|Inexpensive speaker cables|
At the price range I would also try Clear Day Cables. Paul is a greatguy to deal with and most likely let you demo his cables before you buy.His cable offers a lot of band for the buck.
|Esoteric X-01 vs K-05...|
Jafant,The Modwright 999ES is a good player IMO,especially at the prices you can pick one up today. It more on the musical side of the spectrum but you can adjust the sound a bit by swapping out tubes and or power cords. Dan is still supporting th...
|Proac Studio 100 - will 35 wpc be enough?|
Chris, I power my Proac D-30R's with a pair of Manley Snappers running in triode mode. They make about 30W or so. They easily power the D-30R without any struggle whatsoever. The Studio 100's have a similar impedance so I think you should be good ...
|Need feedback on loudspeakers|
Milpai,Not sure where your located, but Audio Revelation is located in Carlsbad CA and they carry the Proac and Tannoy line. Jay is a good guy will give you his honest opinion on both lines. I purchased my D-30R's from him and have been very pleas...
|Speaker thoughts - ProAc D40R or Wilson Benesch|
Garebear,The Sound Organization located in Dallas, Texas is now the distributor for Proac. When I ordered my D-30R's they were shipped from there. I purchased mine from Jay at Audio Revelation(CA) and I can highly recommend him. By the way I did ...
|ProAc sound with SS vs tubes|
Hi Badri,I auditioned the D-20R’s with my Manley Snappers. We ran themin Ultra Linear (100W) and Triode (~30W). I actually preferred them in Triode mode. The sound was more open and balanced in my opinion.I ultimately ended up with the D-30R becau...
Milpai,Not sure if they reach down to 20Hz. They certainly are impressivefor their size. For me its always been quality over quantity when itcomes to bass. I prefer a cleaner more precise bass and I amnot a fan of bass heavy speakers. I have found...
Just thought I'd post a quick follow up on my Proac D-30's. I havehad them for a little over a month and overall I'm very pleased. Therestill breaking in. They sound a bit tight out of the box but over timethere starting to loosen up and the sound...
Amaglioc,Congratulations on the D-30R's. I have a pair on order and they should be ready for pickup next week. Looks likeyour putting together a pretty impressive system with theAudio Research gear. I'll try and post my impressionswhen I get them.
Amaglioc,When I auditioned the D-20R and D-48R I brought my ManleySnappers along. I thought they had excellent synergy together and was a big part of the decision to go withthe Proac's.
Amaglioc,Thanks so much for your feedback. After careful consideration I'm pretty much decided on the D-30Ras well. Its no longer if but when I get them. Good luckwith your purchase and keep us updated when you get them.
|Tube amp to drive Dali ms5|
I have a friend who runs his Dali Helicon 400MK2 with anAudio Research VS 115. This combo is very nice and I wouldhave no trouble recommending it. The 400MK2 and MS5 seem tohave similar specs so it could be an option worth exploring.Good luck
|What are some good tube amps that rock? KT88's?|
I'm currently using a pair of Manley Snappers to run mySignature 805's. While they don't have absolute controlof my previous amp(Moscode 401) they do sound more holographicand musical.Good luck
|Vandersteen Model 7: has anyone heard?|
I heard them at RMAF and thought they sounded pretty goodoverall. I have to say the track that was playing was godawful and made me want to head for the exit though.
|Conrad Johnson 17LS Power Cord Recommendations|
I've tried a various cords on both my 17LS and nowmy CT-5. My two favorite cords were the BMI HammerheadMK3 and a Tek-Line Reference. The MK3 cord is harder tofind these day's and its more pricey than the Tek-Line cordas well. I believe Tek Line w...
