McIntosh MI502
The post could fit here as that amp is being sold as a home theater amp. I just got one at the beginning of the year for my 2 18” klipsch subwoofers. The amps are able to feed adequate power to those giant subwoofers allowing for deep bass. My sub... 
Audiophile frame of mind
@dhite71    Very good observations. That was my intent in obtaining my next grill, lifelong, or as long as that grill will last. We were planning our retirement house and I conducted extensive research. In our previous house, we had a built in o... 
Audiophile frame of mind
@grislybutter   I had a Home Depot grill, not a Weber, but it was a workhorse. It started rusting and was bent in some areas due to various moves. One night the brother in law and I were grilling and we were not paying close attention. Both of ... 
Audiophile frame of mind
Why not look at the American Muscle Grill (AMG), now American Made Grills. I bought a store model a few years ago. This is a workhorse. It’s all stainless steel and the kicker is that it is endorsed by Sylvester Stallone, LOL. You can find deals i... 
PS Audio Power regenerator
There are some details missing from your question. Are your amps 600 watts each? If so, then you need to plug them straight into the wall unless you have PS AUDIO P15, at a minimum, or a P20 for optimal power availability to the amps. If your amps... 
Should Speaker Manufactures provide a Frequency Response Graph?
@mijostyn  ”The amplitude response of a speaker is a moving target. It will change depending on the room. There are also other factors that play a significant role in audio fidelity like phase behavior and group delays. I do not pay attention to ... 
Geddes multiple subwoofer method - 3 subs vice 4
"I will always disagree with using the main subs without a high pass filter as being universally better, especially with smaller mains." That may be true for small speakers. I guess my giant mains with aforementioned 18" and 15" bass drivers don’... 
300b lovers
@lynn_olson    “Ralph, I see you introduced a PP 300B amplifier at one of the recent hifi shows. How do you think it compares to your Class D amplifier, in subjective terms? Since you designed both, you're the best qualified to assess the differ...

@donsachs    I tried to post a new link but it gets blocked. You have to Google Soundstage SOUTHWEST Texas audio show. Not sure why the link gets blocked, weird. Use atmaspehere 300b prototype in search string.   
300b lovers
Did anyone who went to the Texas audio show hear the 300B amps in the Classic Audio Loudspeaker room? They were powering a set of field coil speakers. I believe they were prototypes of Atmasphere 300b amps.   https://www.facebook.com/story.php/?... 
Subwoofer speed is in the room, not the box
@mijostyn   "I listen to everything from Nine Inch Nails and The Red Hot Chili Peppers to Cherubini String Quartets. I have eight 12 inch drivers in a 16 X 30 foot room, each one powered by 2500 watts. I am into chest thumping as much as anyone... 
Subwoofer speed is in the room, not the box
@mijostyn "If subwoofers and main speakers are integrated correctly there is no reason to turn the subs up or down with any genre of music. A system that is tuned correctly does not care what genre you are playing. When I use the term , system I i... 
Subwoofer speed is in the room, not the box
@gdaddy1  “Using my ears (crazy isn't it?) I concluded that if your main speakers produce good bass down to 50hz why restrict them? Why? Because it sounded better, fuller, more glorious. Plugging ports and making a sealed cabinet restricts cone m... 
A Story about a Defective Signature Platinum
@mijostyn Sorry to hear about your issues with the MSL. It seems that the MSLs were once the flavor of the day MC. I can certainly attest to the sonic merits of the Soundsmith Hyperion. It is easy to set up (mounted on SME V), has a recommended... 
Horns with good timbre and tonality?
"Classic Audio’s T 1.5 Reference by a mile. All the others are wishful thinking. SET ready, high impedance, field coils and all." I knew they were the "one" when I first heard them at Capital Audio Fest. I was open minded about my new speakers du...
