Eminent Technology LFT8B’s reversing woofer polarity
Likewise, all info is much appreciated, good sir -- really key insight shared here.  Also, fun to find a gathering of fellow LFT-ists :).  I'm off to experiment with positioning again, with less toe in this time, as per your suggestion.  Bruce men... 
Eminent Technology LFT8B’s reversing woofer polarity
Not to hijack this thread, but many thanks to bdp24 for all your past posts about the LFT-8Bs -- I ended up purchasing a new pair a couple years ago from someone who purchased them but never ended up using them due to life changes (lucky find).  F... 
R.I.P: Rest In Peace Roy Johnson, Green Mountain Audio's Genius
I want to share the future logo of GMA with the community. I’ve been rolling around the idea of posting this for a while, being unsure if it's appropriate for a memorial thread. However, I think GMA patrons would be interested in what they would h... 
R.I.P: Rest In Peace Roy Johnson, Green Mountain Audio's Genius
I'm in shock.  I had been trying to get in touch with him via text, email, and phone over the past week, and became increasingly concerned because he wasn't getting back to me, which is highly uncharacteristic. Just last night I decided to goog... 
Keces 131.2 versus PS Audio Digital Link III
Great, thanks for the opinion Rotarius! I've decided to give the DLIII a try. 
Keces 131.2 versus PS Audio Digital Link III
Well I value detail retrieval, distinct placement, sound stage, and depth... this would be my top priority for upgrading.Would you say the DLIII would be an upgrade over the Keces in those regards? Which did you prefer overall in your system? 
Keces 131.2 versus PS Audio Digital Link III
I just looked for the review at 6moons. I found a couple articles talking of Keces, but no direct comparisons to the PS Audio. Perhaps I missed it... I often find the layout of the 6Moons site counter intuitive. 
Keces 131.2 versus PS Audio Digital Link III
@ Rotarius - Your the first person I've heard from that has sampled both the Keces and the PS Audio. I am thinking about selling my Keces in favor of a new PS Audio... is the DLIII a worthy upgrade to the Keces? Did you find it to be an upgrade ov... 
Passive preamp vs. powered
Wow, lots of responses - thanks for the input everyone.Am I off in my hypothesis that the input impedence on an amplifier would make all the difference in the world? I mean, as this varies, it will react differently to a given output level of the ... 
need suggestions for GMA C1 match
Right now I have a modified Yamaha M80... upgraded binding posts and power cord.It's nice... but upgrading from a 120wpc M40 to a 250wpc M80 seemed to yield zero difference in sound quality... at least at any SPLs that my ears could handle.So, I'm... 
ATI vs Yamaha
nobody knows? 
Is this clipping or just high SPL?
Ya... its all too relative to put definites on.I do think that I have been listening to my speakers very politely though... the other day I gave them a bit more power than usual and things weren't really loud or harsh, but just had more impact and... 
Is this clipping or just high SPL?
Thanks for the info Shadorne.I guess I would need to test my DB to get a sense of where I'm at. There are DB charts with examples scattered about, but I'm not sure how the loudness of these compares to that of a lawnmower from 3 feet away or that ... 
Is this clipping or just high SPL?
Gotcha - thanks guys.I just listened again at a slightly lower volume and worked my way back up... because this was driving me nuts.It sounds fine, actually... I think I'm just not used to playing at higher SPL's than what I'm used to... in fact I... 
Is this clipping or just high SPL?
Yup - "Time"...But the rated power handling of Green Mountain Audio Continuum 1s is around 200-250 watts I think... so I shouldn't even be close to distorting my tweeter or midrange with a Yamaha M-40 (120wpc) at 3/4 volume.. right? Any distortion...
