Has anyone been banned from Steve Hoffman Forums?
The┬áSteve Hoffman Forums are the best place on the internet to find out about, and obsess over, the different masterings of music released before the 90's.Some classic albums have a wildy different sound depending on which region of the world they... 
One of the best HDMI cable?
I have been through a dozen high end HDMI cables, purely for Videophile useage, not audio. Most made no difference. Some expensive cables were worse than stock (Chord HDMI Active, i'm looking at you).But the best was the Mapleshade Vivlink 2 with ... 
C7 power cable for Blu-ray player?
I used to obsess about C7 power cables because the choice is not that large. I tried Furutech G-320, Audioquest NRG 1.5, Nordost Purple Flare plus a quite a few home brew designs.Out of all my testing, I thought the Nordost Purple Flare was the be... 
EVS modded Oppo 95
I have never purchased a product from EVS. But Ric is very open with his mods and explains them on his website. I copied 2 of his ideas and they worked very well.One was using the Audiomagic Pulse Gen field generator in the Oppo player. This impro... 
Wadia 321 DAC, anyone have any experience with it?
I have to say the casework on that DAC is spectacular for the price it sells. The inside looks pretty sparse.... 
Question about High Fidelity Cables by. R. Schultz
They are screw in, so you can swap from banana to spade if you need to. 
Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
Sabai, I have read all those reviews previously.You are taking one or two lines out of context. You need to read an entire review to get a sense of whether a reviewer REALLY thinks a product is 'thar best evar' or whether they are going through th... 
Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
When the DS DAC came along I just looked at all the reviews in general and barely any of them declared the DS to be a game changer, or the best DAC they has ever heard. They only declared it to be 'good' which in the audio review industry means 'n... 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
Rlawry, I would highly recommend the CT-1E for the phono cable. The CT-1E was initially designed as a turntable phono cable in the first place. It is a big advance in realism over the standard CT-1. 
EVS modified Oppo 105D
Yes his mod pictures look like a dogs breakfast. But I guess it's the performance that counts.I think his issue is he uses copper wire sheathed in cotton as the connecting links. So it does not look very clean. 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
If you go back to the beginning, you will find at least 30 or more people on this thread who claim to be HFC owners saying these cables are game changing.So even if a few of them are plants, this thread has more actual user reports than almost any... 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
Sabai, try removing the magnets that surround your cables and system. You will find there is a veil and constriction that has been lifted from the sound.Years ago I used rare earth magnets in various patterns to surround the connectors of a power ...

I have to take that last comment back. I misread it, sorry Jmcgrogan2, its 2 am here.Mods delete!! Do we even have mods on Audiogon? 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
"Even you Agithos have shown previous interest in other things audio besides HFC, like all regular audiophiles do."Absolute rubbish Jmcgrogan2. As anyone who bothers to look at my post history can attest. I have commented on everything, and on man... 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
Accusing Ddraudt of being a shill or plant shows a lack of integrity of those making the claims. For sure he is over the top and wildly enthusiastic, but I have seen dozens of genuine customers over the years who do this about various product line...
