USPS Sucks
Can we please quit talking about the last four year debacle on this forum?My experience over the last five years is no problem sending or receiving audio gear with Fed Ex and only one problem with USPS receiving small packages. I live in the India... 
Thiel Owners
Hi All,Just wanted everyone to know that I keep learning by reading this thread. and I am not through all of it yet...!One thing I have learned, know, is that the CS5i's are not bright. Feed them right and you will be rewarded.Right now, I am list... 
Best Bang for your Buck DAC ?
@twoch, duder, try not to be like me. you will get tired fast of anything under $2000.....Twoch, I agree with your assessment. There is a whole big world out there with $5,000 and up DACS. Read the end of the thread here: https://forum.audiogon.c... 
DAC Choices - $5,000 to $7,000
FWIW...A quick update on the Mojo Audio Mystique V3 compared to a Soekris 1421 and Theta ProBasic III.I have been playing all three DACs in my system for about two weeks now. Perfectwave Transport, CJ 17LS2 preamp, DNA-500 amp, and Thiel CS5i spea...

@beetlemania IMO, Thiels are generally very transparent...Some of you may recall my recent posts where I expressed a desire for a more live presence with my Thiel CS5i's. I also thought about beatlemania's post about the transparency of Thiels in... 
Discrete R2R Ladder dac from Soekris, Absolute Sounds review.
Okay...My intent was to listen to a less than $1000 DAC to see if that could make me happy. I found the Soekris DAC 1421 to be an improvement from my Theta ProBasic III as I have shared in earlier posts.However...I had been reading about the Mojo ... 
DAC Choices - $5,000 to $7,000

Has Anyone Ever Run TWO Identical Pairs of Speakers ?
#2 stacked Large Advents!I had one speaker upside down so the tweeters of both speakers were in the middle. 
Tekton versus Klipsch
mapman and charles1dad,Thanks for the comments. Probably makes sense to call Fritz. Based on the extensive number of parts in my Thiel crossovers and their hard load, I expect the series crossover approach makes a lot of sense. 
Tekton versus Klipsch
@mapman I’ve done a lot of research on what speakers I would use were I to tackle a tube amp in the last few years. Have pretty much narrowed it down to Klipsch Heritage or Fritz, not sure which yet for sure. The Fritz monitors have been on my rad... 
Tekton versus Klipsch
LarryiThank you for your response. It was the sort of info I am seeking.I may be in the "hate the Cornwall sound" camp. After hearing the 4's, I noticed the dealer had a used pair of Maggie 1.7i's set up in an open area on one end of a roughly 60 ... 
Tekton versus Klipsch
Thank you. I appreciate your comments and would like to hear more specifics if you want to share.I am also really trying to get a handle on the differences in the "house" sound of the Tektons compared to the other two, which I have heard. I though... 
Higher End DACs
@rower30...Audio is like the stock market, a commodity price has been set with the weaknesses boiled in. If a $2,000 level technology DAC was really as good as a $35K DAC, the answer would not stay a secret for long...Well said, with the caveat t...
