just out of curiosty... whats the difference between a "micro system" a "mini system" and a "midi system"

refers to sizes (physical size) of Stereo systems.

There is no actual definition, its a relative size (to a full sized system which is largely unavailable now, due to miniaturisation)

What systems are largely unavailable now? If you are refering to seperates, there is a BIG market for them, and people are actually spending more money than they ever did.

Hi Baldy.

The "full size systems" which were (are) amplifier, tuner, cd deck, tape deck, turntable, graphics equaliser.

Sorry, I didnt really mean to say they are *not* available ever, but more that they are usually only available through specialist HI-FI stores. You dont usually see the real article at Noel Leemings etc.

Probably a good reason, as you still need a second mortgage to buy one.
I had one, but got rid of it years ago, just too big. I still have a set of Goodmans speakers and enclosures, cost a mint. Trouble is, they do not sound as good as the ones that come with a $600 midi unit now. Technology has moved on and left that brand behind.

Audio is largely in the ear of the beholder.

And I want to know, is an Audiophile a person who abuses sound?

Are you agreeing or correcting my spelling :D ?

BTW... My system is a seperate component system. Aaahhh, the best things in life take a life time to collect!
