One of the callers was offering to buy an amplifier - the other was looking to buy some Kenwood drivers. The latter followed up with an e-mail. I haven't been approached to buy any items - all calls came from (assumed to be) buyers. I never respond to any of these with a phone call. I know the scams...

Geez - I know that - but why are they contacting me about stuff I (or 3dB) have absolutely nothing to do with? It's not like they're responding to one of my ads at all. Most dealers (sellers) have their contact info readily visible - why am I getting these messages from all these Americans? It's all...

There's a guy in the USA (Raffi) who left me a message on my cell (how he got that is beyond me and this kind of message from the US has been coming to me at least once a week lately - twice to-day!! I may have a word with admin to try to figure this out.) Anyway - he wasn't specific about the model...

Interesting, maybe but the disc/download doesn't tell you where the loudspeakers should be placed for best results. That's where the talent and understanding come into play. J. Absolutely! I am a member of a certain audio enthusiast group on Facebook where I might not have posted this link with 'Th...

Oh geez - don't get me started!!! The perils of having a small fix-it shop... Wire - check Headshells (esp. DUAL) - check Cartridges (esp. Shure V15) - check Vinyl - check Compact Discs - check Tubes - check Speaker drivers - check Turntables - Oh! Got rid of most of those - finally! Uncheck Small t...

Seeing you're in Montreal perhaps a quick chat with Graeme at Coupe De Foudre or Mario at Audio d'occasion might be in order.

Saw that via a Facebook post - and immediately shared it to an FB group who embrace the 'frugalphile' mindset. Love to see those guys get all worked up!
And I can't afford much of what was cited in the article - but I sure do enjoy reading about it.

On the first Sunday of each month (with occasional exceptions) the "Dead Vinyl Society" (based out of Edmonton) engages a local bar/restaurant to host a "Bring Out Your Dead" record digging event. Vendors are invited to bring out a couple of crates of vinyl to offer for sale/trad...

Back in the old 3dB store days we did a similar type of test - using WAV, FLAC rips and the original CD.
WAV sounded best to my ears, most of the others involved preferred WAV, a few couldn't hear the difference.
