Most living rooms are not perfect rectangles or squares. Instead, they have open spaces on one end and boxy closed areas on the other. Can you do anything to balance a stereo system in an asymmetrical room?
Systems can often sound good and then bad without anything other than the time or the day changing. What are the variables that determine how a system changes its sound?
Few of us would hesitate to purchase a used pair of speakers or power amplifier, yet when it comes to digital equipment, we seem to be adverse to the practice.
If speaker cables are different lengths from each other, how does that affect the sound? Since electricity travels far quicker than can be perceived by the human ear, what’s the verdict?
What happens if you compress a CD to mirror the limited dynamic range of an LP? Does it sound similar? Closer?
Power conditioners more often than not rob music of its life, bleaching the sound just a little. Power regenerators do the opposite and improve sound, yet they can be prohibitively expensive. What’s a good alternative to a regenerator for someone on a budget?
Loudness controls and audiophiles are like oil and water. Why is that? They often times improve the sound of our stereo systems, yet popular lore has us staying away from them.
Is audio equipment similar to automobiles when it comes to maintaining them? They are both highly complicated and sophisticated systems, so perhaps they need regular maintenance.
Eternal soundcards are often low cost and always a more convenient way to get digital audio converted to something we can listen to, analog audio. But are they as good as an external DAC?
NOS and vintage tubes are all the rage, and they are expensive too. Are they worth the extra expense for our high-end audio systems?
