    Not that those two pastimes are mutually exclusive, mind you.

    Wasn't in the cards this weekend. Hopefully soon.

    lol @machone it's not that easy when your computer setup shares a room with your TV loving wife. Guess who gets priority on sound?

    Get that women a TV in the bedroom! Best thing I ever did, the wife much prefers watching in there, and honesty most of the time I am wife her. But if I wanna watch a different show or listen to tunes while studying (my desk and computer are also in the family room) I can do that...

    My 2 channel rig is relegated to the bedroom!

    If it was up to me I wouldn't even have a TV in the house, and my 2 channel system would be where the TV currently is.

    Putting on an album and listening to it from start to finish should be it's own form of entertainment. Or even just putting some tunes on in the background and *gasp* having a face to face conversation.

    TV sucks.

    Noted. I observed that it does get warm during use, so yeah maybe it needs some time to settle in.

    I "installed" it last night, but I'm going to wait to make a judgement on it until I get some more time spent listening with it in the signal chain. Then, I'll try going back to how it was without it and see what I notice.

    So I've had it installed for about a week and I've been using it. Decided to test it tonight.

    I just listened to 4 tracks with it, and then removed it and listened to the same 4 tracks. I'm not really detecting any discernible differences. If anything I prefer the sound without it installed. Shrug! YMMV.

    Probly been asked but what is your setup? I am all about lowering noise floor but adding to the signal chain is at the same time counter intuitive.
