Record player sounds out of tune and "wavy"
I had a similar thing happening on a very good TT.  Turned out the matt that came with the TT allowed the LP to occasionally slip and it would create a sound like the TT was slowing down a bit and then returning to the correct speed.  I threw on a... 
New Fischer & Fischer Audio 670 Speakers : Made Out Of SLATE..
I always find it amusing when people post YouTube videos to demonstrate the sound of a speaker.  They sound just as good as the speaker on my laptop!  🤣  
PS Audio Power regenerator
When I first stumbled upon Audiogon, I was thinking about buying a PP 15 for my own system, having read about the vast improvement in the quality of the power and how much better my system would sound. Looking for reviews on the PP12, I came acros... 
PS Audio Power regenerator
@dcaudio  You don't mention which PP you are using.  1000 watts is roughly 8 amps, so I'm guessing it's the PP 12, which should be able to deliver 8 amps of constant draw.  That's not a lot, but many systems will only draw 3 - 5 amps while running... 
An Inspired Meeting: Haynes and Scofield jam on Allman Bros' "Dreams"
Scofield's CD "Groove Elation" is a masterpiece. IMHO    
Rick Beato's Latest Interview:Warren Haynes
I always liked Warren.  His CD Man in Motion gets lots of play.  Great guitarist.    
How you know your system is improving?
+1 @hilde45   I'm "investing" in my personal happiness,  but otherwise you are spot on.  We are spending with no hope of financial return.   😣  
REAL MUSIC VS. SHOW MUSIC PERFORMANCE AT AUDIO SHOWS. PRESENTATION V. PERFORMANCE? WHY?
I would expect a manufacturer to play whatever music makes their system sound the best.  Anything else would be foolish on their part.  IMHO.    
Insurance for system
Home insurance typically has a set limit for personal possessions, and it's usually a percentage of the property value.  You need to concern yourself with the specific coverage limits set out in the contract.  It is quite normal for limits to be p...

@hotei My pleasure.  One of the discs is Desmond and Gerry Mulligan.  If you have not heard Mulligan's disc "Dragonfly", it's a classic for this topic.  The second track called Brother Blues is such a delight for the use of soundstage and imaging....

@hotei   You're in good company. 🤣  Last night I was listening to the LP Take 10, by Paul Desmond.  Actually on CD as part of a FABULOUS 6 CD box set from RCA.  The complete RCA records by Desmond as a solo artist.  Comes with a 20 page booklet gi...

@mahgister  There's a lot of love in this room.  🤣

My system also does all that.  Steely Dan is a favorite for imaging and a wide soundstage.  The instruments and sound effects are floor to ceiling and wall to wall.  With many recordings of bigger bands, it's very clear how one horn is in the back...

@mahgister  Please answer this simple question.  A recording of a trio.  Guitar, Bass and Sax.  The recording engineer has mixed the final tape to have all three mics/instruments playing an equal signal from left and right channel.  This puts the ...

@mahgister   I understand your love and dedication to acoustic principals.  It makes up the heart of most of your posts.   Your comment :  Than this sentence is not even wrong  and like describing the realitty in reverse order like if walking on...
