Carver Crimson 275 tube amp
I’ve owned a 275 for almost a year now - This amp overall sounds excellent driving my ML 11A’s as compared to several other amps I’ve tried including both tube & solid state... The ML’s are of fairly high efficiency due to 250Hz and below bein... 
Quad 2912 vs Martin Logan ESL 11a
Been devoted to the sound of planar speaker designs beginning in the 70's, and have lived with various models from Magnepan, Acoustat and Martin Logan over the past 40 years. I've owned the 11A for two years at this point, and have been quite happ... 
Tekton Double Impacts
Wondered how on earth the DI SE could have jumped to $6500/pr over the standard DI’s $3000/pr after just switching to a couple of different driver types and new crossover components (except for the proposed notion that this newer model could be so... 
Ohm Walsh Micro Talls: who's actually heard 'em?
Jrhodus emailed me photos of his new 3000's today - Very nice looking in the Sapele veneer - Thanks, James! 
Ohm Walsh Micro Talls: who's actually heard 'em?
Jrhodus, I just ordered a new pair of 3000 Talls, and the Sapele veneer is high on my list (still awaiting a few veneer samples to arrive in the mail)... Would you be willing to post a photo of your 3000s? This would be of great help - Thanks - Gary 
Review: Emotiva XDA-1 DA converter
According to a technical consultant at Emotiva, who I'd chatted with prior to my own purchase of the XDA-1, this unit was designed to run at its full 2v output (or "80" on the volume display) for absolute best sound quality. Apparently a setting d... 
DIY Anti-IC project
"Gary -These might be magical.Have to switch back to the Opera Billie ICs to confirm (though I have a good ear, my aural "memory" is short-lived), but this is my thought from within about the first 30 minutes of listening tonight.I'd been listenin... 
DIY Anti-IC project
Lewinskih01, those are some really wild lookin' cables! And you've just jogged my memory that about 20 years ago I made speaker cables from old 1/2"-thick 50-wire round SCSI cable - The separately-insulated wires were silver-coated copper, and I s... 
DIY Anti-IC project
Don't have any idea where this same wire can be sourced today; I obtained my spool of the stuff back in '78, the year it was manufactured. There's a mystique surrounding the very pure copper that was made by Bel Tel all those years ago, and the ve... 
DIY Anti-IC project
Update: My home-brew "Anti-IC Plus" interconnects are out; the new "Avatar Blu" interconnects are in. In fact, these cables also replaced my Speltz-made standard-issue Anti-ICs (which are for sale if anyone's interested).The Avatar interconnects a... 
Own Magnepans? Got Cats?
I may have gone to the trouble for naught - These totally non-destructive cats have turned out to be neither climbers or scratchers - They're kinda like puppy dogs that follow us from one room to the next so they can sit and watch. They do seem to... 
Mini-Review of the Beresford TC-7520 DAC
I've found the LM4562NA offers a very nice improvement over the stock 5532 - This DAC is now being used in my "System #2" as seen in the virtual system posts.
