I just had a Moment
Thank you.  The vocal harmonies, wonderful.  I love finding the perfect music for whatever you have.  In the case of Linn's, they do mid-range voice better than just about any.  What you were listening to was angelic.  Some of what I have similarl... 
Listening position/speaker position
Doing it all wrong.  I have found it best to start with a few glencairn and a bottle of nice scotch or bourbon, your pick.  Have a friend over and do major moves before breaking the neck of the bottle.  From there, you can toe in, toe out and move... 
Trying to get Dec’d Out
You did say "any input".  As to those speakers specifically no, have not used or listened to.  As to transmission line speakers, yes.  What you are looking at is a higher grade than what I did.  I wanted a all in system for under $300, that I coul... 
TheBeat Tour
Wow, I can't believe no one has commented on this one.  I saw King Crimson 3 times in concert.  The first 2 times were without a doubt the best concert experiences of my life.  The last one, on their farewell tour was good, but missing.  The wall ... 
And Awaaay We Go!
That was fun.  Interesting comparison might be:  One Man's Dream - Ken Fritz Documentary about the world's best stereo system; on YouTube.  Some would say, why would you spend so much on a hi-fi?  I would ask, why do people spend what they spend o... 
Replacement Tubes
Yes, there is supposedly a world wide tube shortage.  Prices are up a wee bit.  Russia has made lots of tubes for years.  They are having import/export problems to most other countries, just about everywhere these days.  I have bought from The Tub... 
List some of your favorite live Jazz recordings
I look forward to exploring the listings above.  For me currently: Clyde McCoy And His Orchestra:  Sugar Blues Charles Mingus:  Pithecanthropus Erectus Dave Brubeck:  How High The Moon from Young Lions Old Tigers, the vocals by Jon Hendricks a... 
Low Powered Tube Amp Distorting High Efficiency Speakers?
I have a good old fashion Dynaco ST-70 that starts sounding distorted right before the tubes go.  Might try a whole new bank of tubes.   
Selling gear made to be a set
I have sold or given away items in the past and it has come back to haunt me.  I miss the uniqueness of the sound.  You are going 100% digital, its fast and very precise.  I love that sound.  I also have tubes and lots of analog and love that soun... 
I'm thinking about a low watt tube amplifier?
I believe for a 87 db efficiency you gonna want some more power.  Those just aren't going to wake up until you get some wattage running through them.  I do agree, more watts, is not better necessarily.  I run Decware, 6 watts/channel through Alte... 
Tuning a cabinet to extend response beyond & below resonance of the driver
https://www.firstwatt.com/pdf/art_elpipeo.pdf  Some good reading on Nelson Pass El-Pipe-O.  
4 8 or 16 ohms.
I believe it is 4 ohm.    The 4 ohm input impedance characteristic was chosen for two principal reasons. First, the B&W engineers felt that most good amplifiers (with which this system will, no doubt, be used) would deliver their maximum pow... 
George Winston has passed away
I saw him twice in concert.  He was a pure classical folk artist with an incredible attack.  I now know what I will be listening to tonight.   
High end speakers at low volume
These are fresh out of the gates.  Decware makes wonderful music.  https://www.decwareproducts.com/dfh?utm_campaign=3ad2e5d7-342d-4f32-bb22-733502a88530&utm_source=so&utm_medium=mail&cid=d0a10005-1afc-47bb-af77-0ca0edfd69ec  
cheapest speaker made in the last 10 year that can beat any speaker made before 1970?
@realworldaudio and @mahgister well said and many dittos of agreement.  When someone can throw a $2 x 2" speaker on a table and make it sound like some of the great old stuff, they will have something.  For now, I will be happy with my big speaker...
