First Watt J2 & speaker pairing ?
If you want this brand, I would switch speakers. But I heard the DQ10 clear back in college and they sound great. I think they were $500 at the time. Efficient speakers tend to be larger. I have a Pass XA25. A used one would be about 1000 more th... 
Vibration isolation or absorption?
I bought my speakers and set them up. The basement floor was not flat so the speaker could actually rock. They only came with furniture tips that are just driven into the wood.  I didn’t know much. The isolation topic was very common here and usua... 
Fuzzy playback
Hello @rockrider. As usual it was those RCA connections at the crossover. A new crossover is $750. I chose to fix this Rean RCA base, gold plated. $10 for a set of 6. While I have it out I am replacing the volume potentiometers. I wanted stepped a... 
Why do I need a switch?
I would get rid of as much noise and interference.  There are several other things that will give more improvement than a switch. Good cords, dedicated circuit, ethernet filtering, no wall warts in the circuit.  I would say these items would help...

Are you interested in the new generation of "old school" design loudspeakers?
A few years ago I contemplated buying some older Klipsch and putting new in parts. Then I learned the guy who sold the Klipsch parts also had his own speaker, the late Bob Crites.  They are wide but really nice sounding.    
More Bass
Another fun tool is a simple App on your phone.  Spectroid is a frequency measurement tool.  Take your phone and sit in your listening position.  You will see the bass response in relation to other frequencies.  make sure the recording is one that... 
More Bass
Walk around the room.  Does bass get better, worse or doesn't matter.  A continuous tone is helpful.  I  have 20 and 30 hz only.  Also, it will take a few days, many people play new speakers continuously for a few days.  
LOUDEST Concert and Tinnitus
Yes it was about 5000 people standing.  Some of his songs are pretty good "Ball and Biscuit" is a good one to sample.  Good recording too. I forgot one.  Police 1984 or so.  Bass rippled my belly nearly nauseating but good sound.  
LOUDEST Concert and Tinnitus
Wisconsin football stadium: not sure if it is folklore but students measured on the Richter scale stomping to a song Jack White.   1975 Disco.  Huge black speakers stuck my head in them. Wow!Big JBls or something. Setting off dynamite.  With ea...

Why do we stop listening to new music as we get older?
After 1980 huh, sorry Madonna, Celine, Maria, Whitney and others, you better start treating your voices.  
Is Imaging Worth Chasing?
I wouldn’t call it a chase. It just happens when you get enough things better. Front end electrical and digital/analog signal cleanup , spkr positioning, spkr isolation, room treatments. Subs properly integrated improve imaging and/or soundstage. ... 
Why do we stop listening to new music as we get older?
I have never stopped listening to new music. Beatles, Brian Eno, Led Zeppelin, Bowie, Kraftwerk, Weather Report. Were my first and second wave. At the time there were actually new inventions such as stereo recording, synthesizers, etc Now that st...
