    Re: Billie says a great HiFi System is needed!

    Nice to hear younger musicians are thinking about the quality of music.

    I would be curious to know if a Pioneer receiver and stacked speakers in a plastic ball is their idea of great HIFI.
    I'm not making fun of them just curious what their perspective is.

    Play her new song, Your Power, that was recently released in advance of her upcoming album. Let us know what you think of the sonics.

    Most young people hear music via earphones or smart speakers. I bet that Billie is referring to that. I don’t think that she is thinking of fancy cables, thousand-dollar internet switches, or what-have-you that is associated with the high-end purists.

    Her music isn’t just for young people. And I wouldn’t be so sure of your assumptions on this one.

    Re: Billie says a great HiFi System is needed!

    I have no issue with with her voice and music. Your Power is a nice song. I will listen to it in my listening room once it's out. It is hard to really tell what acoustical quality there are on a laptop.

    The only thing I didn't care for was, I don't like snakes!

    I wasn't a fan of her Cash Cab singing. Didn't like what I heard.
