    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    Not making the case for the Celtics. Gasol is a solid old-school center. Lumebring and slow but a force in the middle. Defend yoru basket and put enough stress on penetrators and centers alike to open up the game for the gazelles... That is what Kareem was in some ways ( not comparing them...

    OK I 've had it!!!!!! If the Celtics manage to grab M. Gasol they win the East and will be in the Finals for many years ... I will also offcially become a Celtics fan ............. NOT :D

    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    True that but a simple question: Curry is likely the third best player in the NBA in the mind of basketball fans ( LBJ, KD being #1 and 2 respectively, There could be a debate whether Russell Westbrook is not #3) but ... who has had the better Finals in the past 3 years between Curry and Kyrie...

    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    Those were the kind of deals only the Lakers would make ... when they had the functional Kupchak + West + Real Buss trio ... Now with Jeanie and whomever passes for GM at the helm .. they are lucky to have an adequate core of young players who may or may not be up to the hype .. For my part and...

    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    Hi I am not a Celtics fan. I am foremost a fan of Basketball. I can't believe how anyone with a modicum of understanding of the game would not see the Kyrie trade as a great one for the Celtics. They haven't had a player for the ages for quite a long time and did not have one on their roster...

    2018 Toyota Camry Photo Leak ?

    Hi I can't believe this thread went on for so long... I am a Toyota fan, we can call them boring all we want, they simply work... so well that we can forget about them.. Better than any other car ... The new Camry is out there and it is as boring as ever and likely as reliable :D...

    Blade Runner 2049

    I agree with this assessment. Somewhere this particular and highly interesting character did get lost in the movie... he simply went off as the movie progressed. Else, a great movie. I believe that we make too much of our memories of the original Blade Runner. This one matches it in all aspect...

    Blade Runner 2049

    Hi Saw it and it is by all measure (IMHO) better than the original.. there are a few head scratching issues about the plot, especially the reliance on replicants in a world so technologically advanced but the gist of the movies, the metaphor about what it’s to be “Human” is never lost. Slow...

    Apple, in rolling out OS 11, may be the beginning of the end for MQA

    Color me confused too. M'Truth Can you point toward the source of your "fact" ? For .... education purposes?

    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    Deserved IMHO as for Melo .. Playing for a bad team would do that to you. The Knocks seem to be mired in that swamp-like state. They are simply bad year after year. The Lakers are not faring any better. I want to see Ball being all that.. the buzz on him is loud.. But with his father seemingly...

    Further thoughts on MQA....is it all it seems???

    Hi There is something here that is to me heartening: Intellectual Honesty. I congratulate DaveyF for having the courage to reverse or question his position. Something I would like see more in Audiophile debates..heck! in debates! Here is a person that came off a demo that bowled him over and...

    MSB Select II arrival

    Hi The issue is not that of the tool or technology used. There were some crappy recordings made during the Golden days of analog. It is the skill of the practitioner that matters. I have somewhere here on WBF referred people to the level of photography attainable with something as cheap and...

    MSB Select II arrival

    By no means do I want to turn your discovery/arrival of the MSB thread into a analog vs digital bloodbath. What you term "broad strokes" are too often used when some speak about analog. Digital for many doesn't compute. pun intended. it is clear from your observations and that of others that it...

    MSB Select II arrival

    Hi Earlier in this thread, I dared to suggest that "Digital had arrived'. My comment were met with what I perceived as annoyance. Not hostility, just a few being somehow annoyed at the comment. It is becoming clearer and clearer as the thread advance that indeed this is the case for many...

    Hearing test

    Hi I had a similar test and have pretty good ghearing for my age ... up to 14 KHz or so .. then drop like a rock from there ...15 KHz is perhaps -20 dB down and 16 KHz -40 db I would suggest not to compensate your system to your hearing problems. You hear what you hear , the way you hear it...

    Hurricane Irma

    Hi One of the strongest Cyclones ever. Cat 5 are rare and extremely dangerous. It seems to be headed toward Florida. If it gets there unabated, the amount of devastation could surpass and by far what Harvey has done in Texas...

    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    The scary part of this is that Curry still hasn't played a Curry-esque championship series ... Nor has Klay Thompswon. KD did and is likely to continue to do so ... The forgotten elements in the scenario for NBA supremacy are the Celtics and San Antonio. They are not standing around. In...

    MSB Select II arrival

    Milke This product seems to bring a paradigm shift to your audiophile existence. I am by no means saying you will henceforth prefer digital to analog but it seems to me that with knowledge removed this would be near impossible ( I could take away the "near" if you allow) to distinguish the...

    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    See my earlier post on the subject... I have rarely seen someone who's more difficult to guard. If he learns to pass the ball a la CP3 he could be a player for the ages. No one can guard him one on one and he can shoot on top of that. Russel Westbrooks is more athletic but a good defender such...

    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    Hi I may be reading too much into this. Do people realize how stellar good/excellent Kyrie Irving is? How much better he can be if he learns to pass the ball? To play a bit of defense? I mean LBJ is great and all that but do anyone honestly believe that they could have won last year without...

    good science and sound reproduction..our values.

    Davey I don't think the issue is Science , it is that this doesn't seem to be an Apple to Apple comparisons... mastering trumps format differences in most cases. Do you know the provenance of the MQA you heard? As compared to ...

    New Album & The Beginning of Basketball Season

    If that were to happen then I will hate the Celts and Ainge in particular even more ... What he's shown: Patience , vision and leadership .. used to be what the Lakers were about with Kupchak and Jerry West in the background ..

    MQA discussion

    Spirit This could be a case of mastering. Not of intrinsic format sound. The same apply to all the MQA kudos. Alow me skepticism

    MQA discussion

    Davey If it is a "discussion" you should expect , welcome and even wish for dissenting opinions. Here comes one :D MQA is NOT lossless. it is a lossy method of encoding, (see Wikipedia Article HERE) IOW regardless of the claims , it loses something. Given the same EXACT original recording and...
