Active studio monitors anyone?
@inna - The answer to your question is that *active* pro monitors are not made for or marketed to consumers. No salons and a flattened distribution chain, very limited and very specialized advertising, little or no fancy furniture and no concern a... 
Active studio monitors anyone?
For many practical reasons, active monitors are what one will find in many project and mastering studios. Pro monitors are not designed for or marketed to the retail trade; beautiful woodwork and WAF are not a concern and marketing costs are kept ... 
Redbook Keeps Surprising
Thank you dgarretson, and exactly.  As I have said repeatedly, one can dispose of the original recording however one sees fit. One mustn't, however, retain, or worse sell or give away, *copies* of copyrighted recordings. Retailers, or libraries, o... 
Redbook Keeps Surprising
*Sigh*As I've already noted, copyright law gets weedy and complex, fast. I'm not a lawyer and others seem willing to wade into it deeper. More power to them. In short, if one disposes of a commercial CD in such a manner that some else can own it a... 
Redbook Keeps Surprising
One more time, and let's see if I can make this clear. One can do what one wants with the original recording. One can play it (but not in public), resell it, give it away, throw it away or rip it *for one's own personal use*. The one thing one can... 
Redbook Keeps Surprising
@jon2020 Understand, first of all, I'm not an attorney and copyright law is often ridiculously stupid and complex. The legal rule of thumb, however, is that there are NO commercial recordings that are in the public domain, not even the old Edison ... 
Redbook Keeps Surprising
@jafreeman, jon2020 et al.From our "friends" at RIAA:"Copying CDs    It’s okay to copy music onto special Audio CD-R’s, mini-discs, and digital tapes (because royalties have been paid on them) – but not for commercial purposes.    Beyond that, the... 
Redbook Keeps Surprising
@ oregonpapa et al.I presume that you realize that ripping and then reselling, even donating, the physical CD is a flagrant violation of the fair-use provisions of the copyright law. You MUST have physical possession of the original CD, LP, DVD wh... 
how do you record audible sound, and play it back as infrasound ?
I'm not quite sure I understand the question, but... Assuming the recording is digital, any DAW can lower the pitch of a recording with or without changing the tempo. Altho, going all the way down into the infrasonic range, I dunno... 
Are audiophiles still out of their minds?
Ahem... As the saying goes: "...because they can!" 
Great bookshelf or small towers suggestions
If I was in the market for a diminutive floor-standing speaker, I would, almost without question, order a pair of PSI Audio A215-Ms. You’ve no doubt never heard of them. They are very high-end professional studio mastering monitors made in Switzer... 
Power Cord Length
Ahem. "I just thought somebody could explain why this company rep said what he said, other then to just make you spend more money on a longer cord." I believe you answered your own question quite well enough. There is no reliable, double-blind, in... 
Power Cord Length
I'm sorry, but as far as I'm concerned, exotic AC power cords are pretty much a silly waste of time and money. As a simple general rule, the shorter the cord and the heavier the gauge the better. Both result in less resistance/better current flow ... 
Old friend looking for acoustic folk inspired music
I'm sorry folks, but I'm terrible busy right now. I'll try to respond to some of the comments maybe tomorrow nite or more likely Sunday. Thanks! 
Thoughts on balanced power
A quick note. I personally doubt that, under ordinary conditions, one would be able to perceive any significant difference between the Furhman P-2400 IT and the comparable Equi=Tech Model 2RQ. Undoubtedly the Furhman is both less expensive and mor...
