Solar/cellular shades -acoustical treatment
Joe, I've come across both in various installations, neither one of them offers any acoustical properties worth talking about. I wouldn't spend money changing from one to the other. Treating large glass surfaces effectively is very tough, there ar...

SP10mk2: OMA Graphite plinth vs.Dobbins plinth
Chakster, the plinth will have a direct effect on the sound but not knowing anything about your Taiwanese base you might be trading in the best one for the looks of another! IME the best SP10 base was the Obsidian one built by Technics, the rest a...

What makes a better phono cable ?
Al, (Almarg), I recognize bs that's why I called him (Syntax) on it and of course he doesn't have a reply. I know about measuring impedance, conductivity, resistance, etc. but never heard of a way to measure transfer of information in this way spe... 
What makes a better phono cable ?
Syntax, where did you get this from? Its nonsense."Silver wire (silver can carry 6% more information than copper and 16% more than gold)" Aside from all the variables, what kind of instrument was used to measure transfer of information? david 
What makes a better phono cable ?
