Audio Science Reviews - Should I Trust Them?
@thyname Let's get real.  I don't buy stuff on others suggestions any more than you do.  I started with a simple question and it's turned into three pages of nonsense.  I hate to say it but this seems to be the case with much of this forum. @jerr... 
Audio Science Reviews - Should I Trust Them?
@thyname My very first statement was that I don't have a deep understanding on how a lot of the magic happens within equipment.  I've never bought any PS Audio equipment but I've enjoyed Paul's little internet videos and have thought them to be a ... 
Audio Science Reviews - Should I Trust Them?
@laoman Yes, and that's all well and good, but it's just one more posting that is not taking my question head on and providing an answer.  No offence please, I understand there are all kinds of issues aound equipment testing.  And I'm not trying t... 
Audio Science Reviews - Should I Trust Them?
@kuribo You have hit the nail on the head.  I am asking a simple question about a specific piece of equipment.  The Powerplant.  Either ASR is doing something very wrong, or this very expensive piece of audiophile equipment is making people who bu... 
Audio Science Reviews - Should I Trust Them?
Lots of interesting comments, and just a little of the usual back and forth personal attacks that seem to pop up on every thread that garners more than +/- 20 responses. For the most part, we clearly fall into two main groups.  The “only my ears ... 
Audio Science Reviews - Should I Trust Them?
You're missing the point.  Of course I trust my ears.  I'm not actually looking to buy, I'm looking at what is offered as audiophile equipment.   My question is how do I reconcile the difference between what a vendor claims thier product does and ... 
I've been selling heavier gear for lighter gear
Stop the insanity.  65 is the new 40.  They way half of us are talking I'm surprised we haven't started a thread about the best way to get out of a recliner.  🤣  
Only two tracks to test your system, forever!
Miles Davis In A Silent Way, side one (single track).    
I've been selling heavier gear for lighter gear
Looks like you must over 65 to post on this thread, so I make the cut.  I seem to be going in the opposite direction from the OP.  Every piece of equipment I have purchased in the past several years has been increasing in weight.  I’ve never made ... 
The Bold. The Outrageous. The Projects You've Done. And, the One's You Shouldn't Have.
Thanks.  I can wire a house, but I can't build an amp.  I get lost in all the teck jargon thrown around in a lot of posts.  Luckily, my ears don't care.  😁  
Do Costly XLR Cables Make A Difference?
I find it interesting how often we equate the sound quality to the price we paid.  I have interconnects made by Morrow Cables and my system sounds great.  I only buy from Morrow during their 60% off sale, which happens to be going on right now.  A... 
The Bold. The Outrageous. The Projects You've Done. And, the One's You Shouldn't Have.
@waytoomuchstuff  Hey John. Love the speakers.  You didn't limit this to stereo stuff so I'll go in a different direction.  From a couple years ago.  I'll just give you the start and the finish.  Did this without any help.  Not sure I would to do ... 
Liquid Stylus Cleaners
+1 For the gel pad cleaner.    
Digital is far better than vinyl
The OP forgot to mention he was playing old LP's he bought at a garage sale for 5 cents each.  Now the story is complete. 🤣  
Audiolab 6000CDT
I've owned the 6000 CDT and doubt you could find a better dedicated transport for the same cost.  Is it as good as other products mentioned at higher prices?  Probably not, but that's not the question.  Could you buy a better unit at the same pric...
