My living room is 19 x 24 feet x 15 feet high. I'm very much enjoying my present system, and am considering adding a 2nd 911 into the system. My gear is all inside a cabinet, so there are space limitations. If I added a 2nd 911, there would only be 1-2 inches of space above each amp. Does...
My present interconnects consist of 2-3K retail Synergistic Research cables and Isotek power cords (approx 1-3K each). For the Transparent demo, I heard the Ref XL speaker cables + Ref XL interconnects to the pre-amp and amp. For the AQ demo, I heard the Firebird speaker cables + 2 power cables...
The Transparent cables were calibrated to my system.
The Transparent Ref XL is 17.4K/10 ft
The AQ Firebird is 17.5K/10 ft
MB Ultra=25K/10 feet
I presently own Synergistic Research CTS speaker cables.
I'd say the Transparent cables provided a minor improvement heard when I added them in and when I transitioned back to my regular cables, whereas many tracks provided an "Oh my" moment with the MB cables. The MB cables revealed clearer highs and improved bass. On some albums, I had to turn...
Count me in as a convert and fan of the MasterBuilt cables. I recently auditioned the following speaker cables in my system:
Transparent Ref XL
MB Ultra speaker cables + power cord to the amp
The MB Ultras were clearly a step ahead of the others. I'd describe the music as so...
I upgraded from Alexia v1 to the Alexx a few months ago. Despite break in and professional alignment of drivers and positioning, I'm not really satisfied with the sound.
A- The bass is very subdued compared to the Alexias. Its there, but its very much in the background.
The Alexx is about 6 inches deeper than the Alexia. I was hoping for a depth footprint like the Maxx 3. Any thoughts as to the suitability of having this speaker closer to the wall behind it compared to the Alexia? I have limited depth in my living room. Height is not a problem.

In general, rather than express dismay at these acts of cruelty and demand investigations, the response of the ag industry is obfuscation.
The industry has attempted to pass "ag-gag" legislation in 11 states that would make it a crime/felony to document abuse on farms and not turn the material...
Excellent book and citation.
In response to the OP's rhetorical question; "What can one do about animal cruelty on farms"?
1-Reduce or eliminate your meat and dairy consumption; The industry has no desire to change its practices or make them more transparent
2-Work with organizations trying to...
Animals used in agriculture have no legal protections against cruelty. At present, such behavior to a dog or cat would levy a fine or jail time. The legal system has long assumed that farmers would always act in the best interests of their animals.
When we industrialized agriculture over the...
