Tweaks - An Honest Discussion
There are a lot of great tweaks. There are also a lot of doubters. My advice is to try this one inexpensive tweak: Ayre's 'Irrational But Efficacious' System Enhancement Disc. If this doesn't cause a serious paradigm shift, then nothing will. 
Disappointing On
Have tried multiple times to appreciate McIntosh gear. Paired with Klipsch K-Horns bad, with B&Ws bad, with Martin Logans really bad. The only demo I have heard that I thought was half decent was McIntosh tube gear with Magnepans.Just telling ... 
Why Do Schumann Resonators Work?
Discussions are endless on these units, but one think is certain. If properly installed they make an amazing positive improvement to systems that already are functioning at a high level. One of the best tweaks ever.  
Free to Good Homes
Very nice gesture. Wish we had more generous and sincere audiophiles rather than those who offer only their 'half-witted' responses that we see so often. 
Mapleshade...where's the love?
I bought a handful of the Mapleshade CDs and not single one is worth listening to. There are a great many amazing CDs available (out there) which absolutely puts Mapleshade to shame. I have used several of there products such as brass spikes, heav... 
Dunlavy resurrection?
I'm probably one of the biggest fans ever of the Dunlavy speaker line up. I own almost every model that was produced. I've had to do some maintenance on some of the units, but for the most part they have given me years of nothing but listening ple... 
What’s really hurting the audio hobby?
I think that a lot of the enthusiastic audiophiles are getting a little older as I am and are pretty happy with the systems they have. Maybe try a few of the tweaks as they come along, but mostly enjoy the music. 
Happy 4th of July
Not ashamed to ask for God's blessings on our nation! 
Why No McIntosh Recommendations?
I have listened to numerous McIntosh products through the years. I've also had 'heart-to-heart' talks with McIntosh dealers. Bottom line is that McIntosh tube products tend to sound much better than their solid state counterparts. Overall, if a co... 
Good Product or Nonsense?
I have used Optrix and/or other products for years and have found that in most cases an improvement in audio/video performance can be predictably achieved. Getting the right combination of 'tweaks' for a given system takes some time and patience, ... 
To Sell or Keep?
Remember Net Present Value from Finance Class? Sell and keep moving forward. 
CD no more produced?
Best source for CD(s) and virtually all digital media can be found at most definitely agree that commercial CD(s) are much better than any streaming option that I've experienced, especially given all the very effectiv... 
Speakers under $5000 maintained a reputation for quality sound over the last 15 years. a fairly wide margin. 
I am a person who has tried a lot of tweaks over the years. Some didn't help or made things worse; and yet most have found a place as a permanent part of my system(s). I have a fair number of SACDs and they sound really good, but not necessarily b... 
Infinity RS1B ? Buy or runaway
I had the RS1-B(s) for a number of years. They were interesting with respect to their sonic and visual impact in a room. I used both solid state and/or tube electronics. I did some tweaking which made a positive difference. Since then I have had a...
