    Acoustic Revive RTP-4 power conditioner (power strip)

    I have found that the RTP-4 power strips work excellent for mass dampening the components! I put one on top of my nettop and the other on top of my EMU0404 USB, it gave HUGE improvements in low-level detail and clarity!!

    Acoustic Revive RTP-4 power conditioner (power strip)

    I finally tried the rubber feet for RTP4, the muddy coloration is horrible, it doesn't sound transparent. I like to put the RTP4 flat on the table instead, it gives the same sound signature as Magix but is brighter. When I moved from flat table into Magix I got more low-level detail while...

    Bought both Adam A5 and Adam A7 on same day - what to do?

    I have sold my A7 and moved my setup into a smaller area closer to the wall. My RTP4 power strips used to be resting on Feet of Silence and table, I added the built in rubber feet to the one that was resting on the table and heard very colored sound, I like the flat sounding table better even...

    Upgrading apartment into house - which country has the best sound?

    My girlfriend got an international job and said she will buy a house for us in the summer, I would get to decide the location, I would get my own cellar to "work" in. I will have random papers on a desk (with numbers to confuse her). Outside the room I will hang a "do not disturb" sign. Inside...

    Need more resolution than K1000 - which headphones to buy?

    Which headphones should I buy to get more resolution than K1000? I want the most midrange resolution possible. Is electrostatic the way to go? Are they better than K1000? What about TakeT headphones?

    Should I buy this bed with curtains? - EMI/RFI shielding in disguise

    It is Christmas Eve and we woke up 5am to travel to her place with two rabbits and their large cage, people in train and supermarket looked at us with strange faces. Then we went to purchase a 3rd rabbit from someone at a mall. A 4th rabbit is on its way too. I'm worried now because my apartment...

    Noise Harvester behaving erratically at Christmas

    It must be the neighbor's Christmas lights which are making my PS Audio Noise Harvesters blinking erratically? Does anyone else have this problem?

    What's the biggest sacrifice you made for headphones?

    Many girls dumped me because of my K1000. With my new girl I have buried the K1000 inside a box in a secret location, so far so good. + YouTube Video ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

I have prepared it good, rabbits are gone, it is quiet, now I want to tweak! Any ideas how to tweak with my current setup? I will open up my Adam A7 and replace internal...

    Ubuntu Amarok vs WinXP cPlay

    I made a blind test video and scored 99+%, the accuracy dropped at the end because of fatigue. It was 99,9% at one point, this should be proof enough. The differences were as big as WinXP vs Ubuntu. However, these differences are very far from the HUGE differences of tweaks, most of my music is...

    I had 4 options to choose from and scored 4/4 which is 1 chance in 256. Then I got fatigued and dropped to 5/6, then 7/9. I'm in the process of learning how to calculate the odds with math (permutations and combinations), I know how to calculate when there are 2 options, but now there are 4, how...
