Thanks much Mr RockDrummer; as a rock bass and Hammond player, very valuable feedback. That's why I'm building the Four Pi speakers to go along with Danny's subs. Most of all I value effortless dynamics and organic timbres and am willing to give up some of the audiophile artifacts (ultimate detail, extension and imaging) to get it.
"although the cds are all the same"; dig, that's why my main system is vinyl only, all tubes (just six active gain stages between my phono cartridge and speakers). No computers, no screens. I call it my time machine. Yes, I'll be compromising the philosophy with the sub amps but that's an okay use of transistors.
