  Rick thank you for (the) valuable advice.  I bought the Passlabs X250.5 and (couldn't be) happier.   It is very musical and smooth like you said.   I like your website a lot and I check it very often.   Bjorn Granberg, Sweden - Nov 20, 06
  Amazing (McIntosh) factory tour !  

Rick you should be a magazine writer.   You have more experience than anybody including the professionals.  Cheers.

  Finally a true audiophile, great system showcase.   Samual Halperns, Texas - Aug 9, 06
  I just want (to say) Thank you (for) recommending the Rossini title to me.  It was a little expensive ordering from Japan but it (was) well worth the trouble.   Your website  is awesome.  Hello from Germany.   Wolfgang Brück, Germany  - Aug 6, 06
  Rick, you're a pure blood audiophile is your website is truly amazing.     Ping Kwan Lee, Singapore - Jul 1, 06
  I spent the last few days listening to the 5 KKV CD titles you recommended,  over and over again.   They're all very nice, and really great sounding.  I just wanna say thank you for your recommendations.

Hi!  Greetings From Rochester, NY!

 I just discovered your web site and really enjoy it.  I love looking at pictures of audiophile systems owned by real people in real homes.  Seeing great music collections is fun too............

.......Thanks for putting together and sharing a great web site.



  Michael, Rochester - May 5, 06
Great website! Ran across the link on Audiokarma.  Great McIntosh & Audio Classics stuff too.  Thanks.


  Dick, L.A - May 2, 06
  I enjoyed your website and looking at all of the systems. I also agree with some of your CD selections and will buy some new CD's based on your recommendations.   Pat, Toronto - April 29, 06

  I really enjoy your website it is so nice. I'm very into this audio hobby but I don't have too many friends in this hobby......I hope I can meet more audiophile friends through this hobby and your website.   Martin, Toronto - Mar 31,06
  Your website is fantastic and I've very much enjoyed going through the systems.
  Drew, Toronto - Mar 4, 06
  I needed to move to a Condo and had to sell my equipments.  Rick helped me sold almost everything through his audiophile connections, but he didn't charge a dime, nor does he accept any commission offers.  

An enthusiastic audiophile indeed !


  Joe, Toronto - Mar 3, 06
  I enjoy your website and usually visit it often. I posted a thread on CAM for audiophiles here in Vancouver.




Nelson, B.C - Feb 26, 06


I have always enjoyed your Stereopal Page, and I would love to participate. 




Ed, B.C - Feb 16, 06

  And many compliments for your website, I made a complete tour, it's wonderful and it's very nice to find a Mac enthusiast like you. I appreciated particularly the factory visits: I live in Italy and for me Binghamton is quite far

Thank you again for your kind attention Rick.




Guglielmo, Italy -  Feb 15, 06





Since you suggested Classe Audio amplifiers to me, today I bought a Classe CA 400. I hooked up the Classe, and I was surprised.  It was much much better than I thought it would be, I felt like I had new speakers, soft and clean mids, at the same time the bass was tighter than my old Bryston 4B.   It's amazing.


Thank you so much for your suggestion.   It was a perfect suggestion.

"I was very intrigued by your pictorial tour of the Mac factory and a visit to AudioClassic. It was enjoyable and very well done, if I may say so! "

"I stumbled across your site today, and I ended up poring over the pictures and write ups of the various systems while I was at work.  Very nice site, you must have put a lot of work into it. Keep up the great work, I look forward to reading about the new updates to the home visits and recommended CDs."

  "The tour is enough to make a grown man drool.   Many thanks for sharing!!".... BHinDC




AK Member - Aug 15, 05

  ".... Many thanks to (Rick) for putting together such a good presentation (on the McIntosh Tour) of pictures and text. Its not like being there, but it does give one a good feel for what the factory is like. I am especially stuck by the combination of old (transformer winding machines) and new techologies to produce state of the art products at what, in todays high end market, are quite reasonable prices."..........Elling

  Great website Rick !  I like the humorous tone and non-commercial nature of your website.   Keep up the good work.   Simon - July 31, 05




And below are the nasty feedbacks.....



I wish for you to comment on the Naum Starkman Chopin title you so highly recommended.  In my opinion, his interpretation is one of the worse you can find on this planet.   He basically took one of the most beautiful Chopin pieces and turned it into punk rock with the piano.    I must politely ask you to consider removing the recommendation.........   V. Silvermann - Dec 23, 06

An astute audiophile or should I say, music lover such as yourself who

unselfishly offers CD recommendations freely to other deserves to be

commented upon.   However, I hear nothing of what you described on the Salmeskatt title.  It is nothing out of the ordinary, and in fact, it should  not even make it onto any so called "best sounding list".    Perhaps you may want to be more careful with your recommendations.
