My next major purchase is going to be a power regenerator. This device takes AC, turns it into pure DC, then converts it back into steady AC. Power is a killer on TV's and the sound quality
of your system.



my guess is that "Tesla" shows up somewhere in the product name.

You guys are hillarious, must be Canadians. Pssst, the world is not flat and 2 channel music is like watching a black and white television hooked up to rabbit ears.



I am being nice here, so don't take this the wrong way, but AFI's (that would be the American Film Institute) named Citizan Kane the No. 1 movie of all time. And guess what, It's in black and white.

I enjoy 2 channel audio because I, like most of the people on this planet, and that includes Canadians and Americans, have TWO ears!

I also hear rabbit ears are one of the best ways to get HD signal.

You are correct though, if Mapleshare is going to refund you the total cost plus shipping, maybe I should try a non Home Depot air dried Amish maple board for my DVD player.

Steaks vary a whole lot on the cut, the animal itself..etc but wire doesn't? Hmmm ok

Question for you. How come all the top recording studios, the ones that cater to audiophile type recordings all have high end wiring. I have heard that in Sony's new high end recording studio nearly all the wires are made out of 100% silver, that all wiring has a foot of separation and is of the highest quality.

Like I said, order one and try it. You have absolutely nothing to lose except maybe your steadfast beliefs. I didn't think I would hear any difference and I did. That is why I made the original post.

Anyways..thanks for the responses.

(excluding shipping) provided we receive the item undamaged. Please make sure your returns are unmarred and very thoroughly wrapped.

That's a nice out.

Another thing: there is no way to account for audio memory with most of these products--they all take time to switch out. Power cord. Jumpers. Stands.

Not to mention those jumpers. 30 day money back guarantee only applies if they are "unmarred" and "undamaged". As far as I can tell, you have to damage them in order to install them. Nice.

that would be pretty robust considering most audio interfaces have their inputs about 1" apart. They would have to incorporate single channel audio interfaces into a computer for each channel and then take that recording and import it into a single master sequencing computer.

I suppose they could wire the system so that all wires are in close proximity for about 2" of their length.

Of course, I have no knowledge of this system and am only speculating.

OMG $7250 for speaker wire?

Sign me up for an Axiom A1400-8, Integra 9.8, and Ep500, oh hell lets get 2 EP500's. and some 12 guage wire from the local hardware store.

That is just nuts!
