theres a reason so many other audio discussion sites have flourished.  I don’t even check or post much here anymore, which is a shame.  Would do the same if posting gear for sale.  What’s the George Harrison album ?  all good things must pass.   
Speakers for super sensitive ears?
My 2 cents is that the recordings (or more specifically the mics) are often what’s responsible for less than realistic sound. Mic technology hasn’t changed much in decades. While i have not been to the top audio shows like Rocky Mountain, the ones... 
Why HiFi manufacturers don't make active crossovers anymore?
I think the ideal way to do active would be using the built in DSP and crossover function built into server software like JRiver.It would require multiple or multi channel DAC, but it seems the least destructive method since no additional DA or AD... 
Has anyone finally decided to sell their Turntable and Vinyl collection?
I have been toying with the idea of selling my 2500 LP collection to help fund a comedy feature film I’m doing. I don’t play LPs as much as the digital front end, (PS Audio DS) but when I do I feel I’d regret selling the collection. There is just ... 
Any place in NYC to have LP ultrasonic cleaned? Will it help?
Paul, I have a powerful home steam unit for clothes (not handheld). Any suggestions for using it without damaging the LP? I’d still love to try ultrasonic if anyone knows of a place in NYC area .   
MOBILE FIDELITY ONE STEP VINYL
I have the 2 bill evans one step pressings, bridge over troubled water and haven’t opened the Blood on the tracks yet.If you have a significant investment in a vinyl rig I think the 1 step is definitely worth it, if you like the particular title. ...

Anyone with open reel deck in NYC area want to hear my master tapes?

Blood On The Tracks MoFi UD1S
Mine is here sitting in a box ..... have to open to listen.  I liked the other 1 step pressings I have - the 2 bill evans and Bridge over troubled water .   
The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
I believe the purpose of this post is not to enlighten or start a discussion point meant to illuminate, but is essentially a troll post claiming we are all being scammed.  Being an audiophile (or an audio designer) is about caring.  It’s about a d... 
KEF blades 2 or Dynaudio C4?
I was so excited to hear the blades when first released, then the blade 2.   I heard them at one of the audio shows, and on several occasions.   Being a fan of concentric drivers, and looking at the cabinet design, I thought they would have been i... 
Is It Possible?
Great thread that brought back many memories of when I used to own Crosby modded  quad 63's.    I did love those speakers but got sick of replacing panels.Many years later I have the pleasure of owning TAD CR1'S.   It was remarkable that they seem... 
New TEO Audio ICs, who has them?
Jumping in on this thread a little late . What does the Schroeder method actually do? Lower resistance? I use an all balanced system so I’m intrigued that it works balanced as well. However not to power amps ? Also has anyone just tried soldering ... 
power cables' effect on power conditioner?
I found mention of that steel shielded ac cable on another audio site but no one had actually used it.  They also have already aluminum cased version.  Would that be better?In My application the cable will be in wall for for A foot or two from the... 
power cables' effect on power conditioner?
I am planning on running a dedicated 10 Guage steel shielded power cable from my breaker box to feed my niagara 7000.   This cable claims to deal with harmonics - if I can find some others take 190 feet  since  they only sell 250 reels http://www....
