Wison watt puppy
Wilson has used casters on their speakers for a number of years solely for the purpose of removing them from the packaging and setting them up for spiking. If you want casters that will screw into the designated locations under Wilson speakers (th... 
Directionality Explained
I believe that there are aspects of hearing that machines do not measure. 
Wilson Alexia 2
Diamond black Slight upcharge on Alexia 2 as color, but I love it. It pops. All of my Wilsons except my initial pair ( dark grey) have been black.  But this is a highly personal choice that only you can make cause you have to live with it. Only in... 
VAS (Steven Leung) cartridge repair/retipping service?
Steve is a gem in the industry. Peter is a great asset as well--and a poet. We are lucky to have them. 
Why don’t tube amps sound like tubes anymore?
In most circumstances at audio shows, I can tell when I walk into the room, sight unseen, if it is using tubes or solid state. There is still a difference in presentation though not nearly as much as, say, 20 years ago. 
Your Pick Between These Two...
I have heard Magico A3s and Joseph Audio Pulsars on a few occasions in a few different systems at audio shows. Magicos, to me, sound a touch antiseptic--not involving. The Pulsars were transparent, dynamic, colorful and truly wonderful speakers. I...

Audiophiles and nostalgia,
Hey Millercarbon.I have a 79 SC as well --Petrol Blue with black interior. It is my favorite of the half dozen 911s I have owned since then --all of which were a later vintage--none of which I still have.

Suggestions please!! --Need to replace vintage Audio Research VT 200 Tube Power Amp

Wilson Sabrinas, electronics and Subs

Whats on your turntable tonight?
nicks25A remarkably great sounding album, not from a transparency POV but from a "you're in a bathroom size recording studio with the band" feel. 
Magico vs the world
I have listened to numerous Magicos  from the year the company reached these shores to the current line from A to Q.  I admire the build quality which is extraordinary.  But I have not heard one model that sounded like I was in the presence of liv... 
John Prine, singer, songwriter, legend - Dead at 73 from COVID-19
We lose so many these days it seems. This one really hurts because he was such a class act inside and out. To me, he represented the musical embodiment of Polonius’ declaration: " brevity is the sole of wit". His writing was always infused with hu...
