Townshend platform under digital component or amplifier ?
I use these CRMP Cork/Neoprene Pads under KHorns to very good effect.  
Network optimization for serious streamers
@tonywinga I also found that while the fiber optic sound was ever so clean using an Audio Sensibility Signature I2S Ethernet Cable sounded less sterile. If you will, less digital and more analog sounding. Is there such a thing as too clean soundin...

Why do we demand so much from our systems?
@ghdprentice Bingo. My thoughts exactly. ("Kind of Blue is playing now for the 100000000 time). This seemed import to add. @whart The saying, “If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter,” is attributed to numerous historical figure...
