Repairing older amps
I like CJ support. They fix all their stuff. I had a crackle in one channel of an MF-2500 in 2006. They quoted $84 parts/labor for the repair (bad cap) I got a price quote at the same time to upgrade it to a 2500A and they said they would waive th...

ICs with great natural sounding highs?
Anticables and other non-shielded IC designs sound best to my ears in the HF. ET

Viridian I'm always amused by your posts in this thread. ET 
wireless connection to portable speakers or phones
