|Are you in the over 30 K club??|
As they say here in Texas, you don't ask someone how many head of cattle he has. You don't ask him how many acres are in his ranch and you sure don't ask hiim how much his stereo costs.
|Bi-amping ADS L-1590 or L-1290|
I have a spare pair of 1290s. I have bi-wired and bi-amped them without an external crossover. I used the internal bi-amp switch and I thought they sounded great. Maybe they could sound better with an external crossover but I never felt the need t...
|It was a good day at the thrift shop|
I bought a nice pair of Klipsch Cornwalls for $130 at a local pawnhop and the salesman paid the tax.
|Musical Design 140i Preamp suggestions?|
There is a Conrad Johnson PV-11 with phono here for $750. I have both the CJ and the Musical Design SP-2B. They both are great preamps for the money. The CJ has a phono and the Musical Design does not. If you purchase either unit make sure you ret...
|Anyone know about ADS M15 Loudspeakers|
I have an older pair of the L1290s, which are a little smaller and older than the M15s. I think that they are a great set of speakers for the money. I have since upgraded to another set of speakers, but I will never part with these ADS speakers. I...
|Looking For Single Source Tube Preamp|
The Musical Design SP-2B is single tube design preamp. Very nice, very reasonable, and fully upgradable. There are two on Audiogon right now. Jim
|Attention to anyone on Texas Gulf Coast|
Even if no one believes in Global Warming, pretend you do and make the politicians adopt stricter emissions and cleaner air laws. I have scientific evidence that clean air actually allows even inexpensive stereo equipment sound like "price is no o...
|Soliloquy 6.2 Very Poor Treble .....|
I have a pair of 6.5s. I too thought that they were not lively enough in the treble. I was at the time, able to get a hold of David and he suggested more playing time and Analysis Plus cables. He was right. They now sound wonderful. I could not be...
|Are parts still available for vintage Klipsch?|
Thanks for the ideas. I will definitely replace the back panel with MDF and rewire the wiring harness and the binding posts. If anyone has any other suggestions or mods please let me know. Thanks again, Jim
|Does anyone do good protest music anymore?|
Springsteen. He writes protest songs all the time. "Born in the USA" was a protest song about Vietnam , but everybody thought that it was a patriotic song. Reagan even used it as a campaign song until Springsteen made him stop using it. "41 Shots"...

|KEF 104/2, 105/3, or 107/2?|
Don, Just a word of advice. I have a pair of 104/2s and I loved their sound. However, I have a bad midrange and KEF no longer makes replacement midrange drivers for them. I have bought several tweeters without a problem but the midrange is another...
|Any sonic benefits of bi-wiring speakers ?|
Simon, First of all, I have been very happy with a biwired set up. I was running my speakers with a biwired set of Analysis Plus Oval 12 cables. I liked them alot better than the previous cable I was using. After a while, I experimented with a sil...
