Have you ever used a separate speaker selector unit to audition speakers? Would you?
in most cases, for most people, sonic memory is good enough, long enough... so that no switching device is required. If you find that you can’t tell the differences between the two, unless you had a switcher for instantaneous switching, then they ... 
I can prove your room is bad
humans are designed, from the ground up, to have the space intrude on and integrate with the sound source. It’s the native environment of the human hearing system, in situ. The question... is...: to what level, should that environment intrude and ... 
In the middle of a pandemic, Stereophile reviews ~ $30K equipment
Reviews are planned in excess of 3-6 months ahead of the publish date, for most paper based publications. It is simply not possible to do things any other way. It is no less a long term planning task than complex manufactured goods. With regard to... 
How many people here generally buy used?
Used and broken. Me fix, me fix. Cheap cheap. Like a crack head, like a tweaker...how much audio can I buy for my $43 of crumpled bills? As much as I possibly can. So, make some aspect of it myself, and just buy the ingredients. Thus, buy busted .... 
You could work for any manufacturer, past or present...
You are reminding me of living in Windsor, and going to detroit. Sometimes I’d wear a ’Canada’ t-shirt. I’d accidentally wander into the black areas of Detroit and marvel at the differences with things like a sears with all black mannequins displa...

Carver TFM 35 popping sound at high volume need help
This is a question for the DIY audio forum, or similar. But, the carvers can have problems with their dual rail thing going on, ie higher voltage rail capacitors needing to be replaced. Pretty good odds it needs a recap if it has never been touche... 
Dedicated 20 amp circuit - Electrician laughed!
I’ve done isolated/home-run dedicated circuits for high power pro installs. Makes all the sense in the world, when the peak draw might and does easily hit/peak at 2500-4000 watts per run line. (eg, double 18" JBL bins per bridged amp, etc). Keeps ... 
Silver is the appropriate color for everything but speakers.
Anodization in color never works as the control of temp, voltage, stirring, mixture ratio, quality of surface, grounding, etc...all of that is never exactly repeatable. thus, two functional anodization colors, silver and black. for black, it's eas...

Can speakers be stored in a garage?
The stinkiest lowest grade dryer anti-static sheets that money can buy.  Put them in the boxes, and that will keep all critters away. They hate that stuff.  It'll drive wasps, bugs, mice, squirrels, raccoons, etc, right out of an attic. It's flat ...
