Television technology - where are we?
With the laser mentioned by dweller, check out Next Tech on YouTube for how they work, the latest, and how to save some money by buying direct from China for say, a 100" screen. He saved a bundle on that endeavor.As for what you can buy stateside,...

If it anything like the Carrington Event of 1859, there's nothing you can do about it except break out the sunscreen and use the Bar-B-Que. That, and you'll be able to see some auroras in your neck of the woods.All the best,Nonoise

I think film preservation is somewhat ahead of the efforts of the music industry. Googling film preservation shows a long standing effort. Celluloid is notorious for it's degradation and I recall temperature controlled vaults being built a long ti...

Has the Russian troll farm infiltrated Audiogon? 😮 Or just another Fox News viewer?1-I think they've always been here.2-Does the pope wear a funny hat?

Well, I, for one, wouldn't go off if it weren't for them. They seem to wait for things to die down and then it's "send in the clowns."

You simply gloss over what’s been said and just keep on trucking. A couple of examples do not make for the totality of record. One can, however, go to any site you regularly visit and have a field day fact checking them and come to the conclusion ...

How pathetic. First a predictable, Pavlovian, right wing knee jerk reaction and then a another, predictable deflection.And despite all the blather about the NYT, they sure came in handy with the lies they reprinted verbatim from the Bush administr...

A neighbor I had as a kid was a TV repairman who made a good living from it. His son told me the same thing n80 said. A lot of their fixes were to just pop off the knobs and spray WD40 on the pots to clean up the dust that built up over time. It's... 
High quality in-wall UL-C2 rated 10-gauge A/C wiring ?
A question for the fancy-pants fans: Electricity comes hundreds of miles, through umpteen transformers, ’suspect’ cable & connectors to power meter, panel, breaker, & jack and a few feet of fancy wire is going to ’fix’ it?Water comes all t...

Don't worry about 23iceman23. He's still smarting from loosing that spot to Maverick. 
SS Amp Designer by Reputation
Don't take this the wrong way but I'd avoid the pitfalls of a popularity contest. The same caveats you raise about reviews and discussion would apply to any list that anyone cares to come up with.Having said that, there's an amp maker named Liu, f... 
'Unlistenable' early digital recordings?
@steakster,Great topic. I recently figured out how to use an old Blue Circle Thingee as a standalone device instead of using it in line and once that AC was cleaned up, everything sounded better.Old CDs that were just too soft, ECM CDs that were t...
