    Magico M9

    A close friend of mine is in a very exotic business. He literally aids "really rich" people (mostly from China) gamble all around the world. He travels with them, deal with casinos for exchange rates, open private tables, game rooms, arrange opponents for them. Secure their winnings, plan their...

    This Corona Virus Mania is Just Too Much, We All Need to Chill!

    If you go to any hospital in an area where the virus struck real hard, you'll wish you had a zombie apocalypse. These hospitals do not function as normal hospitals anymore. All doctors from all professions work on Covid-19 patients. Doctors working 7/24 on these patients are getting sick (some...

    Good luck with stopping the flow "just at the top" while you have a 5 day blind incubation period with exponential growth. So you have to guess the exact time when the water will be "just at the top", go back 5 days in logarithmic fashion to find the perfect time to isolate people. That's a...

    Coronavirus ...

    Past year's or this year's data about normal flu running its course means nothing really. Death numbers for car accidents are irrelevant. The fear of this new Coronovirus comes from its POTENTIAL, not it's current performance. We see that 34K people died from normal flu in 2019 so what's the...

    Coronavirus ...

    These numbers come from health organizations such as WHO. Yes we can speculate all we want from our living rooms but until more accurate data is present, officials need to act on these. How many people died from this virus without being diagnosed? We don't know that either.

    Coronavirus ...

    At 80+ age death rate is 14.8%. This is scary. Between 70-79 it is 8%. Nearly 1 out of 10 people dies, which is huge. 60-69 it is 3.6%. 36 times the death rate of normal flu. Very dangerous. 50-59 and it’s 1.3%. Still 13 time more dangerous than normal flue but its a fight. 40 and below...

    I hope it does go away at summer an we will all be happy. I have many close senior relatives including my mom and dad. We are on the same side. There WILL be great economic consequences. This is a fact. When we have a virulent virus loose we can't have any conventions, exhibitions. Tourism...

    Munich 2020 cancelled

    "The Flu is likely in more than 200 countries every year and this year alone accounts for 18K deaths in the US alone. P-E-R-S-P-E-C-T-I-V-E. Thank you Wisnon. That just show us how dangerous Coronavirus is if it spreads like normal flu since mortality rate is at least X20 in average. We have to...

    Today, globalization is at its peak. There are average of 100.000 flights per day (200.000 flights/day on peak times). Average age in modern societies are higher than ever. These societies cover big portion of the world economy. Even if this virus spreads like Spanish flu or a normal flu, there...

    Munich 2020 cancelled

    1918, 50 million people died of a flu. Out of 1.9 billion people. We are in a different world, medicine and hygiene is in another level but still. I envy you and I hope you are right. User211, I am trying to share my view on a matter. I am not disrespecting you. I am not attacking you. It’s...

    Munich 2020 cancelled

    30M is just an estimated number with a lot of error margin since we have very little data about how it will react with other parts of the world and how it will evolve. Let's have it as 12M which might be a better estimate. This is a huge number that will have great impact on world economy and...

    Munich 2020 cancelled

    There is 600K deaths per year caused by normal flu each year so why do we make such a big deal for Cornovirus? With the current mortality rates if Coronovirus spreads like normal flu this year 30 million people will die from it. There is a hype because 30.000.000 is a very different number...

    Coronavirus ...

    Normal flu kills around 60K people each year. This is normal. There is nothing to hype about it. Normal flu's mortality rate is around 0.01%. So 60M have flu each year and 60K dies. No need to panic if you already have normal precautions. Coronovirus has mortality rate of 3 to 6%. It is as...

    New Ref 6SE and Ref 750SEL

    With due respect Ayreman, I can't give my new 15K USD Preamp to my local experienced technician and tell him "please replace the crap parts in my gear with the best I can afford/find/fit into the available space". These electronics are designed in a specific way to have a characteristic that we...

    New Ref 6SE and Ref 750SEL

    Modding an already accomplished hifi equipment (or a car etc.) needs serious expertise and knowledge as well as deep interest on the subject. There is nothing wrong with pursuing this path. I am sure its mentally rewarding as well. I have audiophile friends with crazy modding skills. I admire...

    Stereophile Recommended Components: 2019 Fall Edition

    Stereophile's "Recommended Components" feature is 55 years old. It is older than me. I read it time to time to remember what is out there, see if I miss something new/old and never use it as a guide to buy components. I respect it even for the fact that some people are carrying this feature...

    Emm labs DA2 v2 upgrade

    I would never accept a situation where I have to change cables everytime I change sources in my system. I change sources (CD and Streaming) sometimes up to 7-8 times in a single weekend. If Emm is recommending Optilink for best results for NS1, this is a serious problem for most Emm Transport...

    Emm labs DA2 v2 upgrade

    That's not good. But can't you connect the NS1 to the DAC with AES/EBU? That also allows HD resolutions.

    Audiophiles mostly aren’t music fans

    I am also a music lover first and then an audiophile. I never listen to demo albums that has great sound but no real musical content. My system plays 95% of my music archive great. I am amazed every time. Every time. Maybe you just didn't have the chance to try the equipment that really speaks...

    Chinese "Odin" cables

    Yes, I actually believe what I posted. And no, this is not a theory of mine. This issue came up in a Tag Heuer Q&A with a company representative. It was his own words that counterfeit helped them reach younger generations because having a watch on a wrist is not a necessesity in 21st century but...

    Chinese "Odin" cables

    Counterfeit products rarely have negative effect on the original. The original benefits most of the time from the imitation market. No Rolex, Odin, Mercedes customer actually buys the fake product. Only people who can not and will not afford the original buys the counterfeit. Surprisingly...

    Can one find realism in box speakers that cost less than $150K after experiencing dynamics of horns and horn-type speakers?

    We all ask different questions but we try to find the only answer. That’s impossible. After 20 years of Focal, Magico, Wilson journey Diesis was a revelation for me. The case was not that Diesis was just a bit better. Diesis was something else entirely. It was the answer for the question I...
