Longer speaker cables or interconnects
Almarg 6-18-2018 Looks like David Kalb is Danny’s brother, as indicated on Danny’s website. He looks to be a good deal younger than what I’d expect Danny to look like in recent years, though. In any event, it appears that Steph Curry has nothin...

Thanks, Steakster.Looks like David Kalb is Danny’s brother, as indicated on Danny’s website. He looks to be a good deal younger than what I’d expect Danny to look like in recent years, though. In any event, it appears that Steph Curry has nothing ... 
Longer speaker cables or interconnects
stock 604B, C, and D were 16 ohms. They can be modified to 8. When I had them re-coned, I kept them at 16. Jon said the Futterman much prefer the 16. Even better!  I had seen the 8 ohm number in the listing for the 604C near the middle of this ... 
Longer speaker cables or interconnects
OK. Given that, and pending any further info you might be able to provide after the equipment is unboxed, and given also that the 604c is specified as an 8 ohm driver, I suspect that with this particular equipment what would be best is:-- Connect ...

Unreceivedogma, it appears that your preamp provides two RCA outputs. "Output 1," at least in stock form, has an EXTREMELY high output impedance of 100K, that was apparently suitable for use with a matching Beard power amp, but very definitely w... 
Do you think U.S. Tariffs on Aluminum and Steel will affect domestic audio manufacturing?
Nonoise 6-17-2018 Oh, and @teo_audio is right about our military in that they are wholly unaccountable and unanswerable to anyone. They consume half our oil, are the biggest polluters, and I’ve always been of the mind that most of the defense prog... 
preamp inverts polarity
P.S. to my previous post:  In advocating a swap of + and - at the speaker terminals I'm assuming that the speakers are entirely passive, i.e., that they do not contain an amplifier themselves.  Let us know if that is not the case.Regards,-- Al 
preamp inverts polarity
Unbalanced interconnects should absolutely not be re-wired to invert polarity. If that were done the signal provided by the sending component would be connected to the circuit ground of the receiving component, and the circuit ground of the sendin... 
Bob Carver new tune expected
P.S: Regarding the Carver TX-11 tuner, my experience differed from what another poster reported earlier in the thread. Despite the special signal processing it incorporated to enhance weak signal reception, it was handily outperformed in that resp... 
Bob Carver new tune expected
FWIW, I owned a number of Carver Corporation products during the 1980s, namely the M400t, M400a, C-4000, C-9, and TX-11. All were absolutely reliable, and in fact after about 35 years the M400t is still going strong in the home of a relative.Sonic... 
best amp platform/stand under VAC Renaissance 30/30 300b amp?
I use the following Mapleshade "maple platform with isoblock suspension" under my VAC Renaissance 70/70 MkIII amplifier, on a bare wood floor. Seems to do the job, as evidenced in part by the absence of any audible response to nearby footfalls:htt... 
tubes and current
Great suggestions by Pdreher!Given that your speakers have presumably been designed with the expectation that they would typically be used with solid state amps, and given their very widely fluctuating impedance curve (see Figure 1 of Stereophile’... 
Power Cables
How long has this (thread) been going on? Not remotely close to as long as many other cable-related threads/debates :-)Regards,-- Al 
Power Cables
Sisyphus, thanks for providing the link. However, firstly, let’s not use the term "pulses." That would imply a squarish waveform, which is not what is being referred to. What is being referred to are the portions of a 60 Hz sine wave that approach... 
Power Cables
Sisyphus51 6-14-2018 A IR voltage drop of two volts across a very long power cable will not cause an equal 2 volt drop in filament voltage in a vacuum tube amp. Of course not, and no one has said that it would. In designs in which filament voltage...
