Are the new Ohm Walsh speakers Audiophile quality?
If I recall, and it has been awhile, probably around 2008 or so, my newly purchased 2000/3000 upgrade drivers for older cabinets used Dayton Reference drivers(or were spitting images of them) that were aluminum coated, not all aluminum like typica... 
OHM 3XO Factory Rebuild
@johndel1960 Glad that you are enjoying your rebuilt 3XO's! They are fun speakers to listen to. I owned a pair back around 2007 or so, refinished the cabinets and then had the 3000 driver upgrade. I kept the original drivers and redid the foam sur... 
Where did you buy your first audio gear?
JC Penney's technically....1979, I had ordered an MCS receiver, cassette deck, turntable and speakers by mail order. System came in, receiver was broken. Took it back/return. Found out that Playback-The Electronic Playground in Danville, Illinois,... 
Phillips Design Oh! Oh-16 speaker?
I was reading about them on their site just last week. I like most omni/semi-omni designs in general, and was curious about these as well. Always nice to hear about new companies and their designs. I cannot say I totally appreciate their cosmetics... 
Bragging rights.....
@mapman, very interesting, Map! I have somewhat struggled a bit with doing this very thing as a wholesale change. I pretty well completed my "retirement" system a few years ago, and while I am not quite yet retired, the system is, and has, given m... 
Upsizing Capacitors
Upsizing capacitance doesn’t always bring about improvements, and can create other problems if taking things too far. When replacing aging caps, especially main power supply caps, uprated voltage is fine, and sometimes, the temperature ratings, as... 
For those of you who had spent over hundred thousand dollars for your sound system.
@ghdprentice  Yep, I do have the pickup truck, and for sure, I have done my fair share of helping with those moves! Hah!  On the boat side of things, a friend with a boat is a good one. I always wanted a boat, yet it was the one thing I could ne... 
Anyone else feel like it’s the Wild Wild West?
In it all over the years, I have just learned to trust my own ears and go with that. Too much mileage that varies between each persons thoughts and feelings on any one topic, let alone the gazillions that we read about on all the forums these days... 
For those of you who had spent over hundred thousand dollars for your sound system.
My system cost a fraction of the 100K, I do know at least I get to use it a hell of a lot more than my buddy who owns a several hundred thousand dollar boat, and one who makes fun of my "hobby" quite often. While I cannot judge if I actually get m... 
Corpse Cable - Opinions Please
They even come packaged in little coffins.   
ARC LS7 preamp channels drop out intermittently
Excellent! Thanks also for the follow up for us all as well! Enjoy the tunes!   
Point of diminishing returns for a Network Streamers?
@gerrie I too like the Lindemann products. I recently bought a Limetree Bridge 2, and it has worked flawlessly since day one, and sounds very good running into my LinnenberG Telemann DAC-Pre.  The nice thing too, looking ahead at where my system ... 
Tron Atlantic dac disrupts both Audiophile and The Audiophile’s Wife.
@charles1dad Give Graham Tricker of Tron an email, he is certainly a very approachable guy, I am sure he would answer your questions barring maybe some things he might not want to disclose due to design etc.    I think Tron products are certainl... 
AKM makes the best DACs
I love fish and chips, does that count for anything? 😊  
which turntable for the future?
Bergmann, or maybe a Holbo Mk2, I have the original Holbo, and it is fantastic. Plays well above its price point, but of course doesn’t play into the snob appeal, so probably gets overlooked in the grand scheme of things.
