Tekton Design Moab
MC Just wonderin if the speakers ever came? Another question has come to mind having read through this thread. What will you do if you don’t like the sound of the speakers? 
Tekton Double Impacts
Eric, no problem I can call. I first emailed since that is a form of communication on the tektondesign website. My first email was directed to you, but someone else started answering the questions I had? 
Tekton Double Impacts
It’s a bit sketchy getting info via email. I have asked multiple questions in about 3 emails and will get two or three questions answered. Still don’t know who manufactures the drivers (I think it’s Eminence for the SE?) for either the standard DI...

Jcarpopo- thanks for the info! I did not know the upgraded tweeters in the SE were scanspeak. I thought? I read somewhere that the drivers Eric using are from parts express?? Maybe since he is not designing his own drivers that really helps keep t...

Corelli “Good to hear from old friends on this thread. I would agree with all that has been said. @2spyop, you won’t go wrong with the DI, DI SE. The Moabs will exceed budget by $500. Wish I had the ability to tell you I have heard them side by si...

charles1dad "the Line Magnetic 216ia isn't a SET amplifier. It's a class AB push pull with KT 88 output tubes". I stand corrected. It is hard to believe the sensitivity of such large speakers can be driven with low tube watts..... not sure what M...

Question for corelli or anyone else with Tekton DI experience...Looking at both the Magnepan 1.7i with JL Audio f113 sub and the Tekton DI, maybe SE to upgrade my audio system. When I contacted Tekton directly they told me the DI SE would match we... 
More Power or use subwoofer to boost bass for music
Not seeing too much on the JL Audio subwoofers. I think them and REL seem to have top experience and engineering know how. 
Can an older Sony or Pioneer CD changer sound better with a budget DAC?
I have ordered three of the Fiio D03k devices. These are the cheapest in cost, with the most favorable reviews. I will post some very “unscientific” results for the fun of it. Ahh the audio hobby is so addictive..... 
Can an older Sony or Pioneer CD changer sound better with a budget DAC?
MillercarbonI can always count on a good answer from you.I guess that the question should be something like” Would a newer 2019-20 DAC chipset and implementation at a budget cost outperform an older DAC chipset and implementation in an established... 
Any experience with these turntables?
Again thanks guys. I look to the turntable experts here and have not been disappointed. Effischer, great hearing from you and I do trust your opinion. I might just try the Sansui and AR when my buddy gets around to working on them. I don’t think h... 
Any experience with these turntables?
MillercarbonGreat advice! I think my buddy would let me take them home and try them. Maybe I can borrow one of his cartridges that fits on all of them too. 
BEST SPEAKERS AT A REASONABLE PRICE
I agree with all who mentioned Vandersteen and Magnepan. I have MMGs in one system and 2CE Sig2s in another. Both are stellar at a lower price point. I would agree the Magnepans need quality power to sound thier best. I use a Parasound A21 amp. 
[help] I'm too Boomer to stream. :-(
Yeah contacting Customer Suppport is the way to go with Bluesound. I had a fair share of connect/disconnect problems with mine, and the IT guys were awesome, that notwithstanding it is a stellar piece of kit for what it is intended to do. IMO. 
How do you use Tidal with you local library?
I have a Bluesound Node 2 and I can choose between my ITunes library or Tidal to play music. I also have the Itunes music files on a Mycloud NAS.
