Hey Graham,

You don't have to explain yourself to me - I'm currently fighting the urge
to get a Perpetual Technologies P-3A DAC with an upgrade to Signature II
status by Modwright. I'm telling myself that there's no point until I
upgrade the rest of my kit. But that just makes me want to spend more money!

I'm still at a very early stage in my ripping odyssey - 28 albums done,
probably another 600 to go! Perhaps when I've finished I'll treat myself to
a new hifi inc. DAC to celebrate!

Have you guys ever been surffing music and wished you could go up a
level? I could always hit the brouesr button, but the playlist will back
out a selection too.

So it would be great for navigation if we could just go back a level.
Watch it!... I don't mean go from and artist back to the "A's" in a brouse
section. If you are in the Elton John directory I would like to go back
the the nav point where I selected Elton.

I hope I'm not alone on this one.
