Shunyata is one of the largest collections of snake oil in the so called high end audio business. They show internal photos of the wires going into some big potted black box. Of course the internal...

In this context, it's not possible. You will hear about passive gain associated with antennas, but it's not really passive gain either. You are simply tuning the antenna to a narrow band of...

That type of design and construction is expensive. That's why it's not done in most A/V receivers. One large board is cheaper to produce. If it becomes obsolete, then buy the latest model. That's how...

Yeah, I did that but they tend to be slow answering on their forum. I thought since MiniDSP is monitoring this thread I could make a second request. :)

It will also take some time for the encryption to be cracked. Historically, these cracks are in the form of leaked information, not some genius with a super computer in a second bedroom.

Yes, on the BR disk. But I'm referring to the uncompressed mastering side. At some point the home video master goes to video tape. That's 10bit 4:2:2 only and also has light intraframe compression to...
