LAT Power distribution strips

The idea that a power distribution strip, even a heavily built one like the LAT can make a difference to the sound, let alone an improvement is ridiculous. Where’s the science behind the claims? LAT power distribution block have in my experience always made a positive difference. The degree of improvement, in terms of background […]

YOU ARE GROUNDED, SON: Turntable grounding opinions?

Hi hoping to be spoon fed some nuggets of advice on grounding from a knowledgable fishie or 2 My turntable has a grounding wire attached to the underside of the bearing assembly, as well as the more traditional ground wire alongside the tonearm cable. I have 2 issues to try and fix – one is […]

POWER CORDS: Neil McCauley expresses a view

Neil, have you been surprised by the effects of different types of mains cable and IEC termination on the sound that comes from electronics driving speakers? I have been rather surprised because I don’t reckon I have anything like the acuity of some of my friends for acoustic things, I will usually arrive at conclusions; […]

PS AUDIO: Balanced is better

Paul McGowan writes … In my mind, there’s no question that between components the best connection is balanced. Balanced cables offer lower noise and better sound. I understand there are single-ended holdouts (wait, we disagree on something in audio?). Perhaps their equipment doesn’t support balanced. Perhaps their cable collection doesn’t include balanced. Or maybe they […]

CABLES: Interconnect length vs speaker cable length

  I’m going to move my system to another room and have more flexibilty in component location. I have two amps, both Perreaux pmf1150b’s powering Magnepan mgIII’s. What is better: having the each amp near each speaker with short speaker cables and long interconnects to the preamp -or- shorter interconnects and long speaker cables to […]

BIAMPING: I remember my delight the first time biamping speakers was explained to me

Paul McGowan The notion of using one amplifier perfectly matched to the tweeter and another to the woofer made such elegant sense. Tubes for the top end, solid state grunt for the bottom. Brilliant. That was at a time when the choices in amplifiers were limited. Big, powerful solid state amps sounded pretty poor reproducing […]

Once the homemade power cable was finished I immediately connected it to the preamp. Interesting.

Once the homemade power cable was finished I immediately connected it to the preamp.  Interesting.  The most immediate thing I noticed was an increased openness without brightness that was never in the design before.  Separation of instruments was greater, soundstage deeper, all the good things you’d hope for.  However, there was a tightness to the […]

COLIN WONFOR’S TECHNICAL CLINIC: Male XLR plugs

QUESTION: I am needing to change the Aeco silver RCA plugs on one of my interconnects for some male XLR plugs. As it is a UP-OCC conductor, I am thinking of getting a plug with some silver plated pure copper connectors. My thoughts were with the ETI or Xhadow. What’s your opinion Colin? COLIN SAYS … […]

COLIN WONFOR’S TECHNICAL CLINIC: Silver plated copper vs copper speaker wires? What’s better? Help!

COLIN WRITES … Ideally one would love to remove the effect of the capacitance completely but keep the Inductive coupling tight as it acts like a common mode choke helping to reduce non musical sound. With normal PVC webbing you have poor coupling. It can be done by loading the PVC with iron but it is too stiff […]
