    Bespoke Audio TVC Passive Preamp - An Unassuming Star

    Am I suffering from hallucination? I bidded this old cd from eBay. Rostropovich's cello was rather too soft/mellow/slow on my Bent Audio copper autoformer passive preamp. The Bespoke Ultimate Silver improves the resolution, freq extension, imaging and attack a lot yet retaining all the...

    Yet another groundbox, but this Setchi is quite special

    Agree, I listened to a few switches and routers of Netgear and they were not my cup of tea.

    Yet another groundbox, but this Setchi is quite special

    Asus routers are reliable/durable and reasonably priced. Mine had been used for 8 years before breakdown.

    Yet another groundbox, but this Setchi is quite special

    I just found a new use for the Setchi small groundboxes. My home old Asus router (placed in the study room) died 2 wks ago, after in use for 8 yrs. So I bought a new WiFi6 AiMesh combo : Asus RT-AC86U twin pack and installed them last week...

    Bespoke Audio TVC Passive Preamp - An Unassuming Star

    At that shootout gathering, the Baby Ref V2 was obviously better than the V1, even the V1 owner had to admit that. And everybody present at the gathering agreed that the Bespoke Copper was the best of the group. It excelled in term of musicality yet retaining all the hifi factors of the Baby...
