In reply to:

this is a book for the beginners and experienced listeners



Brandon,

I believe that you and I both belong to the category of experienced listener with a decent amount of knowledge. I understand you haven't had time to really get at the book, but skimming through it, have you already found any nice tidbits that you never knew or thought of before?

If your answer is yes, I will go buy the book.

If this were the WWF, I believe your reply would be called a "smackdown." Yowch!

:-( .. well like i said, i havent read through the whole book ive just read a few pages here and there but i agree that he isint the last word on the more techical stuff. because simply, he reviews equipment, he doesnt design and build it. But this is the first and only book ive read so far on the whole audio subject and i figured that it was a decent source of information covering a wide variety of topics. But i will certainly be more weary of what i read when i get to those topics.

lol . smackdown.... i was thinking the same thing. lol no thats ok. i can admit if im wrong. i have learned some things from here. most of it is just sorta reinforcing what i already knew, but there are aspects of audio like a record player and its parts that i am not the most knowlegeble on. And some stuff that i might read in someones post or review when they are describing the sound and i might be like wtf is that supposed to mean. but i mean, go to the library and check it out and see what you think for yourself. But the 30 bucks was worth it for me to fully understand ( or so i hope ) how a servo sub works and about analog stuff and like that. Alot of it is basics that im sure most of us know but it still has some things that i did not fully understand.

No worries mate.. I was just funnin with ya.. We have all heard those adds for the newest greatest thing for your car, and that it will get 50% better gas milage on one thing, and 30% on another, etc, etc.. And by the time you add it all up, you would need to pull over every couple of miles to dump out some of the gas, to keep your tank from over floweing, eh .. haha..
As a matter of fact, I was interested in a little review of one or two items from the book.. Like Sushi posted, if you really come up with something that you think works, let us all know.. We are ALL pretty much chomping at the bit to find another excuse to spend money on something to do with our stereo/home theater gear... !! (Even if some of us won't admit it !) hahahaha

I certainly hope everyone already has cable elevators...



No, these are not mine.

And we wonder why true audiophile systems always look like crap...

Are those black boxes signal enhancers or something? They look like something out of Star Trek, or maybe a faith healer's props...

I cant believe it... on the one hand, we hear all speaker cables are *for the most part* no different, then we hear all cables are different, and *X* brand is the best, and now this... Cable elevation!

I mean how long till our shielding has/needs shielding - or our cable elevators need elevators.

Maybe someday our speakers will each be suspended in mid air, supported by anti-gravitational fields enclosed in an Anti-Standing-Wave force shield - only then can we have the cleanest sound

Maybe I'm waaaayyyy off track, these things just might be the most important piece of my HT system, and I'm just too ignorant to know any better - then again, I doubt it.

Yes Peter, but I was a bit distressed looking at the picture, since I fear that the audiophile isn't enjoying all the sonic benefits he deserves because the positioning isn't sufficiently precise, as suggested in this wonderful site .

clearly a severe case of audiophilia nervosa.
