I think some cables are just a little too expensive.
One thing most audio people fail to realize or value is that cables should maximize or almost ’perfect’ - all of the components in a system. One analogy is that non-audio people just don’t "get it" (the beauty and satisfaction most of us enjoy wit...

Sounds good Mr. Salami. :)I recently bought a closeout pair of EP 4.4s with neo tweeter(?) and asked Danny Richie to design a better crossover and upgrade the crossover (parts) too. I just need to block out a day to go pick them up or have him shi...

Musical Fidelity Trivista 300
My Tri-Vista input selector dial IS a little ’sensitive’, ie. especially wants to ’dance’ a little when first powering up. But it stays on the selection during use. I really enjoy the sound though, especially after finding some tweaks - upgraded f... 
I think some cables are just a little too expensive.
After 40 years in this hobby, I have bought and retired probably 50 pairs of speaker cables. I think most of us have the "used cable" box or drawer. I will say that there is some logic to the phrase "pay once and cry once". As long as the "pay onc... 
Why Crazy Prices paid for Pioneer 100 JBL L100 AR1 AR3 AR3A

Small *correction* - I mentioned above that my interconnects are HD38. They are actually the HD36, not HD38, which are speaker cables. It appears the Matrix HD series vintage is around 2012(?), not sure.Here’s a recent (last month-June 25, 2020) r...
