Are there audiophiles here?

    Hello everyone!

    In addition to the radio, I also like listening to music. Advise a forum similar to this, but dedicated to audio.

    Well, maybe someone had speakers like Sony SS-G333ES. What could you say about them?

    I guess I'm a "technical" audiophile, in the sense that I'm picky how the audio sounds when listening to music, movie, etc., even if the particular song is such that it doesn't necessarily warrant such fussiness over the sound quality. :)

    You mean people who buy $100,000 turntables and $28,000 AC power cords? :D:D

    Oh yeah,,, the cryogenically treated oxygen free litz wire ones! Those are the bee's knees! Such a transparent sound field they produce.

    But... he did say Audiophile and not AudioPHOOL! ;)

    No. Vice versa.

    You can see what I usually do How Did You Radio Today?

    That is why I want to get a lot of sound for a little money, for example on old Sony...

    I've always been into audio in one way or another - most of my life I've owned and operated a recording studio and I work in the audio industry (high-end teleconferencing audio and video systems for use with Zoom, Teams, etc. - so needless to say our business is booming!)

    But the funnest audio project I've ever done was building a little "table music player" for my wife. The modules were all kits I sourced on eBay etc. - the speakers are very high-performance and it just works GREAT! My wife uses it every evening in her craft room, using Bluetooth from her Samsung or the fully-loaded iPod Classic (160gb of tunes!).

    It really was a fun project. There's a full thread on it here: https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?th...d-its-not-even-ham-radio.423648/#post-3085246

    Hi Wlad;

    I have an FT-991A; had an FT-840; both sounded terrible.

    I hooked an spare Yamaha NS-AP2600S and that changed a good lot my listening experience. While I do use a headset during QSOs (Sennheiser SC-60), the Yamaha speaker sounds great when I'm just in listening mode or even tuned to some AM BC band station. Doesn't cost a limb, compact, plenty available in eBay, no need for amplifiers to drive it, just hook up to the EXT SPKR of the radio and you're suddenly sounding better than big-buck rigs.

    I choose speakers and an amplifier not for radio, but for music.
    As time has shown, I mainly listen to soft rock (Uriah Heep, Creedence, Pink Floyd, Nick Cave, Mark Knopfler...) in FLAC format and Internet radio from a source on the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B + ES9038Q2M
