    • Active studio monitors
      Anyone else using active studio monitors at home to listen to jazz? While these were developed for studio work, I find them tremendously useful at home as well. They have all the advantages of active speakers (dedicated amp for each driver, simple active crossovers) and are relatively affordable compared to common hifi brand speakers. Also, because the power amps are integrated, active studio monitors allow for very compact systems (add a source with volume control and you are done). You already get very good results from some of the cheap monitors like JBL LSR305. You can get stunning results from some of the higher end studio monitor brands like Adam Audio, ATC, Genelec, Neumann, Quested and ME Geithain.  I sold a well-regarded amp/speaker combination (Accuphase/Dynaudio) when I heard my Neumann KH120 monitors for the first time. The Neumann speakers are much cheaper and sound better to my ears. I then added a pair of Quested V2108 monitors when I moved to a larger room and could not be happier with them.  Just some food for thought if you are considering new speakers.      
    • Are there any box bargains currently available?
      Saw a used Nat King Cole Mosaic CD box set. About $275  (if you buy it at the store, which includes the sales tax)  Not sure how they handle the price on mail orders outside the state.  (sticker is about $251).  Give them a call.  Pretty sure they do mail orders.  I didn't inspect the CDs or box.  Talk to them.  I would assume it's in decent shape.
