Zu Omen or Tekton Lore
Sebrof, thanks for heads up. I also read a review about pendragons vs omen defs that seemed to answer my concerns. In that thread a reviewer stated that for him the omen defs sounded too different from "normal" speakers and it was as if you were s... 
Zu Omen or Tekton Lore
I have heard the Lore-S and I liked them a lot but thought they might be a little too smooth for rock. I have had it suggested to me that I might prefer the std lore. However, the subject is Omen vs Lore which leads me to believe that they sound s... 
Zu Omen Defs vs Tekton Pendragons
Holley great review. Were you able to listen to the Zu with the new nano drivers or the tekton with the mundorf caps?? 
devore super 8 vs 88
Sorry to bump this but is no one able to compare the Devore Super 8s with the newer Gibbon 88s? Thanks. 
Speakers to pair with a Red Wine Audio Sig 15
I too found the Sig 15 a little less than dynamic with the stock tube but switching out the tube made a really big difference and now I feel that I have the tone and dynamics. I do agree, however, that I may have painted myself into a corner when ... 
Speakers to pair with a Red Wine Audio Sig 15
Bigshutterbug can you tell me what speakers you tried the sig 15 with? 
Speakers to pair with a Red Wine Audio Sig 15
Sorry, guess it doesn't let you change the subject header.I thought "High Efficiency Rock Speakers" would be a better title. 
Speakers to pair with a Red Wine Audio Sig 15
Perhaps the above is a better title. Although I should mention that I am not that interested in concert level SPLs. Only that the music sound good. 
Upgrade rainmakers to hawks,clues,tekton or fritz?
Eslaudio,I have narrowed down my choices to naim XS and hawks or Red wine audio signature 15 and tekton lore-s. I have been getting great advice from Plato but I thought I would ask you again as you have had both in your system. I went to RWA and ... 
Upgrade rainmakers to hawks,clues,tekton or fritz?
Milpai - I actually have tried them out with better amplification. I took them to my friends house who has the Hawks and we both agreed that the Hawks were in every way superior. Not saying that the Rainmakers are bad, because they are not, just t... 
Mac Mini 2011 with Lion or 2010 with Snow Leopard
so it turns out some of the dacs i am interested in are interger capable. however, i think that i read that some people were experiencing better or as good sound from 2011 macs despite the fact that the 2011 macs are not integer capable. Ghasley h... 
Mac Mini 2011 with Lion or 2010 with Snow Leopard
I also am wondering how important is it that the usb ports are shared in the new model. From other forums it seemed as if people thought this was an issue. However, it seems like people are reporting that itunes sounds good in 2011, so maybe its n... 
Mac Mini 2011 with Lion or 2010 with Snow Leopard
Thanks Ghasley I can get the 2010 refurbished for $469 and the 2011 refurbished for $519. Right now I am just using the DAC in my NAD T747, until I can afford a stand alone DAC. Just wondering which would make the most sense to purchase. 
Totem and Bel Canto?
Headshrinker2 I like the NAD sound its just that I feel that there might be more to the rainmakers. A friend of mine has the hawks powered by arcam avr400 and a vdac. Just heard it yesterday and the soundstage and attack? are amazing. Perhaps its ... 
Totem and Bel Canto?
thanks for all of the responses. I am,however, a little confused by meiwans comment that the rainmakers are easy to drive as everything i have ever read suggests that they are very difficult to drive and like a lot of power(this was confirmed by a...
