    Certainly not what I'd consider superior-engineered recordings but still fun when volume is cranked.

    Thanks, Chet. Much appreciated.

    Post your female vocal videos

    Sure. But as you probably know, there's the philosophical side as well as the physical side to building a system and when it comes to performance the philosophical side far outweighs the physical. IOW, even just an unbox, plug'n play system is a philosophy, right? So if I just shared with you...

    Well, yes and no. What I hear from your Youtube videos easily surpasses numerous other videos but some of us much prefer listening to what's in the recording. Whereas, you're really only offering us a "pick your poison" option. From that perspective, yes, I enjoy your poison more than the...

    I don’t mind, Peter. Let’s see…. Well, both of Bonzo’s videos had sound coming out of both channels and both channels were fairly balanced so I call these two videos a big win already. :) But seriously, I thought the 1st video #263 was reasonably pleasant and musical. Especially when...

    Sure, Peter. Any particular reason why these two recordings? Why don't you share your thoughts on them and then I'll do likewise?

    Radically different sound comparisons, fer sure. One sounds rather dead while the other sounds rather alive. I much prefer your system’s sound for pure enjoyment. However, if accuracy is the purpose of compiling a high-end system to listen to recordings, then both system fall perhaps equally...

    SPACE: THE FINAL FRONTIER

    It wasn't just a lie. It was fraud through and through and not just Stuart fulfilling his childhood dream, but everybody associated with MQA and its promotion inclduing a couple of record labels and of course a couple of wholesale sell-out editors-in-chief. And from what I hear the fraudulent...

    SPACE: THE FINAL FRONTIER

    I appreciate that the error of opinion ought be tolerated to one degree or another. But we also need to bear in mind that errors of opinions can often times be costly, devastating, and even deadly. Especially when we take into consideration the potential of one's error and not just the...

    SPACE: THE FINAL FRONTIER

    So MQA had the expertise to develop the end-all beat-all of audio formats yet they could not discern that MQA was not lossless - well... until years later after they got caught with their pants down? How about their claim that, regardless of the listening equipment or caliber thereof, for the...

    Trying to identify BW speakers.

    No. The first image you provided reminded me of their Matrix series from the 80's so I googled it and found an image seamingly quite similar to your first image. If it turns out to be smaller bookshelf types my apologies. But this link below is what led to my response to you...

    Subwoofer placement

    Join the club as I imagine it's a very large membership. :) But you should be able to achieve what you're looking for. Sure it is. Well, at least it's as much there as for the other frequencies. Exactly. But again this is true for every last one of us. I've heard nothing but good things...

    Trying to identify BW speakers.

    My hunch is, it's a B&W Matrix2 Series2 speaker. I think these were from the late 80's???

    Dunno. I was thinking perhaps it was just a strawman argument when I read that.

    SPACE: THE FINAL FRONTIER

    You’re quite welcome, Karen. However, I’m confused as I was responding to your questions as to why PRAT can be more easily detected / achieved by smartphones and computer than with many a high-end system and you seemed to entirely ignore perhaps the only sufficient response you may get on this...

    Advanced Cabinet Materials Versus Wood

    Perhaps, but I doubt it matters much. Well, a set of speaker drivers mounted to a concrete box would certainly have a more "stable" sound than if mounted to a cardboard box. And of couse there's always the psychological comfort knowing that a speaker is made with a superior material...

    State of the industry - Roy Gregory Editorial

    Here we are all over the map – as usual. It seems very few can even agree on the current state of the industry. With so many varying opinions and deviations, I’m compelled to offer my own. I think the current state of the industry can be best summarized by two popular catchphrases: Critical...
