Speaker cables which bring out more bass?
I'll throw my hat in here as well. I'm using a pair of Revelation Audio Testament speaker cables and definetlynoticed an improvement in bass. Not just more of it butbetter defintion as well. Very quiet as well.Cmach

CJ vs. BAT vs. THOR preamps, who's best?
I've used a CJ 17LS on my BAT VK500 without a problem.This would be a nice combo if you like a more relaxedand slightly laid back sound. If your considering aCJ preamp I would recommend a listen to the CJ CT-5.I just replaced my 17LS with the CT-5... 
Tube preamp with DNA-500
I agree with Chuck on this one. My current pre-amp isa CJ CT5 and the two match very well together.My previous pre-amp was the CJ Premier 17LS and it dida repespectable job too. I find the new CJ pre-ampsto be better fit sonically for the 500 than... 
Velodyne DD's flying out of owners' houses
Well I have owned a DD-10 for a couple of years andhave had no problems with it all. I let a friend ofmine borrow my sub for a few weeks. He was so impressedwith it that he went out and purchased a DD-10 for himself.About 2 weeks later he had a pr... 
McCormack DNA-225 Platinum and McCormack DNA-500
If I remember correctly the stock DNA 500 includes all the mods already in the Platinum upgrade and then some. Also I do believe that the DNA 500 is a different amp from the 125/225 series. That being said I don't think youcould go wrong with eith... 
Velodyne DD: 10 or 12?
Yeah I have heard that as well. Its nonsense. I reallydon't understand why Velodyne says stuff like that. It undermines what are IMO great products. If your leaningtoward a DD-10 or 12 don't hesitate. They are excellentsubwoofers despite what Velo... 
Power Amp to Match CJ Premier 17LS
I have owned the 17LS for a couple of years before upgradingto the CJ CT5. My 17LS worked well with a BAT VK500 andmy current McCormack DNA 500. I agree with Czbbcl that youshould not write off anohter CJ amp. Take a look at aCJ MF2500A (make sure... 
Velodyne DD: 10 or 12?
From what I have seen on my friends DD-12 the finishseems pretty durable. Of course if your concerned aboutfinger prints and other blemishes the Cherry would bethe better choice. Cmach 
Velodyne DD: 10 or 12?
Hi Kck,I have had a DD-10 setup for music only in my 12x12 room.I love it and have been very impressed with its performance.A friend of mine recently got a DD-12. Its a wonderful suband its noticably stronger in the bass region than theDD-10 as yo... 
Upgrade from CJ Premier 18ls
I agree with Czbbcl. A used 17LS, 17LS2 or a 16LS would give you everything your looking for and then some.I had my 17LS for a couple of year before switching tothe CJ CT5 and enjoyed it a lot. I do recommend replacingthe stock tubes though. Good ... 
B&W 703 - How to tame the highs?
Are these new speakers? If so they will require a certainamount of time to break in. My Sig 805's were a bitharsh at first too. Another thing to look at would beyour speaker cables and interconnects. Try swapping themand see how that affects thing... 
Anyone listen to the new Conrad Johnson CT5 preamp

Tubes for a Conrad Johnson 17LS?
I would definetly recommend switching the stock tubes.As Tvad posted earlier he let me borrow a set of Philipsminiwats and the difference they made was amazing. The Philips were much quieter and had better bass extension. The midrange was more def...
