A video I predict you will be very glad to have watched (multiple times if necessary).
bdp24 A political agenda? What agenda is that? I see it more as a matter of ... Perhaps you don’t recognize the political agenda because it’s your political agenda. And that’s why you posted the video, going so far as to state it should b... 
Lend me your ears...
ott I live in an area where it isn't possible to audition ... I'd like to do this for around $15k ... I also live in an underserved area. But when spending that kind of money, I get in my car and take a ride for an in-person audition. The... 
Brand New Vinyl Static and Pops
lewm ... the laugh is on me. Staticmaster not Dynagroove. I can’t even imagine how I came up with that name ... Perhaps an inner cranial static discharge. It could happen. ... if you have one don’t eat it. Further reading suggests poloni... 
Brand New Vinyl Static and Pops
lewm Has anyone got a Dynagroove brush? Hmmm, Dynagroove was an RCA "innovation," no? There’s a strip of polonium built in near the fibers that emits both positive and negative ions. You use it as a brush like the Audioquest brush. They were... 
Were you an audiophile in the 1980s and 1990s?
No discussion about the most influential audio writers and reviewers would be complete without mentioning Bert Whyte. He made some of the earliest commercial stereo recordings, releasing them on tape (through Everest) even before there was the ste... 
Brand New Vinyl Static and Pops
jjbeason14 Could it be because I was spinning old dirty vinyl which made the platter dirty/dusty? Yes. And has @flemke noted, a new LP isn't necessarily clean.

Passion, or ..... Precision?

What are some good things to do when going to an audition
mihorn Many hi-end audio videos in YT recorded by CP sound great ... They can be a lot of fun and I sometimes enjoy them on my little computer speaker system. But YouTube sound on a real system is like listening to Spotify - it's lossy com... 
My Impossible hum issue.
Is this a new problem, or did this setup previously work ok? What phono cartridge are you using? Can you hear the hum when the music is playing?  
What are some good things to do when going to an audition
mihorn Record (audio only or video) your audio sound with your smart phone. And record the auditioned audio sound with the same phone. Compare 2 recorded sounds few times. There’s not much point to an in-person audition if you’re basing yo... 
Fee for home audition
I've never paid a fee for a home audition. I tend to have a relationship with the few dealers I use, and that may make a difference.  
Warming up equipment
It's always best to power up your preamp first. That way, there's no way your amplifier can pass any of its turn-on transients on to your speakers.  
New Class D amplifiers
kuribo ... you are another example of someone who can't deal with an opinion contrary to your own. Feel free to ignore that which causes you grief. Ahhh, the classic ad hominem, the laziest of all logical fallacies.
