Robert,

Based on my audition of satfrat's IC I would love to audition your package.

Clarification on Demo Package

Bill and others who are considering,
...As usual, as see I didn't make one thing, at least, as clear as I had intended. Folks who request to audition need to have their gear posted in the Systems link at the top far right of this page. Thanks!

Also, I'll be adding a pair of Balanced cables and a Digital cable, 1m each.

Been under the weather most of the day so I'm cutting this short.

Talk soon

                   Looks like we`ll be getting together again soon if you don`t mind Bill, I can`t pass up a chance to compare Robert`s Digital Link without Bybee with mine. As a teaser for ya Bill, I`ll bring some Bolder Bybee inlines with me so`s to try on your Maher Digital cable w/Shakti, just for shits&giggles. I`ll tell ya right now tho, you put Ridge Street`s entire cable package into your system and you`ll be hard-pressed to take it off. Regards, Robin

Now, what is exactly an "Alan Maher modded BPT"?   Changing wires and outlets?

                   Don`t you already know the answer to this question PsychicA? I would think as much as you`ve been around the circuit you`ve heard of an Alan Maher modified BPT? What exactly is done different? Alan put it together for one. :D  He uses BPT`s casing I know, whether he also uses Chris`s NoLo Tranny is anyone`s guess. His PC`s are also hardwired and he has no on/off switch. As basic as these balanced power conditioner are, what is there to really modify? Or was that your point to begin with? Regards, Robin

It's always fun to audition and compare. Ocassionally it pays by discovering something new that improves your system.

Hey Folks.
Thanks for all your interest. We got our five. They are, in no particular order:

Lonewolfny42
Marbles
Beezer
Bill@LakeGeorge
Audiojerry

Thanks guys. I appreciate you taking the time to do this. I trust it will be an ear opener for you.

The next thing I need for you to do if you haven't already, is email at ridgestreetaudio@comcast.net or call me at 1.219.324.2253 and give me your shipping address, credit card number and exp. date. I won't be hitting anyone's card unless there are damages or if I feel like springing for some new reference gear.

We're still pretty busy so I'll need about a week and a half or so before I can get this all out. I'll keep you posted.

Now, what the heck did I miss with that Chuck Josephson's gallery? I discovered the latest thread when I noticed the link on the first post on the first page goes to part of my photo album. Why does it do that? Francisco, was that the photo you sent me back in July? If so, My God! That set up was so bizarre the picture crashed my wife’s computer! Was it a virus? Was that what caused the blackout recently out east and part of the Midwest. Was it the cause for the string of celebrity deaths this past week and a half?  I wished I had seen the whole album. I didn’t know where it came from so I never saw the album. Anyway, Chuck, if you’re reading this, I admire your passion for the hobby.  Keep it up!

Robert's pack arrived yesterday, and I am very impressed! Everthing is organized, neatly packaged, and the cables are built to a very high standard.

They came with 48 hours of break-in, and I only spent about an hour last night listening to the rca Midnight Silver between my dac and preamp, and the XLR version between my preamp and amp, and the early returns are that these cables are exceptional. It's best to warn you early that unless you are prepared to buy, maybe you shouldn't listen.

I am very anxious to do some extended listening this weekend and discover the secrets of the digital and speaker Midnights.  

But I have a question: What in the hell are those two cute little balls for?
My cat already swallowed one of them.....just kidding  :wink:
but I do want to know - are they just for fun?
