Tex, did you pull that off of his website or is it a quote from one of his YT videos?  
OCD mickey website and negativity.
I’m guessing many of you are not familiar with the hit TV series titled, "Kung Fu" that came out in 1972 to which I alluded to in my previous post. Some years back, I had a young engineer in the office that often used the term "grasshopper". One d...

OCD Mikey is an audio anti-salesman.  He is the anti-hero, the John Wick of the Audio World.  He is the bogeyman that lurks in the shadows of your listening room.  Rumors say he can walk on ribbon cables without leaving a crease.  He wanders the c... 
recommend PRAT Integrated amplifiers (not Naim)
Hi mapman, up until a few months ago I would pretty much agree with you. But if I listened to vinyl for a few days and then went back to digital I would hear a difference in PRAT. It was clear that vinyl was much better. About a month after I got ...

Of course, but when the starting premise is denial over what people hear- that’s pseudo science.

Hey the science stooges just showed up.  The ASR(AssesStoogesRetrobates) crowd to try and spread their disinformation.   Go back to your own website where you will be appreciated secretguy.  Your nonsense is not needed here.

PRAT is pace, rhythm and timing.  For me, I can’t just A/B a song and hear it.  I have to listen for a while to one setup and then switch.  I relate it to turntables because that is what I have the most experience hearing.  I could hear some turnt... 
Volti does it again!
I started with a 2005 NB Miata in East Tennessee 18 years ago.  Joined the local Miata Club.  The weekend drives were a lot of fun.  Got to see a lot of East TN and NC.  Got the bug in me to get a Z4.  It was faster straight line but heavier.  The...

Hi Greg, Well said.  Life is grand.  Keep it simple and enjoy the road trips.  You make some beautiful looking and great sounding speakers.  Most will never get to appreciate the sound of them or see their beauty in person.   One point:  My Audi... 
Antipodes K50 G4 Music Server/Player
@ricred1  Congratulations on your purchase.  I can only imagine how the Oladra will sound.  Amazing the difference the music server makes in the sound.  And I love the looks of the Oladra.  I wish the K50 had rated some artistic design effort lik...

I quit selling on fleabay 10 years ago for that reason.  Buyers would decide to return things for no good reason and I was forced to accept the returns with a full refund- and pay the return postage.

When I sell my used gear on these websites I certainly do not want an item returned.  I describe the item exactly as it is and buyers should have the understanding that the used market is not a buy and try proposition.  Speakers are the most susce... 
Furman Upgrade to Niagra
Save and avoid expensive debt. Home mortgage is unavoidable for most of us but still better than renting. (Maybe that paradigm has changed since Covid). Car loans are avoidable but I indulged myself a few times with new cars over the years. If you... 
Volti does it again!
When I heard the Volti speakers at the show he was using some $40k SET amps with a Lampizator DAC.  Certainly hard to go wrong with that setup. It's common to think that each component in a system should not be too out of line cost wise with the ... 
Volti does it again!
If someone can determine how a speaker sounds by looks and spec sheets, I'll be impressed.  Case in point:  At Axpona 2022 I looked in the door of this very large ballroom and saw two diminutive granite towers- two way speakers.  No music was play...
