Speaker upgrade question - Wilson vs Focal
Can''t help you with Focal, but I am auditioning Wilson now at home, with the Sabrina's, which surprised me for their imaging, clarity and presence, especially from such a small footprint. My room is likely too big for the Sabrina's, and I too wil...

Perfect Path Technologies: Omega E mat
I only follow this post on occasion, and have not kept up with the personal attacks, or claims of benefits vs snake oil. My goal in writing today is to simply share my experience from visiting with Frank the other day, and listening to how his rig...
