    I do believe that you are the closest member to me at the moment. I know Tim used to live around these parts but from what I understand, he moved and come to think of it, I have not seen him post in a while. It seems a lot of the crew here are in CA and WA states. The rest are across the big...

    Sublime Sound

    This has been interesting to me, learning that people have different meanings for the same term. I went ahead and started a thread about this very subject. The link is below... Tom

    What is "Pin-Point Imaging" to you?

    Good morning ladies and gentlemen of the WBF. In another thread, there has been a discombobulated discussion with what exactly this means to listeners. The comments suggested that this term, with regards to hi-fi reproduction, needs a little bit more clarity with what it actually means. This...

    Sublime Sound

    My apologies Peter for the off topic post here. I heard them at Jolida Headquarters in MD. The front end was all MBL and the room was approximately 27x54 with IIRC, 9 or 10 foot ceilings. The source was R2R and was (at the time) considered one of the best R2R's on the East Coast. I heard what...

    Sublime Sound

    Fake imaging to me is what an MBL speaker offers. I have never seen a live violin player with a 6 foot wide image. Yes, it's "airy" and "spacious" but grossly overaggressive in perceived size. This is one extreme. The other extreme IME and on my system is pin-point locationality cues that allow...

    Gentlemen, let's the keep any and all references to politics OUT of this discussion. Even political "swipes" and things that you know will only lead to a negative impact for this thread and for the forum. If you want to discuss politics, the admin team will gladly offer you an involuntary...

    Sublime Sound

    Threads like this do make one wonder whether or not audiophiles actually do listen to the music or their gear. As for pin point imaging and having to choose between this and the sound of live acoustic music? Eh, I'll take both please. No need to choose. One can have both. Well, at least within...

    The WBF humor and joke thread.

    Priorities... Husband: My wife is missing. She went fishing yesterday and has not come home... Sergeant at Police Station: What is her height? Husband: Gee, I'm not sure. A little over five-feet tall. Sergeant: Weight? Husband: Don't know. Not slim, not really fat. Sergeant: Color of eyes...

    Matching Pre-amps and Amps: Same Brand or Not?

    I have had the same brand with Pre's and Amps before but was not impressed with the house sound or sonic signature. IME, I have found that finding the right combo yields better end results for me. Ideally, an integrated should be the "best" option, in theory, because it eliminates the need for...

    Good afternoon all. This thread has swayed off of the original topic and has turned into something that is not in the best interest of the forum to continue. With that said, the thread will now be closed. If you have a specific question about the original topic, please post said question in a...

    Genesis Advanced Technologies SuperSub Subwoofer

    Hi, Ron. Based upon my experience with servo subs, while it may be optimized for a particular set of speakers, unless there is a cable specifically manufactured and wired to only pair with a particular set of speakers? A Direct Servo sub will work with any loudspeaker....and quite well too...

    Dedicated circuit for each outlet pair?

    @DonH50 - I was not being sarcastic but after your explanation, it is crystal clear why you would say that. I read that statement and assumed something else. It was this misinterpretation that I found surprising. Thanks for clarifying. Tom

    Dedicated circuit for each outlet pair?

    I am surprised at that. Tom

    Dedicated circuit for each outlet pair?

    So, switch the outlets around. You do not need an electrician to do this....if you know what you are doing. It's just an outlet. Tom

    Question about uploading documents

    Hi, Tima and good afternoon to you. Do you mean in a private message or when posting? They should both be the same. Below is a screenshot I made that highlights the various ways to attach something. For the image seen below, I just hit "Attach Files", then choose full screen. You should be able...

    What's Everyone Reading

    Gentlemen, this has swayed into the political territory and our stance here as admins is that we do not tolerate political banter on this board. This is not up for debate. Let's get back to the topic of "What's Everyone Reading" and leave the heated discussions to other avenues that are...

    Pros & Cons of tube rectification in a preamp?

    Hello MadFloyd and good evening to you sir. Of all of the combinations I have experienced through the years, I prefer tube. Reason being is that I can change it on a whim. Personally, I think this is an underrated aspect of a systems performance. Tom

    Doctor's Orders-Part Two-The New Listening Room Of Steve Williams

    Gentlemen, one of the best, if not the best sound stage and imaging I have ever heard in my time on this Earth was on a porch in the mountains that was only about 7 feet deep with a backdrop of a valley going down about a mile. The side reflections were nothing but a 2' outtake of a stone...

    Vishay Z-Foil vs Audio Note Non-Magnetic Resistors

    My apologies, ayreman. My response was about a post on this thread. Since you mod things as I do, I thought you and others may have been interested. I was wrong and for that, I apologize. Tom
