My new main man Parker Milsap. "Other Arrangements" was my album of the year last year, and "The Very Last Day" from 2016 is great, as well. Played them as a twofer last night after popping a Clarice...

Hifi versus music?

One of the great questions in the hobby, sir! In the backs of our brains, I believe all audiophiles are listening for flaws (or breaking) at all times, we can't help it. There are times we can relax...
