Do I really need an " Audio Grade Network Switch "?
I only wish that people who have nothing but theoretical postulates to reiterate would exercise some restraint. Dear Mr. Grunge.... amen I have absolutely no interest in hearing from the engineering crowd about why it can’t possibly work. I h... 
Do I really need an " Audio Grade Network Switch "?
anybody care to go back and see how many times this has been discussed on this and many other forums with the exact same results? Next time somebody wants to discuss this, please do just a tiny bit of research and see that it has been discussed ad... 
Guess How Big My Speakers Are
@herman but it is, and I’ve measured it. It’s not "real." It’s not the capability of the speaker so much as the resonance of the room.   I’ll try one more time and then leave you to it. I don’t care how much your room is adding to it, it is im... 
Guess How Big My Speakers Are
it is impossible that you are actually getting as much output at 20Hz as you are in the midband. @herman In an anechoic room you’d be correct. The room however bedevils those expectations, and that’s the point of the posting.  I'm going to sti...

Not Sure If This Is OK Here, But Here Goes
  i've always wondered about transactions using paypal f@f. why do they let you do that-they make no money! Friends and Family is intended for what it says. If you use it for buying/selling things then you are violating the terms you agreed to...

new Allison Krause & Robert Plant Pressing seems noisy
@herman , The record is noisy because of the conditions it was subject to during it’s manfacture. All the records pressin that run were subject to the exact same conditions. If the stamper was bad, all the records that come off that stamper (1000... 
new Allison Krause & Robert Plant Pressing seems noisy
Buying 300 other records says nothing about this one. do you even take the time to think about what others have posted or just go spouting off with your profound wisdom? I opened with "I can’t speak to this particular record" and you come back ... 
new Allison Krause & Robert Plant Pressing seems noisy
No, millercarbon is correct, they will all be like this.   How do you know that? I can't speak to this particular record yet, I will have it soon, , but I've purchased at least 300 new records in the past year or so and except for a few have ... 
Horn speakers are really bright?
@herman, impressive horn system. What is your crossover point to from big bass horn to the next?  It's a passive XO I take it from seeing just one amp. I should put that this in the description, The mid horn rolls off naturally about 200-2Khz. ... 
Horn speakers are really bright?
Herman, Isn't the sound affected by the large objects sitting in the bass horns?   well, I suppose it has to have some effect, and I haven't done a lot of experimenting , but it sounds excellent as is so no desire to so... until now since you... 
Horn speakers are really bright?
horns can be bright, any type of speaker can be bright if not properly impemented. The example of Khorns with a Crown DC300A is a perfect example of how NOT to implement them.  The idea that horns are always bright as some have opined is ridiculo...

The Most Cost Effective Tweak
Speaker placement is important, very important, but getting it down to a fraction of an inch is a wasted effort.Went through this same crap with this joker name of Ron at work. Miller you are so full of it, etc etc. Party one time he decides to ...
