Top 5 Hamburgers
Thanks Tvad. I've been hearing about Langers for years; but it kind of fell off my radar. I'll get there the next time I'm in town, for sure.I used to live across the street from Cal St. Northridge on Nordhoff, and I've never heard of Brent's. I'l...

I don't know Macdad, the best sandwich? I'd have to say it came from a Jewish deli, like 5) Art's in B.H. or Studio City4) Mort's in Pacific Palisades3) Shep's on Pico (I think it's gone)2) Carnegie (N.Y.)1) Webbie's on Laurel Cyn and Ventura (*sn... 
Best 300B
Hi Ron. Consider the Shuguang Treasures. Neutral like the KR; but with a lower sound floor. They take forever to break in though; but reward you time after time along the way, and definitely sound insanely good right out of the box.I never heard t... 
Decware - any substance here?
The thing that keeps me intrigued is the speaker design. The long turned archaic Infinity WTLC speakers of the seventies were the first speakers I ever had a crush on, and Decware design in some cases reminds me of them, and a time when audio was ... 
Most attractive power cables?
The ones that got the biggest "holy %&[email protected]" out of me were Tara Omegas. 
Has anyone listened to the coincident linestage?
He'll be at RMAF this year for the first time, and has posted in another thread that he will be exhibiting the Pure Refs with Frankensteins, his linestage and phono pre. 
Grammys for 2010, so far...
I'm hoping "Broken Bells" (James Mercer of The Shins and Danger Mouse) gets a nod. Brilliant stuff. 
Sub for Sonus Faber Guarneri Homage
The Wilson Benesch is the only powered sub I've ever heard that sounded organic, like music does.

Anyone going to Denver for the show should know about (now that I've secured my reservation!) a great little foodie opportunity.The name of the place is Bones. They are a gourmet take on the classic Japanese noodle bowl parlor. Their site is at bo... 
2010 RMAF Analog Reports + Meet and Greet
It's nice to see that Coincident Speaker Technology is (finally) going to be showing in Denver.My favorite rooms last year were the TW Acustic room and the Wavelength/Vaughn room. I was also intrigued by the Ohm room, and don't see them on the exh... 
Decware - any substance here?
It bums me out also. I just checked to see if he'll be at RMAF and no, again this year he isn't on the exhibitor list.In his defense, he does have his own "fest", and I'm sure his argument would be that this way you (we) aren't limited to one or t...

Salespeople of many high end products are taught to "qualify" a customer early on, so as not to waste precious time with someone who doesn't have the financial wherewithal to actually make a purchase. This can also have a positive outcome for the ... 
Audio Research Preamp with Cary Amp?
If you are buying from Upscale, last I checked he still had some of those Popes from Holland 6SN7's. They are phenomenal.I hate to throw a wrench into the discussion; but I didn't like the SLP-98 with the 805's (the ones I heard it with were the A... 
Best used floorstander on the FS forum under $2500
Don't those Von Schweikerts go flat to 20hz? I'll tell you this much, I heard them at one of the shows with Albert's cabling, and they are MUCH better than the 1st version, which were quite good.

Wow. It sounds like this guy would get more love if he went back to being a lawyer!
