|Audible Illusions M3A update|
No, do not under any circumstances send it back. They have a track record of taking months longer than expected to do upgrade work. I personally had this experience and it was agonizing. Ultimately Art felt bad about this and sold me a new one at ...
|Analogue or Digital sound level meter?|
I have used both and find the digital one much easier to use. Also, the test results are fascinating.
|Tired of My Thiel's!!! UPGRADE TIME???|
Make sure your 2.3's are broken in thoroughly and try Cardas cable. I ended up migrating to Proac and Spendor speakers, which are more naturally musical, but sometimes miss that honestly and authority of the Thiels.
|Any Thiel 3.6 Owners in SF Bay Area?|

|Class Action Suit against UPS?|
I have had mostly good experience with UPS, but had enough problems that I most definitely worry every time I use UPS. Fed Ex has been flawless for me so far. Which leads to my question: Have any of you tried FED EX'S NEW GROUND SERVICE? It's comp...
|Thiel 2.3's Power Hungry??|
Yes, even though the 2.3 is more efficient than other Thiels, well, at lower power levels my experience was that the sound was lean. I got good results with CJ Premier 12's at 140 watts per side, but I suspect that doubling the power would have re...
|Cables for Proac Response 2.5|
I find that Audio Tekne is a magical combination for my Proac 2.5, but it is expensive. HT Pro-9 is quite good, perhaps a tad mechanical compared to the fluid Audio Tekne.
|VANDERSTEENS vs. THIELS|
Vandy and Thiel are severely different. Thiels are extremely linear and accurate and require lots of very clean power and a very clean source to sound good, or even listenable. Given your current electronics, I would not commit to Thiels without f...
