How crucial is the quality of a digital cable?
I tried a couple of coax cables and they didn't really sound much better than my RCA outs so I tried one of the RCA cables in place of them and the sound was so much better. Maybe it has something to do with being unshielded, but I really can't sa...

@grislybutter  No, more like North Hollywood but Upscale Audio is only open M-F and traffic has gotten really bad in this area. San Diego is about a three hour drive nowadays. I remember when I could drive to SD in just over an hour back in the ...

Well, next week there'll be this to look forward to: Upscale Audio is only about an hour and a half from me (hate LA traffic) but who knows how I'll feel after watching the next video.  All the best, Nonoise  
Do speaker cables really make a difference ?
Why bother....  
Do speaker cables really make a difference ?
Yup.  
Does an Audioquest Niagra 1200 limit amplifier dynamics?
My Niagara definitely does not smooth over the sound in my system. If anything, it lowered the noise floor to where bad recordings still sound bad but good recordings sound even better.  All the best, Nonoise  
Do your speakers bite??
There's a fine line between bite and a hardening of the sound and the trick is to tread lightly.  I've been going through some Toslink cable brands and lengths doing that very same thing: trying to find that balance.  It's more of a finishing tou... 
Does an Audioquest Niagra 1200 limit amplifier dynamics?
Mine doesn't. Everything just got cleaner and more relaxed sounding. I live in an old apartment so I compete with the draw among 30 tenants and the Niagara made that magical night listening into an all day affair. All the best, Nonoise

Didn't take long before the "made in China" nonsense started, didn't it?

I think a lot of the fretting about the stands is much ado about nothing. Some here should write detective novels while spinning plots on places of origin. And thanks, @mapman for the only honest feedback so far.  All the best, Nonoise

Again with the stands.... The Linton stands (which I have) will work perfectly with them. And if needed, a set of Iso Pucks would raise them 1.2" or something else as a footer. That would put the center of the Sourcepoint 10 just below the plane ...

Well, whadayaknow, Steve Guttehberg has the first review out on the Source Point 10... Opps! Didn't notice it was already posted. All the best, Nonoise

For once, someone didn't follow the "form over function" edict. Thank goodness AJ was given free rein, with sound being the main consideration, instead of looks.  I also like his design criteria of being able to see into the recording as much as ... 
To all our Veterans here, Thank You!
To all those who answered the call, thank you.

They're just as tall as my JBL 4319s but a few inches wider and a few more even deeper so the Wharfedale Litton stands can easily handle them. Those stands come fully assembled and are sturdy as heck.  As for the Music Direct catalog, I just went...
