Luxman vs. Luxman Ultimate
I was wondering about this a while ago.  I believe the answer is - the units with "Ultimate" written in red were more limited edition with even higher-quality parts. For example, the Luxman L-540 has an industrial-grade IE power transformer. Ver...

maghister is the disciple of millercarbon... LOL or was it the other way around?! Sorry I didn't catch that earlier. Well then, Good God. How did we get here?! is there an audio bible that mentions more "disciples" or the particular feats of e... 
Proof of improvements in audio system sound quality....
@cptrips I would say best bang for buck is get a nice set of headphones and a matching headphone amp. Or save until you can afford a nice set of speakers. Go listen to as many speakers as you can and pick your favorite. Take your wife with you ...

Okay @digitalviper Since you asked so politely, I’m going to try my best to answer your question. I can’t promise that what I’m about to type will even be a sufficient answer. Please don’t be angry if my answer is unsatisfactory. To calm your ne...

@digitalviper Sorry to say this, but you should be a professional on-stage comedian. Just read-aloud what you type to folks on audiogon. Forget a regular day-job, use that money you earn to build a great system....then you won’t have to beg your...

Power conditioner wire gauge? Serious issue
@clearthinker  Right on! Thanks for your response. 😀  
Need help! First step into high end audio
@2psyop  Now this is wisdom!  My suggestion is to get the words "high end audio" out of your mind. Those terms mean so many things to audiophiles that is just confusing and often too expensive in dollars. Go with "what sounds really good to you... 
Need help! First step into high end audio
@monkeykibble I would suggest putting together a home theatre system with 5.1 or more - something fairly reasonably priced like paradigm; and powered monitors for your 2 channel music system. For gaming, you can easily configure a receiver to sw... 
Bluetooth speaker that you can disable the startup/shutdown sound?

Power conditioner wire gauge? Serious issue
@clearthinker All power conditioners steal power. Can you explain this? Are you suggesting that power conditioners can degrade a specification - such as "power factor" ? Therefore, limiting power delivery to audio components? Power conditio... 
Best shipping companies
@referee1 Getting involved in shipping just gets you part (or all) of the blame if there is a problem. pay for insurance on the parcel, call the shipping company after you have a tracking number - explain to them it’s a pair of speakers and s... 
Those singers you enjoy,....that don't really have a great voice?
OP, Those singers you enjoy,....that don’t really have a great voice? that’s like saying: ingredients in a dish that don’t really taste good, but you enjoy the meal. Can't enjoy a song if I don't like how the vocals sound.
