    Wifi streaming or is BT AptX etc good enough now?

    I'm guessing it would have to be a pair of powered speakers with one of them acting as bluetooth receiver and then a tethered connection to the other speaker.

    I'm guessing the big red plastic X is the cause of the bad sound. :) Yea, I see a ton of these battery powered bluetooth speakers, (most with leds) in all of the stores.

    How to wash an amplifier board?

    Make sure it is safe on all plastic. The WD40 mentions to test it on plastics, so do not use it.

    Tube-based video display

    Cool project ! I used to have a Nixie-tube voltmeter and a frequency counter that I purchased at a garage sale when I was a teenager. Got a decade or so of use before they started to fail. I always liked the forward/backward movement of the numbers.

    Page 174 of the Denon AVR 3400H manual mentions the ability to adjust input level +-12db to match the devices output. Maybe that will help.

    Pool & patio speakers

    These Dayton Audio 6.5" 2 way are really great speakers and will save you lots of money. Surprising good low end. I have been driving 2 pairs hard for over 6 years along with a 10" powered Dayton Audio sub-woofer and many guests have said it is the best sounding outdoor system they have ever...

    Weird problem with my KH O110 studio monitor.

    Make some measurements using your DMM to check input/output voltages.The LM377T is the TI version and the LM377SP is the ST Microelectronics equivalent. You have a best case scenario with a working version to compare. Here's the pinout:

    Absent for a While

    Same here. The "Help me pick a new DAC" threads do grow old as well as the "You must buy Genelec and use room correction to fix your problems". Christ, it makes me wonder how any stereo before Genelec and room correction every managed to sound good, which they did. Do I have to spend > $10k to...
