|Queen any one ???|
The gold discs are sonically superior than the regular CDs. I love Live Killers, but it was recorded so poorly, I don't listen to it very often but Freddie's talent still comes through. What a voice he had! Add Killer Queen, Jazz and News of the W...
|Audio as a hobby|
I love hiking to high mountain lakes here in Colorado and flyfishing for Cutthroat and Brook trout. There's just something about being at 13,000 feet and having a lake all to yourself. Unfortunately it is a seasonal hobby. I definitely spend much ...
|Something More Efficient than Revel Studios?|
If you ever heard the Avantgarde Unos or Duos, I think you would forget about the luxurious wooden cabinets. I know I have! Granted, the Avantgardes visually are an aquired taste but looks ain't everything. I heard both the Revels and the Avantgar...
|What do you think about Marsh amps?|
I owned a Marsh A200s and thought it was a great amp. Solidly built and IMO sonically superior to anything in it's price range. Very smooth top end for solid state. I don't think you could go wrong with either the 400 or the 200.
|Kharma or Avalon|
I agree wholeheartedly with S2k dude. If you're going with either the Avalons or the Kharmas I would seriously consider replacing the Aragon. In my experience, Both are fantastic speakers but only when partnered with the right electronics. If you'...
|Anyone heard the new Sony SACD player?|

|Digital front end for Bryston/Thiels??|
How much are you looking to spend?
|best dealer to buy a avalon speaker|
There is no denying John Barnes of Audio Unlimited has put together an unbelievable set up with the Accuphase/Boulder/Eidolon. The room this combo is in is state of the art as well. Absolutely amazing. I only wish they would have had a pair of Opu...
|Avalon or ProAc?|
1. Avalon Eidolon. They should be #1 considering the $100k worth of gear they were hooked up to, but the best combo I have ever heard. Absolutely amazing!2. Avantgarde Duo. Unbelievable clarity and soundstage plus great bass. 103 dB sensitivity, 8...
|Avalon or ProAc?|
Art,The reason I am using my "intellect" is that the only Avalon dealer in Colorado doesn't have the particular Avalon model that I am interested in. That is why I was asking about things like imaging, soundstaging and bass response. Anyway, I wen...
|Best speaker with tubes?|
I would have to go with the Avantgardes. 15 watts can make these babies sing.
|Best Male Singers of the 20th Century|
As far as "crooners" go, I would say Tony Bennett. R&B/Soul, Marvin Gaye without a doubt. In rock I would give it to Freddie Mercury. If I had to choose one, it would be Freddie. The guy was on another level IMO.
