    good or better sounding “black plastic crap” (BPC)

    “That Sansui has the most awesome 80's graphics. Takes me back” Unfortunately (since it is BPC after all) the middle plastic frame that surrounds the readout and buttons on the Sansui A-1200 is missing on mine. I considered making a custom replacement out of a nice piece of wood, but decided...

    good or better sounding “black plastic crap” (BPC)

    I reread this and see I used the word “sweet” to describe the sound of the JVC A-X7 integrated. I dont even know what I meant by that (guilty). From what Ive read about the A-X5, 7, and 9, they are unsuspecting really nice sounding amps. I know the A-X7 is. But they are silver colored plastic.

    good or better sounding “black plastic crap” (BPC)

    The Pioneer counts, the Sony doesnt. Im glad you posted it, rule bending allowed for sure. There is so much great gear out there that I/we have no clue about. Yes those are the CDM-1SE speakers that I purchased in 98 at Wilshire TV and Stereo in 1000 Oaks, CA. Zero problems. I couldnt...

    good or better sounding “black plastic crap” (BPC)

    First, I understand that anyone who has been in this hobby for a while and listened to a wide variety of gear, including BPC, realizes that just because the front face is plastic and the unit is black, does not automatically mean it sounds bad (maybe some do, that’s fine, I understand). I do...

    Monster Death Grip connector vs. Topping D30

    Game over. I could not believe how stuck this was. I was ready to get out the Dremel cut off wheel when off it a few pieces?!?! I have never encountered a more brittle metal in my life. The 4 missing pieces broke off as I was pulling it off. The half of the middle piece that is...

    Just wanted to say hello and to express my surprise to find this lovely place.

    Welcome from Ohio, U.S.A. I love German stuff, like Simichrome metal polish, older V.W. Westphalias, and the microphone in my avatar. Cheers!

    Welcome MB! I see you’ve got the workhorse Tascam DA20-MKII DAT with the great transport as well as the ability to defeat SCMS. And a lot of other killer gear. Glad you are here!

    HiFi Tuning Fuses - What's your take?

    Has anyone used contact enhancers? Thoughts? I havent used the Tweak! in probably 20 years (couldnt even find it when I looked for it yesterday) and while I think it might have audibly improved the sound of my system, I cant say that I heard an improvement, sounded the same to me.

    Hello from Eastern Washington

    Welcome Airframer! I really like your style, that is a fantastic looking system that Im sure sounds sweeet. Ive got some Advent Heritage that I really like, though yours look noticeably up the ladder from the Heritage. Cheers.
