  1. Re: Why no one has ever measured the speed of light

    Somehow I knew someone was going to reach this conclusion… [emoji17]
  2. Tidal’s New Lossless Tier Says Goodbye to MQA

    Let’s get our ducks in the right order.
    The most important thing is the quality of the musicianship. That is, the artist, the orchestra, the performance.
    How it was recorded and the mastering...

    Re: Unaccountable Kings

    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: Unaccountable Kings

    Really? Your best intentions aside, this has all to do with politics.
    I bet you can get more comments about this topic at Parler.

    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...
  6. 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...
  8. Re: Love music? Cancel Spotify and join a vinyl subscription club instead

    Those vinyl services must be a labor of love for the owners. I can’t imagine how any one of them can ever make any money.
    In this day and age, we want something now and not having to wait days for...

    In other words, XLR cables are better. [emoji51]

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

    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.
  12. Re: Spotify is raising prices for lots of its plans

    I bet Spotify will add an extra dollar or so to their rates once they start streaming CD quality music.
  13. Re: What do you hear different using Balanced XLR Cables?

    The key word here is “short”. For short cable runs, even though technically and objectively balanced XLR are proven quieter, you might not be able to (subjectively) hear a difference.

    It is worth...
  14. Re: What do you hear different using Balanced XLR Cables?

    Objectively speaking (not subjective) balanced XLR connections are less prone to interference and noise. So yes there is a measurable difference and is why it is preferred for use in recording...

    Re: Beware of smart TVs

    None of these devices are hack-proof. However folks always need to take some precautions like changing the default password on these devices and avoid using easy to guess passwords. Common sense goes...

    Beware of smart TVs

    A projector is a “dumb” display.
    If you connect an Apple TV or similar device to your TV via HDMI and choose that HDMI input in your TV, you do not need to use the “smart” features of your TV. Your...

    Re: Beware of smart TVs

    No need to educate me either about those issues; I have read about them and have reached my own conclusions, thank you.

    No wifi, no printers, no Apple TV, no internet of things? Extreme? Yes, I do...

    Re: Beware of smart TVs

    You cannot turn back the clock. We live in a world that it is more and more intertwined with technology.

    You just have to do your research and be smart about what technology you choose to adopt.

    Re: Thoughts on Turntables and Vibration

    A big thank you to Dre_J for helping me finding a solution to the issue. The source of the problem was rumble coming from the TT. The low frequency noise produced by the TT was retro-fed to the TT...

    Given that it is rare, then it is overrated, which supports my point.

    Just to add... In the same box I found several DVDs (mostly movies for the kids when they were little). I put them in a box to throw away.

    Thoughts on Turntables and Vibration

    I once had my TT suspended from a wall but never played it that loud since I was living in an apartment.
    I also once had my TT in another room separate from the speakers and I played my LPs very...
