I thought the same thing Peter. Sounded like the water was coming from top of the wall running down the siding.
So glad to hear it was running down the side of the house at the landscaping.
I spent most of my life remodeling or restoring many historic buildings. Renovations and additions to...
Not offended and not surprised.
I have an old Radio Shack meter laying around somewhere. I have really never been interested in the db level but I found the thread fascinating so I checked with something I didn't need to get up out of my listening chair. :-)
I know I don't listen very loud as...
I checked my normal listening level and it ran 65-75db. I checked to see what 85-90 db was and for me is was painful and no longer relaxing.
That said there is no doubt at the right moment I had possibly gone to the 85-90 bd for a very short period.
I am unable to attend many of the local...
I'm with you Gordon.
I had used PayPal for years. Last year I sold a piece of electronics to someone in California. He paid via PayPal that I had never had a problem with previously.
PayPal immediately froze my account saying the $8,000 transaction was larger than any I had recently had. They...
Still solidly in CLX camp.
Been traveling and didn't see resent posts. Internet is very sketchy.
As far as replacement panels. I'm 68 now with CLX being 3 years old. Short of a catastrophe I would think the panels will out live further deterioration of my hearing.
Given that, I would replace...
I don't see myself spending the $'s that they would require though, I have always been curious how Dartzeels would sound on CLX's.
I too like what tubes do with midrange especially on the CLX.
Thanks for the response and information BD
You received a response you didn't care for due to your down grade of others audio choices.
Please don't be offended but how does your disability make the Mac turntable a better product for you?
Yes, I am a happy owner of CLX's
I never go into my listening room with the intention of falling asleep. I often drift off into the music and it just happens. That was one of the main reasons I wanted a head rest that didn't interfere with the music. At least when I'm awake.
For me you are spending a substantial amount of money on audio equipment to let it be in 2nd position.
If the "L" is 12' wide the pool table would fit there comfortable. You MAY have an issue if you need to shoot directly side to side on the table with the que ball stuck to the rail. Not...
Just for FYI. This is a pic of the 6th and latest version of the DC Blocker he built for me. Today he changed a small paper & oil cap for the large silver Teflon cap in the upper right corner of the box.
I have not listened to it in my system yet but in his it further opened up the lower mid...
This is a chair I rebuilt the back to not have the head rest full width. I also built the foot stool to match the chair.
The chair is by Vanguard and is called the Woodley Recliner. There are more pics on my members page. It is entitled "My Happy Place"
I spoke with him briefly today and he said that the main change was using 80 volt caps rather than the 35 volt caps he started with. He spoke about micro spikes that would be larger than the 35 volt caps could deal with.
I agree with you about the symptoms and the cure. At this time it is only...
I have almost no technical clue of how solar power systems are put together. If what I am saying doesn't make scene it is just my interpretation of what my audio friend that is an EE.says, not necessarily reality. He rebuilds every piece of equipment that comes into his home.
His home is...
I'm not sure I would go as far as to say that cable risers don't do anything for anyone. It's possible mine don't work well enough or I can't hear it.
The speaker cables are DIY. I have used Shunyata Andromeda speaker cables for 10+ years. My EE friend gave me a pair he made to try and the...
Ron, I just eyeball them and drill the hole for the screw for the vertical. A measurement and pencil mark would be easy if one is not comfortable with guessing.
The advantage of this design is you can make different heights to run one cable under another.
Relating to the Furutech NCF Boosters...
I was killing time in my shop this last weekend while repairing a rocker for my grand nephew. In between waiting for glue to dry on the rocker I decided to finish make cable lifters I started a while ago.
They are very simple. Scraps of mahogany and a screw to hold the base to the vertical...
I am using the Stream -IF with my MPS-5. I upsample to DSD x 4 using Room on a i9 Sonic Transporter. It works flawlessly and the difference between X2 to X4 is huge in my system.
I realize this was not your question but just information. My understanding is USB XIII is as Steve said.
I think it would be easier for younger hands and back.
Ibuprofen and a couple of glasses of wine took care of my stiffness.
The other concern I had was the force of twisting the receptacles loosen the wires and I would need to re-check them anyway.
