un-becoming an audiophile
I am an acoustician, audiophile and music lover and I don't feel the need to put my life in reverse.  I am quite happy where I am.  
What Integrated Amp do You use
darTZeel CTH-8550 integrated amplifierIf you can afford a new one buy it, if you find a used one buy it, you will never look back.  With integrated MC phono, you may never consider separates again.

Learning To Listen
millercarbon, there you go slobbering on the page again.  Yes, I used the word slobber.  At first I was going to use dribble but you got so caught up in yourself that all you left behind was a bunch of slobbering babble.  " When people talk about ... 
Schumann Resonator
to millercarbon and all the millercarbon minions - imagine how sweet your system would sound if you actually plug the thing in!  The proper way to evaluate that is to wear a blindfold and put three receptacles on the wall, two fake and one real an... 
Schumann Resonator
@millercarbon It is clear you like to put yourself on a pedestal and pretend to be all knowing when it comes to hifi. With so many years invested doing that, you shouldn’t be surprised when somebody comes along and challenges you, it’s bound to ha... 
Schumann Resonator
These posts can get a little off target sometimes but most of the time the tweaks large and small do have merit and are grounded in science or at least a physical relationship between what is perceived and what is real.  Schumann resonators howeve... 
Schumann Resonator
millercarbon  I feel compelled to educate you on a couple of things after your baseless raving review of the Schumann Resonator post.... "Starting with one I added a couple at a time until now at 8 with 2 more on the way. Each one improved the sam... 
Please Educate Me
paul6001,  The essence of your post was not lost on me.  While a full answer to your question can be long and drawn out as many in this post would like it to be.  The correct answer is that the digital representation of an acoustic signal is the s... 
Why is black so popular for components?
Black speakers and components are unobtrusive for sure and that's  great if that is what you're going for.  I know the feeling and have spent many hours staring at a flat black AR Ref 6 with the blue/green display.  That said, I recently purchased... 
How it works! From a common man.
noble100, Tim, don't give up dude!  One last tweak is all you need.  Try dipping a fuse in brown goop and biting down with it using the left side of your mouth and then do the same on the right side and compare the results.  This will take hours t... 
Unbelievable
I'm a little late to this party and many of you are not likely to see my post but for those that do here is something to consider.You can make fun of Yamaha for the reference to a glossy black piano finish but how do you reconcile that with the do... 
Best Preamp round $8000
The Ref 6 is a joy to listen to.  Quiet is dead quiet all music comes through clean and natural.  The preamp is not fatiguing at all.  The minute you turn it on you will appreciate what it does.  I have owned the Ref 3, Ref 5 and now the Ref 6 and... 
Is it all worth it?
I spin vinyl about 5% of the time which is about as much time as I get to myself.  That is to say alone time when I get to listen to music and relax.  That said, a friend sent me a link to this cartoon many will find humorous.  http://www.newyorke... 
Subwoofers driving me nuts
Try adjusting the phase relationship of the subwoofer to the mains.  Could be sub is substantially out of phase and cancelling at various frequencies in the low octaves.  While there is no exact solution either physically or in time (phase) in a r...
