    The stunning DMA-500 Anniversary Reference monos take center stage

    I'm aware that Peter wrote up his comments on our recent visit to Tasos' house on Saturday. I have not read them (yet) and just having got my internet back working I thought I would quickly write up some (very brief - heading out to a concert!) thoughts . This was my 3rd time hearing Tasos'...

    Getting into 4K video

    I have the Panasonic UB820 and love it. It replaced my previous Panasonic UHD player (forget the model) which is just gathering dust.

    Some useful info for any Q series owners

    This looks very familiar. Be careful not to strip any of the screws...

    Magico M3 latest Changes - Pods with spikes

    Hi Bob, those photos are gorgeous, especially the 1st photo in post #21 with the wooden horns. Which brand and model speakers are those?

    Visit to Boston to Hear the Sublime Sound of PeterA

    Why does perfect azimuth (as opposed to 'close enough') matter?

    Suspended floor and bass node...

    How is the bass different between the two models? I've never heard anyone mention this before.

    Naturalness of Sarah McLachlan Vocals - Analog Versus Digital

    My favorite SM album is Solace. Great on LP. Have no idea if it was recorded analog but since it was also with Pierre Marchand and prior to Fumbling, there's a good chance it is. I'm guessing the Freedom Sessions are also recorded analog.

    Dido: No Angel and Life For Rent

    Ron, this is the 2nd time I've heard you use the term 'menthol' to describe a sonic attribute. Can you elaborate? Does one have to be (or been) a smoker to know what this means? On a separate note, what happened to this wonderful singer? She seduced us with these two albums and disappeared.

    How Do Horn Speakers Get Their Gorgeous Life-like Tonality?

    While I think you're on to something (I've never heard a valve preamp that didn't muddy up the sound by comparison) I think you can do much better than the Soulution. Try the dartzeel for a LOT less coloration.

    Suspended floor and bass node...

    Yep. Carpet is in bad shape and we're putting in hardwood in the kitchen so it just seemed like a good (aesthetic) solution.

    Can anyone recommend a specialist?
