Thank you Allen.
It’s hard to not buy into the hype when it’s touted to the degree that it is. I went ahead and ordered two of the 455’s. I’m certain that there will be pro’s and con’s. And the con’s will irritate the crap out of me from time to time, but to think that I’ll have 800 CD’s loaded and ready to fire is very attractive to me. I too have some rather eclectic tastes for music. From raw Celtic, to blues to head banging metal.
