    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Is the 8361a big speaker? We have Amir directly compare them against the Salon 2 which I'd consider a medium sized speaker. Big to me is the K402 plus theater horn :)

    Walker's "Little Wonder" (Quad ESL 57) - Your Opinions/Experience?

    I think I've been doing it wrong, I've been looking for speakers that sound good with me in the listening seat :D I suppose I could shop for some speakers that 1) sound great when I'm not in the room (I've heard my fair share of speakers that make me want to leave the room, do these qualify...

    Walker's "Little Wonder" (Quad ESL 57) - Your Opinions/Experience?

    Stereophile JA's measurements of the Forte III. This is exactly how how heritage Klipsch products have sounded to me (fwiw I'm in my 30s). Now you can do Google searches for their theater waveguides designed by Delgado to see the stark differences. JA of course has some nice flowery language...

    Carver Raven 350 Review (Tube Amp)

    We have dozens of members on ASR that prefer the sound of a sharp rock dragging through plastic over digital, so I would indeed say that the area of psychoacoustics ala Toole's research on speaker measurement preference or Olive's Harman target curve preference (far from flat) for headphones is...

    Walker's "Little Wonder" (Quad ESL 57) - Your Opinions/Experience?

    "Sound coming through a window" I'm not sure if I have the right imagination to picture that lol. I was listening to this CD after lunch (this pianist recorded the very best Beethoven Piano Sonata cycle I've heard in terms of performances) and it was a very solid, firm, in room sound. The...

    Carver Raven 350 Review (Tube Amp)

    That's the great thing about science, any real scientist will tell you we're always learning and gaining more insight into things :) At least a handful of times a year I send off cases to a major academic center because I simply don't know even though I'm a subspecialist.

    EAC uses Error Correction on last tracks of my CDs. Bad pressed CDs or Bad setup?

    Where are these CDs pressed? It could be a wider issue than just the record label. Some pressing plants just do not press good CDs. You can look at the hub on the back of the CD.

    Walker's "Little Wonder" (Quad ESL 57) - Your Opinions/Experience?

    I'd suggest Klipsch's theater/professional line over the legacy products. The former are designed by Roy Delgado who studied under Paul Klipsch but are much more designed around science/measurements. You can read Delgado's posts on the Klipsch forum, he never throws PK under the bus but if you...

    Walker's "Little Wonder" (Quad ESL 57) - Your Opinions/Experience?

    I have ESL57 rebuilt by Wayne Picquet, I'm always on the hunt for replacement speakers to have in several living rooms. Interestingly the two speakers I've heard that got closest to them in terms of realism are K402 constant directivity waveguide with horn midbass and Kii 3. All three are...

    The best analog reel to reel studio tape recordings ~ 13 bit equivalent?

    Not sure if the time stamp will copy over to the forum's software. It's at 11:18 if it does not.

    The Truth About Vinyl Records

    Probably worth saying what genres of music this is for. I like vinyl for pop and rock music, but I get a much better illusion of live with two channel digital than I do with vinyl, simply because I know the sound of real instruments (attend the NYPO, BSO with somewhat regularity and chamber and...

    My March Sointuva Speakers

    From a sustainable point of view I'd say that is a good reason to use this wood

    My March Sointuva Speakers

    I'd be wary if for no other reason that I'd feel like I'd need to have independent measurements done to make sure I was getting a product that was 100% based off what was shown in the other thread.

    Vertical mouse. Who has found a good one?

    Yup I use Realforce R2 TKL (ten keyless), if I wanted a numpad I'd have it to the right of my mouse hand. I had a HHKB2 which is basically 60% but I was using an awkward hand position with FN plus layer keys as my hands are on the large side. Much prefer to have the full arrow cluster, page...

    Vertical mouse. Who has found a good one?

    Thanks, I'll be ready to spend more once the experiment is up with this cheapie vertical mouse. What made you go with the Evoluent over the very popular Logitech Vertical/MX Vertical?

    Vertical mouse. Who has found a good one?

    Giving this a bump as I'm interesting in hearing more. I was starting to get some nagging pain in my right thenar eminence, which fortunately aren't sx of carpal tunnel syndrome. I've been using a cheapie wireless Nulaxy vertical mouse from Amazon for a few days now. We'll see if it makes any...

    Mobile Fidelity Analog Vinyl Controversy

    Why not just buy the SACD that will be released at the same time? Unless you think that DSD256 sounds so much better than DSD64 that is on the SACD? For the people that aren't completely abandoning Mofi now they are saying DSD256 is better than DSD64 so they will still buy the LP. I personally...

    Chord DAVE Review (DAC & HP Amp)

    I think it was DCS Vivaldi that John Atkinson gave one or two (or three) wows to at the end of his measurements.

    Stereophile's snide editorial on ASR and Amir

    I see, this is why we use meta-analysis when deciding what becomes the new (or unchanged) treatment/management regime, it filters out the outlier/junk studies.

    Stereophile's snide editorial on ASR and Amir

    Character "flaws" lol, no it's called enjoying life. Last night I was relistening to the adagio from Beethoven's op. 59/2 on my ESL57 and it was among the very best 15 minutes I'd experienced that week, nearly moved to tears. Of course thank Beethoven for that, but it was in no small part due to...
