Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I know that this is off topic but I have to share a Hidden Netflix gem with my friends. Check out Anohana. I recommend Japanese with Subtitle version. The music in the opening and end credits is also excellent.

    So I've been playing around with a turntable the last little while, first an older one from the 80'd and now a newer model. It's kinda frustrating, but enjoyable. Mind you I'm looking at it as a hobby. And I'm doing all my tinkering while listening to Qobuz over my schiit and Zu rig and it's quite enjoyable. I would be very frustrated if all I had was vinyl. It's definitely not flick a switch que up some music and relax.

    That's a pretty broad claim for brand vs brand.. hoping you've had lots of experience with both brands.

    You are right, and it is Jason's thread. No matter what you do or say someone is going to gripe and we do have the ignore feature. :ksc75smile: I have no skin in the game, if I think something like the cable cooker does some good, I will say that.

    I just don't understand why there needs to be a multipage discussion on cable cooking in here vs. the Cables forum or the Sound Science forum. If there's enough interest in cable cooking, why not start a dedicated thread for it? If someone actually wanted to find info on cable cooking, wouldn't it make sense to make it easy to find instead of burying it in Schiit Happened?

    I know, there are many, many, many other off-topic discussions running through here and you are far from the only one engaging in it. That doesn't mean we should add to the noise.

    HA!...you and me both :beerchug:

    Totally understand this comment...

    Back when I had audio systems with loudspeakers, I literally had three setups - one for acoustic music (coherent - Quad, Maggies, etc.), one for rock/blues (big sound - JBL, Infinity, Klipsch, etc.), and a home theater (2 subwoofers :ksc75smile:)

    So glad that the headphone market took off!

    I don't understand the anger over noise on this thread. That noise is the charm, it's what keeps the thread and community vibrant.

    If there is noise that bothers you, just keep on scrolling past it until you find some noise that is music to your ears. I scroll past all of the Pi talk, most of the Roon talk, and Cat talk. I do miss Wink though. He had a certain charm.

    Yes, if I wanted to listen to concert-volume levels of rock music something like Tekton's would be perfect for that. If I wanted to listen to intimate acoustic performances then a more coherent system would sound better. And that's not to say that either system could not be used for both, it's just one of the thousands of audio compromises we all choose. It's all about taste and preference as there is no perfect system.

    Just order some Zu's. They do it all well, and none of it perfect. (Yes that's just an opinion) I'm sure that @FLTWS would scoff at them for classical.

    sorry but I have far more people pm’ing me that I should post it. Ignore me and you will not see it. I am doing the same for you.

    I've actually spent time with the Druids and with their MTM system - what was that one called? In any case they do sound good but they just didn't "do it" for me.

    Well said

    Yep! Funny you mention that...my first foray into more coherent speakers was the Dahlquist DQ10. They weren't terribly inexpensive and an engaging listen; wouldn't go 'LOUD' though.

    Ended up trying Stacked Pairs along with two subs...definitely loud but lost the coherence! That's when I decided I 'needed' two separate rooms -- one for Acoustic and one for Rock/Blues. My wife was very patient back then even when I built out my third audio room (for HT) in our basement :)

    Hard to say as I've never heard them, but good sounding designs can come in all formats; dipole, bi-pole, mono-pole, flat baffled, step baffled, electronically time aligned, point source or line source. And at some point in time I've owned about all types in all configurations imaginable.Usually, however, less is more.

    You might like these then, no crossover other then a capacitor to act as a high pass filter. Almost as simple as you can get.
