Chose this because most read. topic, but for all discussions.
I have seen specs on cables @stphens770, and to be honest the only ones I’ve focused on are amp power into what speaker load (and maybe slew rate, but I forget what is good there since my amp is 15 years old and I have never considered changing as...

Glad to hear it @stephens770. I agree that I don’t expect the value to be there going from a couple hundred dollar cable to ones costing thousands.That being said, I haven’t invested nearly as much as you in a system, and if you’ve tried the cable...

@stephens770 - how did you select each piece of equipment in your system? Hopefully you listened to some things. Did you ever compare the sound using better cables for YOURSELF?For the hell of it, just try it. Don't rely on someone getting paid on... 
Surge protectors and power conditioners - Good idea or bad?
What else are you going to plug all those cords into? Power strips? They condition the noisy electric from the power company that causes lights to flicker occasionally. That power goes to your equipment. Wouldn't you want that smoothed out? 
Why not more popular?
I had a pair of Alons that had the tweeter and midrange mount on top of the woofer, which was inside of a box. You couldn't tell because it had an interesting angled grill cover so you couldn't see there was no box holding those drivers. They had ...

Wow - if you are much taller than 6', then I don't blame you for not liking your head touching the roofliner.I guess for you to be comfortable, you have to get one of those big trucks/SUVs that the players in the NBA get.Beleive me, Porsche used t...

@glupson- I’ve had a 996 (‘99-‘05), 997 (‘06-‘09) and 997.2 (‘10-‘12) and all were roomier than my 4Runner in leg room with sunroof. I haven’t raced, but I trust @jss49 when he talks about his 6’4” friend tracking a 911 with helmet . Also I’ve bee... 
Sellers: When do you drop your price?
@dill - that was my point, but you said it a lot more directly and clearly than I did....his compass makes no sense to me, but he said it's on a case by case basis, so I guess he shoots from the hip.

Hey @glupson - have you ever been in a 911? I'm 6' and have more leg and head room than in my old 4Runner. Once you get in, it's very comfortable.For someone in the back seat, that's another matter..... 
Why do some think "music" (not gear, trading, etc.) is the ultimate end?
Hey @rvpiano- simple solution....only play music you like that is well recorded, pressed, and sounds great. You’ll have less selection but won’t be unhappy. Listen to the other stuff in the car, and the stuff you can’t get into, sell.

MC- I have been in PCA for 18 years and am aware of the Porsche depreciation/appreciation curve. I always buy them 3-4 years old certified from a dealer and let the first guy take the $50K depreciation hit. I think with my car it actually happened... 
Sellers: When do you drop your price?
@gano - it’s nice that you support your mother and are charitable. The inheritance could come from your father’s side. Someone maybe you didn’t know existed. That has nothing to do with the subject at hand. The question is whether @hilde45 could m... 
Sellers: When do you drop your price?
Of course you pay a retailer more.....it's retail! Even if discounted. He stands behind the product and will help resolve any issues at a minimum. Hopefully he adds value conveying his expertise on the options available and tips on using the compo...

My wheels are not carbon fiber. I think either a GT3 RS or GT2 has a Weissach package for $30K that had magnesium special light wheels. I didn't even know about the motor mounts. I've only pushed my car once, on an empty highway. It seemed to have...

Hey MC - mine might be my last one - '11 GTS. max 997.2 power other that GT3 (has no sunroof) No turbo, normal sunroof. Triple black, center lock wheels....Please convince me otherwise. I've always replaced every 6 years and now I am overdue.Can't...
