Which one is better tube tuner or Digital tuner?
I've enjoyed an analog Magnum Dynalab FT-101A tuner (FM) for many years. Much better sound quality than streaming. I'm fortunate to live in an area with good reception..  
Kef LS50s - great like me but need to come up for air
I have found the Kef LS50s to be quite demanding but they will reward your efforts. Room treatment and the addition of a small sub (Rel T/5i) made for a much more enjoyable listening experience.  
It’s all a matter of degree
I’m quite happy with my system right now and haven’t made any changes in some time.I’ve done my share of tweaking over the years but found that most are short-lived and of little value. The things that have worked are based on solid engineering pr... 
Subwoofer question
"What is the rationale behind facing the subs toward the wall?" Boundary (driver-wall) reinforcement is increased, thus more bass.  
Why I'm not adding a sub to my 2-way monitors for music
Adding a small sub to augment small monitors was one of my better decisions.   
Class A into Class AB
jjss49 "https://www.firstwatt.com/pdf/art_leaving_class_a_2019_redux.pdf" That Nelson Pass article prompted me to experiment with bias current on my Bryston Integrated. Every aspect of sound quality was improved by bias increases, especially at ... 
Can recommend some non-fatigue SMALL bookshelf for near-field listening?
The Kef LS50 works very well for near-field listening. The coincident/coaxial driver provides a single point source of sound that separate drivers cannot march.  
Need help choosing a new CD Player
Had a Sony X303-ES CDP that I enjoyed for 25 years but it was starting to show its age and parts were no longer available. Replaced it with a Marantz CD6006 and very happy with my decision. A very musical presentation that's easy on the ears.  
Power Cables on Subwoofers do Matter
hilde45 2,843 posts 12-23-2021 6:47am FWIW, I went back and forth on my REL 328 sealed sub and heard zero difference. I contacted REL and they said in their tests it didn't make a difference. They said, "A while back, REL tested some third part... 
Why not use a piece of silver wire instead of a jumper cable?
  kijanki, I like your solution... better than jumper cables with additional connections (wire to termination).  
REL T/5i compatibility with Yamaha integrated?
No problem with a Rel T/5i connected to the speaker outputs of a Bryston B60R Integrated Amp using the Speakon connector. Red wire to right speaker + output, yellow wire to left speaker + output and black wire to right or left - output. Crossover ... 
Who Tried Power Conditioners Over The Years and No Longer Use Them Today, Any Why?
The filters in most power conditioners can result in "current-starving" of amps which is why many manufacturers recommend plugging their amps directly into the wall outlet. Source components are less demanding current-wise and may benefit from a c... 
Have you moved away from full range to standmount speakers + subs?
Had floorstanders that worked well in a large listening space but not so good in a small one. My quasi-nearfield listening position just didn't allow enough distance for the drivers to blend properly. Problem was solved when I switched to standmou... 
Amps In Wall Or Conditioner?
"No current starving on ANY amp I put on the Puritan. Puritan advertises the same thing. I have put a 400 watt class A/B amp on it. A 55 watt pure class A amp on it……you get the idea. Always sounded better than plugging into my upgraded audiophile... 
Amps In Wall Or Conditioner?
"Love the Niagara 1200 paired with an AudioQuest Tornado power cord. Compared it to a Puritan 156, and sold the Puritan."The Puritan has a series inductor in the AC supply to every outlet and can, under certain conditions such as dynamic (changing...
