Kinergetics Chiro C-500
Can you give me an email address so we can talk. Mine continues to destroy capacitors. Some were replaced but I prior to my possession so I want to verify the capacitor values. 
whats my preamp worth?
Audiogon really would prefer that you pay for a "bluebook" subscription to find that out rather than ask. You can always check completed auction listing on a well know auction site that starts with "E".As with all things it is worth what someone w...

Meridian / Wadia / Audio Aero describe sound
Smooth as in no digital edge. Solid well articulated bass. More relaxed than in your face - Sounds like music rather than a collection of notes. 
Meridian / Wadia / Audio Aero describe sound
I will also praise the 508.24 which is still in my main system. The price/performance is hard to beat. The sound is "smooth at budda". Natural well rounded, detailed but not etched with a very relaxed delivery. I have owned CAL, Audiomeca, and Mus...

Steve Jobs we will miss you
I am just wondering about the "angles" in heaven Tom6897 mentions - Jobs could be obtuse but he did always seem to have an angle. 
Why aren't the older members still active ?
I do not blame the economy as some have done but redundancy as the killer of posting for long time posters and lurkers. So many posts as have been pointed out are not worth a response because they have been beaten to death. Is it PRAT - posting re... 
The Audiophile's Wife
Well written,humorous,and all to true. A pleasure to be harpooned by her incisive wit. The spousal unit was sincerely amused. 
If your whole system costs $40,000....
Impromptu - given at a moments notice without significant thought like naming all the costs of your components with referring to any documentsGiving you a break - not being pilloried for inane, assinine or pointless meandering in your comments or ... 
What does it take to qualify as a reviewer?
