For perspective, consider that the 50" Pioneer Elite 111FD plasma had an MSRP of $5,000 when it came out back in 2008. All things considered, the 9500's price isn't that wild to me. Would I like it...

I've heard and read a lot of good things about Isotek. I watched their videos for Audio Advisor and enjoyed them. I haven't looked at their power cords specifically, though. I already have the...

You'd need to see my thread for the whole story, but this is not me going after hype. This is the result of an in-home test where I swapped out one interconnect for another one and the difference in...

Franin, I've been tired but okay. I need a week's sleep, I think. As for gear, I'm considering how to manage getting some new power cords, interconnects, and even a Pioneer BDP-88FD player; that's...

I have two BD players, with audio going through the stereo and to the TV respectively. The player going to the TV, an Oppo 83, is for quickie viewing when I don't want to fire up the entire rig to...

I'm happy with my 111FD Kuro, but had already decided that a flat OLED would be the preference if a replacement were necessary, assuming OLED longevity isn't a concern at that point. And 55" is the...

Update on the above. ^ ^ ^

As it turns out, I needed to make some changes in the way I played the Moody Blues disc, though there was no problem before.

A question for those who use their 09 in a 2-channel setup. In the "Speaker Setup" menu, do you use "Stereo" or Lt/Rt?

I think I have a problem.

As another tweak, trying to get more impact out of the sound of my tubed C2300 preamp with DVDs, I took my one pair of Transparent MusicLink Plus interconnect off the...

Until now I didn't think interconnects made much of a difference unless they were at the pre/power connection. An experiment changed my mind.

Yes, another reason I've been slow to bundle my cables is that the interconnects are currently Audioquest King Cobra, which have a red/black jacket and are easier to distinguish. The Wireworld power...

For me, the clutter slows me down on those unfortunate occasions I have to squeeze behind the setup. This is what the rear of things looked like two years ago; it's pretty much like that now.

The DACs are different as well. The 88 uses a (presumably) higher-grade chip (ES9018) versus the 85 (ES9011).
