Solar-powered battery running my system
I'd love to hear a your impressions  in 6 months or so. And as has been pointed out, your solar power is no cleaner than the inverter makes it. Plus you are off the grid and so you won't have the next door neighbors grunge in your electricity as l... 
DAC diminishing returns
With any luck the new Dac may push the rest of the system to it’s limits. Then you realize how much really like the upgrade. but soon ya just want more. Then you upgrade, buy a sub, cables then upgrade xyz. So you tell me. Does the significantly... 
What cable companies make the best cables and sell them directly?
Audio Envy, Morrow Audio are two that I've been interested along with the Silversmith. They  have good reputations signal cable too. Anyone remember Homegrown Cables or Pure Note?  
Subwoofer with Floorstanding Speakers?
Bass is the backbone upon which the rest of the music rides on. Up until the mid 80’s subs weren’t needed. Then the Mfgs etc started pushing midrange because it has the majority of the music.R&Rollers weren’t considered in this because classic... 
To Blind Test, or Not To Blind Test, That Is The Question
Blind testing isn’t so much about the differences in the equipment as much as it is a test about the listener.  Moreover, just because a listener is able to perceive a difference between Product A and Product B, you can only talk about the listen...

Integrated amps for lean speakers
@hheedah  Rel recommends putting sub in the corner and slowly pulling it out to find its best position. It will give you more bass in the corner. But as I said, with the Rel Storm 3 I could not get enough bass and I had it turned to max. But ever... 
Integrated amps for lean speakers
@erik_squires @hilde45  As I said earlier, the T5  sub is not big enough. I have a room the same size  which my floorstanders & a Rel Storm 3 with a little more power and 10 in. woofer  would not output enough bass. The T5 has 125 watts with ... 
Integrated amps for lean speakers
Those speakers have a 6.5 inch bass/midrange driver which means the speaker is not designed to do bass. Freq response is 33hz to 22khz. Instead of a new integrated you need a bigger  subwoofer which will then give you the backbone to support the m...

HT & Stereo System Fuel Shortage Coming According to Grid Operators
You are the one who made it political in your first rant. The article mentioned no politicians, etc. It addressed green energy and if we are rushing into it before the grid is ready? Every post you have made is meant to insult and or inflame passi...
