Roger Waters Live Last Night in Glendale,AZ
@waytoomuchstuff  "The Exodus of Authenticity." Nice expression. It does seem as if everyone's got an angle these days, but someone delivering a pizza is not the same as someone  recording a rock album or playing a concert. Nor was it the same ... 
HOW TO CHOOSE A SPEAKER CABLE?
High purity oxygen free copper cable is surprisingly affordable when compared to some of the so called audiophile cables routinely advertised in the audio press. In fact you can even buy it on places such as Amazon. As you say, whether it brings... 
Roger Waters Live Last Night in Glendale,AZ
@noromance "Roger has always been political. If you didn’t go for the whole package, you’re not understanding him."   Completely agree.   @bigtwin Otherwise keep this in mind. The bums in the seats that paid for the tickets, represent the ... 
A perfect song? What are your choices?
When it comes to perfection, well here's another one by Donovan that gets as close as anything I've ever heard.      
What became of Mahgister?
By now I would hope that most of us have realised that there was never any such thing as a Covid vaccine?   Some folks here here in the UK are now being encouraged into taking their 4th and 5th experimental shots. Apparently with more to follow ... 
A perfect song? What are your choices?
Could this be the most underrated song of the 1960s?      
Record collecting versus hoarding
At what point does "collecting" records become hoarding?   A very good question that could apply to a lot of other things too. When you're young you don't see any horizon on life's journey and the voyage seems endless. Later on, things change ...

Bookshelf speakers that renders 3D soundstage
I haven't heard any true bookshelf speakers that could do a 3D soundstage. As for any that go down to 45 Hz (-3dB), well, that's another huge ask for under $2k. Your best bet might be to check the overachieving Q Acoustics 3030i (46Hz (-3dB). h... 
What was the last CD you bought (Name, and year issued)?
Rough and Rowdy Ways, Bob Dylan 2020. I rarely see anything worth buying nowadays. One of my friends has Amazon Music and we check out the latest releases there via his iFi Zen streamer. Of course, if Apple were to ever release a once and for a... 
Listening chair height?
It does, although with some speakers that have good vertical dispersion characteristics the exact height won’t be so important. This is why dispersion matters. Not everyone wants a sweet spot that's limited to a few centimetres either way. Thank... 
Turntables
@secretguy  On the list of things that ACTUALLY affect sound, the turntable is right down there with water pressure in your shower.   That's too clever for me, I completely missed the irony. You were being ironic, weren't you?  
different people may hear the same sound differently...
Whether we hear differently enough for it to make any significant difference is besides the point.   Audio equipment has only one task to perform, and that is to reproduce the signal that it's being fed as accurately as possible. At least as ac... 
Herbie’s Spike Decoupling Gliders: my…experience
@nyev Okay naysayer trollies - let’s go, who’s first? Lol….   Not me! I believe that isolation works, but apart from loudspeakers and turntables with all of their inevitable panel/stand interface resonances, I can’t see why it would work with... 
My take on subjective vs. objective
@cdc 'Research proved that in a live musical environment, approximately 30% of what we hear is direct sound while 70% is reflected from walls, ceilings and floors and only reaches our ears a few milliseconds after the direct sound. The human br...
