    I was wondering which symphonic cycles should I listen to first or which works should I prioritize first. I dreaded at the prospects of listening to Nielsen after his Fourth Symphony which I found far too vague, "silent" and mindbogglingly complex. A bunch of notes being played. Still after a...

    I was testing the Bluetooth speaker the Harmon Kardon Aura and felt that it was audiophile quality for my ALAC and Apple iTunes albums. Just wondering whether it is considered audiophile quality? Is it even possible to have audiophile quality over a Bluetooth connection?

    So I am having the usual new years resolution of getting in shape. Only this year I am determined to stick with it! I figured if I blog about it, on top of my determination I will feel more... I don't want to say obligated but more encouraged to stick with it. I am wondering if here in this...
