Basis Turntables: Worth it or Ripoff?
First off, thanks for sharing guys.  I too have Primary Progressive MS.  The Mandell MS Center in Hartford, CT is on the cutting edge of things.  I started with Howard Weiner as my primary doc.  He was the best for me when I started this journey. ... 
Vandersteen Kento Specs Released
lol... too funny Jim.  It's true though.  Bob, yes, I'm should be able to go, health considering.  Spoke with someone else about Kento last night.  He said they are as good as any 50k speaker he's ever heard.  That takes up a lot of territory, lol... 
Vandersteen Kento Specs Released
It's not the same base at all.  Design is similar (HRS in there I think), but it's contoured to the speakers as you can see.  Richard has already started his tour of the country for the Kento.  Pretty cool.  I know he'll be at Audio Connection in ... 
Basis Turntables: Worth it or Ripoff?
Funny as I found this thread for some reason.  I know it's old, but it's still relevant.  I sold my 1400 to Tomic.  I miss it e very day.  It was the best TT under 5000 that I auditioned.  Yes, ti was that good as he states and that's the disconti...

Bob, that will be fun for you I'm sure.  I can't wait to hear the Kēnto.

No problems at all.  Jeff and I didn't always agree on things we heard.  We liked some of the same gear, but not all.  Both of us know what we heard with the 9H's and have heard at others places.  This is now the first time you have brought up the...

The mid and mid woofer are woven fiber units.  The bass is a carbon/celluos cone.Richard went with those 7 drivers (also matched to the same tolerances I bet to get identical L/R speakers.  I was told that it is very close to the 7's and not to th...

I just spoke with two folks who spent considerable time in the Audio Alternative room with Vandersteen.  Both were amazed.  They do use the same top drivers as the 7's and also use the 7 amp.  they have the same type of HRS vibration control and t...

So the Kēnto has been released to the wild.  Rick had an amazing set up at the RMAF from what I was told by a few who attended.  Heard that the new push pull aluminum woofers mated with the same carbon fiber drivers of the 7 is a killer combo.  Ca...

I can see where many wouldn't like the woofer cover.  That said, I have my Quatro's painted in black metallic.  I promise you that you wouldnt' even see the cover in that paint job.  you can also get the lighter colored or gray colored cloth's.  I... 
Got to visit Audio Alternatives
Heard that the Kēnto really blew folks out of the water.  Told they they will quickly become the go to under 40k for many.  I can't wait to hear them.  Very exciting times.

Troy, you constantly try to poke holes in so many who feel they are tipped up adn fatiguing regardless of upstream equipment.  You sell them so of course you are going to make excuses.  I went to your place to hear them with Jeff (RIP buddy) and n...

Contuzzi,I feel strongly that you are way off base.  We all hear differently and therefore enjoy different speakers and gear.  I get sick of hearing about terrible sets up, poor sounding rooms etc... I've heard them set up in very good to poor roo... 
Any love for the Belles Aria or other recent Belles amplifier?
He is a great designer.  Many great ones out there, but most folks don't know about their gear etc...  This is why the brick and mortar stores are so important and why I frequent them when purchasing.  You can hear gear and how it pairs with what ... 
Disappointed w/ Klipsch Heresy III. Now what?
The best sub I've heard under 5k is the Vandersteen Sub 3.  It has the same amp with an 11 band EQ built in.  Roughly the same one I have built into my Quatro's.  You can dial it in no matter your situation.  Unlike digital EQ, you can't hear it a...
