I blew up my receiver. Now what?
@jmk2Priceless...Good call sending it in! I’m glad you didn’t trash it!  
Does It Even Matter?
I use a couple of different WiFi receivers. One is wired via rca to a preamp, the other is coax to a multibit, Schitt dac and then rca to an integrated amp. I use both of them to receive Amazon HD music from my iPhone via Airplay. Both sound good ... 
Why Crazy Prices paid for Pioneer 100 JBL L100 AR1 AR3 AR3A
I had HPM100’s and JBL 4312’s. I prefer a bright speaker, but something in the upper midrange in both bothered my ears. A buddy listened to them with me and ended up buying them- said they sounded great. I assume both bring good money these days, ... 
How long could it take
@varindersinghIt’s hard to say, there are several factors like your asking price, demand for your model, etc.You may consider selling locally if you are new to this type thing. Packing, shipping, and dealing with collection issues can be a hassle.... 
What was your most disappointing album purchase?
I have a terrible L Buckingham album around here somewhere. I wanted to like it, and over the years I’ve given it ‘just one more shot.’ Nope! 
What Percentage Off Would You Expect to Discount For Open Box Amp with Blemish
 @VerdantaudioThanks for answering the question in a reasonable, knowledgeable way. As usual, after reading through a load of ridiculous, nitpicking comments, cooler heads prevail. 
Does altitude change the sound of speakers??
@marklevinsonSorry my friend, if you thought you could ask a question here, you were mistaken. You just opened yourself to be the fresh meat of the day.Don’t take it personally, it happens all the time. Goober Magoos abound, or Karens, whatever yo... 
What Do You Think . . . and How Does It Work?
I use a SVS Sound Cylinder (round tall sub) for my home theater room. It hits pretty hard and tight, but then again I’ve not heard the best in class, etc. It beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, as we say in these parts! 
Anyone with tinnitus or hearing loss who is into "high-end" audio?
Yes, I suffer from tinnitus. Differs in intensity, but I still enjoy listening to music. I’ve learned to tune it out over the years. When I read this post- I started hearing the ringing, haha. I know two people with Meniere’s, nasty stuff. One rec... 
How many people here generally buy used?
Never have purchased a new piece of audio gear, or vehicle, and very little furniture. I dream of how the ballers live! 
Dedicated 20 amp circuit - Electrician laughed!
Go get on a licensed electrician’s forum and let them know what the stereo guys said was proper regarding wiring, grounding, circuits, etc. I’m joking, don’t do that.My point is, I’ve read religious, political, and business comments and advice on ... 
Religious music for less than devout
I enjoy Third Day, Johnny Cash, POD, and others.My uncle in his 80’s sings in a gospel quartet, I think it’s awesome. Many musicians and singers started in the Church. I’ve been a scoundrel most of my life but I like the vibe!Hope you all are stay... 
End of the World system
You crybabies don’t worry about it. Nobody asked for your critique of the question.  
Audio discounts during Coronavirus
Millercarbon, please stop being mean to people on here. Belittling others is not okay, my man. I’m pretty sure I understand why you do it, but that doesn’t make it okay. This is a hobby site, we’re not building jet airplane engines. Nobody should ...
