MQA....again.
I wonder what audiophiles will say about the cassette tape format that is coming back. I am sure the talk will focus on how badly it sounds.   
a naive question about HT speakers
I would add this. All speaker should be in tonality…in sync. The problem with mixing speakers is that sounds in HT tracks go from speaker to speaker and should not sound different. That’s what I would look for, same brand and model, built for HT u... 
Digital vs Analog experiment
In my experience with some of those similar file formats is that the source equipment made a big difference. I had some friends listen to CDs, streamed files on two different brands of streamers, switched out DAC and also used an older turntable w... 
MQA....again.
The same criticism you see for turntables are seen for MQA. Have you not seen how much money is being invested in bringing turntables and record albums back? That’s invested money. I don’t really think you can make turntables sound better…. the te... 
MQA....again.
MQA sounds very much like the turntable debate. Digital music keeps improving and streaming and DACs improve. Turntable and analog is not needed, old technology. So many people buying expensive record players and record albums. It’s a gimmick to m... 
YouTube star Jay loves McIntosh MC 901 amplifier
Jay usually luvs whatever he gets. He has some very hi end gear but I question his objectivity. The relationship between dealers and brands is well known.  
Shouldn’t Do This, but…
I work at a hospital. Write down your post title on a piece of paper, then cross out the word “but”. That’s the answer you’re looking for.  
Tekton Double Impacts
The DI SE has been a great addition to my stereo. I certainly understand if some don’t like them or even have an issue with Eric. I have not and have had a good experience with the performance of the speakers and the customer service. I hear the c... 
Benchmark Media Systems. Right or wrong
There were many manufacturers who came out against MQA, and a few vowed to never incorporate that circuit into their equipment. I don’t remember anyone complaining about them taking a stand on that. In fact many forum members here believed them to... 
What if a high end speaker measures really badly?
I have yet to hear anyone listen to measurements when listening to a pair of speakers, therefore I really don't pay attention to them....  
Are You a Swifty?
Like her or not, Swift is carving her name in the music annals. Also, as mentioned before, she just may a significant political influencer. Like many cultural icons, I don’t think she cares too much about the people who don’t like her or her music... 
You tube hifi influencers. Love them or hate them?
OP “Recently, I was thinking about diving into the world of 300B based amps. No local dealers had any 300B amps to audition, despite living in a city of 3 million population. So I did a google search which took me to, among many reviews, some you... 
Thin Line Between Critique and Courtrooms: A Dialogue on the Recent Audiophile Drama
Whatever Eric does or does not do will not affect people who don’t have or don’t want his product. Most people here have made up their mind already and many long ago. If anyone was bullied by Eric I would be willing to take that into consideration... 
Thin Line Between Critique and Courtrooms: A Dialogue on the Recent Audiophile Drama
Wow so many people eager to take a swing at Eric at Tekton. Kinda like the Salem Witch trials. Every man, woman and child throw a rock at the woman going through the gauntlet. from the Op” And crucially, what does this mean for the future of hone... 
Re: streaming recommendations for newbie
As many have mentioned the Bluesound is a great choice since they offer tremendous support and the software is very good. I recommend a wired Ethernet connection as many have had problems in the past with wireless (maybe they have engineered that ...
