Auto-Tune, Snake Oil, Fuses, Cables, Room Correction, Best DAC, Measurements & Tekton

Bonham’s Squeaky Drum Pedal
I thought I was the only one that noticed that.    
What do you guys think of adding a subwoofer to this system?
At least two subs.   
What caused double posts of same discussion
There is also no, “I’m not a robot” box anymore.
