Enjoy the Music.com's head honcho and Chief Editor Tom Lyle is laying back this month as I scribble a bit about this month's issue and a few other tid-bits of info. Last month's KEF Muo contest was a resounding success! This month we're giving our readers a chance to win a sweet set of incredible OPPO PM-2 planar magnetic headphones! Am sure you're already familiar with the many awards their PM-1 ‘phones have received, so imagine how great their higher level PM-2 cans sound. We know you love reviews and we got you covered there too.
But first we have the great Roger Skoff discussing if you like it hard or soft. Now before you get your panties into a bind, the article is about audio formats and the hard choices we all make. Turntable lovers need to read Rick Becker's revisit of the remarkable Charisma Audio Reference One MC cartridge. He loves it! We also have a world premiere review by Rick of the Coincident Speaker Technology Dynamo 34SE MK II integrated tube amp. The Dynamo 34SE MKII improves on the original and is an excellent audio bargain at $1499.
We have heard your cried for more value-priced gear and we deliver. Within this month's issue of Enjoy the Music.com's Review Magazine we get our hungry hands on the Audioengine HD6 premium powered speaker system. At $749 you get great tunes and modern features.

You could be wrong, so check out the review and find out for yourself. You might be pleasantly surprised.
We're continuing our Musician Series this month with two great videos. One with Juilliard and NYU Professor of jazz drums Billy Drummond and another with David Chesky. Am sure you're familiar with David and he gives you some insight into the direction he's taking Chesky Records. Billy Drummond is an outstanding jazz drummer and he's also an audiophile too! Watch what he's got going on within his video plus we added a few more vids of him playing great jazz music.
