For dress (OTC) socks, I can't tell any difference between a pair of Marcolianis or Falkes that were $20+ and BR ones that were $2.99 last January. They hold up well in the wash, too. And unlike Pantherella's too-short OTCs, the cheap BR's don't slip down my calf during the day. So I will probably be buying fewer...

The part and build quality will affect the long-term function of a cable in a given environment. Like I mentioned in my earlier post.... In a car or a boat it is advantageous to have sheathing and connectors that will withstand the constant vibrations of the environment. Not in the context of domestic audio, if someone...
Saw a few already. What really gets me is the odd relationship between beltline and cabin: the cabin looks more like a tank turret than a car. I guess that's the "chopped n' channelled" look hot-rodders have always gone for, so it'll be a hit with GM's intended demographic. But it looks odd to the kind of person who would've stepped on a Camaro to drool over an Alfa 1750GTV or MGB GT had he been alive in 1969.

Giving recommendations without knowing the OP's budget is rather silly.

They get one detail really wrong that the ur-1969's had right: the selvage coin pocket. On the ur-1969's - who designed them? Wasn't it Adriano Goldschmeid or Rogan Gregory, someone like that - the coin pocket was rolled in on top, with the selvage edge inside. It was a classy touch. These new ones have it exposed on top for a gauche look.
Quote: Originally Posted by Macintosh I'd suggest Apple In-Ear Headphones. They sound really good, a lot of clarity and bass (as they have two drivers).

Most IEM's require continual purchase of filters to keep dust and earwax away from the drivers. I found on...
