2018 was a year where, between my law firm, my ailing parents and my not-for-profit activities, I was working 75-hour weeks and I had little time to write reviews. However, I never stopped checking out new components to try and further improve my system.
I’ve recently started a phased retirement, and am finally able to write reviews of the components that impressed me the most during the last 18 months. This also enables me to write about components which I have had in my system for long stretches, so for the foreseeable future my reviews will be based on long-term listening experiences.… Read the full article

Writing this article takes me back to when I spent inordinate hours on opamp rolling DACs. I dabbled in it initially in an effort to see whether swapping them had any appreciable effect. That turned into a veritable extended study, with dozens of hours spent comparing first solid-state opamps and then discrete opamps from three different manufacturers. The entire affair was most worthwhile and confirmed once again that lovely rewards come to those who dare to embrace change and the hope of something better.… Read the full article
Let’s get my bias against higher gauge speaker cables out in the open from the start. I am not a fan of higher AWG (thinner conductor) speaker cables. Nor am I impressed with higher AWG power cords. Audiophiles have their preferences, and mine is toward lower AWG (heavier conductor) speaker cables and power cables.
Bill O’Connell of Morningstar Audio many years ago sent me some old Bell Wire 12 Ga. solid copper, cotton cloth dielectric wiring to try as speaker cable.… Read the full article
