Best power cord for Audioquest Niagara 1200
Power cables are not power conditioners, a good AC power cord would act like no cable at all.  Why would anyone need a 1000$ power cable after you spend 30k$ on power conditioning. I have done this exactly, I'm drinking the cool aid so whatever. ... 
Dedicated 20 amp circuit. 10/2 or 10/3?
I made all the stupid mistakes with power that are possible, including not checking the electricians work when he set up a reversed neutral one of the times they wired my room.  I have a large house with sub power panels, I didn't take my home ru... 
One DAC to Rule it All
Lyngdorf makes a good processor that is in one box. Of course active crossovers are best but doing all the processing under one brain makes the most sense. There is no way to get the latency correct if you use a stereo , multi sub and surround sys...

@jea48  I had a panasonic 3700 but the one made for portable recording, I got into so much trouble with it because it could never hold sync, the way the time code and the sample rate were derived didn’t work. Back then 35 years ago there were a fe...

@kirk9  Thanks for the note, but what I was getting at was the idea that only current moves in any circuit voltages and resistances change but current is the only thing that moves because current (I) is the measure of electrons moving by a specifi...

Have you ever thought of the fact that like AC cables the cable isn't what's important but the connections and the first connection inside the equipment. For some reason people think a crimped connection to a connection that only pressure scrapes ...

@kraftwerkturbo The company I was working for was building a new set of studios from the ground up and money was not a problem custom everything including famous speaker designer who came in and designed the speakers and wall they were mounted it ...

OK there are 3 major problems that audiophile people have that no audio engineer who records or mixes music concerning cables has and that is  #1- Of course a cheap cable is not going to sound very good there are many reasons why poor quality cabl... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
Here is a review of AudioQuest battery cable.   https://audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/audioquest-go-4-speaker-cable-review.37308/    
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
@akgwhiz @ozzy You say "if it can’t be measured it can’t be real" as a false argument. You are missing something very fundamental in electronics and physics, frequency changes can easily be measured on scopes that are much more precise than any... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
I've used cables professionally in live sound, movie production sound, recording studios and post production studios and have never noticed any difference in a cables sound due to breaking in nor has anyone I've ever worked with, including the bes... 
Ribbon cable inside amplifiers
@audphile1  Exactly right brother.   
Ribbon cable inside amplifiers
@waytoomuchstuff you were talking to someone who knew what they were doing , ribbon connectors are the flag that says this box shouldn’t sell for audiophile prices. Also my new Boulder Preamp has ribbon connectors all over it but it does sound ... 
Ribbon cable inside amplifiers
@audphile1  i was just talking about replacing ribbon connectors with chips. For your imagination, no separate electronic boxes at all only speakers, yes you will have to plug in your speakers but by then people will realize that AC is changed to... 
Ribbon cable inside amplifiers
Also today audio flows through integrated chips with incredibly small parts, plugins run audio through digital hoola hoops everyday all the time on every piece of music recorded with modern equipment. Chips are the best way to handle audio and the...
