    Spec Sound Processor

    Pure snake oil... Those folks seem to think the wood their amplifier enclosure is made from affects the sound quality. :facepalm: The website contains a lot of BS. Run the other way... Martin

    Very interesting phono preamp. If my setup wasn't fully balanced I would be very interested in giving it a try. Martin

    Douk Audio DAC-Q11--The first USB DAC with Switchable ESS9038Q2M and AK4493?

    Utter silliness. The price is insanely cheap but the execution is an exercise in futility. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/topping-e70-velvet-akm-4499ex.40183/page-10#post-1540531 Martin

    Long tapered dampening tubes à la B&W Nautilus? :D Martin

    Billie Jean dance

    Yes, in addition to the slight off center pressing you can easily see the tonearm bopping to the beat, especially that first hit in Billie Jean. I'll have to see if my Moerch UP-4 / Grado Sonata does the same. Martin

    Amir vs Haters

    All one needs to discredit the haters is point then to the impact Amir and this site has had on the audiophile community. People more openly discuss objective measurements when talking audio. This site and community almost single-handedly pushed Schiit and now even PS Audio into buying and...

    does anyone listen to Taylor Swift? tell me what the draw is

    I like Taylor Swift's music. I especially like her later stuff - Folklore and Evermore; Midnights and The Tortured Poets Department are also nice. I watched the Eras tour on Disney+ before I canceled my subscription and thought it was well done - she is a consummate showwoman - she really knows...

    New Purifi 9040 now out on the Purifi Web site!

    Those Purifi modules are pricy but I'd hardly qualify $50 as "A lot more expensive." I'd go DIY and get what you want. I think you'll find the Modu cases less expensive than Ghent and at least as nice. Martin

    Wrong. My amps were built for half the price of retail. My 1000ASP monoblocks ended up costing $639.33 each. The 1200AS1 monoblocks were $866.01 each. I have detailed Excel build sheets tracking every penny. Martin

    beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro Headphone Review

    The DT1990 Pro ($399 refurbished from Beyerdynamic-usa on Ebay) was my first foray into headphone upgrades about 5 years ago. I previously had a pair of Sennheiser HD598 ($169 new). The DT1990 were very nice and a step up from the HD598 but they only whet my appetite for better headphone sound...
