Hands-on Review: Pioneer Elite SX-S30 2-Channel UHD Receiver

Hands-on Review: Pioneer Elite SX-S30 2-Channel UHD Receiver

For the longest time, I haven't been happy with my TV's sound. Who is anyway? There are several options to get around this. You could get a soundbar/soundbase, which I have in my bedroom. But this can often mean a compromise in sound quality for music listening (though it's more than acceptable for movie watching). Plus, I still need to connect my turntable, run my music from a USB key, and listen to Australia's Boom Radio from TuneIn.

David's Take: The Gutwire Notepad 2 to Absorb Vibrations

David's Take: The Gutwire Notepad 2 to Absorb Vibrations

About five years ago, I bought a couple of Gutwire Notepad vibration absorbers to place above my speakers. They worked remarkably in reducing speaker vibrations, resulting in wider imaging and more focused vocals. Too bad, however, that after about four years, the mass and its vibration absorption properties dissipated to virtually nil.
