Klipsch Heresy 1 Compatibility question with Class D Amp
Rocky1313,One thing has been settled,  you’ve listen to the Herseys with your class D amplifier and enjoy what you hear, that’s good. These speakers are quite efficient and you’re probably using less than 1 watt of power 99%of the time. Headroom i... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I'm in 100% agreement with bill_K's post. Not right vs wrong but rather which design's strengths/compromise package  suits a listener's taste best. Numerous approaches to achieve excellent sound quality. Charles  
Tekton Double Impacts
Mig,Thank you. I'm sure Jonathan is going to enjoy hearing your Tekton Lore and Manley Parallel 300b amplifier pairing.  What 300b  are you currently using in this amplifier?Charles  
Tekton Double Impacts
Hi mig,That’s my sense as well as to the probability of any significant changes at this juncture. You say that the Diavolo sounds like live music and Jonathan has written several times the Diavolo is the more emotionally involving amplifier. These... 
Zu Druid & Definition Roundup
Dentdog thanks for the explanation.Spirit, your "after midnight" sound (quality) 24/7 sums up the effect of balanced AC power just perfectly and couldn't be illustrated better 😊.Charles  
Tekton Double Impacts
Hi David, Exactly why I’m trying to get a sense of what constitutes a meaningful change in the system following the Encore insertion. For example he already owned the mentioned 300b tubes as well as the Nord amplifier. These were used with the Dou...

David,Does a complete cable loom change count as a major upgrade or just component changes? Want to be clear on the stipulations. Charles

David,I’m game for the culinary wager but what exactly are the stipulations/criteria? I’d expect jcarcopo to experiment with amps/ audio products he already has in his possession (various tubes, cables etc.). My point is that I doubt he’d do any "...

fetguy, Well you obviously know  him better than I do but he's been "faithful" with his Art Audio Diavolo.  I can vouch for that. I think he'll be hard pressed to beat the Encores given his listening impressions. Charles  
Tekton Double Impacts
Hi David,Okay, " finding the correct  balance" I see your point. That could very well be a possibility. Jcarcopo seems so happy currently that if he doesn’t make a single additional change at this point and going forward I believe that he remains ... 
Tekton Double Impacts
Hi David,Yes I understand your point (probability of further system upgrading). In the case of jcarcopo I'm not so sure.  He already has a very mature and well sorted out system. It could very well be that the Tekton Encores represent in fact the ... 
Tekton Double Impacts
Hi jcarcopo, Based on your comments I get the feeling that you'll regard the Encores as one of the best audio related purchases you've ever made. It's very clear that you find them to be simply  outstanding! Excellent buying decision  my friend. T...
