|Better Amps For Talon Khorus CAT JL2 or Tenor 75?|
One of my friends has the Khorus Xs---has had Cary V12i monos, Pass X350, Edge NL10 (or 12-can't remember), and now the Tenors. He said the Tenors are so far ahead of the others, he has lost any reasone to go amp shopping again.
|THE Eternal dissatisfied|
Cary amps mate well with JM Labs. I heard the Minis with V12i and SLP98 pre, and it sounded very nice.KeithR
|Best Pre/Pro for 2-channel stereo sound?|
Not so sure why everyone thinks Bryston when they want 2 ch sound out of a pre/pro. No one buys there preamps. They may be better than some alternatives, but i would think a quality 2 ch preamp will give you much better sound.
|Jeff Rowland Concentra II vs Gryphon Callisto 2200|
I will be different here--I owned a Concentra II for awhile, and it wasn't my cup of tea. I didn't think it was all that powerful (had to crank past 80 all the time), and that it wasn't close to tubes like everyone says (i A/Bd it to my Cary 2002/...
|Best Amp For Dynaudio Contour 3.3 Speakers|
I wouldn't pair the Dyns with the Sim, per a good dealer friend of mine.I would look into Plinius, Spectron, and Krell.The CJ may be too soft for these speakers--
|Experience with Cary SLP 2002 preamp?|
I am the guy who regretted the 2002 in my system. I just thought the 98 was a more musical piece, and ended up buying a new one in the carnival red laquer (much easier to keep clean than the chrome) with remote (which is standard now). Also, the l...
|Anyone familiar w/Cary SLP-98 preamp?|
The SLP 98 is a gem of a preamp. I sold it to get a 2002, then quickly went back to a 98. I compared it to VTL 5.5, VAC Standard Sig, Rogue 99, CJ PV-14, and the Cary was by far the most musical.They come off and on audiogon quickly, as they are s...
|Integrated confusion? Levinson 383 or JRConcentra|
I had a Concentra II, and it wasn't my cup of tea. I have auditioned the Levinson, and it always was cold and sterile to me. Not bothersome, but not exciting. If it were me, I would audition the new BAT (i am trying to do this as well).
|What amps are being used with Revel Studios?|
I've heard them on Rowland a lot (Synergy/10)
|Dynaudio Contour 1.3SE brightness?|
Interesting as I have owned Wilsons and others, and the SEs are one of the few that integrate the drivers superbly. I also like the 3.0, but my room doesn't need that big of a speaker.Dyns jam or boogie so to speak...i was surprised how many speak...
|Talon Khorus x or B&W 802|
To the dealers on this thread: How good are the new Ravens? They seem to be a lot of speaker at their pricing point, which is thousands less than Sophias or Studios.Thanks, and I enjoy your responses...going to hear Khorus Xs tomorrow in Anaheim, ...
|BAT VK50SE or CJ Premier 16LS Series ll|
I would save a bunch of dough and buy 2 Cary Rocket 88s and the Cary 2002 preamp and vertically biamp. You can even try it with one, or get a single V12. Once you go tubes, you will forget Rotel and JDRG (which I have owned both btw).Dennis Had ha...
|RR Copland CD speaker killer?|
I have this cd as well, and auditioned it on 10 different systems, full-range Watt/Pupps etc. It is in the cd...it bothered me for awhile as I thought a tube was to fault in my preamp...not so.
|PreAmp for Revel Studio with Rowland 10?|
Why not get a Synergy ii if you want ss? If you want tube, check out Hovland, etc.
|Best Amp for under 10K?|
I would check out the new CAT JL2...supposedly phenomenal. After discount, you should be at 10k.Other cheaper options:BAT VK75SECary V12 MK2You can't go wrong with all 3.I think the VTLs are ok, but they have so many tubes to replace....
