An argument could be made that most speakers are designed to sound best with their grilles intact, while others might reason that anything in front of a tweeter has got to be bad. Reader Gerald Neily wants to know if you prefer to listen with your speaker grilles on or off.
Do you listen with your speaker grilles on or off? Why?

The classic audiophile "pose" is sitting still in a chair, probably with eyes shut, and perhaps a toe tapping. But some music demands that you leave your seat and dance. Do you often get up and move when your audio system is playing?

Although standalone music systems will always be part of the audio hobby, it appears that computers are becoming increasingly important. Improvements in data transmission and storage are reported almost daily, and several services now offer downloads of music. When will a computer become part of your music system?
Do you plan to integrate a computer into your music system?
No! Never!
