Speaker advice for listening to Blues music
I have a pair of 2 way stand mounts (speaker art super clefs) with custom cabinets by Lee Taylor that I may be listing. Excellent dynamics with better bass than some floor standers I’ve owned. Been using them in a 12x13 room with great results. Yo... 
I want a streamer
Had the Node 2 and the Node 2i. For a fraction of the price and better sound (imo) get a Klipsch Gate for $30 bucks off Amazon or for $150 get the Power Gate which is a streamer and integrated amp utilizing class d hypex modules. I dont use the am... 
Upgrade integrated within the $600 - 1k Range
+1 for Vincent also would look at the Denon pma 800ne and the new Integrated's from Iota. There is a newly listed Hegel H80 on here within your budget which is a solid performer if looking to buy used. 
Opinions and recommendations on active loudspeakers
Dutch and Dutch 8c’s would be my choice if I were to spend more than 10k.

Pulsars and the Mythical Armchair Speaker Maker
“If you consider the cost of buying the drivers, paying somebody to do the box and the cost of dsp amps, thats an indication of the approximate cost.”I’m aware of all of that but you still didnt answer my question. What’s the number? I’ll even set... 
Pulsars and the Mythical Armchair Speaker Maker
I ask because I had a pair of Ryan Audio R610’s that were great...actually they were better than great and very well reviewed. Ryan Audio makes all of their own drivers in house and I believe they also make their cabinets and binding posts. Amazin...

Kenjit if a speaker retails for $8k how much should a designer have wrapped up in parts cost to make it a value in your opinion? 
Pulsars and the Mythical Armchair Speaker Maker
I wish someone would start a speaker co. invest in the tech to develope their own drivers, build quality custom cabinets and then design and bring to market a speaker that sounds better than the Pulsars and sell them for the cost of materials. I’d...
