Is soundstaging emblematic of reality?
Totally depends on the sort of music one is listening to. Certainly the soundstage of a amplified Hard Rock concert is not gonna be the same as the real thing. Nor the full symphony concert. But small group Jazz could easily be the same. So can Cl...

The way I look at experimenting is less worry at all the possible ways, Rather the places I would like to try, with things I am interested in. Yeah I did enough fails to no longer follow certain avenues (roller bearings) But then some things just ...

Nah, I go for the 'ex ham radio $1 a pop cones'... ANYTIME. All the claims of 'my exact same stuff is way better than your exact same stuff', because my exact same stuff is just BETTER' aside. ..   Sometime stuff is just stuff. Even if it has a NA...

Amplifier power supply voltage - moving between regions
For such a product eh 50Hz 60Hz makes no difference. The 230v in EU is also available in North America. Most North American homes have 117 and 230v BOTH. The 230 is just usually for air conditioning, stoves, appliances etc. So it might certainly b...

One thought about the 'hardness' of the ceramics... Like the way various wood helps, It does seem the density and hardness matters a lot. But just basic harness is not the entire story. Kind of like how Ebony creates a different sonic character th...

Back to exotic blocks of wood... I added a few more, and discovered.. yup, too much of a good thing, is, after all, too much of a good thing. HOWEVER! One interesting creative fact is I can go and change a few bits elsewhere previously penned, kni...

I wanted to try some springs.. I wanted those cone like springs. That one end is a large coil, and they narrow as they rise to a much smaller coil at the top. Sadly they cost a small fortune from the places I looked online with them, or they are w...

Yes the different size matters. On the electronics, the larger size adds more. warmth than the pen blank size. It did also on the speakers, but the result was just too much (for my needs). So back to the pen blank size.The types of wood I have tri...

I changed to Pen Blank size Cocobolo from the Knife Scale size under my Magnepan 20.7. the Knife Scale size (1" by 1.5" by 5" was making the sound too 'tubby'. A little too bloated.     In the time since my last post, I filed the sawing crud off 1...

The sites I listed have other basic larger exotic wood for sale. You might call them to see if anything is interesting to you. Also precut wood blanks called bowl blanks. They can be up to 12" by 12" and 3" or even 4" thick. If I had a table saw I...

I actually got the idea from MG. At least the idea of tuning. It just made sense to me about working with the vibrations, tuning them, instead of trying to just kill them.From MG. I did not follow his footpath I just found something that seemed to...
