lol , one format i don't have R2R sounds like R2-D2 , 8track not interested , R2R is not cheap so i give it a pass unless a good model is brand new in a box for £100 and the tapes film soundtracks i doubt many was produced , i give it a pass , vinyl i only use the technics turntable once in every few months so doesn't get used that much
R2R is for p*nis factor @ the top shelf. :D
 
biblical signal , unless its a transmission voice from god himself
otherwise purest signal that is just about comparable to my water distiller making the ordinary tap water more purer than holy water which i guess they use tap water that has all those impurities in the water

i still not tested speaker cable with voltage meter and frequency testing direct electronically to see for myself , although i did do this test last , no year ago
may have done these tests at school , water is electrical conductive

Distilled pure water does not conduct but impure water does.

i think you missing something there may have misunderstood what i mentioned , never mind about the water lol
i may try coke cola next see if adds any sparkle fizz to the sound :cool:

I could use a London Dry gin with a tiny bit of tonic water in a beer mug full of ice right now. :D

Probably will introduce harmonics in your neurons, and your walking will loose linearity after some of them. But no issue: with enough of gins, Yoko Ono could sound as Aretha Franklin :cool:

anyway we have to stay on holy track here have a drink and think of , holy signal , its getting me thinking tenth dimension

I had a nice R2R back in the day. It's tweakyness almost equals vinyl. LOL
Biggest issue is unless you do your own live recordings, getting quality pre-recorded music is soooo expensive.
I see some rips of CD on 7 1/2 ips 7" reels being sold for around $65 each, Why bother?
Big 11" inch reels of 15ips studio quality live recordings are in the neighborhood of $500 to $1,000 each. :eek:
Much to rich for my blood.
 
Funny comment, surely a pure audiophile will buy an entire house for his pleasure !
Not as unusual as one might think.
With $100k-500,000 speakers becoming fairly common today, the building of dedicated music rooms
or a house with one inside, isn't a big step for many to take. We have a few here and if you comb the posts of sites like
AVS Forum you can find many more. Even a much more modest costing system (under $50K) could benefit enormously
from a custom listening room design.
The stuff an audiophiles dreams are made of. :p

Anything less just isn’t true high fidelity. : - I

yeah , yes that is expensive , did it or could it have 4 track quad stereo capability

I’ve just red some posts in an audio forum where someone recommended not to buy any DAC for speakers over 100k $ because the “enormous revolution that DACs are experiencing this years and if one spends 10k on a DAC it will be a risk of being obsolete next year”
 
Think if I had just spent £100k on speakers, I'd be extremely thankful to get a SOTA DAC for £200...
And very thankful (and somewhat doubtful) that it'd be obsolete in one year tbh...

The post advised to spend not below 10.000 on the DAC if you’re on the 100k level… probably the man spent over 3.000 € on the cables :rolleyes:

My old RTR? No, simply a 7" 7 1/2ips deck Pioneer RT 707.
All my early Quad sources were LP based.

How absolutely ridiculous. The lunatic fringe gets crazier by the day. :facepalm:

A few well placed acoustic panels could made a bigger-better-more audible change than just about any
DAC upgrade/swap since 1990.

No doubt.

Finally got round to hanging 3 acoustic panels behind my L/C/R speakers as it's my least well behaved surface. Opted for 4" deep as I had space...

Did they worked well? I have a problematic corner behind my speakers that always return excessive 100-300 Hz energy.

I love the colors, the link redirects to a Europe distributor :cool:
 
The addition of the panels was definitely not a night and day difference for sure. Think I can notice a slight improvement in clarity in the mids/highs. Mathaudio RoomEQ (or Pioneer MCACC for multichannel) deals with room/lows pretty well already. Along with a bunch of furniture.
Reckon theoretically the panels should have improved things, even marginally, whether immediately noticeable or not.

Humm, I’m irrationally against EQ speaking about the holy signal: if I could avoid completely reflections from the wall I could do it.

But I think this will be a very expensive cost in materials, and my girlfriend will put me out of home
