|On the hunt for the "just right" turntable lamp-ideas, and where to find 'em?|
Go to Amazon and search on "gooseneck lamp". Plenty to choose from with a clip.
|Falling out of love for my Gallo Strada 2’s (long)|
I recently decided to try something different and took the Gallo Strada 2's out of my AV system. I replaced them with Klipsch Heresy 3's. WOW! what a huge improvement in realism and excitement. TV is much more intelligible and dynamic. 2-channel m...

|How many amps do you own?|
Like candy bars, it's probably a good idea to own both a solid state amp and a tube amp. Sometimes you feel like a nut; sometimes you don’t.

|Good Product or Nonsense?|
I have used Optrix in the past, but stopped using it after it ruined a few disc surfaces - it left a haze on the surface that could not be removed. I could not say it improved the sound at all. I have used Liquid Resolution and that did improve th...
|Kids during audition - aaaaagh!!|
I once had a friend over to do some listening and all they did was spend the entire time on their phone answering messages while giggling. Ugh!Also gotta love it when you have a couple audiophile buddies over for some critical listening and the ne...

|Brookvale Records-Brandi Carlile|
After seeing Brandi Carlile on Samantha Bee a few weeks ago I knew I had to have it. I ordered the vinyl version of "By the Way, I Forgive You" from Music Direct and was surprised at the quality of the gate-fold cover. I was equally surprised at t...
|Switched from RCA to XLR Interconnects - WOW|
My DSPeaker Anti-Mode X4 owner's manual says that, "both the XLR and the RCA outputs carry the same signal." Does this mean that its output is not a true balanced design? Currently I am using it with RCA connection to a Pass Labs X350.5 with 19 fo...
