I'm having a really hard time with: "Power cable reduced my soundstage"...
That’s better GK! I think when you come up on this forum talking about certain topics that you should let people know you use a Portable Sony Walkman and ear buds and not an in-room system or one that uses power cables and such so others can see y... 
Can one ever be "done" in this hobby?
Sorry carp, they’re called audio forums :)Nothing wrong with humor, I'm chuckling a little as I speak. It's just that many of the threads here get dumbed down so quickly it takes away from the readers wanting to actually be a part of serious liste... 
Well ... The Lightbulb Just Went On!
Hi MillerYou're not using very much logic here. Why don't you let the thread continue on the merits it started with. Any part any where has a coloration. That's been established since the 70's. Why not build on reality and move forward from there.... 
I'm having a really hard time with: "Power cable reduced my soundstage"...
This is another thread that makes me ask "do you guys even use power cables"?Why come up to a topic if your own experience is that limited? Power cables are not that tough to figure out yet all kinds of speculations, assumptions and techno-verbiag... 
Can one ever be "done" in this hobby?
Done with the hobby? no. Done with these forums? ….. Any audio forum that can not remain on topic shows the lack of interest or the lack of long term interest in the subject. While other audio forums go deeper into the topics this one seems to die...

Price vs performance
The industry has changed, and is changing, so much and so fast due to the internet being the "New Reviewer" that we're seeing the script flip from expensive to reasonable almost without effort. Expensive has never meant best sound in stereo, not e... 
Does anyone use wood for vibration control?
The EX8Just like the CDP but a couple more things. I would cut away the insulators on the wire (that's the extra wrap that was slid on before the soldering was done). See the ribbon wire is folded? Straighten out that crease, you don't want folds ... 
Does anyone use wood for vibration control?
Hi uberwaltzWith the 3100, I would take off the cover and remove the dampening strips. Remove the feet of course. The wire tie back by the transformer I would snip and spread apart those wires. Same for the wires all tied together in the front. Sp... 
Does anyone use wood for vibration control?
Hi uberwaltzI'm doing a system over seas right now so will be back when I'm done with him, but I did get to look up your components. I like them!! They should tune up nicely.see you in a few unless they keep me a while, if so I'll come up tomorrowMG 
Good starter amp recommendation
I always loved the early ST-140. I also liked the 442. If you know how to tune up these amps they’re something special. Also for mono blocks look into the Marantz MA700 (killer sounding amp). And if I may let me tell you about another sleeper, the... 
Does anyone use wood for vibration control?
Hi uberwaltzIf you want give me a list of your equipment again and let me take a look at how they're built. Also what are they sitting on (shelving wise)? Would be nice to do a few tune ups on Agon so people can see how easy it is. MG 
Does anyone use wood for vibration control?
After testing the Springs, Brass Cones, Other selected Cones (other materials) I ended back with the LTR Tuning Blocks on the BP LTR Platform, and this all sits on BP LTR Tuning Rails. I'm going to let things settle more before I use the Top Tune ... 
Why is the high end stratospheric?
"Good sound is not rocket science. Bling is a big factor."Bingo and BingoI have no problem with someone selling Bling, and that’s exactly what it is "way overbuilt Bling", but when someone says it’s better sounding than a simply designed music sys... 
Can one ever be "done" in this hobby?
Hi uberwaltzThis is why I preach doing instead of talking. Audio is simply not nearly as hard as people are making it. On one end you gather the info and on the other end you tune that info back in so it plays how you want it to. MG
