    If I did a contest for a primo 5ver, would anyone be interested in sitting down and listening to a full length symphony? Probably about 40 mins, no knowledge of classical music needed.

    Sure would. I do that most days anyhow. I don't know many composers names or score titles, but I love me some symphony! How would you make that into a contest?

    I am interested. When you say Classical, are you referring to the Classical music period 1750-1800?

    The Enigma Variation is excellent, but didn't move me that much.

    Well, SOMEONE has to win, so we'll see if anyone steps up to bat. Pretty darn nice sticks up for grabs. Minimum $10/stick.
