    Ok, after closer inspection of the lens assembly when I got home, I did find the solder bridge tucked up underneath it. It was already separated. Either this is a rebuild or someone did it at the...

    Alright, the show is moving forward. I decided to do the power cable upgrade on the Marantz CD5001 being that it will be torn apart for a optical lens replacement. On that note, I found it funny that...

    The DynaMat logic makes sense. The only thing I could quickly think of that may or may not be important is heat dissipation. Having used the different flavors of DynaMat in the past, I remember it...

    Hello. Thanks for the advice so far.

    Herm- I never heard of that. I've used Dyna-mat in cars for a long time but never considered using it inside an electrical component. What or who inspired you...

    Dskip: I am currently looking at the AC-14's. I started a new thread for that challenge.

    Hello everyone. I hope everyone had a good holiday and I’m sure some will agree, I’m glad it’s over! Now back to spending money on my own toys.

    F1: I understand the concept of increased resistance. So basically, by increasing the resistance of the left speaker by using splices and thinner wire, it changed the sound? I would think that the...

    Finally got an old laptop up and working while I shop for another, so pictures will be posted shortly. In addition, I have some interesting observations that...

    Thanks for the pointers. I will post some pictures of my listening area soon. Damn laptop died on me. I agree that imaging and sound stage are very dependent on the recording. When I make a small...

    Hello all and thanks for the pointers so far. I have run into a problem and maybe someone can point me in the right direction. I have been troubleshooting a particular problem with imaging. I have...

    Yeah,just researched VMPS. Ended up at audioC and just had quite the sad read. No, I don't think I'll be finding many of those speakers on CraigsL. There is a reason that they are rare. People keep...

    Ah! VMPS, now see? Thats an avenue I had not looked at- or better yet, the idea of an externally amplified subwoofer. That definitely opens a few doors of the mind. I think I became a little...
