Crazy crazy crazy
The meeting at the bar thing appeals to me. I don't know where all you guys live, but here in Texas I met with my football buddies every Sundays at the sports bar to watch our favorite NFL team. No masks, six of us, different age range, holding di... 
Why so many angry audiophiles?
Because they are too worried about sound and forget about the music. 
Does Age Matter?
It is stunning to me to see how many elders are giving up on vinyl because ofthe physicality required to operate it. I hope I will have the physicality and drive to keep spinning vinyl well past my young age of 66. I am not about to throw in the t... 
Does Age Matter?
Ultrasonic cleaning does wonders for background noise. All my 2,000 vinyl have been washed. It's part of the process and I actually love doing it. Every 9 albums I get go through the process, takes me about half an hour. Piece of cake and amazing ...

66 yrs young 90% vinyl10% CDStill young enough not to be bothered by the extra work to play vinyl. In fact I rather enjoy it, it keeps me in shape :) plus it sounds soooooo sweet. 
Perfect Speaker Placement - Put next to the back wall as much as possible.
@b_limo To clarify it is your ears that are supposed to be at 38% from the front wall or the back wall. Nothing to do with speaker placement. 
A deeper more holographic soundstage.
Nice to see today's discussions are somehow more focused on improving room acoustic treatments than equipment upgrades. We are getting somewhere. To the unaware, pay attention, it may cost you some up front but you will save a bundle in the long run.

The 38% rule from the front wall, I would never even attempt it in my 23ft long rectangular room. It somehow would make me miss enjoying two thirds of my beautiful room. However I find that the 38% rule from the back wall is the ultimate position ... 
I'm pretty excited about my new room i'm building
@ OPFor whatever it's worth, check out my house of stereo system. Also a stand alone room with similar dimension. You may found some info to your liking. Have fun with the process. 
What improvement came first?
@ Erik_SquiresCan not agree with you more that room acoustics are first and foremost paramount to great sound. The reason few people talk about its benefits in the industry is they won't be making any monies from it. Majorities of audiophile produ... 
VPI Classic Setup By Brian Walsh
To each his own, just stating my observations about this specific table.Merry Christmas to all! 
VPI Classic Setup By Brian Walsh
IMO,  whomever owns this table needs to be able to handle all the adjustments by themselves. Case in point, if you happen to touch the tonearm wiring, you will likely throw the azimuth out of whack. If you have to rely on others to do the job for ... 
VPI Classic Setup By Brian Walsh
I have had a Classic 1 with Kleos cart for seven years. It was very complicated to master the adjustments at first, but now it is just a breeze. That's why many people give up on it and VPI has moved on to non unipivot arms. I have zero desire to ... 
For the Audiophile with a taste for good design(looks)....a question.
I rather not get into personal references, but that would be the death of my audio pursuit. 
For the Audiophile with a taste for good design(looks)....a question.
I don't care about the looks of my equipment per say, since  I never really look at it as most of it sits by my side. But I do care greatly about the looks of the wall behind my speakers in my house of stereo  since that's what I always look at. H...
