    Neumann kh 310 + hk 750 vs kh 420

    Hi This forum leans a lot toward Genelec and for good reasons but looking at the performance of the KH310 with its analog filters and no use of DSP, I find it to be at the upper echelon of speakers reviewed here. I would like to see in a reviewed here what the combination of a KH750 + KH310...

    One crook helping the other (Fremer helping Paul sell his snake oil power regenerators)

    HI I make sure of never watching these video. Clicking to watch does increase their score on YouTube. Paul has been around for along time and he continues to sell and make money. As for people like Fremer I used to think of them as innocent but have come to see them as active participants...

    What’s special about ‘digital coax’?

    Hi @Richardk3000 Please re-read @DonH56 post above. Digital connection between the streamer and the DAC is not at audio frequencies. The digital stream on which the audio signal "rides". the transmission, is at Radio Frequencies between 1.5 and 4 MHz ( don't hold me to the exact frequency...

    From a quality point of view, does it make sense to DIY loudspeakers?

    Tenet

    Forced myself to, for a second time, re-watch to, kind of make sense, of this movie... My conclusion? A bad movie. Being from Nolan and featuring two good actors in Washington and Pattinson, critics went soft. Any less famous director would have been pilloried.

    FWIW.. Copied from Stereophile I would suggest to ignore the response in the bass from 150 Hz down ... in all Stereophile measurements... Wilson Audio Alexx MSRP $109,000/pair Wilson Audio Sabrina $17,000/pair Magico S5 MKii Seems to be a bit better... Now for comparisons purposes...

    Most important channel and speakers in Home Theater

    A center channel is ESSENTIAL for movies. The oft-repeated, but not factual point, that phantom center channel is enough doesn't hold scrutiny. Someone posted some times ago, on ASR, the the FR differences between phantom and discrete center speaker. It wasn't even close, to use an expression...

    Dynaudio Core series

    There are a few “sure things”. You buy Genelec, Neumann , JBL, Dutch & Dutch and you’re likely to be a happy dude or dudess once things are dialed up. if you can go for one of those. Spend the dough. there is such a thing as Paralysis by (over) analysis

    Abyss and cables

    Hi This person sat down and realized that people can sell anything with the proper spiel and spins. He has to know that someone is currently vending their vagina scent !! Meanwhile there are some people (most of those can't hear past 10 KHz) but manage to hear the sound differences of various...
