The Emperor Has No Clothes!!

Read a post the other day where someone characterized a server/streamer as “sweet and tube-like sounding”.  It read like a parody.  Am thinking of starting a company based on tube rectified power supply for network switch.  Crowd funding?



Single malt is definitely the best room treatment in my experience.  Re windows, yes, I know there’s a lot of dogma out there on this, but my experience with my room has been very positive.  There’s a youtuber called “Acoustics Insider” I’ve recently run across who provided a potential explanation why, based on absorption rates of different materials.  (Bottom line:  at lower frequencies, not much difference between glass and drywall; at higher frequencies, bigger differences, but since high frequency is more directional, glass behind speakers doesn’t matter as much.) YMMV, of course.




I think that's what i found--the drape doesn't affect low F but it does help cool off the highs just a bit

Not that the highs were "hot" to begin with but to me the dampened highs sound better YMMV

Heck guys I wouldn't concern yourselves with "looking silly." Many's the time when I am having a party at my home (my wife's friends usually) and the non-audiophiles gather around to ogle the system that they snicker when they see the "old fashioned" glowing tubes which they assumed had ended along about WW2. Most of them give me a look which seems to say, "Who is the anachronistic old fart?"
