Just curious — Crown xls 5202 amplifier
I read that the amp is Class D, but I don’t know how they get such power generated from such sparse innards (when compared to my Parasound A21, for example, which is rated at 250 watts RMS into 8 ohms). 
Whats playing on your system today?
Believe it or not, I found a used CD of Cole Porter and have been listening to the music of my parents and grandparents.  Kind of relaxing. 
Whatta Ya Think About Hsu Research Subwoofers?
Sure.  I plan to put the subwoofer to the right on a ledge that is part of the fireplace, just to the right of the second door.  I will run the cable for that beneath the first door, where the carpet ends and vinyl flooring begins.  I will tape it... 
Squashed(?) LRS
Hleeid:  $650?  I was under the impression that Magnepan’s cost thousands of dollars.  I spent several hundred more than you did for conventional towers.  Enjoy your new speakers — looks like you have some nice equipment there.  I hope to hear som... 
Whatta Ya Think About Hsu Research Subwoofers?
Hi Tim.  The real advantage of the ML subs over what I chose would be the Bluetooth capability.   Same with Syzygy, but even more so, as the Bluetooth transmitter can communicate with up to 8 subwoofers.  That is capability!  But I made my choice ...

I made my purchase — a pair of SVS SB 2000’s.  They are the discontinued model that was replaced by the 2000 Pro, and I could still get them for $649 each with free shipping.  The only difference between what I got and the Pro is that the latter h... 
Remove rack or console from between your speakers
mikelavigne and millercarbon:  I just looked at photos of both of your listening rooms and equipment and they blew me away!  Here I was agonizing over which small subs to buy, and your equipment and rooms look like you are preparing for a space la...

scm:  Nothing special about 540.  It was just a number I tagged onto the end of my name to differentiate me from all the other Bob’s on a discussion forum.  Glad you are liking your Hsu’s — they look like nice subwoofers.If I am considering Blueto... 
Whatta Ya Think About Hsu Research Subwoofers?
Tim, I am usually the sort of person who can window shop, see nice things and pass them by without stressing over not buying them.  But occasionally I get on a bent when I see something and think, “Someone else has this and is enjoying it, while I... 
Ok guys
I never even thought about it.  The turntable I have now was bought 30 years ago from some guy as part of a package of equipment he was selling so his wife couldn’t get it in the divorce.  The Kenwood linear-tracking TT did not have a dust cover —... 
Whatta Ya Think About Hsu Research Subwoofers?
Thank you guys again for your suggestions — I am going to look again at Syzygy and at GR Research/Rythmik.  Funny how I didn’t agonize before buying the Martin Logan’s, but now I wonder if I should have bought KEF LS50’s and paired them with subwo... 
Whatta Ya Think About Hsu Research Subwoofers?
I know what passive loudspeakers are, but I wasn’t sure if the Parasound could power both the ML towers and subwoofers.  From reading responses, I now know the answer is No, I would need a separate amp to power passive subs. I’m thinking I will go... 
Whatta Ya Think About Hsu Research Subwoofers?
I see they are cylinders.  So all the music is from down-firing speaker rather than from the sides?  Or does sound emanate from the sides and bottom.  I suppose I would need to get a separate amplifier to power them . . . or could my Parasound amp...

bdp24,I’m not familiar with those subs.  I looked them up and they appear to be from early 1990’s?  I have thus far only looked at powered subs — what are the difference issues involved in using powered vs. passive subwoofers?  Also, one old forum...

Linda Ronstadt “Duets”Found at my local library. Easy listening/orchestra music of familiar old tunes.  Well done.
