Spectron Audio Out Of Business?
The LA/Orange County Audio Society is the largest such group in the country. They do monthly events at local dealers including Brooks Berdan. If you attend an event or two I’m sure you can make some friends who would be willing to give you an opin... 
The RME ADI 2-DAC 32Bit/768kHz
I found the review of measurements in Audio Science Review between the ADI-2 DAC and the ADI-2 Pro to be very interesting.  
A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
I don’t know what it is but I don’t like Audio Note equipment (post Kondo-san), except for the AN-E speakers and their DACs. Somehow they got that right, my opinion of course. That being said I have used the Lessloss DAC 2004 MkII now for 12 years... 
Daedalus Audio speakers - Muse or Muse studio
I will take the earlier versions of the Spendor Classic series over Harbeth and many other speakers anytime. I have owned the 3/1, 7/1, and 1/2e (twice) which are currently my reference box speakers. I have heard the 40.1 and I do think they are a... 
Autoformers, The Benefits in matching amp to speaker
I use a Beveridge RM-3 designed by Roger Modjeski when he worked for Beveridge Audio. The RM-3 was a companion component to the RM-1 preamp and RM-2 power supply which fed the active Beveridge Model 2SW speakers (the speakers had built in OTL amps...

Why didn't DAT tape decks succeed in the market?
My Tascam portable DAT that I recorded live shows with had both 16/44.1 and 16/48. Still have the deck and the live recordings but haven't used it in years. 
MAC Autoformers?
To clarify a bit I made reference to Class A3 operation as implemented by Jack Elliano and used in the design of his A3-500 300B/6A3 amplifier. As Jack does not design amplifiers with multiple taps, this Class A3 operation achieves similar results... 
Small or large sub for music
I hardly ever sit in the sweet spot. and I have never been concerned with getting the deepest bass. I can't think of any of my guests wanting to stack up on or behind the sweet spot either, but we all want to hear good sound wherever we are in the...

MAC Autoformers?
I neglected to mention that the 6AS7GA tubes I am using are General Electric military spec. In addition, as Roger had performed measurements and had data on the tubes he was able to match them so they were drawing an equal amount of current. Match... 
MAC Autoformers?
@atmasphere - Hi Ralph, I know we have had conversations about the 6AS7GA tubes and your comment above echoes the advice you gave me. However, Roger has a nice stock of those tubes and he asked me if I wanted to try them in the M-60s. So I took it... 
Autoformers, The Benefits in matching amp to speaker
Roger has done a drop in board modification for the Acoustat direct drive amp. The main upgrade is the elimination of the solid state input (opamp) in favor of a tube input using 3 x 6DJ8/6922 tubes. I use am using the Acoustat direct drives on my...
