Records demos again, more seriously this time. The most recent BR and another DVD compilation. I ripped them to my HTPC for easy access and testing the results turned into a couple of hours of listening.
Wow, Alan was right. If you ever need to try to explain "sound stage" to someone, these are definitely your go-to disks. Plus there is a lot of great music on them that encompasses just enough genres that there truly is "something for everybody." They should be in everyone's demo arsenal, for sure. Top notch musicians as well.
P.S. If anyone hasn't updated Handbrake in a while like me, they added the ability to single pass, rip a BR straight from the disk in recent versions and they added support to keep the HD sound tracks intact. No more using multiple pieces of software to rip and then convert/shrink or maybe even remux in the audio. True, there are other products who's interface is a lot easier but I'm used to it now and it is free.
I'm Riffing. People usually stop me when I'm riffing. Or carry on without me. That's also an option.
