    Oh, man...if you're in the Bay Area some time, let me know.

    Re: Cable direction

    Copper's properties and characteristics are dependent on it's crystalline structure, and how that crystalline structure is produced during refinement and how it is drawn during casting. Its...

    Re: which network cable

    The switch-mode power supplies that power many networking devices create the problems described above with respect to high-source impedance leakage current, which will result in noise on the...

    Re: which network cable

    No, it's not a placebo effect. Copper Ethernet cables are susceptible to RFI, EMI and common-mode noise. Moreover, if a device e.g. an Ethernet switch, router, NAS is powered by an SMPS, then the...

    Re: Subjective N10 vs N20 Opinion

    I agree, and think the N20 sounds fantastic.

    That's a really gorgeous system, Jerome. Congratulations!

    I can only imagine how sublime it must sound.
  7. Re: Anyone else place your deposit for a Tesla Cybertruck?

    No. Tesla has amongst the worst reliability and quality in the automobile industry. Last time I checked they were one up from the bottom.

    Just one report: You WON'T BELIEVE how many PROBLEMS we...

    Re: Rega Planar 10 TAS Review

    Probably.

    Rega originally had a "surround plinth" for the RP8, that you could place around the skeletal plinth so that it would look more like a conventional turntable. The dustcover was placed...

    It was my mistake.

    Now, as you suggested, can we move on?

    I do. I go through my articles thoroughly, multiple times, including spell check, and grammatical and usage errors. But here is a FACT: there are NO perfect products or processes. They don't exist. ...

    Pro: It sounds really good.

    Con: The "manual" if you can actually find it, is awful. Numerous grammatical, syntax, and usage errors.

    Linn Klimax DSM/3 in the house

    My editor, Robert Harley, recently asked if I'd be interested in reviewing the Linn Klimax DAC/Streamer for TAS, so of course, I said, "Yes." Doh! :p

    It arrived today, and it's a real beast....
  15. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    Those Lampi DACs are pretty sweet, aren't they? ;)
  16. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    It depends. Three feet work great on turntables, because its impossible to rock a tripod.

    Also, my Lampizator DAC comes with 3 feet as the standard set-up. Works well in that application, too.
  17. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    You're correct, the Iso-Pucks or Oreas won't work for this application. I'm with you, thinking Orea 1 or Orea II will be the correct footer.
  18. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    Mike,
    You could also potentially use 2 of the new EVP Platform, one under the front of the sub and one at the back, rather than four, one at each corner. I'd price them out and see what's least...
  19. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    A great introduction to TRIZ is the book, And Suddenly, the Inventor Appeared by Geinrich Altschuler.

    A great place to start with EVPs is under a subwoofer.
  20. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    There is almost always more than one way to mediate a transfer function. This is one of the underlying principles of TRIZ.
  21. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    if you're referring to me, I don't work for A/V Roomservice. I've bought their products at their prices current at the time, just like anyone else.

    Furthermore, I'm not defending anything with...
  22. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    The bottom line is that car prices, durable goods, whatever, over the long term, only go up in price over time, never down. Same for audio products. Look at the price of the Linn Sondek compared to...
  23. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    Bottom line is that for any product, prices always go up, they never go down. Doesn't matter what the industry is. Just look at the prices of used cars these days.

    No one's arm is being twisted...
  24. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    The EVPs are two steel layers that sandwich a fiberglass layer. The wholesale price of steel has doubled in the last year; you can do the math from there.
  25. Re: AV RoomService-EVP (Equipment Vibration Protectors)

    I just spoke to Norm at A/V Service today and in our conversation, he mentioned that since the pandemic hit, the price of steel has gone up considerably.

    That statement is backed by this article...
