Cool it!
I do not use any kind of cooler on my two-channel analog system, even with its 100wpc tube amp. It's just not needed.However, I found that modern multi-channel AV processor/receivers certainly are in need of additional cooling (mostly due to the A... 
Technics or Thorens, need suggestions
Get the Technics. At that quoted price it's a steal. Even at the suggested retail price it's still a better 'table than the Thorens.I presently own a Thorens TD-160, a VPI Traveler, a Garrard 301, and have owned a Technics SL-1200 for about twenty... 
Tekton Design Moab
millercarbon,Congrats on the Moab's. I always smile when I hear that name, as I used to live in Moab (Utah). I've owned a pair of Tekton M-Lore's in Ferrari Rosso Corso (racing red) for going on four years and really love 'em. My music system is h... 
Does anyone collect something else other than music.
Old Winchester lever action rifles, modern firearms, antique Britains cast metal soldiers and artillery, all-metal Tootsietoy airplanes, rare diecast autos, meteorites. 
My Demo results: I feel like I'm at a frustrating block in my speaker journey
Attempting to mix Home Theater and stereo audio is usually a disaster. You want stereo audio? Get rid of everything and start from scratch. No flat screen, no HT receiver, etc. Otherwise you'll be down this rabbit hole forever. Harsh but true. Ask...

I read Stereo Review religiously when I was a kid. Found the record reviews great, but found the equipment reviews too much like Consumer Reports.I don't think that Julian Hirsch had it in him to write disparaging copy on anyone, and that really c... 
Chemically Altered Audio
Sounds like something concocted by the Belts.

American Made Speaker Cables Bulk
A market already saturated with industry-connected BS artists. How are you going to compete? Don't waste your time and money!

Am I the only one who doesn’t love Harbeth P3esr?
Who says the Needle Doctor is out of business?I suspect some kind of internet BS! 
Revel speakers - dealer scuttlebutt
I don't trust ANY dealer or manufacturer (be it audio, automobiles, appliances, sporting goods, etc.) who would badmouth his competition.Once I hear that crap my money goes flying out the door never to return. How stupid (or desperate) can some of... 
Audiophile Receptacle question
I've found that Hubbell hospital grade outlets are all that I need, but I have to confess that our local utility delivers an excellent product and my house wiring seems up to snuff.. Perhaps others with a questionable quality power source might be...
