Would you still pay $10k or more for a turntable not full analog front end these days ?
Would you still pay $10k or more for a turntable not full analog front end these days ? So you just wanted to start an analog vs digital argument?  You really don't have anything better to do?   
Seeking help with the Innuos Sense app
Yeah.  I'm in the same situation.  
Seeking help with the Innuos Sense app
The Innuous Sense app, like most apps, uses pictures of album covers as its most common way of displaying music for choice by the user. There will also be text of the artist and name of the album. These are in pretty small print and are not partic... 
why expensive streamers
This high accuracy rate would mean perfect audio bit transfer. As you know, there’s more to good sound than perfect bit transfer, electronic noise transferring with the bits, for one. It’s like wires and everything else in audio that shouldn't ... 
Synergistic Purple Fuse - Aftet 1 Year of Use
Perhaps the differences from the purple fuses were more apparent to you a year ago because the differences were new.  You know how great your system sounds after a really good upgrade and then after a while it just kind of becomes the norm?  We ge... 
Esoteric Amps with Revel Salon 2 Speakers
Here are the specs from Stereophile:  Sensitivity: 86.4dB SPL/2.83V/m (4 pi anechoic). Impedance: 6 ohms nominal, 3.7 ohms minimum at 90Hz. Recommended power: not given. Looking at those specs, I'd say you don't want a low power amp.  What is th... 
Audiophilism is a hobby
I feel sorry for all the Audiophile Billies around here and I think you have problems elsewhere in your lives that make it impossible for you to enjoy music.  I don't want to get into your lives any further, but as far as audio goes, just relax an... 
Audiophilism is a hobby
Audiophile Billy is sitting there fretting about the distortion, the transient accuracy, the imaging, the soundstage, on and on and on and on…. Billy is a ball of anxiety, angst and minutiae-scrutinizing madness. I have never met anyone who li... 
Moody Blues founder Mike Pinder passed away today at 82
I loved the Moodies and still do.  Sad to hear that another has passed. I guess we should just be glad we're still here to listen to their music.  I'd love to get a 50th Anniversary Question of Balance.  
REAL MUSIC VS. SHOW MUSIC PERFORMANCE AT AUDIO SHOWS. PRESENTATION V. PERFORMANCE? WHY?
This problem comes up frequently and I don't think there's a solution.  We all like different music.  Music that one person loves drives another person out of the room.  What's a presenter to do?  I sympathize with them because they have 24 hrs to...

Audiophilism is a hobby
I don't agree that working and paying to get better sound is not about the music.  I'm sure that enough distortion could be added to the best written, played and recorded music that no one would want to listen to it.   We pursue good sound to bett... 
Verity Audio speaker manufacturer silent...
I've looked at Verity Audio speakers often, but I couldn't get past the rear firing woofers.  Does this make placement and the construction, treatment, etc. of the front wall really important?  How do they do in the bass in general?  
Considering a Backert Rhythm 1.4, talk me out of it
I think Backert gives you a 14 day return option.  Check with them to be sure.  Rising prices are killing everybody, so you know what to do about it in the fall.  
The Psychology of Constant (Equipment) Change
Some people get acclimated to the sound of a particular system and it no longer sets off the endorphins after a while.  The sound is still the same, your brain's reaction to it has changed.  Putting in a new component in your system can get your a...
