The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
I have perfect hearing and enough sense to now ignore this post as others have suggested.   
The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
On 4/30/2019 Kenjit,  you made a post which was similar to what you are posting today.  If you had enough money to afford some of the remarkable speakers which exist in today’s market, you wouldn’t  be posting such unfounded accusations against sp... 
Where can one find the most titles of DSD downloads for purchase?
I am too aware the website DSDguide.com.  Perhaps it is just matter of time.

Yes, thank you.  I’m wondering though if there is a more diverse library available.  One which could include electronic or experimental.  Even contemporary classical composers such as John Adams.  It just seems very limited. 
Speaker recommendation thread (Organised by tiers of price)
$10k. Focal Electra 1038 BE2s. Never should have been discontinued.  Now discounted to close to dealer cost.  Excellent bargain.

Focal Scala Utopia V2’s. $30k ish.  Just wonderful. 
Subjective grading of DAC that I had heard during last one year period.
One would have to wonder how many points (or few) the humble Shiit Yggdrasil would garner?  Would the audible difference be worth the price of a humble house in Upstate NY?

Does anyone play two pairs of speakers at the same time?
Millercarbon, I wish I could could see the humor in your failed attempt to be funny.  Let people who are serious post here, because perhaps they have tried what the OP was suggesting and want to share their experience with others.

I’m glad to see this topic, so this is my story.  I’ve been building my system over the past few years, when I began with Magnepan 1.7i and Odyssey Audio amps/Candela preamp.  I then auditioned Focal Sopra 2 and Electra 1038BE2’s of which I prefer... 
Is this the end of HEA?
My 19 year old son just came in while I was reading this discussion chain.  I summarized the sentiment of this forum and asked him for his opinion. I should begin by saying for the last 4-5 years he has watched (and listened) as my system evolved ... 
Focal Electra BE series
From Focal’s press release 2009.  (Okay it was more than 4 years ago).  “Live from” Utopia 3”Electra 1000 BE 2 adopts the same pure Beryllium 1 1/4 (27 mm)) dome (instead of 1” (25mm)) as Utopia 3, for a real improvement of efficiency and response... 
Focal Electra BE series
Kosst,Actually the beryllium tweeter is not the “oldest and brightest” they make for the current line of Electra 1028 and 1038’s. The 1028 and 1038 be 2 were given the larger, 1 1/16th” (27mm) ‘IAL’ second generation tweeter about 4 years ago.  Th... 
Focal Electra BE series
Agreed.  It is a musically engaging speaker with excellent soundstaging capabilities and fantastic imaging.  Being sold now for a song.  An endangered species in the Focal line.  Going, going, gone.
