Favorite Cowboy Junkies?
Lay it Down is one of my faves. It's mood inducing. I've been following them since I first heard the Trinity Sessions. It was love at first listen. Margo has a voice that can melt steel. I've been infatuated with her over the years. I saw them pla... 
Built a DIY butcher block and iron pipe rack over the weekend
@jmphotography. I can't thank you enough for inspiring me! I'm really happy with this thing. One more nice feature is that the footers can be adjusted to accommodate an uneven floor. I was able to raise one leg 1/4" to make things level. For what ... 
Built a DIY butcher block and iron pipe rack over the weekend
@jmphotographyI want to thank you for inspiring me to build a similar rack. I used the same materials, but I designed mine with five shelves that are 24" x 24". The total height is 45". I used end caps at the top so the whole thing can be disassem...

Best Minimalist DAC?
I agree with Bill_k. Steve, you have a lot to share, but this post crosses the line between info and infomercial. When I read posts that bring up Atma-Sphere, I respect the fact that Ralph doesn't jump in to beat us over the head with specs and re... 
Quicksilver amps an appropriate match for Wilson Sophia?
Looking at specs alone, the Mini Mites are ridiculously underpowered for Sophia IIs. If you consider the fact that double the power produces 3 more dB, the Mid Monos aren't going to make any difference from the Mini Mites. The Silver 88 and V4 wil...
