Your Top Five Blues LPs, SQ-wise...
Reference Recordings Doug MacLeod Exactly Like This 45 LP.If you like AudioQuest they have a whole series of beautifully recorded blues from Doug MacLeod, Terry Evans, Mighty Sam McClain and others. I say if you like AudioQuest because the recordi... 
Compatible TV to audio receiver
No idea what sensitivity means in that sense.S/N is a ratio. Changing input levels does not change the ratio. 74 dB is actually just fine for a phono stage. You're thinking CD players where they can be anything up to and over 100 dB. But being CD ... 
Pin point imaging isn't for everyone
Adding extended and articulate deep bass to my system did indeed improve the sense of envelopment. Not by extending the sound stage per se, but by increasing the feeling of being in the room. The main performance is still up front with every instr... 
Pin point imaging isn't for everyone
erik: I think you missed the point a little, Miller. How natural is pin point imaging in acoustic music? Roy argued, as do I, that it’s really not. Well, let's see. So Bruce is sitting right in front of me playing his acoustic guitar and singing.... 
Compatible TV to audio receiver
No, that's right. Normal line level is around 1 to 3 volts. Your TV fixed is only half a volt (.47 to be exact) so of course you have to use variable and turn it up to get up over a volt where your receiver is expecting.The position of the volume ... 
How would you upgrade my entry level system?
I like the existing sound.would just like to more captivated, can't articulate it any better than that. Don't need to. Captivated is perfect. Captivated happens when your senses detect something is really there. Captivated is better than fascin... 
Help choosing speakers
The Andra is one of a very few really good speakers I have heard. Maybe it was the associated equipment, but they just sounded great, which for me means they disappear leaving only the music in the room. Main problem they are only 87 dB which pret... 
Ceiling fan in listening room?
Just get one that can be run real slow and silent. When it gets hot I use a Vornado on low speed on the floor. Takes the cool air off the floor, makes a gentle breeze, can barely hear it. If your room is quiet (which it should be) then there are n... 
Pin point imaging isn't for everyone
Simple test: close eyes, hold still, drop pencil. Notice you can tell where to look by sound alone. Of course humans can locate by sound alone. Not gonna last long if you run towards the growling tiger, snarling wolf, hissing snake. Anyone unable ... 
Which reviewers and review sites are the ost reliable?
The most reliable reviewer is me. All my reviews are clear, concise, well-written and spot-on. Everyone else's reviews suck. Except Mikey. He's pretty good. 
Are they really 12 ohms?
Would this be true if the speakers were truly 12ohms resistance, or am I missing something? This would be true regardless. No speakers are truly 4 or 8 or 12 ohm. All speakers have impedance that varies with frequency. So your nominal 12 ohm sp... 
wide baffles and baffle step
you have to ask why baffles exist in the first place. A baffle is only for convenience not for best sound. Brilliant! So do you just hang the drivers out there like on strings or something? 
Special pressing LPs when the master was digitally recorded?
I am not a novice, but am not sure what the advantage is in having an audiophile LP pressing of a recording that recorded digitally? Any thoughts? Yes. The advantage is it sounds better.Do a search, find the interview with Jennifer Warnes. Fam...

Searching for matching(?) Subwoofer solution
Up until some time nearly a year ago I had never heard of using more than one or two subs. All my personal experience was based on one sub, plus maybe once or twice hearing two somewhere. Based on all that it seemed getting really good smooth arti...
