Death of the Stereo?

As a single "thing" to buy, you are right that the "stereo" is dead. In my home, I have the video system setup in living room. We have streaming through the home, but single speakers. Its the new 'radio' in our home. Then I have a 2-channel system with streamer, DAC and integrated amp. There is a second input from the PC. This is a near field setup... $2,500 of components. The new stereo and the best sound in the house. Thanks for the show. Great exchanged between the two of you.

I'm Done

I've actually been a subscriber to this show since the very beginning. Lately though I think they've gotten away from the show's original intent; to be a show about "how people listen to music today." As of late for the most part, its become a show about Doug and Kirk's love of progressive rock. In my opinion, they've turned into one-trick ponies that never do any shows on say jazz, for example.

The final straw for me came when Kirk mocked Rachmaninoff as a composer. This from a guy who is obsessed with the Grateful Dead.

Great podcast

Thank you guys for this well thought out and informed podcast. You actually reconverted me to pay more attention to music, think about the experience of listening to it again, and reconnect with, egads, ALBUMS!!!😉 Looking forward to more episodes.
