Where are the Exogal Vortex streamers?
For now, though, let me put it this way: would you be more frustrated if we released a buggy product that's vulnerable to evolution, or if it's delayed until it's right and future proofed? I can say from a recent experience with another manufact... 
How does RIAA pre-emphasis work on reducing record noise?
Well I’ve known Roger to pose questions when he wants to find out what someone really knows about a topic. However, in this case I think it’s more of a teaching moment. At some point this will come to a conclusion and we’ll know for sure. 
How does RIAA pre-emphasis work on reducing record noise?
@rauliruegas: I for one appreciate your efforts to sift through all of the information here and especially Roger's posts. Specifically you noted what I am starting to think is one of Roger's main points which he has mentioned to me a number of tim... 
How does RIAA pre-emphasis work on reducing record noise?
BTW, @clio09 Your comments about Al are un-called for. I respectfully disagree. On another point, I am glad to see you are continuing to post your thoughts on this topic and look forward to Roger's response. It's all Latin to me but maybe I will f... 
How does RIAA pre-emphasis work on reducing record noise?
Apparently it wasn’t clear that what I meant was that **I** have read widely on relevant subjects.Doesn't change the opinions on my end.             
How does RIAA pre-emphasis work on reducing record noise?
In my 40 years as an audiophile, and one who is fairly widely read... Widely read by whom? If you are going to take on someone like Roger let’s start with those facts. I sincerely hope you don’t mean your posse of Audiogon minions because quite fr... 
How does RIAA pre-emphasis work on reducing record noise?
I took along a simple generator, RIAA inverse box and dual voltmeter. I did a quick sweep and found even in the less expensive units the EQ was dead on. @lewm: perhaps I am misinterpreting what you said regarding conforming to RIAA but it appea... 
How does RIAA pre-emphasis work on reducing record noise?
How do you explain that? are you just a troller or your OP was started in " good shape " where you want to share valuable information to this [email protected]: I think you are smart enough to know he is not a troller. He has designed and built... 
Electrostatic pros and cons.
If you get an amp with a 2 ohm rating for power, it will easily drive 'stats. That is a very broad and somewhat incorrect statement - depending on the ESL we are talking about (and I am talking about ESL, not ribbon or planar magnetic which are di... 
Tekton Design's new THE PERFECT SET equals "goosebumps time"
Fritz and I have done a number of shows together pairing his speakers (Carbon 7 and Carrera) with a 12 watt 300B SET amp. The whole thing happened by accident as the first show we did together the original amp we were going to use had an issue, so... 
Electrostatic pros and cons.
Electrostatics are very fast and transparent. Can any woofer match?Yes but my experience is with a bi-amp set up and woofer array. I think the Sander’s Sound speakers are a great example of a hybrid speaker. The Martin Logan speakers I have heard,... 
Electrostatic pros and cons.
@bdp24: Yes that was him and those were the speakers. IIRC Sean told me he worked on the Beveridge 4.In addition to being on the side walls the speakers were positioned equidistant from the front and back walls. You could sit on either side of the... 
Electrostatic pros and cons.
You don't want hybrids because you will never achieve the proper integrationI can say that hasn't been my experience. 
Electrostatic pros and cons.
If tech talk is off the table, that's all I have to [email protected]: I think the technical aspect of the ESL is quite important. The Beveridge lens revolutionized how ESL's sound, especially as it applies to sound dispersement and I'm not sure... 
105db/W high efficiency speaker suitable for low power SET
Interesting speaker, but more interesting to me is they indicate they are the US distributor for Analysis Audio speakers which are based on Apogee designs. I have always been interested in those speakers so will give them a call just for that but ...
