Mapleshade Steamer Kit.....anyone?
That's the problem. You can't get the steam hot enough to clean the vinyl without causing more stuff to leach out. Then you're just pushing the stuff around. Works great for engine blocks, though.

Sirius radio quality vs redbook cd player
I gave it a try, got tired of the dropouts (it is line of sight to the sat, so signal is lost constantly around here. Then I put in a cd, listened to that for 5 minutes, never turned on sat radio again. I also had to fight them to turn it off. I h... 
Phono cartridge left / right output voltage differ
It is also mathematically correct to compute 20 log for each voltage and subtract the results. However, you have to get the decimal points correct for millivolt values. That was my mistake. Using the quotient method as Al posted avoids the pit I f...

Wayne Limited- Group Delay Filter????

Question About NORDOST cables
Try a pair of Clear Day Shotguns. I am using them now for the mid-bass in my system. They are every bit as good as the Nordost Valkyrja I use on the upper frequency drivers but not quite as extended. That's why the Clear Days run the low end and t... 
Help me with treating my room
First thing is that you have an issue with LF build up that is seen in the waterfall plot. Most all rooms have an issue like this but the graphs are really telling. Some kind of bass treatments should be used to reduce the "hang" time of those fre... 
Ungrounded power cord: Will I die?
I believe 20 mA can stop your breathing, 100mA is lethal. At that point, the argument of where the short is becomes academic. ;-)
