If you like the Moody Blues, 5 of their earlier recordings were remastered and released as hybrid SACD's earlier this year. I'm a Moody Blues nut and I found the SACD's to be superior to any version (Vinyl, MoFi Vinyl, MoFi Gold CD's) that I have ...
|Modding NAD system: adding IEC & power cord ?|
Suggest you replace the pre-out/amp in connectors on your amp with after market rca jumpers, if you have not already done so.You could try a regular interconnect cable first, if you're skeptical about the benefits.You will probably get a bigger be...
|Need small speaker for less than $750. Ideas?|
For a small room and considering your criteria, I don't think you will find anything better than the Spendor S3/5.
|How revealing are Grado sr-60s'?|
I don't think the Toshiba is a good match for the Grado's.You shouldn't have to spend $500 on a front end to get decent sound out of them.I get good results with a portable Aiwa (XP-EV501R) cd player that I bought off ebay for $30. I have read tha...
|Opinions on Epos 303?|
I have auditioned the smaller, bookshelf models and was underwhelmed. Maybe I was expecting too much. Maybe it was bad set up by dealer. Suggest you listen before you buy.
|Micromega Microdrive experiences|
I borrowed one for a night to audition at home.It wasn't bad, about the same as the Marantz CD-94 that I had, but not as good as the Parasound CBT2000 that I also had at the time.However, the dealer wanted $600 for it used. I checked and the only ...
|Speaker for NAD C320BEE|
I purchased a used pair of Spendor S3/5's here for $650. My older NAD just died recently and I replaced it with C320BEE. Sounds great together.
|Which headphones are comfortable?|
Everyone's ears and heads are little different so it difficult to say which headphones are most comfortable. If you like the sound of the Grado's but don't like their earpads (I don't) they make a more comfortable pad that is is usually only offer...
|Mix & Match Interconnects|
I have always sought out the best performer for the application.
|A CD recorder for archiving LP's?|
When one of my cassette decks died a month or so ago, I decided to transfer my remaining cassettes to cd. I bought a new RCA cd burner on closeout from EBAY for $115, inc shipping. I figured at this price I had nothing to lose. So far it seems to ...
|Intergrated Amp and CDP for vandersteen 1c|
AMC Tube Integrated and Sony DVP-NS755V DVD player.
|Need a transport solution-Suggestions? PC based?|
Doesn't Bel Canto still recommend an inexpensive DVD player as a transport? I know there are some favorable comments and even a review on Positive Feedback about an NEC cd rom drive as a transport but I would be skeptical about it.
|Which tube amp to buy?|
In your price range you could get a brand new AMC CVT-2100as. It's an 80wpc hybrid design (jfet input/kt88 output) Before getting one of these I had the Quicksilver Silver 90 Mono Amps. The AMC isn't as refined on top as the Quicksilvers, but it h...
|Help, too bright|
1. MP3 is not a high fidelity source and should not be used for critical listening.2. Interconnects that come with your equipment should not be used. For cd player to amp suggest you try MIT, Harmonic Tech or if you're on a budget, Phoenix Gold 81...
|What speakers for Advent 300|
I believe it only puts out 15wpc so you will need a fairly efficient speaker. I would also avoid anything with a metal dome tweeter. If you're planning on using the tuner section make sure it is working before you buy. I used B&W DM100's which...
