    22 channel Soundstorm prepro to be installed what amps do you recommend?

    @amirm in your review of the a800 you said, "Don't use it on sensitive speakers you may hear some hiss (although turning down the gain may help some)." It isn't clear what you consider a "sensitive" speaker, is there a rough guide in efficiency rating that would be where you would worry this...

    Rubber isolation feet worsened speaker performance?

    Those results were from the phone placed on the floor, which seems to indicate less transmitted vibration into the surroundings.

    Decent headphones for a friends son below $200.

    https://www.rtings.com/headphones/reviews/best/studio I like this site, they do objective as well as subjective ratings. Their budget studio headphone recommendation is $49 on Amazon, ignore the screen that looks like they don't have it and click more buying options to see it. Or if neutral...

    Linn Basik LVX and an MC cart?

    Old Formula 1 video. Nearly an hour long so only watch if you are interested in fairly historic F1. May be spoiled for some by me being in it

    The video shows as pulled for copywriter reasons. I'm sad to not be able to see it. Fascinating subject.

    Thread closures and controversy versus reality. Spoiler [Fact on the ropes]

    This site seems less about musical expression and more about musical reproduction. Good use of irony however.

    Thread closures and controversy versus reality. Spoiler [Fact on the ropes]

    Thread closures and controversy versus reality. Spoiler [Fact on the ropes]

    My 2 cents as someone who ran my own hobby site. Politics are poison to constructive discussion. Religion isn't quite as bad as fewer people seen as passionate and uninformed. My site banned all discussion of both topics. It was hard enough to keep discourse civil without that distraction...

    Round-up of small, battery USB DAC/Amp/Bluetooth receiver devices

    Review and Measurements of Yamaha WXA-50 Streaming Amp

    Interesting. I thought I'd seen some differences but I could be mistaken. Again just asking for clarity, if base boost is off then both are flat including sub?
