Last week's "Vote" results indicate that readers clearly favor better-sounding recordings. But would a poorly recorded work prevent you from buying it, regardless of the performance or artist?

One of the hang-ups preventing DVD-Audio from moving forward is the fear that high-quality digital signals make piracy too easy. As a result, the format will likely incorporate various copy-protection schemes---possibly including watermarking. Does this matter to you?
Would DVD-Audio copy-protection schemes alter your view of the format?
Not one bit

What if you could tour all of New York City's best audio dealers by bus and get a custom presentation at each one—all in one day? Would you be interested in a hi-fi dealer caravan in NYC, sponsored by Stereophile?

The technology exists to create high-end audio programming that could finally solve the problem audiophiles have had with FM radio for years. But would you be interested enough to buy the equipment and/or pay for the service?

Dozens of new websites are popping up aimed at selling audio equipment directly to consumers.
