Why no interest in reel to reel if you're looking for the ultimate sound?
@glupson, I have one of those Tascam DATs, recorded many a show with it. Some phenomenal tapes that I occasionally still play today.While I agree that reel tape is not for everyone, one thing I learned is that to really appreciate what tape can so... 
More Power or use subwoofer to boost bass for music
(At RMAF 2017, Schitt was displaying in the room next to ours. I proposed a trade: a pair of my speakers for one of their amps. They declined; apparently my speakers aren't worth a Schitt... sorry, couldn't resist... ) @audiokinesis - Well ... 
What to upgrade to?
Dale Pitcher's speaker are very good. He puts a lot of work into designing and building them. The Artisan Fidelity tables are very good as well. It's been a while, like almost 25 years, but I used to live within a few miles of Deja Vu Audio. Vu go... 
Which is better for a DBA (Swarm); powered subs or unpowered?
All of my subs are on the floor, with two at the back wall between the speakers and facing each other, about 3' apart. The others are spread out along various parts of the wall and facing toward the room. I am trying to figure out a way to get one... 
Which is better for a DBA (Swarm); powered subs or unpowered?
You are getting a lot of good advice here and in my opinion I don't think any of it is bad. In the end you have to sort through everything and decide for yourself what will work best for you. There are many ways to implement a subwoofer or distrib... 
Bought the 3 step Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solution
I went through a similar process and while I think the AI products are very good and worked well on my records, since I bought the Degritter life is so much better. The process is quick, washes and dries, records come out very clean, and you can d... 
Which is better for a DBA (Swarm); powered subs or unpowered?
Is it possible to run 4 passive subs off of one amplifier, say like a Crown XLS series? Run in series or parallel?I don't see why not. It appears the power ratings spec down to a 2 ohm load. If you run two 8 ohm speakers in parallel on each channe...

@soundcheck6, sorry I missed your post. Yes the Cervantes obituary was very touching and was referenced earlier in this thread.Given the current state of affairs things are running slowly right now on the manufacturing side, but yes, we will be ma... 
Swarming!
My version of a "swarm" allowed me to get rid of all my room treatments. Quite a welcome relief. 
Which brand of 45 tubes do you use?
Even if the cut off is 120 Hz I would still opt for the M60. I crossed my ESL57 at 100 Hz and while the S30 was fine, the M60 just gave me more.A revival of the OTL-1 and a new Music Reference OTL are on the drawing board. Progress is somewhat at ... 
Which brand of 45 tubes do you use?
The S-30 is quite a nice amp and compact so it's a space savor. At a minimum I would get the power supply boost if you were to purchase one. You may also consider modifying it so the feedback loop is disconnected, even though Ralph uses an extreme... 
Recommended Speaker List for Atma-Sphere OTL Amplifiers.
In the M60s the single driver tube in the front is critical as this tube affects the DC offset function. If you ever have issues setting the DC offset, that tube should be the primary suspect. I ordered Russian tubes from Ralph a while back and ju... 
Which brand of 45 tubes do you use?
If you are interested in Berning amps then contact Linear Tube Audio. They manufacture amps based on the Berning ZOTL technology. Their ZOTL10 should work very well with your speakers and the price is just a tad over $3k. I have owned both the Atm... 
I sure miss my Quad ‘57s!
I can’t say whether the rebuilders get more bass and treble from the speaker, but there have been improvements to the power supply and the Zener clamp boards allow you to use a wider selection of amps without the fear of arcing the panels. As prev... 
What do you use to edit music metadata info
I use Metadatics as well. Very easy to use.
