1) Art Dudley in his disc player review. Recalling all the hype that was generated in the past regarding certain tweaks and giving a brief review of the current state of those past "glaring diiference" makers. This hobby tends toward miracle cures that get everyone all aflutter and then fade. It's important that we keep those ideas alive to see if they have "legs" and to remind us of which ideas have evolved from fad to bad. Great perspective reminder!
2) To Michael Fremmer for taking the time to do some real world blind testing by having a buddy switch devices in his playback chain while he described what he heard. Very hands on and appreciated - it's they way most of us do it, so I could relate!
I'm a slow reader, just now getting through the October edition!
