Bought the Chord Qutest. Love it. Hate the power supply.
My recollection is that the designer chose that particular wall wart based on sound, but on the Darko you tube review, an inexpensive upgraded power supply is recommended.  
ATC SCM19 V2 Recommendations.
I'd fill the stands with dry play sand.  It will provide a less resonant foundation, and less easy to tip.  
I feel bad for Generation X and The Millennial's
The reason young people, my kids included, still listen to the great music of the 60s and 70s ("classic rock", singer songwriters, Motown/soul, blues, folk rock, etc., is that nothing has come along to replace it.  Look what's most popular- dispos... 
Patricia Barber - Cafe Blue is an effects album
Patricia Barber is a wildly talented singer, pianist and jazz artist, and Cafe Blue is an early recording of mostly original songs.  Famous Blue Raincoat is a beautiful album of Leonard Cohen songs, sung by Jennifer Warnes, who has a stunning alto... 
Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Hearing Loss
Thanks very much to everyone who replied to my post-it did make me feel a little better! To mahler123, I'm sorry to hear that you're having so many serious health conditions at 50. I'm 65, and have all the usual ailments, but didn't feel old until... 
Record Storage Temperature
Thank you very much for your responses!  
Considering Towers in the $3000 range
My son has the prior generation of Monitor Audio Silver 500, which he loves, are beautiful, and are an amazing value.  The 7Gs are even more transparent according to Stereophile. I would definitely listen to these!   
Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Hearing Loss
Juan, thank you so much for your heartfelt reply (and wow, are you an excellent writer!).   I think I posted my story hoping someone would offer some consoling.  I'm hoping my hearing loss will be manageable; I'm hoping like yourself, I will figur... 
U2 live. Music realism
The conservative posters on this forum never fail to reveal their ignorance.  Please name a band since 1980 that's produced more astounding music, or compares as live performers.   
Hegel H590 integrated amp
I'm offended by this pointless post.  I thought this forum was to help inform others, but the poster is merely (over) stating his love affair with his amp, without any frame of reference or comparison.  I'd also point out that when the problems, c... 
what’s a song cover that you think is better than the original?
What's So Funny About Peace, Love and Understanding by Elvis Costello (written by Nick Lowe), and A Certain Girl by Warren Zevon (written by Allen Tousssaint, originally performed by the Ernie K-Doe, then The Yardbirds).  
what’s a song cover that you think is better than the original?
Oh, and My Way by Frank Sinatra- written by Paul Anka!  
what’s a song cover that you think is better than the original?
I've rarely read a post where I so strongly disagree with almost everyone!  The trend here seems to be a "prettier" version of songs, which completely lack the genuine quality of the original performer.  The outlier is All Along The Watchtower, wh... 
Michael Fremer leaves Analog Planet
I feel it would have been appropriate for MF to announce his departure on Analog Planet, rather than have the new guy announce his arrival, with no mention of MF.  
I have new speakers on the way. What to listen to first?
