Cable Goop Review George is going to freak!!
I get my bottle tomorrow but now I’m wondering about the long term effects of this material.  If it takes 6 weeks to gain optimal benefits what happens beyond that?  Does the material stabilize and the joint stabilize?   What about after one or tw...

Jerry123, we certainly are all messed up.  The minute any of us moved beyond a home theatre receiver and a roll of speaker wire we essentially took the blue pill.  Things that I scoffed at in the 90s such as expensive patch cords- well, I now have... 
Cable Goop Review George is going to freak!!
You guys have convinced me to try this stuff.  My bottle is supposed to arrive Tuesday but it is coming via FedEx so who knows. I’m tempted to do the whole system at once starting with the circuit breakers in my dedicated circuits to the pins on a... 
Fun With Cable Risers
Thank you. No, I have always run the cables in parallel. The risers space the two signal cables 1/2” apart whereas before the risers the cables lay side by side. I try to keep power cables distanced and at right angles to the signal cables. I am u... 
If Power Cords Don't Matter...
If they don’t believe in power cords because they don’t understand how they work, I’m guessing they do not fly in airplanes either.  
Fun With Cable Risers
If you look at my system page, I show a picture of some cable risers that I made myself.  I used ceramic electric fence insulators with 3/4" hardwood dowels and number 33 rubber bands for the suspension.  The 4x4" wood platforms sit on rubber feet... 
Sonus Faber vs Wilson
The subs integrated perfectly into my system.  I have to either turn them off or put my hand in front of the cones to tell if they are working.  And I agree with you that once you experience that last octave down to 20 Hz it is hard to give it up.... 
Sonus Faber vs Wilson
Hi James633- I actually have subs in my room.  I put them near the corners behind the main speakers.  After hearing the Wilson Alexia 2's for the first time, I came back and "tuned" the subs to the room better using what I heard at the store.  I p... 
Magico A3 price increases 50%+
Yes, some of today’s high performance high powered cars use brushless screw pumps.  They cost about $20 to make mated to a $15 controller.  Feel better?

Hi Jafant,I brought home an AQ Niagra power conditioner with an AQ Hurricane power cord.  Ow! That hurt the wallet a bit.  It was the price of a very good amplifier.  Regardless, it is not going back to the store.  The biggest improvement?  The hi... 
Sonus Faber vs Wilson
I haven't heard the Sonus Faber line in a couple of decades.  The ones I heard some time ago sounded really good to me.  However, I have been to my new favorite store in Atlanta three times this past year with my eye on a pair of Wilson speakers t...

I was working with some Ford engineers in the early 90's at their proving grounds.  Next door to us was the Mustang team.  They had a large stack of tires and I could hear their cars on the handling course, tires squealing almost constantly all da...

Tom,Thank you for the information.  I learned something.  I ordered a new throw rug for my room to go in front of the speakers.  I unwittingly ordered a wool rug because I like wool and I opted for the more expensive fiber pad instead of the much ...

Hi everyone.  I just made a change to my listening room.  I removed the carpet and installed 3/4" hardwood flooring.  The upgrade exceeded my expectations.  The Thiel CS6's have never sounded better.  The new floor not only made the bass tighter a...

Hello brettmcee,  I will chime in.  I have had my CS6 speakers for 16 years now.  I know them pretty well.  As far as amplification they need lots of current.  The impedance drops to 1 ohm at some frequencies.  As a rule if your amp can double wat...
