How come Horn + woofer designs are not more popular?
I lived with a pair of JBL Array 1400s for about a year, they did some great things but were very unforgiving of bad recordings, I overall prefer my Revel 228be.  
Shocked removed spikes, used blue tack, what other non spike footer
SVS makes a product called sound path isolation feet, a set of four is 50 dollars, 100 dollars to do both speakers, they work very well.  
anyone hear the REL Carbon limited Subwoofer for 2 channel audio
A good friend has a pair complementing Revel 228bes, they sound fantastic together. The Revels have amazing bass on their own but a pair of carbons really took his system up a notch for sure.

Best Phone Stage for under $1,000.000
I have some experiences for you. The tube box SE is killer sounding, you get a low noise floor and the bloom of tubes, it's great sounding and cheap in comparison to others. The musical surroundings nova is also very good sounding, it has lower le... 
Best return for the money, system upgrade suggestions please.

Class D is affordable and sounds as good or better the SS/Valve why buy anything else ?
I have listened to some of the most highly regarded class d amps on the market. Current production.  In my system they lacked the body and three dimentionality of tubes, it's just that simple.

I have zero reason to prove anything to you, nor any reason to name manufactures and drag their reputation thrue the mud. I am not the one on here with an agenda to peddle wares. That's you.

The oppisition? Are you a bot? How are you allowed to advertise on these threads? No one I know out of all my audio friends owns class d. Why? because they don't sound as good, or we would all own them. I have been in the industry in sales and man...

Not a single solid state or class d amp has sounded anywhere close to my Rogue m180 dark mono blocks in my system, not even close.  
Class D is affordable and sounds as good or better the SS/Valve why buy anything else ?
Because they can sound great but they are not tubes or pure class a solid state. If you like them use them,  while they do some nice things overall I still like tubes better and will stick to them.
