  1. WTB forum vanished?

    It seems the WTB section is a bit of a lonely place lately. Looking down the list, there are not too many views to each posting compared to other sections.
  2. Audio Music 833M mono blocks

    Could be handy to have with the current state of world affairs. At least you can keep playing your tunes.

  4. I bought a Peach Audio balanced power supply for my equipment. Still using it to this day and think its great. I posted about it here: LINK The only thing about those Airlinks I read about, is once you load them up with components, they can starting humming a bit. Not sure if this is most of them as you only read about the ones that post. That is why I bought one made by Tortech as it is designed for our conditions in Australia, hopefully a bit better for us. The buzz I got from one amp was fixed with upgrading the amp's internal toroidal transformers to ones that were shielded.

  9. Flat boring sound

    Could just be the Stanton 681 is not the best cartridge for your setup. Worn suspension? Could try a inexpensive cartridge like a Audio Technica AT95e or a Ortofon OM10 to see how they go.

  12. Audio myths and misconceptions

    I bought and tried many many speakers in a few years time. Sometimes having 3 or 4 sets at a time. What I found is, it was so much fun! It was like listening to my music in a different way each time I changed over. Pretty well all of them were great but different. I think some people could find their enjoyment drops away over time listening to the same stereo and changing or some of it over, reinvigorates that enjoyment. I certainly had a lot of fun and enjoyment doing it. I learn't a lot in what seemed to give me the lasting enjoyment. I have slowed down now but you never know.
  13. Audio myths and misconceptions

    I am not sure why others need to be so vocal and want proof all the time on what you might be hearing and posting about. Just try one product for a bit and then the other. If you hear the difference, then keep it and just keep enjoying your music. Simple. I get that measurements are what some people look for and it is important to them even in choosing a product over another, but others might just not be that interested or fussed about it and are quite happy to just listen and make a decision. Maybe we could have one section for subjective listening and reviews and another for technical and measurement reviews.
  14. Audio myths and misconceptions

    I think you could only say that applies with the selected few speakers they used in the test. Unless they tested 100's of speaker brands, then you might find a pattern.
