Imported audio are you getting the same level of performance vs domestic priced equip?
Millercarbon +1, your satire is on point.Charles 
Audio Note Kit 1 Upgrade Or New Dac
Hi akwilson, You're happy with your current sound quality but what do you prefer most,  the AN kit or the Chord  presentation? My gut feeling would be to move toward the AN with higher quality output transformers.Good Luck,Charles 
Tekton Design MOAB
Hello Ray, I look forward to your listening impressions of the Moab and how they compare and contrast with your former well regarded Maggies. Given the stark design/approach differences between these 2 speakers this will be very interesting to rea... 
Tekton Design MOAB
Michael, Thanks for sharing your early listening impressions of the Moabs. Given your description it certainly seems to be the case that these are exceptionally engaging speakers that excel in conveying musical beauty and emotion (not a simple tas... 
Tekton Perfect SET
I agree with the suggestion to try both amplifiers with the Perfect SET speakers and compare results.  My gut feeling is that overall the tubed Dennis Had amplifier will be sonically superior and more engaging/involving with this speaker.Charles 
Tekton Perfect SET
I’d heed the advice from Eric. He must believe that a 12" woofer is totally sufficient for the cubic space you have with proper speaker placement. I believe this speaker with the Dennis  Had  amplifier has much potential for success.Charles

Crossover Capacitors for Accuton Tweeters - Solen -> ClarityCap -> Jupiter -> Duelund
Bill (brownsfan)I  agree with you. This IMO was a language/communication issue.  I realized this after reading Raul's 2nd clarifying post on this thread.Charles 
Crossover Capacitors for Accuton Tweeters - Solen -> ClarityCap -> Jupiter -> Duelund
Hi Bill, I like your "rants" they’re grounded in logic and stimulate thought. Given the gist of Raul’s 2nd post I believe he’d agree with you. No room, system or component is without fault and we as listeners choose and live with our accepted/inev...

Hello Raul, I appreciate your last post and the clarification of your stance. I do not disagree with anything that you have just written. My only point was This topic/area is by default purely subjective. Each one of us will pursue what we think s... 
Crossover Capacitors for Accuton Tweeters - Solen -> ClarityCap -> Jupiter -> Duelund
Erik, I agree with your statement about "added sparkle" not heard in the presence of live instruments. I became aware of this effect from personal experience many years ago and realized that so called hyper detail is simply added upper frequency t...

Bill (brownsfan),I had the pleasure of using a professionally built Nelson Pass D.I.Y. designed S.I,T 2 push pull version that is 40 watts per channel for about 3 weeks (thanks to a generous Audiogon member loan). I can tell you it was a ’VERY’ go...

Rodman99999,Very well stated. For Raul to suggest that his system/approach gets it right and cal3713's results  are merely pleasant distortion and coloration is the height of arrogance and condescension. Charles  
Crossover Capacitors for Accuton Tweeters - Solen -> ClarityCap -> Jupiter -> Duelund
Cal3713,Your speakers are a tougher load than my Coincident Total Eclipse II so I can understand the need for a better matching power amplifier. The Frankenstein has been ideal for my needs. Given your teriffic results with the First Watt F4s I su... 
Crossover Capacitors for Accuton Tweeters - Solen -> ClarityCap -> Jupiter -> Duelund
Very interesting comments regarding listening preferences. Truth is they will differ with each individual. I can tell you I’ve listened to live unamplified music in small intimate jazz venues (2 feet from the stage sometimes) and peformances in pr...
