    Wine thread - what are you enjoying?

    Just finished a bottle of Duckhorn 2019 cabernet. Delicious. I have to say, though, that I'm increasingly dismayed at the decision by many California producers to release cabernet very early - as young as two years after harvest (Caymus 2020 has been available for several months now)...

    NAD M23

    It occurred to me, while re-reading this thread, to ask myself whether I'd take the M23 in trade straight-up for my C298. And I wouldn't. It wouldn't be worth the time and hassle of removing and replacing the speaker and input interconnects. The M23 is certainly prettier, though. ETA: I...

    If you've ever owned a SAE MkIIIC power amplifier, you've probably tripped a breaker. I owned one. So, there's your answer.:oops:

    Whenever this business of "pride of ownership" comes up, my brain fogs over a bit. To the extent I have pride about anything in my life, it's entirely unrelated to anything I own. It may be accomplishments, it may be care for less fortunate people, it may even be living life ethically (as I...

    GR Research B24 AC Cord Review

    I regard having my posts flagged "for moderator review" on other audiophile sites as a badge of honor. And one site banned me altogether. This site is another matter entirely.

    Is the entire audio industry a fraud?

    OK, but what does it DO?

    Is the entire audio industry a fraud?

    What exactly does it do? Can it be explained without reference to either Niels Bohr or Max Planck?

    In all honesty, I've had such poor experiences with longevity of USB cables that I can't really criticize people who buy "audiophile" USBs simply in the hopes of finding something they don't need to replace in 6 months.
