Common courtesy? Perhaps that was missing. But, so was common sense. Instead of all the discussion and hand wringing about a bit of gas money, you should have read the danger signs and just committed to go and get it! In addition to that, you can't test a unit to make sure it's working right, in a p...

Wow!!! Another one bites the dust. So very sorry to see yet another Audio retailer close their doors. Planet of Sound's East Toronto (Danforth Ave. & Broadview) location has permanently closed it's doors, this week. It seemed as if the physical location was a good one? But, I guess that online ...

It would not be the first time that a guy doing a cable demo was caught tweaking the volume up to make the music 'more clear and revealing' when it is actually the volume that is letting you hear the details better, not the cable.
This is NOT a cable issue; it's a fraudulent demo issue.

Do you have the top pair tilted back also? If so, the high frequencies are flying-by way over your head.
It is common to have a stacked pair mounted vertically or have the top pair tilted forward so that they are perpendicular to the floor aimed more at the listening position.

Preamps are really important, particularly phono preamps...as you found out with your analogue system.
You can change TTs and cartridges all you want, but if you have a crappy phono preamp, it wont make any difference.

likely the recording and engineering quality rather than the vinyl as the issue. The digital versions are lousy and highly compressed. EXACTLY!! Her first two CDs sounded like CRAP - ear-bleed inducing low res and/or badly mastered digital. The vinyl LP is going to sound any better if the digital m...

I wouldn't have thought that to be an issue. How many "wanted" ads are returned when you perform a search that you can't simply ignore the 1 or 2. Seeing a Wanted ad didn't bother me either. Suppose I'm logging on to research an item I'm going to sell, looking for ads showing current aski...

You have proof that your EMT was accepted from the email that he supplied you. He is responsible for that and has to accept that you have paid a $1000.00 deposit. If he doesn't accept responsibility, he's defrauding you. Is this guy an authorized dealer for that make of speakers? If so, demand that ...

If you checked the CAM rules, you will see that you are not allowed to remove your photos after a short period of time. In the past, bad sellers have removed pictures to cover-up their fraudulent behaviour, so CAM does not allow that. However, you can get photos removed if you contact the moderators...

It’s getting harder and harder to trust anyone these days. Hopefully that doesn’t stop people from trying, as there are good people out there. Actually complete opposite for myself. EMT rocks. Feedback is what makes or breaks dealings for myself. You are a transaction away from getting scammed. EMT...

That B&W tweeter is more than just "a tad bright" in the highs. It has a suck-out in the low treble and exaggerates the rest of the high frequencies - not exactly a reference tool for judging anything.
That cartridge - especially before it's broken-in properly - will also sound edgy.
