Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra French hornist Ken Strahl sits between two Fairfax "walls of sound" speakers, the centre-pieces of his state-of-the-art home stereo system.  The system occupied two rooms in his home and cost him $7500, which is a crazy amount of money to spend on a stereo in 1979.  But then again he's bringing in French hornist coin so he could obviously afford it.  This is the definition of a slow news day.
