Experts Corner < ..... Think Tank / Re: Chasing my tail
« Last post by malloy on February 17, 2019, 10:22:36 PM »
So, when it comes to head phone cords do we ever hear what they really sound like? Or do we just try to get a good sounding cord that never gets to settle.

I've been wondering the same thing. But how would you remedy this? Would a super stiff cable or a headphone suspended on some sort of immovable rack/stand do it? I'm thinking some kind of harness that would lower on your head but that would be very impractical.

Wes Montgomery ‎Ė Road Song

Jazz guitarist gets the Muzak treatment, that's too bad. Then I looked it up and learned this was his last album before dying of a heart attack at 45, that's what it sounds like, great technique but devoid of emotion. Well, only $1 at the Q-town flea market so can't complain.

What is the sound of no wire bending? :-|

Toslink F/O is notorious for sonic aberrations while being moved.

I picked up the IsoAcoustics OREA Bronze footers a couple weeks ago (from The Cable Co) and have 3 of them placed under each of my Devialet Expert Pros.   I'm not going to say I heard an amazing night and day improvement, but I could discern a more open and deep soundstage pretty much right from the start.   There was also a more delicate extension in the top end.   They seem extremely well built and attractive to look at.  (I also love trying tweaks that DO NOT require "breakin" ;-)  Overall, pretty nice bang for the buck footers.   Now I'm toying with the idea of using IsoAcoustics GAIAs under my speakers to replace spikes in Herbie's fat gliders (on hardwood floors).

I read a lot of good reviews of the IsoAcoustics products and my experience with the OREA Bronze confirms it.   Worth checking out ... http://www.isoacoustics.com/orea-series/

Quinn Sullivan: Midnight Highway



Qobuz 48/24 Streaming

Searched this out on the recommendation of a friend. This is the third album from this now 19 year old blues guitar prodigy who at the age of 10 was on the road opening for Buddy Guy on his Summer East Coast Tour.

FYI, album is more of a rock based blues that tradition Buddy Guy type blues, but boy can this kid play.

And, you gotta love a 19 year old kid who is releasing his music on vinyl....   :thumb:

Anecdotal Evidence / Thailand and Laos Trip Now
« Last post by mresseguie on February 17, 2019, 04:24:06 AM »
Iím in Vang Vieng, Laos now. Just ate pizza at a foreign run pizzaria. Damn but it tasted great.

Natural beauty abounds here. Limestone mountains, rivers, lagoons, caves. The women are stunningly beautiful and so sexy. Iím here with my wife for those of you with dirty minds. Unfortunately, thereís a helluva lot of smoke as well. A lot of Chinese tourists making a racket. Imagine their faces when I ask them to tone it down in Mandarin.  :shock:

This is the wild west. Almost anything goes here. Pay the right amount and you can get Ďití - drugs, women, girls/boys, etc. No audiophile shops.  :( Perhaps the pedophiles arenít in this area, but they are in VienTiane.

Amplification and Preamplification / Re: Do We Need Linestages ????

Both of my tube preamps make my music sound more pleasant. I prefer to have a preamp over having a DAC/pre combo.

Does having the TV plugged into the Digi do the same?
Nope, sorry Don.  The Depot goes on the other branch circuit (phase) to assist in neutral noise and contamination.  Donít give up.  Weíll talk.
