Help recommend a good tube preamp
C2700 Is a very feature rich preamp. I have one and after tube roll it's one of the best I've tried for the money.   
New MOFI speaker (Andrew Jones)
All i could think of when watching this video is, Tannoy's been doing this for half a century. let alone others.   why is this so special?   
Looking to buy new to me pre amp 2.5 k max
Another to consider is the Schiit Freya+ they have a black Friday sale right now as well. best of both worlds SS / tube selectable.

Revox Agora B Interesting find in the used market.
  Revox / Studer is Swiss. actually, the drivers are all stamped Studer. totem395; yes, I'm in Victoria BC just north of Seattle. got them from a nice gent named Paul.    lalitk: my office / bedroom area is just an offshoot if my loft that's a... 
Best value Set amp for under $1500 used is ok.
Just to comment on the Willsenton amps being suggested, I had the R8 for a while and i was impressed with the overall build quality and sound. Only thing i didn't like was the remote volume control was too fast to be useful in a hi efficiency syst... 
Cornwall IV or La Scala vs the big boys
I moved from some highly modded Lascala's to Spendor D9.2 ($16,600 canadian) recently. Spendors; more balance overall, slightly more detail level (especially up top) and of course deeper bass and a more delineated and separate sound stage. easier... 
Long digital or balanced cable run?
I think for the lengths you're talking about it make zero difference. but what type of digital cable is the question? optical would make zero difference at these lengths, wire run would have more effect and you'd be limited by the type of cable an... 
Powered speakers show audiophiles are confused
How do you think vibration effects the sound?  To me this is mute, the only way i know of that an electronic component will be affected by vibrations is if there is a magnetic field in the area strong enough to induce current in the system due to ... 
What Gear Has Disappointed You?
Aurender A10 lack luster sound for excessive money. its built well but has a boring presentation. Roon Nucleus other than room software itself what a disappointing sound from a well review streamer, not surprising when you open one up and see an ... 
Packing & Shipping Large/Heavy Speakers
I shipped some 250lb each speaker (Von Schweiker VSR) a month ago, after a lot of looking the best option i found was a moving company trucking section. i used Day and Ross (not sure if they are in the USA) it was 1/2 the cost of all the usual cur... 
Speaker upgrade
If you have the room i'd take the Cornwall over the Forte it's just a better integrated driver set and superior mid-range horn IMO also the bass is cleaner from my listening. L100 wasn't something i liked personally it was ok but lacked the dynami... 
Upgrading tube for a MAC 275 mk5 what are you using?
DeKay, Interesting about the Ken-rads I also have a set of triode labs 2A3 mono blocks I really like a set of NOS RCA grey plates I found. They are one of my fav NOS tubes right now for 2a3, supposedly the black plates are even better but I've no... 
Isolation Feet for Garrard 301 wood plinth
late coming back but, in the end a set of three Iso Acoustic feet sized to my overall table weight were ultimately the best overall sound.   
Run with 240volt here in Thailand or use Step down transformer?
if your using digital and-or a turntable you may want to see if its compatible with the 50hz supply, most amps and preamp are fine with either. other than that, do not plug a 115-volt component into a 220v supply without a step-down transformer u...
