    Tekton M-Lore Speaker Measurement Update

    A few years ago, Washington enacted the Uniform Public Expression Protection Act (UPEPA), which would apply to any lawsuit brought against Amir arising out of any of his reviews here (or at least any lawsuit brought in a Washington state court on this issue). UPEPA provides for a method of...

    Legal fund for Reviewers/Erin?

    As a lover of vinyl, let me explain the vinyl renaissance by noting that no one has ever really explained fashion trends.

    As a lawyer, please let me implore people not to rely on ChatGPT or any other LLM AI for legal advice.

    Legal fund for Reviewers/Erin?

    I just saw this thread, and I haven't read all of it. I'm a lawyer licensed to practice in the State of Washington. I recently successfully defended one SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) brought by a company because of negative Google reviews. I very much dislike garbage...

    13 dBHL of hearing loss. Continue using IEMs and headphones?

    Let me suggest that this is a question for an actual expert in the field. Talk to your audiologist or other person who is qualified to offer diagnoses and prescribe treatment.

    The Truth About Vinyl Records

    The Walmart near me is selling a Washburn-branded Strat-style electric in a single-single-humbucker configuration. It comes in a set with a 10-watt practice amp, cable, gig bag, stand, extra strings, and picks. I have bought a bunch of cheap Strat-style guitars over the past few years, and most...

    The Truth About Vinyl Records

    I don't know that Amir's methodology itself is flawed. He is transparent about it, and he responds to people who have raised questions about his methodology. Replication attempts would help us decide the question of the reliability of Amir's methodology. But that isn't a flaw in his methodology...

    The Truth About Vinyl Records

    I have worked (as a lawyer) for companies that were certified by Underwriters Laboratories to conduct their own measurements of their products. The various standards organizations (UL, Canadian Standards Association, ISO and the like) provide a valuable benefit by establishing at least some...

    The Truth About Vinyl Records

    The scientific method assumes that all individual observations are subjective and thus that any individual observation may be unreliable or invalid. We try to achieve objective observations by comparison of multiple subjective observations, thus eliminating observer bias. This is why replication...

    The Truth About Vinyl Records

    Bernard23 makes some very important observations. I'd like to amplify on his comments, especially his closing sentences: All of us like to think of ourselves as being able to respond neutrally to inputs from the world that we inhabit. We believe that we're actually objective observers. And...

    Nice turntables. Attached picture is an absolute requirement.

    The Bergmann is beautiful. I have an FFYX T224 with an air-bearing linear-tracking arm, along with three older Japanese linear-tracking turntables (Technics, Hitachi, and Luxman--the last of which is very nice). With that said, I usually listen to turntables with pivoting arms. My current...

    Vinyl Heads, Take Note

    I'm 65. I grew up shooting guns, running power saws, mowing lawns with power mowers, and other such things without hearing protection. I have vicious tinnitus. I ain't fooling' myself at all: I know my hearing's shot, so I ain't gonna claim I can hear a danged thing particularly well . . .

    The Truth About Vinyl Records

    Ain't it the truth. So much '70s US vinyl sounds pretty bad. To me, a lot of it has a sort of "boxy" sound. That poor quality has sent me back to records from the '50s and early '60s. I've been very impressed by the sound out of some of the Dot and Command disks that I have. Enoch Light had...

    PS Audio Ultimate Outlet Review

    If I were working with the company, I'd be thinking about its obligations under Section 15(b) of the Consumer Product Safety Act, 15 U.S.C. sec. 2064. I'm not stating that the company has any such obligation at this time. I'm stating only that, if I were advising the company, I would want to...
