A little History lesson on, "High- End" cables:
"I dont think they assume people on average would be. The business plan only requires selling a couple pairs a year . "Their business plan relies upon ripping off gullible people with (hopefully) too much money to spend. Some business! 
A little History lesson on, "High- End" cables:
Beyond a certain point, with respect to materials and assembly costs, a $5,000 cable is not better than say a $300 cable. What you hear are small differences-- like flavor notes between a varietal of wine. Is a $500 bottle of wine "better" than a ... 
Are high sample rates making your music sound worse?
Snopes is a very reliable source for debunking urban legends such as the green marking pen used on CD's. Where's the evidence they are unreliable? ... thought so.Cables can sound different in different systems, but above a certain level of materia... 
$10k Speaker Cables??????????????
The world has less that 3,000 billionaires-- no, these products are made for high net-worth professionals and of course, the venerable trust-fund-babies. Pity the fools that actually believe they have improved their system by dropping $10k on one ... 
best interconnect at decent price
jblselector: You're very correct. Cables do vary in quality and sound characteristics, but beyond a certain level of build quality and material quality lies a sea of craven hype and outright bullsh!t. People often mistake differences for improveme...

Oppo Ceasing production
I've been in this hobby since I was 15 years old-- back in the 1970's-- so what's changed? Money, in the form of disposable income. Wages and salaries for the middle class have been stagnant or in decline since then. Economic mobility in the US ha... 
Gonna have to ditch the Soundsmith Carmen II
I can tell you from personal experience that Soundsmith stands behind their products. Peter will get to the bottom of this problem for you if you just give him a chance. How many owners of high-end audio companies actually reach out in forums like... 
Gonna have to ditch the Soundsmith Carmen II
I have two Soundsmith cartridges-- The Hyperion and Paua and neither exhibit the slightest sibilance (other than the occasional bad LP-- and that's hardly the cartridge's fault). I use one on a SOTA belt drive table and the other on a Pioneer dire... 
Done buying new vinyl

Tom Petty: It was an "accidental" OD
Does anybody here no how many US citizens are killed by medical error in this country every year? You might be surprised to know that in this unhappy statistic, we're NUMBER 1! With more than 250,000 preventable deaths by error per year. Far more ... 
Done buying new vinyl
I've been buying vinyl for decades, but went near 100% digital from the late 1980's until about 2010. I have thousands of CDs and several thousand LP's. I continue to buy a mix new music and older stuff.It has always been a mixed bag. When done ri... 
New Tweak --- Its Fantastic
Okay, here's my politics-free questions about this product:1-- Can you explain micro-arcing, or, if that term was a typo, just elaborate on the what the problems are that this product is aiming to solve or diminish and what makes it different from... 
Why does all new pop music sound the same?
All pop music does not sound the same. I have been collecting music for decades across a wide spectrum of styles and types-- including a lot of pop. The sound quality ranges from the normal over-compressed to beautiful and dynamic.I agree with oth...
