What system can adequately reproduce the sounds of a tanker being hit by torpedo ?
I would just love to be able to say yes, but you've pulled up a little short.  But maybe you can offer a line of "Brilliant Beans" to compliment the pebbles.  Remember where you got the idea when you hit it big.

Geoff, OK. Now if you were working with or even talking with Hedy Lemarr you would have some serious interest for us, your humble readers. What a lady and story. 
What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?

Hi inna, kind of laughing at you calling out the submariner for whining, you were singing the blues to the world last week when your garden hose purist liquid cables started losing their mojo juice. 
What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?
^^^ The two sides will never meet.  Where some consider it a special person with a sense of adventure and curiosity to experiment with some of the more, "bizarre" tweaks, others just consider this the "freak side show" of audio.But above all, its ...

What’s your vote for the most ridiculous, overpriced, and useless tweak?

Best tube preamp ever
This is obscure, but has anyone compared the passive mode on the Schitt Freya to the Schitt passive Sys? I just ask as I am breaking in a pair of Museatex Meitner monobloc amps I just had modded and using the Sys until I buy a new preamp (perhaps ...

Class D is affordable and sounds as good or better the SS/Valve why buy anything else ?
