In reply to:

I don't listen to music to hear technology.



dharmatone,

I am with you on this one. For my enjoyment of music, the quality of performance is definitely more important than the quality of recording. This is the reason why I don't favor the RR label very much (no offense, 2x6 -- in fact, Eiji Oue/Minnesota is excellent).

I also agree with John. In my experience, a subwoofer helps a lot in 2-channel music listening (even if all you listen to is a baroque chamber orchestra), especially when the main speakers are bookshelfs. M22 vs. M60 really is your call, but do you plan on a sub at all?

sushi, after listening to the 22's i know if will buy a sub if i go that way. i can't afford the 60's and a sub,and since i haven't listend to the 60's, i don't know if i'll be happy listening to the 60's w/o one. Also, I don't know if the 60's are more placement sensitive. I listen in very non-audiophile living/dining room. 14x30, 90%glass wall on one long wall, hardwood floors, sheet rock, minimal soft stuff - couch, 2 club chairs, no soft on walls, no book cases. Hope I haven't scared you away with that description.

Sure you scared me a heck out of it! LOL

Seriously, it indeed seems like a large and very "live" room. But where and how are the speakers and the listening couch placed? What's the listening distance? What are the distances from the speakers to the front/side walls?

Hello, I dont know if this has already been suggested but I dont feel like reading through five pages of posts
If you've never been to www.digitallyimported.com or (www.di.fm) Id suggest checking it out. At the bottom of their streams page they have classical music as an option - if you're looking into classical music and dont know what you like (except for laid back vs stormy )ICheck it out, while it plays in winamp or whathaveyou, it shows whats playing - Ive discovered a load of music I would've never known that way. If you have winamp I guess you could just click this link - http://di.fm/mp3/classical128k.pls
just my 2 cents

Yeah, good suggestion, freesey! I discovered the Mostly Classical net-radio channel via the Apple iTunes software a long time ago. The iTunes, and its Wintel equivalents, will give you quite a few classical net-radio channels that are out there, and all of them of course display what is being played.

Also, I highly recommend the net-broadcast of my local classical FM station: www.wrr101.com. IMO, the programming of WRR is unusually "sophisticated" as an FM station -- you aren't just forced into the "top-100" popular classical only. I continue to encounter the pieces that I've never known before through this FM station.

And how funny! Since 2 days ago or so, WRR is doing its annual "Clasical Top 40" gathered by the listeners' votes.

Right now playing: This year's No. 5 -- Dvorak Symphony No.9 "From the New World."

Yes Masa, I've been tuning into WRR a bit and could barely contain my excitement as the Top 40 was run down. No.2, the Four Seasons and then as we all waited breathlessly, No.1, and still champ, the Beethoven 9th. I listen to the streaming audio of course, and feed the USB port on my computer into my receiver with an Xitel HiFi Link since I don't have a USB input on any receiver. Do you ever use the USB input on your 45TX to listen to any of the hundreds of classical stations worldwide?
