B&W 800 D4's, Room size, & general Q's
I believe the bigger issue is the room is close to a square (17x18). Can you increase the 18 dimension or is it too late? 
After 50 years, I have finally found my destination amps... AGD Audions!
Congratulations on your upgrade and it is wonderful to hear that it is that easy. I am curious about low volume listening and I mean kind of take a nap or read a book low level listening. Is it indeed much more dynamic at very low listening levels... 
After 50 years, I have finally found my destination amps... AGD Audions!
Just purchased the Vivace. Truly loving this amplifier and appreciating that it is Class D and so good based on the bad rep Class D has had in the past. I am coming from a decent pair of tube monoblocks (Opera-Consance Cyber 800SE) and the Vivace ... 
Tube Preamp - What to buy?
Conrad Classic 2 SE. This preamplifier has upgraded Teflon Caps and Vishay Resistors along with a precision Alps Volume control. Unfortunately it does not offer a remote or a phono section. If you are moving towards separates then the lack of a p... 
Recommendations for speakers that sound great at lower volume levels.
KEF Reference 1 speakers play wonderfully low, med and at high volume levels. Pair it with the right amplifier and you will be happy. 
A full range speaker?
I guess this is is just a hypothetical question since most rooms in your typical home could not handle "full range" orchestral reproduction. Bass waves are really big and even placing four bass traps in the corners of a typical room that would be ... 
Anyone Successfully Go from Floor Standers to Bookshelf Monitors w/ Subs?
I would suggest a pair of speakers that are designed to be put into the corners of the room. The Audio Note AN-E/LX HEMP might work for you. I realize that these are not bookshelf speakers nor would you need a subwoofer, but being that they are ... 
Craigslist Fraud
I am sure that there are scamming on all different sites, some sites more prone that others, but they are all out there prying on people. This is the reason I always sell or buy where there will be face to face contact and a cash transaction or a ... 
Audiophile system for Techno and Dance music
At what price point? Not knowing this I would suggest one of the bigger 3-way JBL monitors with 10 or 12 inch woofers or a pair of the big ZU speakers. 
Audiophile demographics?

TEAC NT-505 FUNCTIONAL REVIEW
I am using a Backert Rhumba 1.3 Extreme with the TEAC NT-505. I have also used it with an Onix Melody SP3 Integrated Tube Amplifier in which I use the TEAC as the volume control point not the integrated and this sounds really wonderful also. I hav... 
TEAC NT-505 FUNCTIONAL REVIEW
I also have the NT-505 and love the unit although I had the rear Network plug/connection fail and had to send the unit back for warranty repair work. The TEAC was fixed, no cost to me, and now works as good as new. I did not have the patience for ... 
SET vs Class A vs tubes vs Class AB amps
As mentioned by pretty much all posters above it depends on the designer how the amplifier is going to sound and its advantages or disadvantages. The ultimate goal is to power the speaker comfortable with more power in reserve than the speakers wi...
