Al, W4S never got back to me with more than their original response being: “The DAC has hot outputs that may be too much for your integrated. I would suggest a level of 55 and if that is still too much then go RCA at that level.”So I'm guessing i...

OK, thanks Al. I will ask. I have noticed W4S isn't so great with responding but I will try.Would anybody else on this forum possibly know the answer to your questions?

Hi all. This was the manufactures response to your suggestion Al: “The DAC has hot outputs that may be too much for your integrated. I would suggest a level of 55 and if that is still too much then go RCA at that level.” I tried RCA and what I...

I am heading to a dealer for Dynaudio (among others) just outside of Seattle on December 21st. I will definitely check them out. What are your thoughts on running them with tubes?Thanks 
Dazed & Confused
Eloquently spoke ieales, my apologies for the "jewelry" slang, wrong choice of words.I would love to get into tubes, I always feared the maintenance aspect. Most of my life has been work, eat and sleep (with little of the later). Just wanted the r...

Point well taken on the recording gents. Anything you can recommend that is that's as an "Religious Experience" (luv it)/ busy that would be good to put a system to the test? Love Emerson, Lake & Palmer as well, but I think all their recording...

Boy, you are all great! Getting a little technical in some aspects ("never been a fan of amplifiers with so many output devices per channel"), but love all great the feedback. Been reading AF for years with never really participating, glad now tha...

Will do Al.And yes  f917025 I have done much research on the Ohms and would love to hear them, but they are on the other side of the planet, so difficult to do so at the moment.

Thank you Al, you have really dug deep into this. Thank you to everyone else as well. I don't have time today, but tomorrow I will play with the DAC volume as suggested. You have also sparked some other trouble shooting ideas for me. Some that wil...

Again thanks to all for your answers to my query.I will check or the Sonus Faber Sonetto 8's thanks mijostyn Interesting observation steakster (like mine medium rare) I'm hopping the "Room" is short term, but I think it's time to change to conven...

All great input, much thanks you all. I purchased electrostatics without doing enough research and was pushed hard by a sales person at the time. With the same music (played on a tube amp), the ML's sounded better (with the same song, can't rememb...

Quick update. Move the Spires to 7' on center. Played YES, Close to the Edge first track and when the vocals come in at the 4 minute mark, ouch. Then when the organs starts up at 13.03 I gotta turn it off (or at lease way down). Just shrills. On t...

Thanks mijostyn, The SL 545's look great, but even if I sold my speakers they are way over my budget.And both the SL's and the Maggies are a little "Majestic" as suggested. ~P

These ML's were originally purchase for another home and sounded just fine. That home was remodeled around the speakers. That remodel was all about hard surfaces, which unlike most speakers the ML's are very adaptable too and sounded very good (ye...
