Adona audio Racks. Anybody use them?
I own a Zero SR4 rack:  https://www.adonacorporation.com/zerosr4.html .  I like the fact that one can position its shelves literally anywhere within its confines.  It does a great job of supporting and isolating my 120 lb. turntable.  And as menti... 
Diffusion vs. Sound Absorption views
I have found GIK as recommended above, to be a good reasonably priced source for acoustic panels.  I installed them in our previous house and plan on using them in our new one. If the application allows, I prefer the aspect of free-standing/movab... 
Well maybe it IS my hearing
What does not go away and allows 70 year olds to evaluate tweeters..is... temporal acuity. Our hearing is based not on frequency range but on complex temporal harmonic transient (macro and micro) timing position, level, and interleaving. Frequency... 
One Amp To ‘Rule’ Them All....
One ________________ To ‘Rule’ Them All....Fill-in the blank with a noun any noun -- a thread starter for every forum in existence.  This question is the definition of moot, yet I and many others replied.  Sounds like the definition of irony; we... 
Am I missing something here?
....for a system....that has cost me roughly $1,200.00 I would say it sounds better than most systems I have heard in the 10k+ region. Congratulations on assembling a system that is personally satisfying....   
Need Advice on Amp Audition at a Dealers
@tuberist Auditioning your amp against another without your preamp, front end, and ESPECIALLY with different speakers, will perhaps allow you to establish an amplifier preference.  But it's highly questionable whether that preference will be a... 
Abominations: HT processor to tube amps?
@erik_squires, glad you asked the question.  I too have had the thought of doing likewise -- i.e. using a tube amp for L&R in a H/T setup.  So, I am also interested in hearing any good/bad or otherwise comments or experiences....    
A problem with AC Power you may not have considered.
@elizabeth, I too use some of what you do.  But as we in this hobby are wont to do, I'm always wondering if there is something better.  Especially something better at a budget beating cost. Having someone with @spatialking professional background ... 
A problem with AC Power you may not have considered.
However, you don’t have to home brew – you can purchase equipment that meets the local safety codes and is LAB certified to meet multiple suppression standards. These units have strong filters in them to clean up line power. There are replacemen... 
Is Social Media the demise of audio review publications?
Sifting through information is the definition of an educated, informed life, constantly enhancing one’s knowledge and growing as a person. How else does one determine whether information is worthless or otherwise? I certainly don’t take someone’s... 
Roon Nucleus
 I know bubkes about IT, but it appeared that the Roon software, which must be extensive, overwhelmed the Computer.  I am guessing that I am not the only person that has had this issue and that Roon has realized that their product may perform bett... 
most advanced speaker in a rectangular wooden box?
They require  well sorted amps and cables to get to a "high end" level, but man…a great speaker. wolf_garcia:  What amp(s) and cable(s) are you using with your Heresy III's? 
Purpose Built & Sold Sound Absorption Drapes & Curtains?
Thanks for the replies.  Prior to posting this, I found nothing based on my searches that would perform acoustically across the audio spectrum like a sound absorbing panel would.  A professional in the acoustics business advised that my findings w... 
Tube and SS pairs
What I learned is that there wasn't an ideal choice; there is an  overabundance of terrific gear; the options and pairings really are endless; and final choices (imperfect though they are) have to be made. Yep, unfortunately nothing, absolute... 
I'm not dreaming - these are great CD copies
Interesting discussion, but what's a CD (grin)?  Since moving to PC audio well over a decade ago and having over 100k tracks on a 10tb HD, I haven't listened to one of the little sliver disks in years....  In fact, most of my DVD's and Blu-Rays ar...
