Why the fascination with subwoofers?
Can someone define for me what "tight" bass is.

Why the fascination with subwoofers?
I am a former AudioKinesis owner and really respect Duke's work. His Swarm is a great system. I took a similar path as I wanted smaller drivers and boxes. I use 8" drivers in 0.4 cu. ft. sealed boxes. The four boxes sit at various spots in the roo...

@inna it would probably be beneficial to have someone close to you do any work on your deck if possible. Prior to my finding someone local to me who works on Paul Stubblebine's decks I bought a Pelican case for my Otari to protect it during shippi... 
Spender classic 1/2 vs SP1
In looking at the specs on the Classic 1/2 I do see that it is designed as a traditional 3-way vs. the 1/2e which is a 2.5 way essentially. Robert E. Greene does have a lot of great information on some of the earlier Spendor designs including the ... 
Spender classic 1/2 vs SP1
I have not heard the new Classic 1/2, but I have been a long time Spendor owner. Started with the 3/1 back in 1996. Moved on to the 7/1, and then settled on the 1/2e. I eventually sold the 1/2e in 2008 to make room for a pair of AudioKinesis Jazz ... 
IFI iDSD Pro
I had a similar experience as you. The Muzo app is horrible and I could never get it to work on iOS, but ran okay on my Android phone. The only other recommendation they had was Bubble but that is also Android only compatible. Using a SD card was ... 
Information for Joule Electra Preamp LA 200
Hi Bob, unfortunately no, sold it quite a few years ago, but enjoyed my time with it. 
Kickstarter for all analog "No Filter"
I would certainly be interested in a 15 ips IEC copy of the tape if it is made available.  
How often do you have to service your Studer or Otari deck ? Home not pro environment.
I have two Otari decks, one a transport only (signal direct from the heads) and the other I use to record. The 5050's are work horses and I use mine a lot. I have no problem finding tapes at reasonable costs and I trade a lot which is also an econ... 
Phoenix Engineering Roadrunner
Check this thread:https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/pheonix-engineering-road-runner/post?highlight=phoenix%2Broad...Looks like SOTA is going to be taking over production. Perhaps you can call them to see if they can help you. 
RIAA, Questions only please
Your last post makes no sense and is useless and does not makes any real contribution to this thread.Perhaps not from your point of view, but you did ask what the purpose of the OP’s thread was (both of them) and I posted what I recall to be one o... 
RIAA, Questions only please
@ramtubes : What is the purpose or your target on both OP's threads?I think he makes it very clear. Now whether I understand or agree with all the technical aspects is another matter.I don't get yet in which way your threads can help any one of us... 
RIAA, Questions only please
@uberwaltz: I said there were 3 experts, but I never said I agreed with any of them or that their opinions were the only valid ones. I just happen to feel these 3 people have the most to offer to the discussion and they are people whose knowledge ...
