Do you belong more to souce first or to speakers first school of thought ?
Interesting responses here, and probably no one correct answer for all situations. Today’s digital front end equipment has been changing and improving rapidly compared to speaker and amplifier technology. Just look at the number of new digital fro... 
Do you belong more to souce first or to speakers first school of thought ?
To me, the source is somewhat discrete relative to the rest of the system. A crappy source will sound crappy with whatever follows. However, the speaker/amplifier relationship is much more symbiotic, as several here have said. I believe somebody m... 
EVS Music Purifiers - Amazed by how much improvement they make! Anyone else try them?
Just made a pair of RC filters.  10 ohms resistors and .01uF caps connected in series.  Duelund Silver/Graphite resistors, Duelund pure copper foil caps, Mundorf banana plugs, and Jupiter Condenser Co. solid copper leads, for a total of $80/pair. ... 
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
Hundreds of thousands of words here yet not one opinion changed. The very definition of "running in circles". Is anyone having fun?  
looking for a recommendation on adjustable height metal speaker spikes
Sound Anchors stands/racks for speakers, amps, and electronics come with a very simple threaded spike that can be locked in place with a nut once an appropriate position or height is established. These are essentially threaded ramset anchors with ... 
Need recommendations on 15ft speaker cables
The OP is already using 10 awg stranded copper speaker cables, which is plenty big for the run length.  Other than a few posters suggesting Canare 4S11, just about every poster has given a different cable recommendation.  BTW, 4S11 is actually a s... 
seeking advice on iso pucks /stands or similair that won't stain speakers?
I am not able to offer a reliable response to your question since my experience is so different.  My stand mounted speakers weigh 105 lbs each so much heavier and they are actually bolted to a steel plate that is also bolted to the underlying 75 p... 
Mojo Audio - Mystique Y NC DAC
This should be a fun thread, since I purchased an X SE with AD1862N-Z chips and Nano Crystal Chokes just a few weeks ago and I am currently comparing it with my EVO Pro that also has AD1862N-Z chips. I previously owned a regular X SE (non Z, non ... 
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
Just the mention of ASR is a trigger here because so many do not agree with Amir's measurement based conclusions.  They also seem to resent that he administers his own website and runs it as he desires.  The fact that none of the detractors have t...

@mapman  +1 Speaking as a professional engineer now for a bit over 40 years, I agree with you.  
Whats playing on your system today?
@jasonbourne71 - two days ago, now that is some buffering! Over here today: Fleetwood Mac, Before the Beginning - 1968-1970 Sessions  Some very nice Peter Green guitar!  
Need recommendations on 15ft speaker cables
Ok, then same question, "What are you trying to change or improve?" There is nothing inherently bad about 10 awg stranded copper speaker cables.  Since you are looking for cables that "provide SQ upgrade," is there something about the sound that ... 
Need recommendations on 15ft speaker cables
I am currently using blue jean Rca cables which are all copper 10awg I believe. I cannot find "Blue Jean Rca cables" listed as a speaker cable on their website. If those cables are in fact an all copper, 10 awg speaker cable, then they should b... 
Racks, equipment and footers
Fortunately, or unfortunately, I no longer need something like that but if I did I would definitely talk with you. It reminds me of the fern and roby rack and a little of the much more expensive Fleetwood Rack by Fleetwood Sound Company/Oswalds Mi... 
why expensive streamers
I am confused about "no jitter."  When I was looking at different DDCs, I came across this review about the Singxer SU-6 model, that I ended up purchasing.  The reviewer performed measurements and at that time the SU-6 had the lowest jitter of uni...
