Freedom by Beyoncé
@stuartk -- thanks. Didn't know that.   
Cornwall IV vs. Volti Rival, Razz; Razz v. 1, 2, 3 -- what changed?
@silverfoxtv1800 WHY did you erase the posts? They were part of a dialogue and now the thread makes far less sense. Pretty weird.  
What’s your opinion about Dali speakers?
I've never heard them sound that great, but I've only listened in stores. For value, if we're talking bookshelves, I'd be more inclined toward Fritz or Dynaudio or Ascend.  
Cornwall IV vs. Volti Rival, Razz; Razz v. 1, 2, 3 -- what changed?
@silverfox I did. I'd like to seem him do a tear-down of a Volti for comparison.  
Happy Friday gents

Has a Power Conditioner Improved Your Sound?
Any thoughts about how to test if there is much noise or interference to begin with? If you don't have a problem, a solution won't do much more than drain your wallet.  
If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
@inna Of course, AI is a huge energy user, so I'm glad you mentioned climate. A.I. use is directly responsible for carbon emissions from non-renewable electricity and for the consumption of millions of gallons of fresh water, and it indirectly b... 
AI-Written Stereophile Articles
Others on this forum said they wouldn't mind if music was AI generated as long as they enjoyed the music. Perhaps the same can be said about articles.  Let 1000 simulations bloom. As longs as the pleasure is experienced, authenticity is just the ... 
The (never ending) Quest For “More”
"Variety is the spice of life." The notion of there being one goal is not true for me.  
If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
I can foresee a time when humans won't make  qualitative judgements vis a vis human vs. AI. Over time the lines will blur as to human vs. AI content, we won't be able to differentiate between the two.  Given the way we are already prone to dehu... 
Recommend me a tube integrated amplifier
Check this out.  
If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
hilde45, you should drop the whole intention angle. It’s misleading. The throbbing of a big twin motor is definitely music to the mechanic’s ears and only a few are immune to the heavy metal thunder -- intent notwithstanding. Btw, very nice thre... 
If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
The may or may not be compositions, but they are organized enough to be readily recognized and they do incite an emotional response.  This is a really intriguing comment. If they may be a composition, who is the composer? I admire and get beau... 
If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
Music, for me, is about the human connection.  I don't appreciate it as a product.  If I can't relate to the musician struggling with their instrument or find an emotional connection with the composer I quickly become disinterested. I agree. I ...
