White Album, when's your last listen?
Just gave it a fresh listen on CD!This was the first listen since I completed my recent tweaks to my system.The results: I'm very happy camper! Everything was there and everything sounded "right". Even picked up a few new details I've never heard ... 
White Album, when's your last listen?
One of the many factors that make the Beatles great is the diversity and exploratory nature of their music. No two albums sound the same, particularly in the second more artistic half of their career. The White Album is the most in interesting fro... 
White Album, when's your last listen?
The Beatles, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Mozart. I might toss Tchiakovsky in as well, I suppose.Towards the less competitive, heavy metal/hard rock/grunge edge, I'd toss in Metallica, AC/DC Led Zep, and Nirvana, I suppose, but I would not put... 
Arcam FMJ CD36 or Musical Fidelity A5?
I would most likely go for the a5 or other MF CD player if I were to upgrade the CD in my system. I bought a second hand A3CR amp a while back and have been most pleased with the results. I know some are suspicious of MF because their equipment ha... 
White Album, when's your last listen?
I've listened to a lot of music over the years + have many favorites. I always find I come back to the Beatles body of work as my reference standard... the all time best + timeless."I Will" is an all time classic love song...one of the many great ... 
Square room with vaulted ceilings
Give it a try...what is there to loose? Do you have another option? If not, make the best of what you have.I have a 12'X12' room with a vaulted ceiling (and another with a 7' planar/flat ceiling) and no particular problems I could relate with eith... 
New Product......Intelligent Box
I don't have an answer for many things....this is one of the less important issues in my mind.I do find the discussion here most fascinating though!And, I've actually thought of a way that zapping a disc COULD improve the sound. I haven't determin... 
New Product......Intelligent Box
Whoops, sorry...actually the vendor site has info about their intelligent chip but nothing about the intelligent box, which is different though maybe each is attempting to solve the same problem ( I should read more carefully I suppose)????I'm so ... 
New Product......Intelligent Box
Actually it is explained in gory soft sold techno babble on the vendor's web site if you do a Google search.But I didn't see an answer to my question: Bits are bits. They are either there or not there. For this gizmo to work, one has to assume som... 
New Product......Intelligent Box
Freemand,I suppose this is no different than any other piece of audio gear or modern technology, for that matter.If the user likes something for whatever reason and thinks it makes a difference for the better in their life, that's probably all tha...

Tvad,Hilarious!I actually own a cassette tape rewinder that I bought for a pittance years ago at Radio Shack in order to offload some wear and tear from my expensive cassette deck. I had faith in it....and it worked! 
New Product......Intelligent Box
maybe a good marketing slogan for this gadget would be "PhotoShop for CDs".Is there an "undo" button? 
New Product......Intelligent Box
Oh, one other question. Do they have a gadget that I can use to zap my vinyl and improve it as well? 
New Product......Intelligent Box
I suppose it's also possible that this gadget does alter the disc in some way that simply changes or alters the bit stream being encoded sound in a manner that some might perceive as an improvement if there is something they didn't like with what ...
