My first response: the ones about which Al (Almarg) comments. Although many of his contributions are over my head, I seem to absorb concepts and methods. Second response: those experienced members who are willing to give an opinion. When I ask for... 
Glenn Campbell - new found respect
ok. interesting, Tost. 
Glenn Campbell - new found respect
Glen Campbell played in Frank Sinatra's orchestra. He used a capo which enabled him to play in any key, and for that reason he was much sought after. I would not have thought that the use of a capo was that rare. 
Forgiving digital coax ?
Empirical Audio sells a digital coax for $250 which is 4 ft in length. Even though I can't compare it to other high quality coax, I highly recommend auditioning it. 30 day return. It was a huge upgrade in my system. And Al did not discourage me fr... 
Review: Harman Kardon HK990 Amplifier
I haven't checked this post for a long time, not that I can be helpful at all. Is there an authorized hk service center in India? An hk service center would be the key, I think. Good luck. 
Two Channel HT

HK T-60
I think you have good advice from above. If you are interested in the T-60 historically, you might want to keep it. I don't think it would be exagerating to say it was famous for filling a gap between the lower end and the top turntables. With the... 
Room treatment
Mapman, the neighbor in construction stopped in today. His take on zman's ductboard: "We call it buffalo board. It's basicly cardboard and it would absorb a lot of sound. It comes in 4x8 sheets for about $6. We could frame those up in no time. And...

Alzheimers on the run, baby.(forgot to include diffusers as option) 
Room treatment
OK. 1 x 3 instead of 2 x 4; ductboard or other materials, thicker and/or denser material for bass traps, all corners, wave the ceiling, go slowly so it doesn't get too dead, keep head out of corner. I think I've got it.Thanks, everybody for great ... 
Room treatment
