Magnepan .7 Alternatives
First off condolences on your loss. I’ve been watching this thread with great interest as I recently purchased the .7 and couldn’t be happier with them. I would definitely take Johnny R.’s advice and go straight out of the Node into your amp. Im... 
Which pair of speakers changed your Hifi life?
Magnepan .7. I'm absolutely loving my system right now.   
What speakers have you mistakenly let go and then later repurchased?
Vandersteen 1ci. Upgraded to the 2 thinking if I liked the 1 the 2 would have to be better. It wasn't the case for my ears and spaces in my house. Later came by a gentleman who was letting a mint pair go cheap, so I bought them again. Now they ser... 
Lumin how do i get next song in playlist???
Oh and to answer your question...you cant just search for an album and begin playing it from track 3 and expect it to advance to the next song. You need to add it to a playlist first. Then it will advance.   
Lumin how do i get next song in playlist???
I have the Lumin T2 and love it as a streamer. The app takes some getting used to as you've discovered. Adding songs to playlists is not intuitive and to my knowledge there is no way to organize the songs/ albums within a playlist. But the app is ... 
Planar speaker characteristics
I got into audio about 5 years ago. It all started with a trip to AudioConnection, a meeting with Johnny Rutan, and posting my first thread here on Agon. In the time since I’ve purchased quite a few speakers. Here is a list of the ones I’ve owned... 
Something on top of a speaker=okay?
The only way to counter the negative effects of the stuffed animals is to put Townshend pods underneath them.  
low bass response
very interesting post @james633   
low bass response
The frequency of the low E string on a bass guitar is 41Hz. The wavelength would be 837 cm or 8.37 m. You mention that you are listening in the near field. How far back are you sitting? Perhaps there just isn’t enough distance between your speaker... 
Full range speaker recommendation
I think the Harbeth P3ESR or Vandy VLR CT's would work wonderfully in that room and give the OP that fuller sound he is wanting.  I don't think any Magnepan is going to work in that room due to size limitations.

I haven't gotten my robe yet if that's what you mean.  
Up to $4000US tower speakers for Jazz and Classical Music
Thanks again for the incredible input! no plans to upgrade the Audiolab as we just upgraded the amp (by the way, we find the synergy between the Audiolab amp and its CD transport to be excellent). We are aware it does not have a lot of power but... 
Help me pick a new pair of speakers
Vandersteen VLR CT plus 2 REL subs. Should sound fantastic with your Rogue gear. I'm a big jazz fan and I heard this setup at John Rutan's place, Audioconnection, in Verona, NJ last week. Sublime..... Although he was using the ARC i/50 which I am... 
Audio Research I/50
I had a chance to listen to the Audio Research I/50 at John Rutan's place last weekend. It was driving Vandersteen VLR CT's with a pair of REL T5/i's. Source was an Auralic Altair G1 I believe.  Very engaging system that really left me wanting fo...
