    The best sound I have heard was found at Jacob Heilbrunn's house.

    Not trying to stir a argument but, Wow! Dart a niche product? I don't agree with that at all, if Dart is niche so is everything else in your system, please explain more? As far as price, let's face it , most of what we lust for is way overpriced in the audio world. Dart is basically in line...

    The WBF humor and joke thread.

    WHY WE MISS RODNEY DANGERFIELD: With my old man I got no respect. I asked him, "How can I get my kite in the air?" He told me to run off a cliff. I went to a massage parlor. It was self-service. A girl phoned me and said, 'Come on over. There's nobody home.' I went over. Nobody was home! A...

    Finally I have my own NHB-18NS (plus my 108)

    Congratulations on your darTZeel combo! I have enjoyed the darTZeel products for many years & have no desire to change. If I may input a couple of future recommendations: 1. Upgrade to the newer preamp , major upgrade especially to the phono section, xlr inputs, & batteries! 2. Look into the...

    Rio 2016 Olympics - next Summer Olympic Games in Brazil

    NorthStar, Thank you for sharing, great reads, vids, & pics! I love the Olympics & watched as much as I could but IMHO NBC does a horrendous job in their coverage! What a joke! Thank God I was able to watch some events on another channel.

    Need help picking $30k speakers

    I would have to agree with rockitman as well. There are many a great speaker to choose from in this price range ( used ) if you can find them. I would throw the Evolution Acoustics MM2 & 3's in the mix for sure. IMHO better than some already mentioned.

    Doshi V3.0 Tape Preamp

    Also own one as well & echo Steve with matched ERCC801's. More macro & micro detail. Great bass control. Not to knock the other tape pre's but the Doshi fits my system.

    HI Christian, Koncept make these to attach to a rack or wall. Just go to their web page & do a search. I have mine attached to my SRA rack with no problem. My others are floor standers like Mike's with wood blocks I made for stability on my carpet.

    Reference tapemachine

    I don't know if I totally agree with the ( Sterile ) statement on the ATR102! I'm able to switch back & forth between the stock electronics & the Aria, I find the Aria adds a bit more life to the recordings. The stock electronics are very good as well. By no means would I degrade either as we...

    1/2 inch Studer bliss

    ( AS I STATED) Instead of us debating or (ATTACKING) which deck sounds the best, we should maybe channel our energy to push for more source material in the tape domain! I have heard the UHA many times in show & a home setup, wonderful tape deck & Greg should be applauded for pushing the...
