When Was The Audio Golden Age?
@tylermunns     In the sixties people were happy with AM transistor radios and jukeboxes.  I remember car radios being blasted for all they were worth.  Idiots that can’t appreciate how to reproduce music properly, or are interested in using mus...

@rvpiano    I raised the one sub issue in reference to your current problem with your Tritons.  My understanding was that you currently had the enclosed sub working in one speaker only.  My point was that if systems are generally well served wit...

When I first started reading about subwoofers the dogma was that one only required one, and many in addition argued that position of the sub relative to the main speakers wasn’t very important.  The justification for both of these points was that ... 
ADD or Audiophile?
I generally read when I am listening.  When I was a teenager in the early seventies I wanted some music in the background when I studied so I gravitated to the unplayed Classical Music in the home since my favorite what is now considered Classic R...

I also once was out phase when I auditioned new speaker wire.  After unhooking the sample cables I mistakenly rewired the original and didn’t notice until the order of the new cable came in a few weeks later.  I had the vague feeling that somethin... 
A.I. Rock & Roll travesty
I read a Classical Music review magazine called Fanfare.  One of their reviewers had AI generate a review on a well known recording, the Pianist Sviatislav Richter’s live 1958 performance of Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition.  Not only was the ...

Don’t know the Krips record that you referenced and I really can’t remember my first recording of the Mozart Requiem .  A late mono Walter was the only lp that I had; it’s usually Jordi Savall that turn to now

OP   how is the speed stability with the Rega?  
It's the Cicadas!
@jayctoy  I moved from the North Shore 20 years ago and haven’t been to Ravinia since.  I now live in the Oak Park area and we go to Grant Park in the summer for live music.  You get the city noise-nothing like ambulance siren to disturb a solo f... 
Sound Quality
I really like playing my ripped CDs on my streamer. The SQ consistently is a tick above what I get from commercial services.  I listen to Classical and find that most services scramble the order of movements in a piece, which is a real PITA.   If...

I really like the Hogwood Mozart Requiem—but miss the absent parts

Can you use headphones?  Also -just curious if listening sans subs puts any significant strain on the rest of your speakers, though I suspect not.     I actually used a recording of Beethoven op 59/1 and 59/3, the first and third Razumovsky Quarte...

I love the Hogwood Mozart Requiem, but it’s a curio because he refuses to use any notes that might have the taint of Sussmayr, so it sounds very truncated.  I think that is being a bit extreme, since Sussmayr was an accomplished 18th century compo...

I’ve been at Chicago Symphony concerts at their summer home, Ravinia, where the Cicadas completely drowned out the Orchestra
