    Most Insane Tweaks Thread

    It's a waste of time rebutting any of Chu's statements. I have learned from reading his posts over the years that he is always right(in his mind at least) and that no-one else can post an opinion differing from his without receiving his always humerous rant. And dribble, not drivel is what I...

    Most Insane Tweaks Thread

    I haven't been on this forum in a while but it seems nothing has changed. Chu is still posting his own arrogant dribble on this forum. :thumbsdown:

    I'm a believer! Lp's really do sound better!

    FWIW, I saw Stevie Nicks on Leno last year and Jay actually asked her what format she preferred, CD or Vinyl. She said emphatically Vinyl. :)

    B&W Speakers

    Chip, IMO, the Arcam is a far superior piece of gear. I've owned 3 different Yamaha receivers, in fact I had an RXV-793 powering B&W 603's 4 years ago. I never liked the way music sounded with this setup, sounded really bright. I traded in the 603's for 7NT's, much better image and soundstage...

    Cable HDTV Ugh! - Comcast and Motorola

    I've been on the fence for 3 long years considering either Comcast(for just the past year) or DirecTv for HD programming. I've had my Toshiba DST-3000 for 3 years now and enjoying OTA programming(for free of course)but I want ESPN HD and Cuban's HDNET channel. I also get pixelazation on my SD...

    Free SACD with Nov. 21st Rolling Stone Magazine!

    I picked one up a couple of weeks ago, played, no problem on my Philips 963SA player. The only thing I would point out is that the sound quality of the SACD tracks on this disc are not of the same quality as the original disc, IOW, Pinball Wizard sounds better on the "Tommy" disc than the...
