|CES05: AlexisPark 1562: comments|
Crytical, make sure you have enough power on your amp(s) for the Elacs to come alive. I heard Fab Audio with an 8-watt amp and the speakers were rocking.
|Which Patricia Barber album floats yer boat?|
Yawn... There are more interesting artists deserving a listen than Patricia Barber.
|My CES/T.H.E. Show impressions|
Although the attendance is down this year (exhibitors, dealers and industry affiliates alike), there's still much to cover in 4 days, especially if one took time to pay attention to details in each room. I will post more information as I have a ch...
|Subwoofer for Magnepan 1.6's|
Martin Logans also mate well with planars. Their subwoofers are also compact in size and can produce tight bass.
|Speakers for Pathos|
I've heard Triangle speakers mated with the Pathos Classic One before. The sound they make together is quite musical and sensuous.
|Favorite Movie Soundtrack|
-The Mission-The English Patient-Tous Les Matins Du Monde
|Center Channel Upgrade: Pls.recommend MTM w.Ribbon|
The VMPS LRC is on my short list because it uses the Bohlender Graebner Neo PDR5000 which would be a great match to my BG Z Series multi-channel tower system. The only problem is my shelf clearance is only 9.5". I believe the LRC is 11" in width. ...

I was there and it was truly marvelous. He makes it sound easy even though it's quite tricky to conduct due to the many sudden tempo changes within one same movement. I have to admit that the release of the SACD may not use much from the Thursday ...
|Anyone Heard the McCormack UDP-1?|
There's a review by kr4 in Stereophile.
|Reference quality SACD/DVD-A recommendations?|
Will do. However, please be patient. The list will take time, especially if you want comparision with redbook counterparts.
|Smetana Ma Vlast|
This is why collecting classical music is interesting. You can't just have one version. The Gramophone magazine is the only one I know of that has a special section dedicated to a major work each month. In this section, you will read an in-depth a...
|Smetana Ma Vlast|
On CD, both versions with Rafael Kubelik are quite special. I think the one on Supraphon slightly edges over the one on Orfeo as regards spontaneity because this is a live performance, Rafael's first return to his homeland after a long period of e...
|KT100 is better than KT88?|
This is very helpful. Thank you.
|CD pcm to ................SACD dsd "Wish List"|
Solti's Ring Cycle on Decca (but must transferred/remastered correctly...none of that 16/44,1Khz multi-channel non-sense), Tristan und Isolde with Karl Bohm on DG, Berlioz' Nuits d'Ete with Regine Crespin on Decca, (1) of Bellini's Norma with Mari...
|Any feedback on how good the Marantz SA-11 is?|
Did you do a search? If not, please do so. It's been debated to the hilt.
