Magico Customer service
kenjit, a Bugatti is just a car with a engine and some tires right? Your garbage analogies are just that, garbage.  Urbie, no matter how much you want it and wish for it, Monitor audio speakers do not sound as good as Magicos, sorry I have heard t... 
Revel F328Be's Have Arrived! / Contradicting Specs?
Another question, why would someone buy a 16k speaker, think they are mediocre, and then bring up that  they are made in China as way to degrade their perceived value? Wouldn't those issues prevented one from buying them in the first place? Sounds... 
Revel F328Be's Have Arrived! / Contradicting Specs?
Anyone who is not getting exceptional results from these speakers are either driving them with gear that's a poor match or they are not set up properly in their room, Details matter. The 228 is one of the cleanest, clearest, most effortless and co... 
Does anyone do off-axis listening as well as Magicos?
Eric, Revel speakers have some of the best off axis measurements in the industry regardless of cost. They blend their driver intergration better than most too.  
Bel Canto DAC3.5VB MK2
I  owned this dac, and a dac 3.7, it does digitize the analog signal, I used my dac as a pre amp with my turntable for years, even though the IDEA of it sounds wrong, the overall sound quality is very good. I auditioned many analog pre amps that a... 
Perfect speakers for audio Research Classic 30
What kind of music do you listen to? How large is the room? Floor standers or bookshelves? The new Revel F36 speakers are killer for 2k retail and are over 90db efficient.  I know multiple people who run revel and ARC to great results.  
Vampire Wire Xhadow XLR Plug MULTIPLE DEFECTIVE PLUGS!!

Raidho speakers with Audio Research Tube amps
The the new Revel 226 be would be asweome, (90db efficient) how big is your room? I tried the Arc St 80  with the revel 228  to great results in a smaller room, the Ref 75 has a much larger power supply so it should have even more control. The sou...

Which one? Paradigm persona 3f, Revel Studio2, Audiosolution Figaro L, Goldenear reference
The people here saying the revel 228 do not image well are blowing my mind, that's EXACTLY what they do so well in my room. The width and front to back separation and precise placement of instruments on the stage are some of the best I have heard ... 
Preamp Output Capacitor: Mundorf Supreme vs. Supreme Silver Oil
Exactly Ralph, my Amps use four 2.2 value caps per monoblock, one for each tube. When running just a single large cap the sound is definitely shelved off in the highs, scymbals sound rounded off for an example. Adding .22 value caps opens the amps... 
Preamp Output Capacitor: Mundorf Supreme vs. Supreme Silver Oil
And that's why it's a personal preference, in my system bypasses made my system sound more real, not less. It has nothing to do with fake hyped detail.  
Preamp Output Capacitor: Mundorf Supreme vs. Supreme Silver Oil
With my Rogue audio m180 darks they are traditional push pull transformer based tube  amps. I have tried both options, with and without bypasses. The coupling caps in my amps are 2.2 value and sound more open with greater extension and air with .2... 
Preamp Output Capacitor: Mundorf Supreme vs. Supreme Silver Oil
Audio research uses bypass caps and their products sound amazing. It must come down to personal preference.  
Focal Aria 948, Revel F208, Tekton Double Impact
Soundermn, you nailed it, the Tektons have a fun sound, but they are not coherent sounding and  the drivers are not anywhere near as blended as the revels. This is something that needs to get talked about more, no frequency sticks out or smears ov...
