I know what you mean about the small speakers threads. There have been at least 9 in the last 2 months, I know because I started one about 2 months ago, then read all the others that came along too. I got tons of great ideas, not all the suggestions were duplicated, but I agree the topic was redundant to a fault. Searching the forums is a must, and it turns up a treasure trove of information. I had an amazing experience yesterday when I searched the forums for info on biasing ARC amps. Not only were there several extremely specific posts in the last year about exactly how to do this, but audiogoner Abe Collins posted a link to his own website where he photographed himself doing the job step by step, including what his meters look like and how to use them, what the schematic he got from ARC looked like, even what his living room and dog look like! I was so fascinated by his photographs and text that I spent the next 2 hours reading through his whole website, he is a really cool guy who has very articulate views on what he hears and likes in his system. I bookmarked his site so I can keep up with the antics of his cute dog Elvis. Apparently, he has a live Elvis-cam that is usually on but is down right now. Abe, you are a treasure to the Audiogon site. I wish you were my neighbor so I could just drop my amp off with you for service!
