Sub s for Dali Megaline system
Thanks Jim for reminding of something I forgot to mention. A filter in a sub which rolls off frequencies below a cut off value can be a very useful tool. The more octaves a driver has to cover the greater the inter modulation distortion of that dr... 
Sub s for Dali Megaline system
Well, aldavis was working and unable to respond. 24 hours in a hospital over Thanksgiving makes me grumpy so I will try to repond as kindly as possible. Instead of "guessing" I actually measured the response in my room in which I also measured Rel... 
Sub s for Dali Megaline system
Acoustat6, The Torus is -3db@20hz. It's flat at 25hz. I've had the Torus, pairs of JL audio's, Rel's and Martin Logans all in my setup. I didn't buy the Torus because I couldn't justify the cost of a pair of them in my almost full range system. Th... 
New Rickie Lee Jones CD
I totally agree. 
Rolling Stone top 100 Guitarists - Howe/Van Halen
Jeff Beck was "Tapping" long before VH. Agree that many on the list are questionable and I also really enjoy Howe. 
Who's your guitar daddy now?
Man I wish I had a blue ray player but I've been waiting for the format to settle out and a really high end player ( audio wise)to arrive. 
Who's your guitar daddy now?
Philojet I've got the dvd it's great. I've seen live many of the people you mention. I agree with you about Clapton. No imagination. The thing about J.B. is he can play Jimi like Jimi he can play a slide like john lee Hooker, he can play scales li... 
Who's your guitar daddy now?

It is all about the ‘Room’, thinks Toole.
Well Shadorne, as Toole points out some of what we consider " good" sound quality is " governed by a cultivated taste". We have been taught that an elevated midbass is "good". If you don't have it it sounds "thin". Live rock concert mixes pound th...

I'm working my way through it. So far it makes a lot of interesting points ;some unrelated to the "room". I would encourage all to read it. Can't wait to finish it. -Jim

There is a discussion on audioasylum and avguide I believe. Valin ( among others) makes some comments. 
Can we objectively rate speaker cables?
The problem Mr. Tennis is the definition of " warmth". It could be rolled off highs, exagerated mids/bass etc. Certain cables like Cardas do seem to emphasize mid/bass ( or are they rolling off highs ? ) but no one has experience across " ALL ster... 
Can we objectively rate speaker cables?
Dave, Agreed. That is necessary for comparisons. Unfortunately in this case it's not sufficient as there are plenty of people on both sides of this issue with a good working knowledge of live instruments. The problem is that there are so many othe... 
Can we objectively rate speaker cables?
It can not possibly be that "frame of reference relative to live music events" or exposure to " great music in great venues" has anything to do with hearing/judging differences amongst cables as plenty of people with both are on each side of the d...
