  3. Re: The true story of how Billy Joel's, Piano Man, finally caught fire

    Well, my comment should make you happy. It gives you an opportunity to push Borresen a little more, doesnít it? Or have you lost your brand ambassador agreement in the meantime, Ralph?

  11. Re: Major impact expected: AudioNet Heisenbergs approaching

    Good way to put it [emoji3].

    I think I got so enamored with the idea of these new amps, that I did not think it through. Typical gear-junkie behavior.

    I think what people refer to as aural memory, is the level of accuracy over time.

    The questions is, how well and how accurately can you differentiate between small details. E.g. when switching a...
