    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    This is the definition of "understatement". Holy smokes!

    H9: If you don't trust what you are hearing, then maybe you need to be less invested in a hobby which all the pleasure comes from listening to music.

    Dunno. That's one big crock if it's not Photoshopped.

    It does not appear to be Photoshopped but the trickery of photography does not stop there. Many times people here will sit a few feet behind an animal to give the appearance of a huge rack when in actuality it is the animal closer to the camera that makes it appear so large. Big toothy beast for sure but not as big as it looks. The last biggest croc I recall is about 30 feet long.

    One of the better non audio related video's I've seen on the tube. Especially the skydivers at around 2:30.

    Not the same croc. The one you refer to was in the Philippines and was indeed measured to be around 21 feet. The one in the other photo is from Africa and while it is large and it is NOT PHOTOSHOPPED, it is a bit of photo trickery called forced perspective. The people are placed quite a ways behind the croc before the photo is taken making it appear much larger than it actually is. A couple of sites have estimated that is is probably closer to 14-15 feet long, which is about average for a croc in the area.

    Here is one of the sites:

    I saw a 25 foot saltie on a croc farm live and in person outside Darwin. You cannot appreciate how huge they are. They also had about a 20 foot albino on the farm. Dinosaurs, that's all.
