lukewarm in my opinion - not as many exhibits as in previous years - no doubt a symptom of the crappy economy. I am also tired of seeing the same 'new' vinyl year after year - very little in the way of new releases. saw some new speakers from a Du...
|Supra Sword speakercable:|
VERY good cable - wish I never sold my pair. (financial reasons)
|Any experience with the Proac Response 5?|
Hi - I used to own the Response 4's and frankly they were one of the most disappointing speakers I have ever owned. I bought them and sold them for $9,000 USD's. They absolutely MUST be driven by tubes ( preferably triode ) and they MUST have a bi...
|b&k M200 mono amps over soundcraftsmen 5002|
In my opinion, Mr Gregory has given you very solid advice, I too have an old pair of 200's kicking around, but I can't bring myself to sell them.
|Any one have Tetras|
My friend has a pair of 406's - in a few words, they are very nice sounding speakers and are not a difficult drive. They image nicely, are very coherent & punchy, without sounding bloated. (they are not inexpensive, but nothing worthwhile is.)
|Totem Mani-2 and Sim Audio Moon|
I have a friend of mine that has both the Totem Mani-2's (Signature edition, I believe, but not positive) and either the Moon W5 or 10, again not positive - I know it is the one rated around just under 200 w/ch. - truly euphonic combination, very,...
|Beatles: Help ?|
|MIT Z-Center Power Conditioner, any comments?|
very decent unit - not the best, but @ $600 - $700 used, I would not hesitate. It's flexible too - only downside are the relatively cheap duplexes they used, which can easily be upgraded.
|Does vinyl outsell the hi rez formats?|
Oh hell yes, if it's in Stereopile, it must be gospel, right? (sorry, my sarcastic nature got the best of me . . . again. !)
|New Beatle's Remasters|
Does anybody know if these are going to be a rehash of the original British releases, or are they going to remaster the North American releases too ( Beatles 65, Something New, Beatles VI, etc.)
|Sony XA7ES to replace Ahh Tjoeb|
very nice CD Player ( @ about $900 used or so ? ) but it does suffer somewhat from having a captive Power cord. An upgraded cord WOULD benefit, but that's Sony arrogance for you.
|what's your favorite album cover?|
original sticky fingers w. working zipper.
|HDCD, any new titles coming out?|
I heard that Microsoft had bought Pacific Microsonics and that the first thing they did was to pull the plug on HDCD - I could be wrong. (in fact I hope I am, I just recently bought the Classe CDP 1 with an 'HDCD' decoder.) Anyone else hear about ...
|Counterpoint SA220 vs. modern amp|
I've had an upgraded ( from SA-20 ) SA-220 operating with the same tubes for 10 years - no problems whatsoever. I do think that $1,100 is too much for a used unit - more in the $800 - $900 range IMHO. Nice amp though.
|Sonic Frontiers Line 2SE vs. SFL2|
Hi - I own an SFL 2, and it definitely does NOT sound S.S. in my opinion. I haven't heard the Line 2, but I've heard the Line 3 - that is a beautiful sounding preamp. I've heard that of the entire Line 1, 2 & 3 series, that the Line 2 represen...
