    Power Cords & Cables Sonic Changes Obviated by Room Correction and To What Extent?

    Generally I agree with you, I would think there is no substitute for excellent more properly placed floorstanding speakers re giving a great phantom 3D image extending well in back of the speakers. Though my recent setup and demo of a Lyngdorf MP50 SSP at a friends place showed amazing not...

    Power Cords & Cables Sonic Changes Obviated by Room Correction and To What Extent?

    Power Cords & Cables Sonic Changes Obviated by Room Correction and To What Extent? Interesting exchange on another AV Forum on the web: ___________________________ This gets me questioning the extent to which excellent room correction, such as Trinnov Optimizer, etc, obviates some or...

    Lyngdorf MP-50 SSP & ROOM PERFECT room correction REVIEW!

    I definitely liked what I heard last Saturday at my friend Dave's home, the Lyngdorf MP-50 SSP, after we applied its Room Perfect optimization. Dave, your room has gotta be one of the absolute worst in terms of planning the best home theatre sonics (which you readily admit that you have these...

    As We Get Older - Hearing Aids for High End Audio/Concerts & Home Theatre

    Before I took back the Phonak Marvel HAs the other day, I went through each instrumental track of a great hi-rez demo disc with HAs in and out: https://www.hdtracks.com/audiophile-hi-res-system-test I heard everything fine without the HAs! NICE! I think I am feeling so much better now than...

    As We Get Older - Hearing Aids for High End Audio/Concerts & Home Theatre

    So in this HA demo I've been to a number of concerts: Spyro Gyra; Christian McBride Big Band; Salt River Brass; and Mike Vax Ron Romm. I've also watched tv/movies and listened to lots of music in my dedicated audiophile home theatre. Bottom line is that yea, unless the HAs really provide benefit...

    My Audiologist office repeated my hearing test today - now that I am fully recovered from my ruptured appendix and my immunity is back up to normal. I swear I hear better these days than the last few months of last year when I demod hearing aids back when my appendix was bothering me although I...

    As We Get Older - Hearing Aids for High End Audio/Concerts & Home Theatre

    I think my appendix issues were the root cause. Appendix issues all cleared up, presto, I can hear better! My appendix General Surgeon of course isn't an expert on hearing. My Audiologist has had a few instances over the course of her career where patients hearing improved after being ill...

    As We Get Older - Hearing Aids for High End Audio/Concerts & Home Theatre

    CT scan clear, full bill of health, appendix with tiny hole looks normal and don't require surgery to remove. YEA! What's really intriquing is after being on antibiotics awhile, my hearing cleared up and got better. No question about it. I play test tones from a hi rez 2XHD demo disc. Last few...

    Update: I'm more than 6 weeks out from my IV antiobiotics for my ruptured appendix, IVs started Dec 20 and ended Jan 10! Subjectively my hearing now seems the best I can ever remember, at live concerts and for two channel and movies/tv in my theater. Not just in terms of frequency, but also re...

    SonicTransporter i5 Review

    I love my Sonic Transporter i5 but replaced it with a Sonic Transporter i7 for ROON DSP due to latter's two ethernet ports so it can connect direct to my Sonore Signature Rendu SE! So I have a Sonic Transporter i5 for sale - PM me if interested!

    I am doing great and hopefully will have a clear bill of heatlh, from my ruptured appendix, in a few days, then in a few weeks have the appendix removed laparoscopically. Meanwhile, been on one oral and different IV antiobiotics at outpatient hospital daily, and this will hopefully be done in a...

    As We Get Older - Hearing Aids for High End Audio/Concerts & Home Theatre

    Looks like I'll be on siesta from demoing hearing aids for a bit. Due to my appendix rupture, I'm on IV antibiotics at the hospital daily, and info is they can adversely affect hearing (hopefully only temporarily). So until I'm recovered (I hope) and off antibiotics no sense in further demoing...

    As We Get Older - Hearing Aids for High End Audio/Concerts & Home Theatre

    I think my hearing may have changed a bit in the positive direction even without hearing aids recently. In listening to test tones, 8 kHz was perhaps about half of 6 kHz, and I couldn't hear 10 kHz. Now, 8 kHz is closer to 6 kHz, and I can hear 10 kHz at abut half of 8 or 6 kHz. Why? I think I...

    But for me, the ReSound Lynx did little. But this may depend upon the specifics of one's hearing loss! One size does not fit all!

    My Audiologist is Lainie Hales, Au.D., 480-273-8680 Valley ENT 4140 E Baseline in Mesa. I called and saw ENT Dr Gonzalez to have ears cleaned and hearing test and told them I wanted to see Audiologist as well. Let Lainie know you're an audiophile having heard about her from me! I'm still in...

    As We Get Older - Hearing Aids for High End Audio/Concerts & Home Theatre

    What did you like about the OPN2 vs the OPN1 inasmuch as the OPN1 has speced higher freq extension to 10K (which doesn't mean that it sounds better as this depends how the HAs music mode is programmed and sounds).

    Note the Phonaks I demos were Phonak Audeo B-R. Sometimes in this thread I mistakenly referred to them as Phonak Bolero which they are not.

    My observations of using the ReSound hearing aids at the Peter White/Rick Braun Christmas jazz concert last night are similar to my observations in my own two channel setup. First, phenomenal concert. They all sang, too, quite nicely, one song acapella with no instruments! Very 3d presentation...

    I've done some internet sleuthing to discover that the latest top line Phonak (the top line Phonak I demod came out in 2015, and the latest line came out a few weeks ago), ReSound and Oticon are speced for dynamic range (ability to process incoming audio) at 111 (this is for the just out Marvel...
