    The new setting on my desk.
     

     
    The music comes from my phone and goes to the speakers using bluetooth (lesnumeriques.com says the R1700BT model don't have any sound difference between the wire and bluetooth connections).

    I really enjoy your contributions to JWFan and definitely noticed! 
     
     
     
     
     
    I have a pair of Klipsch KG 3.5 (90s era speakers) in the living room that I listen on, though I find them much better for rock/pop than classical and film scores. 
     
    I'll be in the market to upgrade to something better in the next couple of years....

    It's a Musical Fidelity B200  a fantastic little class AB integrated amp from 1990.
     

     
    The NAD is a terrific player, I remember reading a Hi-Fi Choice review from circa 1991 calling it a Best Buy and citing it's "inky black" noise floor.
     
    I saw it in a 2nd hand shop a few years back for a steal and snapped it up. Sadly no remote control with this particular model but the SQ more than compensates for this.

    At some point I wondered why I had listened to New Order that much. I felt, their sound hadn't aged very well. But the came out Get Ready. For me to date the most perfect New Order album.

    Most of the Barry Bond reissues are complete, although not having to programme the blooming CD player whenever I want to listen to them, would be advantage.

    I think Disney Animation & Pixar should really take a hard look at what they're doing. Simce the pandemic none of they're films have been big hits at the box office.
     
    3 (Soul, Luca & Turning Red) films of went straight to Disney+, where the first and the last have been big hits. And Onward & Lightyear both did not do well at the box office.
     
    Disney's Raya was an incredible film I felt but was also day&date on Disney+. Encanto was kind of a flop in theatres but became a sensation on Disney+ & the internet. Hell, Encanto is still in the Top 10 streaming movies on Nielsen a year later.
    Strange World is already a flop in theatres and I think will only do well on Disney+ (where it's probably going in about a month, just like Encanto).
     
    I think both studios should look at what they're doing and start making the films again that became popular in the 90's and between 2010 & 2019. If nothing will change, then I think it will stay like this for quite a long time.

    I can't speak for general audiences, but to me the simple fact that this particular director has paraded his pet themes in remarkably open fashion through his whole filmography makes such a naked biographical spell-it-out an afterthought at best, at worst an inflated ego trip. But then, it's the same director who found 'The Post' a thoughtful comment on Donald Trump's America.

    I imagine some people on YouTube and Twitter will be ecstatic with Strange World's flop because one of its central characters is gay. They already celebrated the disaster of Lightyear earlier this year and now this will be a Christmas gift to clickbait-y YouTubers.

    I think Hollywood may love them, but the public is not exactly fond of movies from subgenres like "the power of cinema" or even "a director's own childhood memories". 
     
    Glass Onion simply looked much more "fun" and escapist, the ideal entertainment for adults this Thanksgiving.
     
    Also, the new Disney animation Strange World is a box office bomb of EPIC proportions. Apparently it'll be Treasure Planet-levels of disaster. But maybe the children who watch it today will remember it fondly in 10/15/20 years from now, just like TR and Atlantis?

    For me, every movie is now a four episode story... I now find it very hard to watch a 2-hour movie non-stop... Thanks to Netflix indeed!
     
    @Naïve Old Fart You don't need TV, because at a certain age, you don't really watch TV anymore, it watches you instead!

    Of course I could have picked a lot of music from the past years, but I wanted something "fresh" (not always as a daisy!) for each of my favourite composers.
     
    The expansions of Close Encounters and E.T. would have been on a previous version of my list for sure! Buckbeak's Flight from HP... there are some audiophiles classics, we know them!
