  1. Very hard for me to listen to this. Some albums, like when you release one of the greatest works in folk history, recorded with some of the greatest ambience ever, should just be left alone to stand for all time. I did not find this very engaging. Must my opinion
  2. Cat Power: Wanderer. Great music and great recording.
  3. Leonard Cohen: "Songs From The Road". Very well recorded and obviously great music.
  4. Kai, Very true. As an old audiophile I am that person that you and others describe and I don't understand because in my situation and in the case of many, it's just too much of a pain in the rear end to compare, especially on some of the selected equipment we choose to own. Tough to teach old dogs new tricks. My dad may he RIP would always buy a Buick. I would ask why don't you look an Oldsmobile, etc. "Because I like Buick". Many of us older "audiophiles" just go with the flow of "components" as we are most comfortable with that.
  5. Well guys, to bring some cheer to this COVID mess, Gilead appears to be having some legitimate success with remdesivir. Phase III trials and compassionate use are showing good signs, especially in the severely ill, just published in New England Journal of Medicine. Let's keep our fingers crossed. This in addition to antibody testing, Abbott point of service testing may get our doors open around the world much quicker than any of us thought possible and buy us time for vaccines.
  6. Well that sucks. Totally agree with Tone Deaf. Definitely will miss him.
  7. He was referring to the FDA's approval for off label utilization which the states would be charged with distributing, regarding "off label" utilization as well as in controlled drug trials as Hahn elaborated on in more detail. Additional "approved" drugs for trial and compassionate use include convalescent plasma and immune globulin, remdesivir, Losartin, as well as some other therapies being fast tracked for study. Yes, one can infer from that clip that he is saying the FDA approved it's use "TO TREAT COVID" but that is not what he meant and it was clarified. Fauci indicated it
  8. Sorry, but his "good feeling" is all he said. He NEVER said it was "approved" and both he and Fauci indicated that people are and can use it off label under doctor's supervision. In fact right now it is on what is called a dual track, being used in "compassionate use" off label as well as being studied in randomized double blinded studies. The people you are talking about who self-medicated did so with fish tank cleaners not hydrocholoroquine. I have no idea whether if "really" works or not but YOU SHOULD NOT be casting aspersions for "misinformation" when that is exactly what
  9. Kudos Alex. Received mine on Thursday. Plugged the LPS-2 at 12v into the ER, let it warm (heat up) for a day. Today is my second day listening. Either my previous switch was broken or the ER is just awesome. I know there will be doubters but I’m thrilled with another awesome UpTone product. Listening on a fairly esoteric system, with CH M1.1 amp, CH L1 pre into an MSB Select with V2 renderer into Gobel Aeon Epoque Fine (small one) with all Gobel cables. Don’t want to piss off the doubters but I’m extremely impressed with the ER. AND while my system is esoter
  10. I can't read your whole post BUT regarding "sound quality being better but not publicly discussing it" issue, let me say, I have been very close to many manufacturers over the years and this is the business of the hobby we choose to purchase from and it is at no fault of the end-manufacturer like Uptone. This is the same with manufacturers of speakers, amps, etc. They often don't have control over what the parts manufacturer are using or should I say changing and these parts suppliers often look for "better" or "cheaper" ways to manufacturer so and end manufacturer like Uptone, Audio Researc
  11. I haven't posted in some time and occasionally drop by to see what absurd threads are getting some attention (and I am rarely disappointed) but this one is up there. As an end-user of Uptone, I have to say Alex and crew have been one of the best I have ever dealt with. If there products aren't to your liking, so be it, but from my perch, they give some of the best bang for the buck and I haven't been disappointed with any of their products and I definitely haven't been disappointed with their service. In a hobby where so many disappoint with service Uptone is definitely NOT one
  12. This is going to be my last post on this forum for multiple reasons. First I am tired of the never ending threads here denigrating those buying systems that most posting here can't afford as well as the constant berating of those with "subjective" opinions, unless of course the subjectivity comes from Chris which all his sycophants would never question. Second, I am tired of the "moderator" acting as some dictatorial figure, determining some of the most vile comments to be acceptable as long as it meets his political leaning; which is his right to do as this is his site, but I don't have to
  13. Yes Teresa, no matter how your "attempts" lack facts. But in today's world, who cares about facts, when you can just "believe and know".
