Ohm Walsh Micro Talls: who's actually heard 'em?
That review brings my back over a decade to early 2005 when i first broke in a pair of microtalls. Still using the same set of speakers. Always considered upgrading to larger models but haven’t had the space or the desire to box and send them from... 
Tidal vs. Deezer Elite for Sonos
I can not comment Deezer vs Tidal sound quality but Deezer's music catalog crushes Tidal. It is the reason I ended my TIdal subThere are rumors Spotify will have lossless soon.  That will crush Tidal if priced the same or lower.  http://www.androi... 
Who has tried "TIDAL" vs other streaming applications?
ricred1, you are not alone if buffering is an issue. I have the best router Time Warner has available, 200 down in addition to a powerful computer. No issues with other music or movie streaming websites. If packets was an issue it would be with ot... 
Anyone love TIDAL lossless streaming like I do?
Giving Tidal hifi a second try about a year later. It's still just ok.It's catalog still seems incomplete.I get about 70% when importing playlists.  The front page is filled with beyonce and rap. Not my taste.Overall the UI needs serious improveme... 
Ohm Walsh Micro Talls: who's actually heard 'em?
Not much to add to this thread other than these are truly non fatiguing speakers. Just got done with another multi-hour streaming listening set. Source: 10 year owner of microtalls currently paired with a modest peachtree amp. 
Spotify Premium vs Tidal ... opinions?
Doing a free trial right now of tidal. The difference in sound is dramatic between spotify and Tidal. 20 bucks a month is way to high so I will not continue after the trial. Eventually more sights will stream higher bit rate at lower costs and I w... 
DTS vs Dolby Digital?
My HK receiver forces DD unless I switch to an analog connection. I called their tech support and that is because it is supposedly defaults to the best sound when in a digital connection mode. 
Ohm Speakers, thoughts?
Interesting review on updating Ohm 4'shttp://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/ohm/ohm.html 
Green Mountain Europas vs Dali Royal Towers
I have never heard the GMA's but I have heard the Dali's. At the time, they were outside my price range and I could not afford them but if I could have, I would have bought them. The detail was great, and they had excellent imaging. Definitely not... 
Receiver for pre/pro?
The reason I asked was that I have a 50 watts into multi channel H/K 230 and would like to boost at least the front three channels to about 80-125 watts. Maybe a used B&K. But if the H/K's warm sound wouldnt dramaticly change, something like t... 
Can anyone recommend center ch. for Shahinians?
The Ohm center is worth a try with the long in home trial period. I bet you can get a pretty close veneer match with your Shahinians. Can John at Ohm and he would work with you. Maybe you could emial him a picture of them. They actually sent me ve... 
Receiver for pre/pro?
One more question on this subject. If you take a rather warm sounding receiver like NAD or H/K and match it with a brighter amp like a Adcom or maybe Acurus-Aragon, will amp's sound take over and you lose the warmth? 
Can anyone recommend center ch. for Shahinians?
Ohm Acoustics does make a center channel speaker. I have it, and it sounds wonderful. It might be a nice fit. However, visually it is all oddly proportioned angles, a little too tall and to me not aesthetically pleasing. I have mine draped in spea... 
OHm micro walsh series...
Last spring, I ended up getting a pair of micro talls, the matching center channel, and Ohm satellites for my home theater system. The wide soundstage and 3D sound of the talls are great for movies and the center channel is superb. I listen to mus... 
DLP vs Plasma/LCD
I am begining to think power conditioning makes a bigger difference with video than with audio. Heck you can use one of those Monster PC/surge protects with an entry level tube TV and get great color and clarity improvements.
