    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

    I post my own opinions except when posting as a moderator in green.

    I am also understanding that when TechDas releases their new and anticipated Air Force Zero turntable, it will come with a custom Artesania rack made for the AF Zero

    Those damping plates are great imho Steve. I use a bunch, and for the money, incredibly good. I think they are the equivalent of the double thickness extra long HRS DX Damper Plates...and Artesania plates are smaller. I have been told their racks are also great, though i have heard truly remarkable things about Critical Mass, so in your case, may just a nice to know on the racks. That said, you might have fun with the plates on top of various different components...no doubt Philip will have good advice as usual.

    I will be at Philip's house this evening

    The damping plates did solidify his sound since I last heard it. They are from small to huge in size.

    I wonder if there is ANY space on the top of your magnificent amps for these? I have the big discs, and use them in various areas and have not found a spot where they dont 'solidify' the sound as you say. Look forward to any further observations you may have about them. Enjoy the evening...

    Big evening with a black tie party in honor of Philips birthday. I'll let him tell you how many. I'm sure it'll be a great evening.

    Hi Steve,

    Did you have any thoughts on Artesania and particularly the big damping plates after this event?
