Re: DAC to the Future

I discovered ferrite rings over 20 years ago - checked a couple TDK brand at a show to try. I find them best on mains cables for digital. Too many can make the sound overly smooth and dull. DSJR has been recommending them for years. I have them on mains cables but the big improvement came about wit...

Re: WTB: Schiit Mani turntable step up

I'm told Schiit have modified them to eliminate the RFI problem. So a new one might be OK.

Re: Speakers

Cubes need to be close to the wall (solid). Moving them to within 6 inches and slight toe in really improved the sound vastly.

Re: Pink Salmon and Artless at it again

Now they are talking about Class2 and double insulated, perhaps some sense will come out of the conversation, Arkless did a good post showing options, it made a lot of sense. But it still seems they haven't a clue about Class2, still blind leading blind. I was talking about this 30 years ago but no...

Re: Pink Salmon and Artless at it again

I think I'm pretty much the opposite to Arkless. Everything that he likes I don't like. Everything that I like he doesn't like.

Re: Write Inside

It's the small number of dealers that use forums to sell product IMO. Plus there are a small number of people who have some unexplained grudge or linked to certain forum owners. I have even had it when discussing NVA on Hoffman. Someone deliberately introducing a trolling post (UK member) that gets ...

Re: Write Inside

The people who buy most of this stuff in the Uk are probably old hi-fi enthusiasts with a bit of inherited cash or an equity release. I think reading the pro Linn arguments elsewhere they are people pretty wedded to the brand. Yes overpriced but only crazy if you head for the top of the range. Alway...
