Solid state amplifiers and sound stage, especially front to back "depth"
I have a Lyngdorf 2170 (modded up a bit).Over the last few years I’ve done many of the usual things aimed at optimizing SQ in every parameter most audiophiles pursue.  Depth of soundstage remained elusive.  I had some depth, but nothing I would co... 
New Perlisten S7T Towers
2 ago I noticed that chess-board pattern on some Rockport speakers.  Common supplier?   Likely.  I was looking into Rockport after hearing a good podcast with the founder and the two guys running the business with him now. 
Floorstanding Speakers on Platforms
In my experience, Douglas_Schroeder is correct about the benefits of speaker elevation alone, irrespective of the pedigree of the stand.  Although the stand design can add performance, it need not be expensive.I discovered this first-hand, when I ... 
Love to hear from current owners or past users of Isoacoustics Gaia footers.
From my previous post, I should state the obvious: to my ears, the Herbies BFD sounded better between my speakers and the stack of concrete pavers and wood sqaures than said stack without BFD’s.My DIY platforms are wood with threaded inserts for 5... 
Love to hear from current owners or past users of Isoacoustics Gaia footers.
In summer of 2018 I purchased sistrum platforms by Starsound Technologies (new name since, i think) with a 60 day MBG.  I liked them generally, but thought I should make some comparisons, so I brought in GAIA footers.  Frankly, I found them very v... 
Any reviews of Sound Sellers of Marinette WI?
In Fall of ‘89 I bought (and still own, but don’t use) an NAD 7400 receiver and NAD 6 cd changer from Sound Sellers.  Just recently was telling a dealer who sells nationwide about SS.  Commenting on what a great name it is.  Glad to know they are ... 
A few not-so-obvious things I learned doing room treatment
Thanks for the link for the mic.The person is remote.  I’ll take readings at his direction. His interpretation and recommendations will be the same as if he were here—other than he will not be able to listen to the changes along with me.Seeing gra... 
A few not-so-obvious things I learned doing room treatment
Should add that while I “think” my room is pretty sorted out based on how much better I’ve made it sound over time....it will be very interesting to see what REW says about my “sorting”.  Lol. 
A few not-so-obvious things I learned doing room treatment
Hilde45,Thanks so much for this thread.  After futzing with my room acoustics/set up endlessly over the last few years, I recently made changes that so-improved SQ, I decided the room would be fully addressed—either by ear or based on REW measurem...

My thoughts while reading the two previous posts....“Veroguy’s report is gonna be so interesting and useful—regardless of the outcome.  How great is it that folks evaluate stuff I’m interested in and report their findings?”“Holy Moly, Raceace alre... 
Tinnitus sufferer: is it the speakers or the 24bits/192kHz
Mocktender,My tinnitus started 2-3 weeks after I started steaming. My source was a CD player used as a transport.  Now an Innuos Zenith and Qobuz only.  No Dac change.Listening time went thru the roof.  Volume is rarely above 65db avg per my db ap...

What a great thread on cassettes.  Thank you, Bless you, and RIP Mr. Ottens.Every post so far is a bulls-eye in relatability for me.  To 15 year old newly-drivers-licensed music lovers, cassettes weren’t a luxury anymore than the internet is today... 
I bought some Owens Corning 703. Now what?
Funny this is your most recent post.  Because 2 days ago on 2.27 I was in Home Depot looking for 703.  I will try Lowes next and then other local building suppliers.  Will let you know if I find it at a lower price than online.  I just thought of ...
