The photographs taken of HiFi gear presented in this forum are the copyright of Karsten Hein. Album covers are the copyright of the respective music and artwork producer. They are shown here for the purposes of education and presentation, and there is no affiliation to the record companies or any intent to sell music through this platform.

The claims made in this forum are based on personal observations resulting from experimentation with HiFi components over the years rather than scientific research. Since the journey of life implies continuous learning, some of the findings may not yet be universally true, especially if testing conditions differ to a significant degree from the ones presented here. Paragraphs will therefore be updated as new insights arise. Please feel free to comment, if your own empirical data should vary greatly from the information presented here.
