Are the new Ohm Walsh speakers Audiophile quality?
Hello,Does anyone near Sacramento, CA have current production Ohm speakers that I could audition briefly? Being on the opposite coast from Ohm makes returning a pair expensive on top of the $50 initial shipping charge. Thank you. 
Anyone Compared ARC Ref 75SE and 75 With KT150
Why compare monoblocks with higher power (and cost)against stereo amplifiers with lower power (and cost) thinking it reflects on the absolute amplifier quality? The only thing that can be determined is which is a better match for the speakers bein... 
Power cable "Break in" question
I like to plug in multiple devices. A refrigerator demands higher current but only runs sporadically. A lamp draws continuously like an amp operating (but without fluctuation) or on standby. I make no guarantee that my method is beneficial. It is ... 
Great female voices
Mapman,Give the kid a break. How genuine are most female singers many audiophiles drool over? They pump out easy-listening elevator music. There is no emotion. Their primary objective is to sound pretty and put someone to sleep while they sip scotch. 
How is a CD read?
RW, How can the problem be with the cable if all the other tracks play correctly? I assume other CDs also play correctly since the OP only mentioned one CD.I would play the offending tracks on a different CD player, even a computer or optical driv...

Magtech Amplifier
If a Thermal Trak transistor fails it will cause the amplifier to run very hot on that channel even on idle. The entire top of the amplifier will be hot but if a measurement is taken one side will be hotter than the other unless there has been a f... 
Are all craiglist used ads scam?
