My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
mrdecibel, I agree with you.  I find any dealer, who comes on a forum without being forthright about his conflict of interest and start trashing another competitor's product, worthy of being banned.  I have not heard the GT Audio works yet, but I ... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Am I the only one who finds it unethical and distasteful when a dealer shills his speaker (GT Audio Works) with underhanded comments over another similar speaker (Alsyvox)? #Faxer 
Mac Mini as a music server
I’d recommend you contact Eric Hider at dB Audiolabs. I have his modified Mac mini server which has significant changes in the Mac OS for audio playback, latest hardware upgrades, with option for battery power supply.  It’s a night and day differe... 
Anyone heard the Alsyvox Botticelli planar speakers?
Hi kucharsk7 I'll have a chance to listen to the Botticelli soon. It's a dream speaker for sure.  Several feedback/reviews of the speaker mentioned bass similar to cone bass with all the slam missing in other planar speakers.As far as Carver's ... 
DC Offset Blocker/Killer - where to buy in the USA
“Sounds like they are jerking you off with no happy ending.”  Stereo5Sounds like you’re speaking from experience. Lol! 
DC Offset Blocker/Killer - where to buy in the USA
I had same problem with my amps due to DC offset in the AC.  I tried AVA DC blocker. It did work, but the bass dynamics became restricted, and sound was lifeless.  I couldn’t live with those compromises.  Van Alstine tried to convince me it was al... 
Anyone heard the Alsyvox Botticelli planar speakers?
the Soundkaos - Liberatiohttp://www.6moons.com/audioreviews2/soundkaos2/1.htmlLooks like ET and Dalquest DQ10 had a baby. But seriously, I hope to hear a pair in the US. 
Anyone heard the Alsyvox Botticelli planar speakers?
Unfortunately, I was wrong. I don’t think Alsyvox will be at AXPONA next year.Will check out Soundkaos. Thanks.

Anyone heard the Alsyvox Botticelli planar speakers?
Scorpio1951, I’m an apogee fan myself. I think Alsyvox may be at AXPONA next year so you won’t have to go to Europe.  Would love to visit Valencia, Spain. Seems like a beautiful place. 
Anyone heard the Alsyvox Botticelli planar speakers?
Lalitk, I’m kicking myself for not attending RMAF this year. I was so close to going, but decided not to. I’ve yet to hear anything negative about this speaker, other than it’s price. The only planar speakers in this price range are the ML Neolith... 
Anyone heard the Alsyvox Botticelli planar speakers?
Roberjerman, I get your sarcasm. The Carver ALS is a fantastic speaker and competes with the ultra expensive speakers over $100k I’ve heard. However, I’ve always been a die hard planar speaker fan, especially Apogee.  This is the Apogee speaker th... 
Anyone heard the Alsyvox Botticelli planar speakers?
Shkong78, are you sure about pricing? 60.9k Euro minus VAT is little over 50k Euro.  
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
@viber6,I almost completely agree with you about Apogees sounding too smooth and rolled off. Unfortunately, 99% of the time they’re not set up correctly. IMO the only person who knew how to setup Apogees was the late Jason Bloom who owned the comp... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
@viber6,yes, I have auditioned the Wisdom Audio Adrenaline several times. Its sound is majestic, but I’ve always heard a subtle coloration or veiling that made it less transparent compared to the best electrostatics and ribbon speakers.  You may a...
