Which amplifier should i buy
I have a Cary SLP-05 Preamp with the Ultimate Upgrade and Cardis wiring. Don’t waist your time with the SLP98 when you can get one of the best sounding preamp around. It’s a two chassis rig. I use to have Cary Audio CAD805 AE. As great that amplif...

I would definitely go with McIntosh MC2301 Monoblock amplifiers. Check them out. You will not regret it. https://www.mcintoshlabs.com/products/amplifiers/MC2301https://www.mcintoshlabs.com/products/amplifiers/MC2301https://www.listeningpost.co.nz/... 
VAC 200 iq vs Mcintosh MC2301 vs ARC Ref 160 M
Oh and by the way my preamp is Cary Audio SLP-05 with the Ultimate upgrade, tube roll and Cardas wiring.  
VAC 200 iq vs Mcintosh MC2301 vs ARC Ref 160 M
Let me tell you. I’ve had a lot of high end audio equipment over the years and the McIntosh MC2301 Monoblock amplifiers are very special. That would definitely be my choice and I have a pair sitting in my listing room. I’ve had top of the line Jef... 
Looking for my "last" CD transport
Also regarding new gear especially CD Players these days. Most of what is available as a high end transport or a CD Player are pretty much throw away items. This is what our world is coming to. From retail to being a year old, they drop out of the... 
Looking for my "last" CD transport
I think this is easy if you can handle the weight. Sony SCD-1 factory or Modified by Modwright.https://www.google.com/search?q=Sony+SCD-1+modified.&rlz=1CDGOYI_enUS630US823&oq=Sony+SCD-1+...Another is the Pioneer Elite DV-09. Fully Coppere... 
Ready, set, comment! Speaker cables don’t make a difference?
First of all, I love what Millercarbon said about him earlier, lol. Second of all, why are folks taking advice from a guy who can’t keep his room clean, lol. What a mess. Let’s get to the point here, speaker cables do make a difference. Some are m... 
One Cord To Rule Them All
Here is my thoughts. I went from a Shunyata Research Anaconda Alpha Cable to a Pangea AC-9 and then to a Pangea AC-9 SE Mk ll. The Pangea AC-9 SE Mk ll is a 7awg cable as appose to a 9awg. I found out from my system that these cables are better th... 
Opinions wanted: 10-30K Speakers for Jazz/Folk
There are so many great choices out there. I think if you have the space and don’t mind the size, I would say Martin Logan CLX with two subwoofers (Martin Logan Balancedforce or JL Audio Fathom), Wilson Audio Maxx 1, 2, or 3, Wilson Sasha Dawn, or... 
WILSON AUDIO.....BIG NAME, BIG PRICE........ARE THEY THAT GOOD?
No worries thecarpathian. I appreciate what you said. At the end of the day, I’m happy with my systems as I’m sure you and others are with yours. Jeffvegas is the one asking for help, and started this thread not you or I. You can lead the horse to... 
WILSON AUDIO.....BIG NAME, BIG PRICE........ARE THEY THAT GOOD?
Oh, I forgot to ask you. Not sure if anyone had asked. What equipment are you using? Like any other speakers out there, the equipment needs to work well with the speakers.  
WILSON AUDIO.....BIG NAME, BIG PRICE........ARE THEY THAT GOOD?
Weather Maxx 2 or not, all I’m saying is that you should give a listen that’s all. After you hear them, you will be spoiled. There are a few 1 and 2 out there. The 3 is a completely different animal. It sounds slightly better and I do mean slightl... 
WILSON AUDIO.....BIG NAME, BIG PRICE........ARE THEY THAT GOOD?
I used a 1000sq ft. Apartment in NOLA a few years ago and they sound amazing. Believe it or not, your footprint is almost the same. The Maxx speakers can angle perfectly to the seating position you want VS the others don’t do as well. Why hear som... 
WILSON AUDIO.....BIG NAME, BIG PRICE........ARE THEY THAT GOOD?
The Wilson Maxx speakers blow the Sophia and Watt Puppy 8’s away. A completely different league. 
WILSON AUDIO.....BIG NAME, BIG PRICE........ARE THEY THAT GOOD?
Jeffvegas,where do you live approximately? I have a pair of Wilson Maxx speakers converted to Maxx 2’d and I still have the original tweeters for the Maxx.
