    Advice wanted: Taking over an HiFi Store

    A friend of mine had a hifi store for many years. Morphed into a home theater store. Damn good thing his wife is a money manager with strong 6-figure+ income to offset his losses. He's retired now; she isn't. I'm quite certain their net income has doubled.

    I really dislike them, since you asked. :oops:

    Does it make sense to recommend integrated amps any more?

    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)...

    Most aesthetically pleasing amplifiers

    I have to admit I kind of like the looks of darTZeel and Dan D'Agostino stuff, though I'd never allow it in my system.

    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...

    Any of y'all ever tripped a breaker?

    AUDIOPHILES: Are We Buying "THINGS" or "EXPERIENCES?"

    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?

    USB C RECOMMENDATION

    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.

    Bluesound Node vs Volumio primo

    Since one can easily control the Node using a dirt cheap Android tablet, this reasoning has never made sense to me.
