Tube Rolling
Brent Jesse’s site is a fantastic resource of information.  When you want a little info on a tube’s characteristic sound it’s there. He himself has always been helpful to me in finding uncommon tubes that he didn’t even know existed.   whenever so... 
I found the best way to recycle my old tubes!
What a bright idea!  It’s brilliant! Love it.   
Is There Just One Single Album That Does It For You, Completely? Just One.
As everyone mentions, it’s hard to choose just one.  If I had to do it then I’d take “Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”.   It has a little of various modes on it and is still one (ONE) of my all time Genesis favorites. Hopefully I’d find ... 
Swiss Digital FUSE BOX Question Thread
Yes good idea.  I was thinking about that. Try one at a time and see how it goes.  Maybe I can pick up a Swiss Fuse Box and try it different places and go from there. I already have some cheaper upgraded fuses in all the equipment and a Gustard Na...

Swiss Digital FUSE BOX Question Thread
I have two large dual chassis mono-block amps that need 8 amp slow blows, so two there. A Schiit Yggy - 1/2 amp fuse.  Preamp has two 2 amp slow blows (has different transformers which are individually fused, filaments turn on first (lots and lots... 
Swiss Digital FUSE BOX Question Thread
I’m just saying, for people that are going to take out the protection why don’t you get rid of the actual connection too.  Every connection you can get rid of will improve the sound quality.  I really like the idea of removing the connection all t... 
Swiss Digital FUSE BOX Question Thread
This is just a question, not a criticism.  I’ve been wondering why everyone is working so hard on finding the right metal, polishing, etc. and not just bypassing the entire junk fuse holder and slug and just wiring passed the whole thing with good... 
Anyone else using slugs instead of fuses? Comments on metals used and sound please
All things said I do like and agree with firstonetalgull   As audio enthusiasts and tweekers we continue the search for the best sound possible no matter the amount of work involved or risk to the equipment.  Yes unfortunately I do understand that...

I know you’re going to do what you’re going to do but I’ll just say this.  As an electronics tech in several audio companies I’ve seen the damage this kind of thing causes.  Especially in tube amps but the same goes for solid state.  I think tube ... 
Power Cables - Third Party or OEM
I believe the actual equipment you are powering has a good deal to do with which power cable you choose and maybe more. Not just the conditioner, etc.  In powering my Schiit Yggy LIM DAC I tried WyWires, Kimber, heavy gauge basic AC cable, Tara La... 
The Audiophile Upgrade Easiest to Ignore
Here are a few spec questions that you will now need when choosing Audiophile Hearing Aids.   Bluetooth connectivity: Can I connect my digital sources directly to the hearing aids bypassing my external DAC and speakers? S/N: Class A: Gain: Fr... 
Steve Guttenberg finally reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8b loudspeaker.
I’ve found the LFT-8b’s to be very critical on setup.  I have mine just slightly toed in.  There is a point where as you listen and adjust the speakers in/out and tilted up/down that all of a sudden it comes into perfect alignment and the sound al... 
Jay's "Ugly Truth" video
I thought the video was pretty good, although I did skim through some of it. I’ve never watched any of his other ones. Being of an addictive nature anyway, I do have to remind myself on and off that it’s about the music for one and two, it’s suppo... 
Stealth Audio Cables - Customer Service - Seeking Your Thoughts
I’ve seen a lot of these kinds of answers from mfrs. What it amounts to is they don’t want to do it. The cables are probably (I don’t know positively) made by machines so having to have someone sit down and split one is a hassle to them when they ...
