Ohm Acoustics Walsh F-5015 speakers
Sorry for your loss in the fire, that was all quite a sad time for many. I hope that things are well with you moving along from it! Better times for you! As to the F-5015’s, if you have questions or thoughts on setup etc., give John a call, I am s... 
In the middle of a pandemic, Stereophile reviews ~ $30K equipment
poko-well put, agree on your post!  
Are integrated amps technically better than separates?
@cleeds, Naim Audio’s NAP-300 is built in two chassis, power supply separate from main unit. Also Musical Fidelity has done them, probably many more over the years. So not a new or novel approach. Is it “better”, don’t know, but I suppose it meets... 
Wich is better
I agree on that one theophile, tough choice!  
Child Damage Mitigation
It really is amazing what a child can learn from parents when gentle teaching is given.  
Is anyone thinking about building Walsh drivers?
Glad all is well Jerry! I have had to be at work-which I am thankful for, but wow, what a mental drain. One day at a time! Interesting on what your European friend is working on there, really nice looking cones created there! Nothing like creativi...

Ummm, large woman modeling bras.... 
Naim uniti nova to another amplifier
Sure, the Nova has two sets of analog pre-outs, one using DIN and the other, RCA connectors. The Nova then can be used as source and preamplifier.The Nova in and of itself, has a pretty good amplifier section, so I guess it really depends on what ... 
Best Value Line Stage Tube Preamps?
Used Croft Acoustics preamps typically go pretty cheaply, good value, great sound. I find them very good, and even like their rather spartan, utility looks. By the way, new, Gene Rubin is your man now for all Croft, and I believe he can order abou... 
Square living room--12x12
Ohm Walsh 2’s are made to be placed around a foot or so off the wall, out in open space, they can sound okay, but certainly not the best or as intended. Probably the best thing you can do is simply experiment, see what works and sounds best for yo... 
... Anyone familiar with the Neat Iota Alpha floorstander...
I would second bar’s comments above. Great little speaker. Sounds/plays much bigger than its tiny proportions. I also owned the Larsen 4 that was also mentioned above for over five years. Another great speaker worth a listen, might sound odd at fi... 
Ohm MicroWalsh Short speakers
I would venture to say, for the same foot print as a short on stands, and for the similar money, the Micro Walsh Tall would be an all around better choice. Obviously I don’t know your total requirements, or even maybe it is a visual thing, just my... 
What is the most FUN pair of speakers you've ever had and why?
I would pretty much have to say that I have had enormous fun from just about every single pair of speakers that I have had, regardless of price or make. It should be fun! If one isn't getting some fun out of it, time to pack it up and be done. I t... 
Cable choices for Cairn, Naim & Vandersteen
Maybe check out Mogami right here on the Gon. Very reasonable and will work quite well with what you have. 
Is anyone thinking about building Walsh drivers?
Jerry, maybe you should try a couple sets of Madonna’s cone bras, never know, they might just work quite incredibly as Omni cones! Trust all is well with you down south!
