Hey guys......honestly, I was not impressed with any of these artists.   Sounded to disco to me at times.  Not judging anyone's musical tastes, they are just not for me.

I can understand that.  William orbit stuff is all over the board. Quite a bit is used in movie soundtracks. I am partial to synthesizer shit so it does not annoy me. No offense taken. :D

KINGMAN, IT IS BETTER THAT THAT HORRIBLE "CHUCKIE" SOUNDTRACK CRAP THAT TOYMAKER LOVES SO MUCH!!!

I know people hate it when new forum members resurrect old posts but I had to recommend "Hello Waveforms" to any Orbit fans.
Up there: M-Audio, Cambridge, and Monitor
Down here: M-Audio, Parasound, Onkyo, and DefTech
Over there: Sony, B&O, JBL and Polk
