Howdy folks, I've been driving a semi truck for the last bunch of years and have not had a TV or any kind of home music but a boombox for the last 20 years. The last home sound equipment I had was Optonica, JVC, Pioneer, sony with DLK loud speakers. System was around 250+ watts. I'm in need of some help trying to figure what kind of home gear to get today. Over the years I have collected quite a few CD's, but only listen to them in the truck. Will the digital stuff work well with any of the older type gear? I do not want to buy throw-away cheap stuff. Is there a way for the sharp digital sound to sound kind of like vinyl? Are there "Listening " rooms anymore? Any assistance will be helpful. "If it's too loud, you are too old"
