    Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice

    While I deeply respect her sheer talent and the effort she put into making music, I never liked the music she created - at least the stuff I am familiar with (mostly all the hits).

    Power Response and the last dates of the Magnepan 30.7 Road Tour

    While I really appreciate Magnepan loudspeakers and in my lifetime I have enjoyed many listening sessions with them in ideal settings, must of what Mr. Diller claims in this video is unrelated to the actual performance or, worse, flat out inaccurate.

    An Interview with Andrew Jones ELAC's speaker designer formerly of KEF & TAD

    So, I have watched the video a few times and am struggling to understand what he is trying to say - mostly because I developed my ears and skills from the opposite end of the field than Mr. Jones. I developed my understanding of the art of reproducing music from the music creation world where...

    What are you watching via streaming?

    I was a passionate Doctor Who fan until life got in the way of my ability to really pay attention in my fandom and stopped watching when the Peter Capaldi doctor turned up. Tonight I fired up Doctor Who with the 2nd Capaldi Christmas special and was immediately reminded of the genius and...

    This isn't a political thread, so I will only state the issue I had without much explanation and we can create something in the politics section if we want to get into it. 1) They represent ALL Christians as either evil or ignorant sheeple. While do not specifically state they are representing...

    What are you watching via streaming?

    I loved it as well. I have a few quibbles about the typical Hollywood take on certain institutions which most Americans respect, but that's what I expect from most entertainment, so I generally get past it.

    Flying Colors - a new supergroup

    Partly it is because of people putting g the wrong music in genre playlists on Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, and other group-based streaming channels/playlists. When someone chooses a "prog rock" channel on some online service, they should hear prog rock, not some prog rock and some sorta...

    Flying Colors - a new supergroup

    There is always overlap in genres. Can we call The Who or Supertramp prog rock because they made longer concept songs with changing styles between sections? Does Wings fit the prog definition? Three members of Flying Colors are prog gods, one is a blues-rock guitar God, and one is Baptist music...

    Flying Colors - a new supergroup

    Okay, they have one long song, but that isn't the definition of prog rock. Most of their music is straight ahead traditional Rock and Ballad Rock.

    Flying Colors - a new supergroup

    Flying Colors isn't prog rock, and they don't make 8 minute songs.

    Edge Diffraction: Real World Examples

    More data for the same speaker above, this time including the tweeter and woofer... Once again, the diffraction issues start at about 800Hz, then get their worst in the 1kHz to 5kHz range, then go away in the treble. Since humans are most capable of hearing the most detail in the range of...

    I am interested in this and I'd like to learn more, maybe a public forum isn't the best place to have this discussion, but bear with me while I ask some qualified questions. Help me out here, and this is not meant to be negative or facetious in any way, how does admitting that you have...

    Edge Diffraction: Real World Examples

    Really heavy acoustic absorption material on the face of the baffle, something which absorbs more than 3dB of acoustic energy at frequencies as low as 800Hz and up to the highest treble (the ribbon tweeter will have a worse issue with in this design). Another decent and more cosmetically...
