Lea Michele's debut album Louder was a lacklustre mishmash, but Places is exactly what she should be doing. This kind of "Broadway pop" is her thing. It's what I envisioned to be the optimal music style for her years ago (based on Glee). So, of course I want this album. It's as if she telepathically read my mind.

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

My first SACD player. The Marantz SA8005, which gets stellar reviews.  8)

Can't wait until it gets here on Friday! I bought it from Crutchfield, who give you 60 days to try it out. If you don't like it, you pay just $10 to send it back for a full refund.

I don't recall but planting seeds is not uncommon to me. I plant 12 acres a year of farmland.  :P
