Maggie owners (past, present, future) what do (did) you love and or dislike about them?
I had a pair of 1.7s that I loved.  I agree with jaytor that they could project an exaggerated image.  I think it was a Duke Ellington song in which the voice seemed to be coming from an enormous head.  I listen mostly to classical music so that e... 
Another fallacy about speakers
Who buys speakers just because the manufacturer claims the drivers are made in-house?  Isn't the idea to buy speakers that sound the best to your ears?  I need to get a life instead of spending my time reading threads like this one. 
GREAT MUSIC - SO POORLY RECORDED...
I agree with the original poster - it is disappointing to hear great music that is poorly recorded.  We spend huge amounts of money to hear music as close to live as possible.  The artists are performing to the best of their ability, but it's a sh... 
It’s you.
Well said.  I recently posted a request for help in choosing speakers that were considered strong in classical music, particularly string instruments.  Many people were extremely helpful and pleasant, but some were downright viscous.  Keeping thin... 
The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
I must be stupid because I don't understand what the purpose of this thread is.  I guess I wasted my time at Cal and took the wrong classes.  Someone earlier said "feed the troll".  And we have certainly done it.  Anybody else feel manipulated? 
The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
What exactly is your point?  It's human nature to always seek something better.  Our problem is that there always is something better.  If, on the other hand, you feel that you have found your musical Nirvava, and you are happy and satisfied, wher... 
Buyer is claiming damage that was done by him!
From what you describe it doesn't seem possible that the damage described was done in transit.  It sounds like someone tried to pry the grills off as you said.  It really comes down to whether you want to take an unjustified hit to your rating or ... 
Buyer is claiming damage that was done by him!
What about the pictures you took to sell the speakers in the first place?  Did you take pictures that clearly show the front of the speakers with no damage? 
My rankings of some classical violin music in high resolution
Thank you for the list.  I have a discussion on another thread about speakers that are the best at reproducing strings, the violin being my favorite.  I bought a Joshua Bell CD and while I cannot complain about his playing, I just don't care for t... 
Best moderately priced speakers for classical music
This post is not directed at any one individual, so if you identify yourself in what I am saying you might want to think about what that means.  I really opened a can of worms with the suggestion that some types of speakers might be more suitable ... 
Best moderately priced speakers for classical music
I made my decision and it was a line of speakers that was suggested by numerous people.  I did a lot of research on many of the speakers suggested.  Unfortunately, I was not able to audition any of them because I live far away from any high-end st... 
Best moderately priced speakers for classical music
Thanks to all who responded.  Perhaps I should have worded my post a little differently.  Instead of saying "best" which is subjective, I should have simply asked for suggestions for speakers that are recognized for certain characteristics.  Many ... 
Jimmy Page, It's time to call your lawyers?
I'm having trouble feeling sorry for Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin after listening to "Taurus" written by Randy California and Spirit.  It kind of ruined me for listening to "Stairway to Heaven".  I agree that many rock songs were reworked (copied) ... 
Muffled vocals
You people are amazing.  I didn't expect this kind of response to my little problem.  The Lyndorf is all digital and my model does not have room correction.  It has analog outputs but no analog inputs. It is connected to the amp with an Audioquest... 
Muffled vocals
All connections are correct.  I just listened to Bitches Brew, Kind of Blue, and ended with Double Violin Concerto. They all sounded great.  Better than the 1.7s I replaced. Put on Lucinda Williams and the instruments were clear but she was in the...
