West Coast Audiophiles ?
I'm in North Bay about 35 minutes south of you. Are your DI's the 8 ohm version? I would love to hear the Atma-Sphere monoblocks on them. Music Reference RM-200 would be interesting as well. Both are balanced differential designs. If interested le... 
West Coast Audiophiles ?
Where in the Bay Area do you live? I have a wide assortment of amps including the Music Reference line mentioned by bdp24, Atma-Sphere, and others. What speakers are you using? 
On/Off switch for RM_9 Mk1 does anyone know the voltage that isneeded for switch?
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//www.jensen-transformers.com/product/pi-2xx/  
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. 
Recommended Speaker List for Atma-Sphere OTL Amplifiers.
I have had a number of people listen to my Jazz Modules. One in particular who is pretty well known in the audio world mentioned that they sounded better than the German and other exotic horns he has heard. If you do visit Duke and hear his speake... 
Balanced v unbalanced input to Ayre preamps
Ralph's (Atmasphere) comments regarding a differential balanced circuit eliminating cable artifacts is based on the balanced design supporting the 600 ohm standard, as Atmasphere designs do. It is my understanding that not all balanced designs sup...
