If Cables Are Not Tone Controls...
I cannot upgrade it because I am near top of the line cost ≠ sonic quality. Cable properties interact with the devices they connect.I can't count the number of times an upgrade wasn't with one piece of gear and was near nirvana with another.... 
If Cables Are Not Tone Controls...
 separate the normally dual speaker wire into individual ones and place them away from each other Ummm, maybe notCapacitance will drop, but Inductance will rise as will Impedance.Better bet is to buy well engineered cables that integrate well i...

Consider a kick drum on an open field where there are no reflections. The higher frequencies of the beater hitting the head arrive before the full amplitude of the head deflection, yet you still identify it as a kick.  You can see a kick waveform...

Any recording with a prominent Kick drum will reveal proper polarity. The kick is a poor arbiter. One might have a preference, but unless one knows the material first hand, it's just a preference. Since polarity can change from track to track ...

what you find acceptable electrical service would be considered of "third world" quality in many parts of the world The City of Los Angeles extracts $¼ BILLION annually from DWP. Hence ZERO maintenance. The pole in my yard was installed in 1962...

Where all the services are underground, there are vaults with transformers.In my current location we have small above ground transformers every few houses and a large vault with a larger transformer. It also got rather wet and shorted in our 101 i...

Thinking back, these are some of the problems that caused power problems:squirrels nearly chewed through the bare aluminum neutral. Apparently, they love it for sharpening their teeth.both a recording studio and a mastering lab had issues from und...

If lights are 'blinking' they are on the same circuit. Sockets and lamps should be wired on separate circuits. Likely there are other high current loads as well.I've been doing this a very long time. Including professional recording studios. 12ga ...

If one has to choose between getting a dedicated line or a good power conditioner, which one provides the biggest bang for the buck. First determine if you have a problem. The best answer maybe neither.

Delay is to achieve the same impulse arrival time at the listening position. 10ms is about 11.25 feet. Delays around 1ms are more common.An All-Pass Phase control does not affect all frequencies equally. It is used to get the best integration betw...

The purpose of a ground rod is to provide a low impedance path to earth in the event a power line is hit by lightning. All the rods in the area provide an earth mesh.The Earth Safety is to carry no current EXCEPT IN THE EVENT OF AN ELECTRICAL FAIL...
