Comparison of various subwoofers for 2 channel audio
I use 4 subs in a distributed bass array (swarm) and have never had better low frequency reproduction. From what I have read, the integration of the subs is more a result of the interface/crossover and less about the brand of sub used. I have 3 R... 
Eversolo A6/A8
If you are potentially buying a product that will have problems and also have substandard service, why not just switch to a streamer that has a long history of quality and service. They also don't have the quirky software and interface that many E... 
a naive question about HT speakers
@soix  +1 I have the SVS Prime centre channel and like it quite a bit.  
Tidal removing all MQA
@fsgattuso  Glad that YOU think that analog is superior to digital. Also glad that you think we will all find musical nirvana by switching to vinyl. Now, can you please let everyone know what food, wine, movies, etc. that you like, because obvi... 
How to hook up the Anton Naim headphone amp to Mac 8950
Although I am not familiar with either product, I thought I would see if I could find anything  in the user manuals that might help. I must say that Naim seems to follow the same methodology as Lumin. That is providing absolutely no useful infor... 
Power Cables
"Stop listening to audiophools and their drivel about power cords!" Consider yourself lucky that you can't hear any difference. Definitely will save you some money.  
Thumper’s Mother
@uncledemp  No matter what we say or do, there will be a long line of people waiting to call you an idiot (or worse). Personally, I respect and admire anyone that tries to make this world a better place, God knows it needs it. Thank you. PS. I... 
The Horror
@audioaddict  As Morpheus says in the Matrix, “You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland. And I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”... 
Illumination
@Iz1 "Obviously it's easier to critique a recommendation than to take the time to look things up like I did." Next time, do your part and communicate clearly what you are talking about. Who's "Rick"? Astley, Springfield?  A last name might help... 
Eversolo DMP-A8 vs iPhone plugged directly to integrated amp - why no difference?
@audphile1  +1 No response is the biggest flag.  
Raysonic SP-100
"A nit to pick: The EL34 tubes are not self-biasing nor can the user adjust the bias. That means a trip to the dealer or a technician when you want the tubes replaced, or just checked. Tube rolling (trying tubes from different manufacturers), a fa... 
A Better Way to Buy Gear - Help Needed
My advice. If it smells like poop, it probably is.    
What is the Current Guidance on Stereo and AV Configurations
I had the same problem and there is only one proper solution, but like me it may require you to purchase new equipment (AVR and integrated amp) that have the required inputs. The AVR will need to be able to "pre-out" the front channels separately... 
Stacking subwoofers
Seems to me that one would be better served by spreading additional subs around your space, rather than making a stack. Adding more subs in the same spot does nothing to provide additional mitigation of any peaks and valleys in the rooms low frequ... 
Dirty little secret of Pedigreed, decades old Speaker line - no one will address
Sorry, but I don't know and don't care. People do what they want. Which is their right, as long it doesn't harm others.
