Stack Audio Auva Isolator
I will be interested in your experience--my understanding is that AUVA w/ spikes will couple (not isolate) the speakers to your concrete floor while your podiums were de-coupling your speakers from the floor--one would think the results would be v... 
Still the demons of GAS pursue me
@mofimadness I understood the attraction of the ADC/DBX joint venture into pink noise generators that you could use to shape a system's sound curve--i used it with sound curves published by various music magazines of pink noise generated in music ...

What if a high end speaker measures really badly?
@audiokinesis With your discussion of on-axis/off-axis, made me wonder if that means these speakers should not be toed-in--ie so listening position is off-axis? or perhaps toed-in to where the "crossing point" is in front of listener?

@mahgister thanks for the humor !  Many all too true...  
I don't get it...Exile on main Street-Blue
@bigtwin --I think you hit the nail on the head:  Professional musicians often hear music from a completely different perspective and appreciate aspects the general public doesn't. I heard Court and Spark before i heard Blue so i like it better a... 
Kind of Blue
I can't pick a #1 because for me the jazz i like at any particular moment depends on my mood and jazz covers every mood you can have But i will mention one artist i haven't seen listed--apologies if someone did and i missed it, but i can listen t... 
Help with XLR ICs.
@tattooedtrackman  Jeff Smith of Silversmith Audio (and Fidelium Speaker Cable fame) recently came out with some XLR ICs--i bought a pair of them 12' in length for around $1700--they are top notch--i still don't see them on his site but contact h... 
The Emperor Has No Clothes!!
Not that the highs were "hot" to begin with but to me the dampened highs sound better YMMV  
The Emperor Has No Clothes!!
I think that's what i found--the drape doesn't affect low F but it does help cool off the highs just a bit  
The Emperor Has No Clothes!!
Oh--also meant to say that everything sounds better with single malt...  
The Emperor Has No Clothes!!
@mdalton You definitely [accidentally😀 ] struck a nerve even without naming names.  I'm in your camp on digital as far as server/streamers/switches not imparting a sound of their own although my Pandora Dac is quite distinguishable from my Mytek D... 
Stereophile review of the $30,000 tekton speakers
@mark200mph --thanks but i was just looking for information about what makes them different from Moab other than the Be tweeters -- must be some other special sauce to get the price where it is...One would think that if they requested Stereophile ... 
Found a Milty Zerostat alternative
@ghdprentice @lewm  I live in Tucson and you're right about static--it was mijostyn who recommended the anti static grounded brush and i use that as well and it works--a little fiddly to set up so that it tracks properly--meanwhile my 80's era Ze...
