Test CD s, which ones to get.
     I've got the Ayre CD and value it highly, especially for the Pink, Brown and White Noise tracks.     Great (on repeat) for burning/breaking things in.      But: whenever test CDs, imaging or soundstage are mentioned, I like to remind people ... 
1960 Klipsch Heresy Value
    +1: on keeping anything built by Saul Marantz.                I envy you on the acquisition(s).  ...however they should be looked at by a competent tech as there are parts that will need to be replaced.          Absolutely (especially: an... 
An argument for fuses and maybe power cables in power amplifier
@andy2 -                                                          +1        Very little to nothing can be done*; to improve the sound of truly inferior audio components.         *nor: To dispel the lingering miasma of a Denyin'tologist and the ... 
It's the Cicadas!
@simao - I've been screaming for sex for years now, but my wife always says it's the cicadas.                      Stop screaming and try being a cunning linguist*.                           * SHE'S supposed to do the screaming!             ...

@asvjerry -    They know  What is What          BUT They Don't Know    What is What      It just suks             Funny!     AND: a snowflake had me deleted, just recently, for saying, "it's like teaching a box of rocks, to sort your socks!", ... 
An argument for fuses and maybe power cables in power amplifier
The why after market power cords make a difference?  Lots of theory... Actual testing using testing equipment? Just my ears. I don’t watch oscilloscope screens or listen to test tones.  Just music, using my ears.                                ... 
An argument for fuses and maybe power cables in power amplifier
                                                   btw:              I'm not disagreeing with any postings, prior to mine, in this thread.              ie: everything in the power supply/AC source is in the signal path*.        *In every gain s... 
An argument for fuses and maybe power cables in power amplifier
     Back in March 2022: a thread about power cords and break/burn-in was started.      I hate to type, so: I'm going to copy/paste some of my speculations.      That a highly complex musical signal, MIGHT affect Poynting vectors and signal spee...

New expensive power cord for amp and no change in sound?
@dentdog -        KUDOS, to another experimenter, for trusting their ears and senses!                                           Rewarding, isn't it?                                  Enjoy your systems and music!  
New expensive power cord for amp and no change in sound?
@ps-       KUDOS, for experimenting with your system's sound/trusting your ears & senses.       Supra follows some of the same basic science/construction as I've mentioned, if you've read their explanation, as to why their PCs sound better* ...
