Audiophile system for Techno and Dance music
Ohh, and obviously I don’t think you need to worry about being perfect down to 10hz, but your subs at least need to bow out gracefully without hitting xmax when pushed (maybe just a problem for me for stupidly over boosting down low early in my ho... 
Audiophile system for Techno and Dance music
I’m with you on some version of a normal 2 channel setup being able to pull this off while providing amazing holography at a primary listening position. I love what my system does with electronica.I also agree with folks above that some version of... 
Need really simple advice. How do I use the DAC side of my ARC Ref CD-9SE to stream music?

Easy to drive full range single drivers maybe? Would be a big change of pace and allow you to explore almost any amplifier while retaining coherency and keeping you in a crossoverless paradigm. Rave reviews all around for these: https://forum.audi... 
Lumin T2 or Matrix Audio Element X
I think the question really is just do you like your current dac or do you want to change? If you like what you're getting with the matrix why not stay with them.The fact that you're asking the question suggests that you do want to hear something ...

Supratek Owners Thread
@wig Good to hear yet another pro-dht comment from a pair of trusted ears. Everything I've read has been very positive. My amplifiers (first watt f4s) are a simple circuit and only provide current gain and are therefore more influenced by the prea...
