If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
Kraftwerk... 'we are the robots'    They (robot legs dancing only) were the featured act at the music awards back in the 80's. Was very popular and interesting to listen to. Singers made themselves sound like robots and now robots are sounding li... 
If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
A good song would still be enjoyable to listen to no matter who made it. I don't see   a reason to hate on it just because it's AI generated. It's up to you. If you like an AI generated song... fine. I wouldn't try to censor it.  If the real arti... 
Anyone experience any Op amp rolling?
@bbarten   Be aware that the Burson V7 are supposed to be even better than the Sparkos 3602 and the same price. (if they fit size wise.) I wonder what the difference is between V7 Burson and the Sparkos ss2590 top of the line. Please check those ... 
Anyone experience any Op amp rolling?
@bbarten   Yes, currently experimenting. I find class 'A' mode to be the most dynamic and punchy. In January, at the audio show in Tampa, there was quite a buzz about Geshelli labs having a socketed DAC the J2. Easy plug in and out. I recently ca... 
Plugging rear ports of "bookshelf" speakers?
The reason for plugging port is the port can muddy the bass. A bass note is first sent out the front of the speaker then a delayed signal is sent out the rear port, hits the wall and arriving slightly later to the listener. The port is also 'tuned... 
Should Speaker Manufactures provide a Frequency Response Graph?
MAYBE some people may like the sound of the speaker regardless of the graph. MAYBE it does sound good even with a not so perfect graph. MAYBE it's thinking outside the box and creating a speaker that has it's own unique signature.  ThomasAndStere... 
Preamp to sub connectivity question for stereo
Take just a minute on the phone and call SVS directly. They have an excellent tech advisor that will give you the proper answers and explanations to all your questions.  
Subwoofer Out VS Subwoofer Crossover
@whitneyhengesbach Points to consider... Your amp is very capable of powering the mid-base drivers of the main speakers no problem. 220 watts into 4 ohm. Plenty loud. The Polk XT70’s are capable of going down to 35hz/40hz. Why buy speakers tha... 
Subwoofer Out VS Subwoofer Crossover
How low do your main speakers go down to? A sub is for 'sub' low bass that the main speaker can't achieve. If your main speaker has good lower ranger woofers I would let them do what they were designed for. They can add punch and dynamics that you... 
Resolving Hum with Battery Back-up (EcoFlow) vs Power Conditioners: success vs failure
I had a hum (very noticeable) on a new system – only on the tube part  There was NO hum using SS amp.  So it's either the tubes or that particular tube amp that is the problem. I would simply NIX the tubes. Easy fix. There are plenty of excelle... 
Loud vs. Tactile Bass
Are you talking home theatre or music? The lowest bass under 30hz is great for home theater. Room shaking explosions and crashes. However, for music, the focus is a bit higher above 30hz in the 40 to 80 range. If you want the tactile feel of a ki... 
electronic music
'Perpetual Morphosis'  by Dustin Wong.  Creative endeavor. Full of interesting sounds and movements across the sound stage. 'Wandering'    by Yosi Horikawa    Excellent. Used as a reference recording.  
Scientifically proven improvement for sound clarity.
@toddalin   I don't walk around in public while listening to music through loudspeakers. The sound you hear IS natural. The 'sound' isn't modified in any way. Your ears are being modified to capture more of the sound. Like animals that can change... 
Dog pissed on speaker
Make the color uniform again by pissing on both speakers. Drink a few beers so you can get a solid stream of foamy urine and really soak'em down. That should also change the odor. Just don't eat any asparagus prior to pissing. That would be bad. ... 
Are there other people like me ? Amazed by their low cost system :)
The main reason I go to audio shows is so I can have a reference to compare my system to. You get to listen to expensive and professionally tuned systems and determine where your system stands. If you don't listen to other systems how could you po...
