    Billie says a great HiFi System is needed!

    Most young people hear music via earphones or smart speakers. I bet that Billie is referring to that. I don’t think that she is thinking of fancy cables, thousand-dollar internet switches, or ...

    Re: Changing the Finish/Color of your Equipment

    Notice how tall the silver amp looks compared to the black one.
    (Of course they are both the same height).
    Somehow, I feel that more music is coming from the side of the “shorter” amp!...

    Changing the Finish/Color of your Equipment

    I thought of making my M600 look like the new Classe amp (easily doable with a different wrap color) but decided against it just because it would not be optimal for me for aesthetic reasons.

    Changing the Finish/Color of your Equipment

    For quite some time I wanted to change the “look” of my amp. My speakers were black and my amps were brush aluminum. I wanted to change them to black to match the speakers.

    One thought I had to...
  13. Thoughts on Harman Future/present electronics

    Very good observations and valid concerns.
    There are many audio brands under the Harman umbrella. As you have noted, several of the technologies developed by one of those brands have been...

    The most important thing is the quality of the musicianship. That is, the artist, the orchestra, the performance.

    Don’t know and don’t care about Gates political affiliation. But the video that you posted is typically associated with the far-right conspiracy theory political spectrum. Enough said.

    Re: Corvette ZO6 .........

    Because the technical arguments for a better Corvette with a mid-engine were well established since the 60s.

    One could argue (shortsighted view of course) that if a car is selling fine despite...
  19. What do you hear different using Balanced XLR Cables?

    It is not too complicated.

    Technically and objectively XLR cables are less noisy. They are engineered/designed to be that way.

    Subjectively (i.e., “my ears tell me”) it is whatever one...

    Re: Corvette ZO6 .........

    Because in the 60s, Zora Arkus-Duntov the “Father of the Corvette” wanted to build a mid-engine but GM corporate (the suits) did not want to invest in it. His parting words when retiring from GM in...

    Great looking car! Still surprised that it took GM more than 50 years to come up with a mid engine Corvette. Very glad they did!

    Re: Beware of smart TVs

    I should be surprised but somehow I’m not.
    By the way, Apple just released their new iOS that has some privacy barriers built-in. They must be good since Facebook is fuming about it.
