I Don't Understand What Determines When A Thread Gets The Axe
It was me, wasn’t it.  I bet it was me.  I should have never talked about Alan Parsons Project.  
Aries-Cerat Helene Review
Thank you.  I agree.  I will have to let the phono preamp settle back in for a couple of days first.

I don’t mind at all. I love the open discussion. I have only interacted with my dealer, Scott and he has been great to work with. As for an update- it is a cozy, rainy Saturday morning here and I have been listening to music guilt free. Sure, I co... 
Power cable Advice...
Hey squared80, did you just wake up from a 40 year coma?  The debate about cables making a difference was closed decades ago.  Get out and experience the world and then your comments might become more meaningful.  And watch out for the snake oil s... 
Have Luxman 509x. Considering Pass Labs INT-250 or Dan D’Agostino Progression Integrated
I am using the Pass Labs X250.8 monos.  Love the sound.  A few things I found using these amps that improve on their already great sound are: 1) Better power cords.  Don’t skimp on power cords.  They will be expensive but worth it.  2) Dedicated p... 
The Emperor Has No Clothes!!
Here’s a story for you all regarding the room.  I have my listening room which is quite large but has dormers.  I had some corner traps and a few absorption panels on the front wall behind the speakers.  Now my shop is 30x30 with a drywall ceiling...

Thank you for the invitation and likewise if you are ever around about the Savannah, GA area.  I live not too far from there-100 miles from downtown.  Hey, we’ve been known to drive down there for dinner- not much else to do in middle Georgia.  It... 
The Emperor Has No Clothes!!
Ever wonder how we see black on a white projection screen?  You could say it is confirmation bias.  The brighter the projector and the darker the room, the blacker blacks look on the screen,  The white screen has become the darkest surface in the ... 
The Emperor Has No Clothes!!
This is a jaded bunch. It seems many of you have not had the pleasure of experiencing a well tuned, high end system. Brick & Mortar stores are scarce these days and even then finding a well done set up is rare. Visiting an Axpona is a great wa... 
OCD mickey website and negativity.
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 mickey website and negativity.
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 ... 
recommend PRAT Integrated amplifiers (not Naim)
Of course, but when the starting premise is denial over what people hear- that’s pseudo science.  
recommend PRAT Integrated amplifiers (not Naim)
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.
