    Show us your vintage cassettes!

    Growing up in Springfield, MA, freestyle had a heavy influence on me in the late 80s.

    Camera Sales Continue to Plummet

    Love the Z6! Economics are much better than an equivalent Sony. I finally moved to FF after shooting Oly/Pan m43 for 6 years. All SLRs prior to that and I'll never go back to a mirror. Having said that, the D850 is very hard to beat.

    Do any of you enjoy speakers with bad measurements?

    I auditioned a few speakers for my family room prior to settling with the Klipsch Forte IIIs. They don't measure perfectly, but they produce a great deal of sound with very little effort in my large family room. I was convinced I'd end up with the F208s but I learned that perfect measurements...

    100% percent agree with you on how Dirac effects soundstage at least in my near field set up.

    Archimango Builds a NC252MP

    Having build the exact amplifier a few months ago using the Ghent kit, I was happy to come across this blog post. For about $450, this kit should compete favorably in price/performance and yes, I wish it had a trigger. An Inexpensive Hi-Fi Class-D Stereo Amp for the 2020's: Hypex nCore NC252MP...

    A Darker Side of High Academia

    I'm in the middle of "Poisoner in Chief" and although I had some understanding of MK-ULTRA, etc, the things the CIA did to people during the Cold War is absolutely mind blowing. I can only imagine what we'll learn about the "research" going on in the present.

    Any experience with Ropiee and/or RopieeXL?

    It's worked without issues for a few months and set up is much, much easier than dietPi.

    Do you have enough hair in your ears? Grow some more! (Re: Hearing Loss)

    I'm 48 and can't hear above 12k hz. Unfortunately they're no study sites near me although their home office is.

    Loudspeakers that are neutral, dynamic, full range, and LOUD

    The Forte IIIs play very, very loud with little effort. Not sure they're as neutral as many would like, but are certainly dynamic. (They'll be tucked in tight making room for a Christmas tree for a while)

    Floor-standing under $3k?

    I was interested in the X44s at Safeandsound which weren't on display at the store (along with any Excites) and ended up with the Forte IIIs. I'm sure they'd pull the 38s from the warehouse for you. Ask for Aaron.

    Floor-standing under $3k?

    Pick up a pair of used Revel F206s and call it a day.

    Horn Speakers - Is it me or.......

    Damn, I just brought home a pair of Forte IIIs. Never thought I'd like them, but the amount of sound they produce at low volume is exactly what I need for my family room.

    Hypex nCore vs Class A amps

    I built my own NC252MP with a Ghent kit for about $450 and couldn't be happier. All of the measurements tell me it's transparent and if I'm being honest, I probably can't hear the subtle differences between this and the NC400.

    Yamaha A-1 Vintage Amplifier Review

    Damn! This review is going to drive hipsters to buy more vintage gear. I'll never pick up the old Kenwood receiver I had as a kid at a decent price now.
