Ah, the cardigans. :-)

And the yoof today think Cardigans are a Swedish band...

On a slight tangent, while CAD has been making loudspeakers a lot better 
these days, it seems that the source media is getting worse. I find it 
very amusing to hear about "the quality of vinyl", and at the time if 
you wanted decent quality you needed a £2K turntable & stylus and a pair 
of LP's precision glued together, or a special extra-thick edition, and 
the whole lot set up ina  clean room. I remember lusting after open reel 
tapes running at 15fps.

But ever since CD's it seems to have been going downhill, first with 16 
bit sampling killing the top end and then MP3 compression killing the 
dynamic range. It's not like we need to save disk space any more, but 
while there are better formats out there, if they aren't being taken 
from the masters, there is no point, and seems to me record companies 
made so much money replacing LP's with CD's they are not going to do 
anything they don't have full control over, hence really supporting the 
whole vinyl revival.

Anyway, enough musings.

l8r, as the kids say
