    Written back in the '50s, much of the material contained in this seminal book by audio legend Edgar Villchur still rings true. One of the things that Villchur bemoaned back then was that audiophiles just didn't go and listen to enough live music. HP bemoaned the same fact in TAS, even at one point asking writers to turn in the tickets from concerts they attended (now sure that really ever took off though). Do you think this has changed over the years? Are audiophiles finally going to hear more live music and concerts.

    I know that I'm blessed living in New York where I can find a concert somewhere, any day of the week. Hell, on the way to the concert, there's often someone (or a group) playing bongos, a guitar, pan pipes or some other instrument. Nice ambience added too!
