Plummeting sperm counts, shrinking penises: toxic chemicals threaten humanity
I read an article several years ago that claimed the reason the FDA recommends so many servings of...
I could have sworn that we had this list going already, maybe it was another forum I don't remember.
Was it Random Rooms?
Anyway, in lieu of bookmarking my own computer with links to acoustic panels and other room acoustic treatments, I'm starting this thread.
One thread we already have of...
I guess that I should be upset, but the lower tier is all lit up like Christmas and stole my heart.
An art installation?
Finding something you both like can be challenging at times.
So let's start a list of movies that are date night friendly.
Try this one (see below) on Amazon Prime for instance. Satisfies Comedy and Sci-Fi requirements plus it is really good.
Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse...
Amazon's "Mozart in the Jungle" , is changing the way I listen to classical music when it comes on the radio.
Nice show to watch with the wife before we go to bed.
No violence and head chopping.
I checked all 18 pages of this part of the forum and cannot believe nobody has posted about...
I drove my wife to the eye doctor today, we were very early so looking to burn up some time I asked if it was okay with her if I spent 10 minutes at Almas HiFi in Royal Oak, she said yes but stayed in the car.
Lone person running the store named Paul seemed surprised that I didn't know they...
own a tube preamp that I bought used in late 1990's.
Have replaced four E88cc (6922) tubes about every 8-years, never replaced the four PC900's in the med/low phono section (that I can recall).
The replacement tubes have been two in the main line section, and two in the phono hi-gain section...
Room dimensions are measured from the surface of a wall, floor and ceiling.
However under certain conditions and certain frequencies the room dimensions may seem to be different or react different - as in different lengths.
For Instance in my walk-out basement listening room I have on...
I found a thread with many links to papers on the topic, thought you all might enjoy if bored one day.
I first found the link above in yet another forum that is proving to be quite interesting all on it's own...
I have not measured it, but suspect Grado wood bodied cartridges are just over 1mm too tall to get proper VTA on the kind of tonearms that come with a table and have no VTA adjustment.
What I mean is my old Dual always had my Grado Sonata almost but not quite parallel to the record, sort of...
I plan on cleaning all of my records with No. 6 enzyme and replace the sleeves of anything I clean.
However that leaves the original cardboard covers.
At random I picked out an LP that I do not know how I got, I never bought it. Carole King's debut album "Writer", it looked to be in great...
I have a linear tonearm on my Pioneer PL-L1000 which is supposed to come with a small and large counterweight.
I only have the large heavy weight.
The first cartridge I tried was only 1-gram above minimum weight and had the large counterweight squeezing the base. Not to my liking.
I was going a bit nutty trying to trace the origins of a rumble problem that came out of nowhere.
The rumble coming out of the subwoofer only happened on two different albums, one side of each LP only, and the first song only.
I switched out my belt drive table with a spare direct drive table...
Dispersion Horizontal: 30 Degrees............what exactly does that mean?
Polar radiation pattern lobes on the M/L hybrids at let's say 400Hz to 500Hz are 3D pear or strawberry shaped...
Last week I thought that I would be in a position of replacing my 25 foot run of Nordost Blue Heaven speaker wire with a 6 foot run of Blue Jeans or equal.
Any guesses of how that would have played out?
Speakers: Martin Logan - Aerius
Amp: Rotel 100 watt
Small listening room.
At least it has a ribbon tweeter, and they are cutting edge looking.
Similar path as JansZen when going to the box?
I get this same feeling when a tube amp manufacturer starts introducing solid state models. :oops:
I'm still making changes but have it sort of figured out (Back in the Saddle Again - Kind of).
Moved after 27 years into a little house on the river (built 1947) with a finished walk-out basement, concrete floor at last.
After watching several Dennis Foley (Acoustic Fields) and many other...
After almost 5 years of not playing my stereo regularly I hooked my stereo back up yesterday - it was like kissing an old girlfriend.
Long story, but I decided to get into physical shape about 10 years ago.
4 years of mostly watching what I eat and increasing activity including experimenting...
I once made an audio rack out of salvaged maple butcher block for shelves and small aluminum I-beams vertical posts. Problem is the old maple started to split because of past improper storage.
I need to rebuild the rack with new wood or use a different material.
I was thinking of trying...
This review is shy on superlatives, but runs down the convenience factor for those living with multi-media formats.
McIntosh MCD600 SACD/CD Player | Review
My first time reading this person's reviews.
Closed back in November 2019.
Needle Doctor closes up shop
I checked and www.needledoctor.com is not working for me today.
The Needle Doctor is out: Turntable specialist Jerry Raskin shutters his 40-year-old business...
This goes against everything I've ever experienced, but here it is.
Does it make any sense to you?
Anything is possible in theory, but then you have to prove it with experiments, right?
I happened to stumble upon an image of JBL L212's on the Internet and was smitten with them.
Some owner reviews in link below are very flattering to say the least.
The Search For A Simple Solution With Paper Thin Walls
Having lived in a plaster and wood lath walled house for the past 27 years that was built in the early 1900's I forgot how terrible typical stud walls with drywall are - acoustically speaking that is.
Our new house (built in 1947) had the...
Has anyone here heard or built a Blomley amplifier?
Author of article describes how his mom sat down and listened without having the urge to talk over it. Quite the boast.

We are all sick in the head - haha.
First found definition via the article below.
In another thread I looked up a manufacture someone mentioned and this is the first image that came up.
I've been working all day and I'm a bit fatigued so I feel like I have rocks in my head.
What's with the rocks in the picture though?
Is this an active "Art" exhibit, or is there a new...
The dang CD drawer has a mind of it's own, it keeps pulling in as I go to place a CD on the tray.
I had this problem fixed twice by the local shop over the years but it never seems to last long.
MCD-7009, not really going to toss it, but want to get it fixed and gone over properly once my move...
