getfrog, whart, and others the best way to connect with many local Austin Audiophiles is through two Facebook groups these days.  One is a private group called 5one2Audio and the other is the Austin Audio Society.  Not all Austin audiophiles are m...

As someone who has personally hosted twelve get-togethers of various iterations for audio or HT groups over the last 11 years and organized or planned 4 more that were hosted by various local dealers. At all of these attendance has varied from 15-...

Thoughts on New Audio Frontiers
Too late I know, but I have had their preamp for about 4 years now, and it has been a great find.I have compared it against a decent amount of preamps and it is tough to beat, especially a the current asking price. At that price it is probably the... 
Has anyone listened the new Argento Flow?
Geo, you need to try at least one FMR PC in your system. I hate it, because they are so expensive but even above the Flow they are like a component upgrade.I got to meet Ulrik a couple of weekends ago, what a great guy. Around his visit I also got...

Argento cables - any experience?
As you can see by looking at my system, I have a good amount of experience and have ended up purchasing as much Argento stuff as I can afford. My IC's will switched to Argento as well once the bank account recovers.I have extensive experience in c... 
what should i keep, shindo or mcintosh
As others are saying, you aren't hearing the Shindo to its full capacity. However I think it goes beyond just the wires you are using. Your entire system just isn't like 100% of other Shindo user systems seen on Audiogon or elsewhere.All of your o... 
Mint Tractor
I just ordered one for my recently ordered Tri-planar arm, which will go with my DPS-2 and Zyx Atmos.It should be interesting to use and contrast, as I also have experience setting my table up with a friend's Dr. Feickert alignment disc.But I like...
