Mo, your relatives may be wise indeed(although I don't recall that any of my CDs advertise that as an additional benefit).

Since it certainly qualifies for the "stunning" description, I'll again bring to your attention the most beautiful vocal collection that I've ever heard. The Moffo/Stokowski disc wasn't available at reasonable cost for about two years, but now Arkiv has an authorized reissue. The beautiful voice of Anna Moffo gives continual listening pleasure in the Canteloube and Villa-Lobos selections and especially in the concluding Rachmaninoff Vocalise.

A complete Nutcracker makes a great Christmas gift to buy for yourself or others. I'll specifically suggest the thrilling and well-recorded performance by Gergiev , available for $10.99 at Tower .

To increase the stun factor in the new year get one of my favorite vocal recordings, the CD of selections from the finest American opera, Porgy and Bess , featuring Leontyne Price and her husband William Warfield. Stunning indeed is Price singing "Summertime" and "My Man's Gone Now", with Warfield joining her in "Bess, You Is My Woman Now".

John, I'm afraid these recordings have too much dynamic range for me \:\) .

Oh don't worry. I will be buying one. And if it doesn't give me the bang I want at a half watt, I'll be the first one to send it back \:\) .

You will NOT send it back (they change their address with every shipment)! BTW, you are very close to your first Axiom anniversary, I guess. Didn't you buy your system around this time last year?

I purchased the Epic 80-600 February 20, 2007. I will celebrate the one year anniversary by purchasing an A1400 \:\) .
