Thinking about upgrading, but wondering about diminishing returns
This past fall I spent trying to get the most from what i considered decent gear. Speaker placement is still o going and i find changes in one area were compounded by tweeking speaker / sitting position.Changes were20A dedicated on 10 gage wire. D... 
Northern Idaho / Spokane area audio folk, any informal meets or interest in idea exchanges
Just a ping to bring this back up. Anyone go to the Huppin's  deal this past year? Met a few serious audio folks there but most really skittish  
Anyone heard the difference between Cullen Crossover and his new Crossover II?
milpai,Thanks for the feedback, glad to hear you found a win with the cord on your preamp 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
There isnt much about room treatments around here. Hopefully a serious thread could get started. Less about having the perfect room, but how people are treat imperfect spaces. In theory altering how any of these amps perform.  
What I miss about vintage gear
I've toyed with the idea of the Magnum Dynalab Etude, also thought about gutting something like an old VTL amp as a façade. Have to believe the circuit wouldn't be difficult to just engage a pair of meters, just don't have those design skills. I c... 
Looking for ideas - new mono blocks for stereo music
Another vote to consider the bhk 300. Been lusting for them. Luckily they arrive next week, going to be a momumental upgrade 
Planning out a PS-Audio Stack, seeking advice balance of hardware vs dollars avalible
jackd,Thanks for sharing. I was going go the 250 route and started talking with my dealer about goals and such. End result was he felt I’d really be happy with the stereo, but is convinced I would appreciate the deeper wider soundstage of the mono...

viper6, thanks for the suggestions. The new stuff is already paid for and hopefully shipping out today. I heard Arc tubes and a Luxman stereo amp on someone elses Elipsa Se’s I wasn’t impressed. Like the sound of my Elipsa’s with my old amp better... 
Auditioning Elipsa SE tomorrow, getting my ducks in a row, am I missing anything
4 months later. I'm loving the Elipsa Se even with my old Arcam integrated. Got my old M+K sub in the mix and it really adds. Set the sub on the B speaker output so easy to take it in and out. Everyone can hear the difference, its night and day Ad... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I've been following for some time in the shadows.What I like about this thread is I'm able to hear lots of gear through a single set of ears. Not my ears, maybe not by tastes, or even likes but I'm able to do +1, -1 from some other referenced piec... 
Planning out a PS-Audio Stack, seeking advice balance of hardware vs dollars avalible
jackd,Thanks for the feedback. I've had that thought regarding my power although I've not found anyone else to voice it. If a regenerator can be essentially removed from the equation, it opens lots of other doors. Like you mention other decisions ... 
Ps Audio BHK preamp Vs ARC best preamps
It sounds like some of you have gone the route of the BHK 250, added the preamp, then upgraded the mono's.Has anyone compared the 250 with Preamp, vs  just the mono's without the preamp?My budget just supports either or, I just can't make it to th... 
Auditioning Elipsa SE tomorrow, getting my ducks in a row, am I missing anything
The speakers arrived in wonderful shaped. OK, not so much arrived, but rather retrieved. They quickly made they way to Spokane, then began transfers between shippers and lots of delay. Finally, hey can I just will call these? Picked them up the ne... 
Auditioning Elipsa SE tomorrow, getting my ducks in a row, am I missing anything
Had hoped to get a tracking number today. Guessing 7-10 days to get them.For now no decisions until I get them hooked up. Will run without sub and original cables, then roll in the new cables and enable the sub in steps and see how it all fits. Th... 
Auditioning Elipsa SE tomorrow, getting my ducks in a row, am I missing anything
off topicdavid,I’d love to support local dealers. I traveled to see one of 2 pairs of SE’s that I found for sale in the US. Went to see a demo pair and was prepared to come home with them. I thought I was going to the SF dealer, turned out was not...
