  1. What is everyone’s favorite way of enjoying these great concerts? I find my computer not very inspiring . . .


    • When I watch concerts, I use my desktop, but it is attached to a pretty big LED TV/monitor, and I am attached to an old recliner. Some BluRay devices, in particular the ones with built-in wifi, enable you to input an internet address so you can use your tv. If audio is the issue, the trick is to connect up to a receiver and real speakers or to use really good headphones (wired seems to work better than bluetooth for me in terms of quality).

      Does anyone else have a sweet setup they can tell us about?
