Horn Speaker Recommendations
Being a UK-based Wigwam scribe, have you by any chance listened to Simon Mears Audio Uccello's? Yes, they were at one of our annual enthusiasts' shows. I thought they were very good. Not as lively as the La Scalas and may be more suited to classic...

If anyone is interested I have just finished reviewing the Klipsch La Scala AL5s (the new ones) at: https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/134937-klipsch-la-scala-al5/A UK view.

GaN-based Class D power amps
Thanks for that link, missed it. I assume this is a discrete component amplifier as opposed to the nCore Veritas but I have not seen any internals of the 116s.  
GaN-based Class D power amps
But they would say that they make them. In a similar vein, I have seperately talked to two Class D amp designers. Both said what is important with Class D is the design and layout of the amplifiers. The design requires a good knowledge of Class D,... 
Single-ended vs. Balanced input for Pass Labs XA30.8 (input will be a Golden Gate DAC)
I have just got the XP22 and I am hoping to get one of the first reviews from Europe out soon. I  think it is now fully warmed up and burnt in. Literally, as the UK has had a lot of snow in the last few days and the preamp was stone cold when it a...

I have a Pass Labs XA30.8 and see they recommend balanced cables.  I am using RCA interconnects as I have high-quality silver RCA cables and they sound superb. I use the Pass labs XP12 (and have a loan XP22 here) and I can I use balanced cables fr...

Have Passive Preamps Finally Come of Age?
Hi tweak1 I am not sure if you referred to my review of the Nord Class D and Hattor preamp. I found the Hattor and Nord worked exceptionally well together. The Hattor can have a buffer amp added and even though mine has one I do not use it. I pref... 
Power Cord for Pass Int 60-Under 1K used
Nelson either says save your money or buy Frank Dickens......I use the Belden mains with good connectors and it really works on my 30.8. You need to get into 4 figures to truly beat it.  
Rolling KT150s in Primaluna hp integrated
Guys, FYI, Christiaan Punter did a review of fitting KT150s to a PrimaLuna and then compared it to other amplifiers including the ARC Ref 75SE.  Interesting outcome.http://www.hifi-advice.com/blog/review/analog-reviews/amplifier-reviews/primaluna-...
