DCS Sending Legal Notice To Reviewer (Golden Sound) Over an Old Review of Their Bartok DAC
Sorry but an article written by a reviewer about this subject is not the last word. In fact it really means nothing. I got a real kick out of "its always men". Is this comment the result of the fact that this hobby consists almost entirely of men,...

Jerry One has nothing to do with the other. So your mention of the power of the vote just put you on the same no fly list as DCS. Who cares what you think?

Some of the blame lies squarely on the head of gullible consumers who place too much credence on what any reviewer has to say. Navigating the confusing landscape of high end audio can be daunting hence the emergence of sites like ASR.

Well I certainly dont, but others do. I visited this site the other day and was flabbergasted.

Well I dont think that a manufacturer can object if they send a product to a reviewer for review. Now, as is the case with some/many ASR reviews, a product is sent to the reviewer from a member that may be a different situation.

No bullies with deep pockets usually win. I doubt DCS has deep pockets.  
Major innovative break through: The new NSMT Loudspeakers reference speaker
Without really dwelling on this I am not a fan of the original post or this thread. Seems to me that not only is this reviewer calling attention to his review but also getting free advertising for a product. I will assume that since no one has que... 
SOS! Suddenly have a high-end turntable, need to upgrade Amp + Speakers
Amir at ASR listens to less than 50% of the products he reviews. Not a viable site for information in my mind. Another member mentioned balanced inputs and outputs. This is only a true advantage if the components are truly balanced which many are... 
New expensive power cord for amp and no change in sound?
I have noticed the most improvement on digital devices using better power cords. Noticed this primarily on friend's systems who have invested more in digital than I have in my systems. In fact one of the cables used in these comparisons was about ... 
New expensive power cord for amp and no change in sound?
Most likely some sort of grounding issue. A thing you can try is get a 3 prong to 2 prong cheap adaptor which will remove the grounding pin at the wall outlet to see if this changes things. This is just to identify the problem this is not a perman... 
New expensive power cord for amp and no change in sound?
westcoast, I think I got you confused with another poster. So my somewhat aggressive stanch may have been directed at another person on this thread. Keep this in mind if you respond.   
New expensive power cord for amp and no change in sound?
Somehow I doubt that. If this were true you should mention your experiment, give some details and say you heard no difference. All this other stuff is tribal. You go way past giving your opinion, ridicule others that dont share your opinion so tha...

Why do you guys care? If you believe that most of this stuff is snake oil then dont buy it. There always seems to be an undercurrent of smugness when you guys discuss how others spend their money in ways you deem inappropriate. I dont understand t... 
Tube amps under $7500
Balanced is not differentially balanced. I am pretty certain that BAT is differentially balanced and I am not sure about ARC. My guess is not. Only makes a difference if your preamp is differentially balanced. True you can beat some speakers into ... 
No discussion about the Synergistic Pink fuse?
I know that some manufacturers will not warranty their components if you use an aftermarket fuse.
