence of the December 2007 issue!

Great articles, and an EXCELLENT manufacturer's response from Boulder!

I especially enjoyed the articles on the New Orleans music scene, MF's discussion of Intelligent Record-Cleaning Fluid, and Art Dudley's review of the Zu Audio cartridge.

Thank you Ocean56. A lot of hard work went into this issue, particularly on the part of Stephen Mejias, so it's good to hear it fell on fertile ground.

Re: The December 2007 issue is excellent!

The Audioengine2 piece was an eye-opener. Not necessarily because of the glowing review, but because of the reports of reactions of the "unsuspecting" listeners.

I've long believed that the biggest challenge to getting the masses interested in good sound --- on any level --- is to get them to hear it in the first place, and in an unthreatening environment. (RJR's "nonsocial" behavior notwithstanding )

Agreed.

I still like the idea of high end shops providing an iPod dock visible from the front window.

Let the unsuspecting iPodians enter and play their music for as long as they would like at their chosen volume level.

I bet many would leave wanting a better system.

They seemed to handle the price of the iPhone OK - even stood in line for it. This is a group that appears to be willing to pay if they believe there is greater utility to be had.

Nah, that was just a buzz. After a week or so, the iphones were no longer THE in thing, so everyone pretty much calmed down and Apple dropped the price by a third.
