OK, so my music system is now back to a pair of M40s, an H/K stereo receiver, and a turntable. Antenna isn't great and I haven't hauled all the vinyl up from the basement so basically one radio station (CBC-FM) and that's it for now.

Contrary to what you might expect, this change was neither driven by a desire for simplicity nor a sudden thought that "the old ways were really the best". No siree.

I was moving the system down from the loft to a now-empty spot along the wall in the dining room area. The CD changer has the usual big sticker saying "do not move or carry when loaded with CDs" but I have moved it before (carefully) and nothing seemed to go wrong, and I'm trying to stop bringing my "work habits" home with me, so what the heck, one more time won't hurt right ?

On previous moves I must have kept the player flat while carrying it, but this time I picked the player up under one arm... and immediately heard dozens of CDs falling out of their grooves and rattling around the back of the player housing. Oopsie...

One day I guess I'll have to take the CD changer apart and try to get my CDs back, but until then I'm back to basics... and loving it.

Ah, Lampoman, the late lamented and definitely missed M40s. Same driver kit as the wonderful M3s but in a tower. More bass. Good looking. Bigger.

I always thought Axiom should have kept the M40s and come out with the M45s as well - 1 x 6.5" driver and 1 x 5.25" driver, plus the house 1" titanium tweeter.

John I'm in the process of downloading our CDs so I moved both MegaChangers into another room and did the same thing on one of them. I had to remove the cover to get to the CD's, totally messed up my order and now I'm having to search for three fourths of the CD's that the cases were organized in the shelves with the order in which they were loaded into the changer.

I'm *not* going to miss those MegaChangers at all.
