Considering an integrated
Accuphase E6XX. I have an E600 I got as a demo for cheap. It's lovely. 
Chinese knock-off headphone amps
I'll sell you an early Schitt Lyr that's been used for a total of about 2 hours and is in perfect condition if you want a head amp. I loved it but it drove my wife crazy. I'll thrown in the AKG 702's ( I think that's the model) and a headphone hol... 
Accuphase C-200, X, L, V What is the difference?
There's very few Accuphase owners here. Most say they're over priced in the US but those same people have never heard one. My friend is a local dealer so I got a demo E600 integrated years back and I've been away from Agon ever since. I fell off t... 
New Dynaudio Heritage Special..?..!
The speaker looks awesome. I wouldn't expect any less snooty responses from this crowd. They make coffee snobs look like angels. This entire website needs electroshock therapy.  
Economical full-range floor-standing speaker options?
The CeLests are now on sale for $3995 as of 1.23.21. Can you confirm these are rear ported? I'm assuming they are but they only say they're ported and I can't tell where the port is.  
Bookshelf Speaker Stand Difference?
I had a totally different experience with stands and my Harbeth C7's and then HL5 Plus. I had stands for my C7's that are quite popular amongst Harbeth owners. I had them filled with sand. They came with small rubber dots stuck to the top of them.... 
Upgrade Hegel H300 to Luxman 590AXii or else
"Actually Hegel H300 is a very good amp , But It is like I want something new and provide me more musical, sweet or emotion to relax,"I've been there with Hegel. If you don't play music loud, the Luxman will give you what you're looking for. 
ISO Pucks with Harbeth and Sklyan Stands
@ericsch I thought that as well until I got rid of the Skylans. I'm not sure why anyone would question why a thin walled speaker would not sound better if the top the stand it sat upon was open. Do people consider the bottom of the speaker differe... 
ISO Pucks with Harbeth and Sklyan Stands
Good luck. When you get sick of it refer back to my post. I spent two years dealing with those stands. You can have all my q bricks, Herbie's, ISO pucks, cat litter, lead shot and all the other baloney that's been thrown out there. My wife was mad... 
ISO Pucks with Harbeth and Sklyan Stands
I fell into the Skylan trap with my old C7es-3's. Stay away from the Harbeth forum when it comes to recommendations on things like this (seriously). I now have the Super HL5 Plus and I have learned a lot about stands for Harbeth speakers. Put thos... 
Luxman integrated for Harbeth Compact 7's
I think you'll be glad you didn't go with a Hegel. I had the big Hegel with your speakers and it was a bit thin sounding. I now have HL5 Plus and Accuphase E-600 and I'm done for a long time. I'm not knocking Hegel, just the combo of Hegel and Har... 
Harbeth Super HL5 plus Break-in
I will tell you that your stands will make all the difference in the world with the Super HL5's. I'm not sure what you have those speakers sitting on but the bottom of the speakers needs to be sitting on something that has an open bottom. If you'r... 
What integrated should I upgrade to?
Good choice with the Luxman. I had Hegel and I wasn't a fan of the build quality or sound. Luxman is on a different level. I have an Accuphase, also on a different level. 
Should people who can't solder, build or test their speakers be considered audiophiles?
What a slap across the face to all the members. 
Melody Gardot - From Paris With Love (new single)
My wife and I have been big fans for years. Saw her in Philly once. Amazing show. If you've never seen her live, I would highly recommend it when the covid is over.
