Horn based loudspeakers why the controversy?
Horns sound more like real musicians than conventional speakers, to me at least. 
Help me please!!!
leog2015 I see well that totally changes things but I agree with folkfreak a good dealer with experience with the brands would be the most helpful. I wish you the best of luck and hope you end up with an amp you love! 
Stand alone tweeter?
I can't comment on your tweeter situation but it occurs to me you have some very high end equipment tethered to a good but relatively speaking budget speaker. I am not saying it's the cause of your HF issue but it looks like a bit of a mismatch ov... 
Help me please!!!
So you're going to buy one of those very expensive amps unheard? I would call that a pretty bad move considering their respective price ranges. Asking folks in a forum which amp to buy may make you feel better but its not a panacea, please take th...

You guys know so much more about these drivers than me its a bit humbling to hear you discuss them with such authority. I guess I need to spend more time hanging around Vu's on the weekends! Glad to hear you both liked the CAF speakers better at D...

RE: Suggestions for Tidal Streaming problems caused by Internet Connection Problems
@hgeifman Agreed it is rather vexing and I don't think you will get any response from Tidal other than they are working on the problem. I've corresponded with them repeatedly and that's all they will say. And FWIW no buffering issues the last coup...

Anyone have experience with the Tung Sol 7581a vs. EL34, KT66, KT88, 6L6
@wolf_garcia I can't comment on JJ KT-77s but in my system the Gold Lion KT-77s crushed JJ 6ca7 fat bottles, Psvane Phillips replica EL34's, Svetlana, EH EL34's as well as Tung-Sol reproduction EL34's. I can say they are great tubes and worth tryi...
