Quote from: Wind ChaserAnyone wanting to know the limits of electrostatic speakers needs to try that disc.John Actually it is a trial of the limits of your audiophile nerve - just how boring of music IS one willing to listen to for the sake of excellent sound!? That CD nearly shattered my will. No longer can I experiment with CDs based solely on sound factor. Perhaps playing that CD is what crippled the player. The Shanling couldn't take the pretense! Luckily the CD that came with the player had cool stuff on it alongside some moderately dull tripe. But you aren't getting that, I'm keeping it. Nyah! That brings the total number of HDCDs in the world up to, umm...14 I think. Oh, and the white glove isn't included - you'll just have to find your own or soak your hands in heptane before handling.The Gallo Dues might sound interesting...I'm trying to find some non-permanent-install speakers for my car that I can actually aim at my head and not the glass. (the battle against a 70db noise floor is a cruel, cruel task)

I've never heard the CD, but I use to have the vinyl disc. My point wasn't that it was great music... if I recall correctly it was more of a test record of sorts. And as such it sure made the limits of my electrostats plain as day. Music is fundamentally dynamic by nature, so no matter how revealing a speaker is, if it can't manage real dynamics, it's not a great speaker in my books.
I wouldn't accept any negative on Audiogon in your case. As it is, it's so hard to get it to stick to anyone (for the reasons tvad4 hinted), that when it actually does, it really causes some concerns. I would protect mine if I were you. Good luck.
I was thinking...if you wanted, you could e-mail me a picture of the MOor the receipt before you send it off and I could ship out the playertomorrow evening.
