The New Spendor Classic 1/2
I've also been a long time Spendor owner having started with 3/1, then 7/1, and finally 1/2e. I had my first pair of 1/2e for 6 years and then just recently repurchased a set. I see the new version has some significant changes to it and while I ha... 
Lightspeed Attenuator - Best Preamp Ever?
Thanks George, what about a battery PS. 
Lightspeed Attenuator - Best Preamp Ever?
I had some time to kill so I decided to re-red this entire thread (I sure do miss Paul). I'm not on Audiogon much anymore, but have to say that the Lightspeed is still with me and getting its fair share of use. I've been looking to upgrade the PS ... 
Hornshoppe "the Truth" preamp - any opinions?
I bought one of these several years ago and started this thread about it: That being said mine now needs to find a good home.  
Tekton Double Impacts
I was the Audiogon member that greg22lz referenced. I will say this about the DI's, in addition to being a great value, I think they could be one of the most versatile speakers I have heard when it comes to amp/speaker matching. We listened to a h...

No problem Eric. Also Roger and Ryan are usually at the shop from 1pm to 7pm PT M - F. I'm there usually after 2pm PT but not every weekday. Saturday and Sunday and spend a bit more time there.

If you're Troy and left us a message the other day we'll be getting back to you tomorrow. We have switches but need some additional information. bdp24 - that's my old number. I now have a Bay Area number.  
Pairing Planar Speakers With A Subwoofer (Eminent Technology)
I don't know much about the Eminent speakers but they have always intrigued me. I currently have two sets of ESLs. Quad ESL 57s and Music Reference ESLs. I shied away from subwoofers because I thought they made things a bit too complex and I never...

Member's recommendations for tube amplification
I'm back for a moment as Ralph contacted me about the thread. For Bill, first of all I was not upset with your comments. I think Charles summed it up nicely. I left here a while ago because of the misinformation I kept seeing over and over again a... 
Member's recommendations for tube amplification
I'm not disputing Ralph's observation. I'm just saying there's too much emphasis placed on headroom in a 2-channel system. I have used low power SET amps with a variety of speakers and with the ability to measure output while music is playing coul... 
Member's recommendations for tube amplification
I used to own the original Micro ZOTL and used it on high efficiency speakers and it did quite well, were talking 98 - 104 dB. Again, I think a lot has to do with how large your room is and how loud you listen.The ESL panels I am using now have ad... 
Member's recommendations for tube amplification
I don't post much here anymore but sometimes follow a thread or two. This one piqued my interest because it mentioned a couple of my favorite amps. It also piqued my interest because I think there are a few points by other posters that should be r... 
Atma-Sphere MP1 with single-ended inputs and outputs? Adapters OK?
You can use the adapters or have an XLR > RCA cable made. Another option are these which I use:¬†http://http//  
Has anyone considered rebuying a speaker you once owned??
Just repurchased a pair of Spendor 1/2e speakers and they are everything I remembered them to be when I sold them 7 years ago. I alternate listening to them with Quad ESL-57s.
