Do I replace my Stereo?

Writing about web page http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000ASB2FE/qid=1148991344/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_2_1/202-1180981-7832634

I've been mulling this one over for a while now.

Since I became an iPod owner I have transferred most of my CDs to iTunes and iPod. My CD collection is now largely redundant other than as a back up. They still take up lots of space though.

I currently have: A Cambridge A5 Amp in black, Panasonic Technics CD player (forget which model), two speakers, speaker stands and lots of cable.

However, the CD player is largely not used anymore. The amp and speakers sound great but take up a lot of space. The amp is used mainly with the iPod and the DVD player.

So I have looked at the Monitor Audio iDeck as a replacement. Has anyone used one of these? What's the sound quality like?


Do you like you?

Simple question really.

Went to see Martha Wainwright on Friday – really good night. She has a pretty unique voice and some great material. Evening was particularly interesting as she was joined by her mum – Kate McGarrigle.

However, the songs deal with a lot of ishoos and questions of positive/negative self–image.

So, anyway, the question i was pondering over the weekend was whether people generally like themselves or don't.

I feel fairly comfortable as me – but I get the feeling that I may be in a minority.
