    Is there any point in owning CDs or vinyl

    I still buy CDs, though sometimes I wonder if I should stop. Those I buy get spun once, to rip them, and consigned to a shelf/storage ever more. Over the years, some have come back out to be re-ripped into a different format. Hopefully, FLAC will be the last format I need to bother with, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I've owned the double CD for many years. I can only agree that the Bitter Suite live album CD is excellent.

    Guess the album cover

    I suspect that I'm not going to know what it is when I'm told the band name and album title.

    What is the biggest upgrade to a HiFi system?

    For me it's speakers. It's always amazed me how good rather modest amps and sources can sound with what many would consider ridiculously expensive (and seemingly financially mismatched) speakers. By comparison, you can tweak around the edges with amps, sources, cables etc, but a change of speakers is more obvious.

    BBC Biggest Weekend Concerts On Radio TV & iplayer

    I pretty much ignored Beck for long enough, but I've made up for it since. Morning Phase and Colours are my favourites, but Sea Change isn't far behind.
