Experiences with ModWright Sony 999ES
I had a Modwright Sony 999 with all of the mods and just sold it to upgrade to Dan's new player the Sony 9100es. I think that the 999 is one of the most musical players out there. I had a Cary 306/200 before the Sony and liked the Sony better. The... 
Ayre C 5xe Universal vs. Cary 306 SACD
Hey, has anyone out there done anymore with these 2 players?I auditioned the Ayre last night and was impressed, but no enough to lossen my wallet. I have owned a Cary 306/200 and thought it was one of the best out there. The new Cary 306 is suppos... 
Your Opinion: Coincident Vs. Silverline?
I have done this same comparison and the Coincidents are the way to go hands down. I have owned 4 Silverline models and 2 Coincident and kick my self everyday for selling my Coincident Super E III's, they are great speakers. The Coincident Partial... 
Audio Physics ...Bright or forward?
The new Tempos have a soft dome tweeter! The only other speakers these guys carry are Aerial(metal dome), Triangle( man do I hate those speakers), Wilson audio...I wish and AP's. They are more of a SS house, they only carry VTL for tubes neither o... 
Audio Physics ...Bright or forward?
I appreciate every one's thoughts. I did not check my post well enough and it does not read right. I truly believe in supporting my local retailer. He has brought the speakers out to my home twice,(25 mile drive one way) and has worked hard for th... 
Audio Physics ...Bright or forward?
The specific model I have been listening to is the new Tempo. I did not mean to say they were bright, just very forward. I have been listening to them with tube gear and the BAT integrated (hybrid)and a tubed cdp. With Transparent cabling they bec...

Downsized and still happy, can it happen?
Dude, I've been there done that and lived through it, and yes I am happy. I used to have VTL seperates, and switched to a Cary Sli-80 and loved it. The system is far simpler, as you pointed out and I get much more enjoyment out of it. Now, luckly ...

Single Driver Horn vs Multi driver efficient spker
Where can I find out "everything you ever needed to now about Horn speakers"? The only one I can listen to in my area is Avante garde and they are way out of my price range. When I have heard them, I did not really liked them, is that telling me e... 
Single Driver Horn vs Multi driver efficient spker
Darkmoebius,I understand what you are saying about the p/p vs SET, but the musical involvement thing is what is missing. I have only heard one other SET in my home and it was a ASL layla 845, its what got me started down this path. The 3d imageing... 
300b vs 845
Guys, Thanks for the responses. I hadn't thought about the heat issue and that could be a problem the way I am set up. My problem my be my amp and not the 300b tube, I just don't have enough experience with SET.ThanksMike
