Is it even possible to set up a system in 12x12 room?
Don't take this the wrong way, but this is a silly question. Of course you can set up a system in a 12 x 12 room. I have had a great sounding system in a 9 x 11 room that in some ways is better than the same system in my current 11 x 13 room with ... 
Bryston or Aragon
Focusing on specs is like only looking at a person's resume. You could easily miss hiring the wrong person. That's my wisdom of the week ...

It's apples and oranges. With those components, he will enjoy either one as long as the amp doesn't have issues in the near future. Most people just getting into audio have a low threshold for fixing gear.If you have the money, for fun and a learn...

Broken hearted...magnepan and vandersteen
I love mcreyn's comment .... I don't claim to be an expert on why a speaker is or isn't great, but you can't argue with success, that includes respect from the industry itself, not only music critics, which we all know, are like opinions ... you k... 
Calling all Vandersteen Fans
I have spent most of my audio journey with vintage gear. The best speakers I have owned are Vandersteen 2C and now 3A. For my small room, I would easily trade my 3A's for some 2Ce Sig II's. They would be perfect.If you are enjoying the Advents mor... 
Your favourite Rush albums?
Moving PicturesThis is the perfect storm album. As in they had perfected all aspects of their craft, including managing how they produced LP's. It's also the album I have listened to most, and as one fellow posted, it's a great demo LP for your sy... 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Ian Hunter "You're Never Alone With A Schizophrenic" (CHR 1219) ... this is a dirty copy I picked up at my local record store, Recycle Music, for $4.99 ... yeah, I need to clean it, but man, the mastering and pressing is quality. 
A very good ENGINEERING explanation of why analog can not be as good as digital..
By your logic, a robotic woman would be better than a real woman. I still prefer the real woman. Imperfect. But more life. More character. 
Good FM tuner for around $1K
Sansui TU-9900Out of all the best fm tuners made, that also look good, and can be found for under a grand ... that is my pick. I have one in stock form, that is fantastic. Had it for years. Never been opened up, but one of these days, I'll do the ... 
Why do I see more Vandersteen model 3s vs model 2s for sale?
There's not a lot of audio pioneers like that. It's a testament for his love of what he does, and the fact he cares about his customers getting enjoyment out of his efforts.I have to say the same for Richard Schram of Parasound. I have a pair of h... 
Why do I see more Vandersteen model 3s vs model 2s for sale?
I have three turntables .... bring it on!I agree with tomic in that there really is no reason not to enjoy most speakers (if they are good) in any room. I think some speakers get "moved on" prematurely, without spending the necessary time to test ... 
Why do I see more Vandersteen model 3s vs model 2s for sale?
While Vandersteens can be finicky to setup, the payoff is great for both Model 2C and 3A. I have owned both, non-sig models, and still have the 3A’s. Mine started off as 3’s and the original owner I bought them from, sent back to Vandersteen at so... 
Oppo Ceasing production
OPPO has had a good run and everyone I’ve talked to who owns one of their decks, absolutely loves them. So yeah, it seems this is a poor decision, that for all we know is based on what the masses want.But the masses are like sheep. They go where t... 
VANDERSTEEN 2 owners can get $500 for trade in
Let’s be honest. If you have the money to buy the Treo, on up, $500 isn’t really that much. Two years ago I sold my 2C’s for $600 in two days. Hopefully, someone will be excited just by you mentioning this and jump on the deal. I am glad there is ...
