Does anyone know if Vapor Audio is still in business?
Unfortunately I believe the proprietor of Vapor suffered a tragic personal loss years ago. I don’t think the business ever recovered after that.    Never got to hear a pair, but heard good things.  
A rookie with 10K, seeking advise
I would shop speakers. I've never heard the Wharfdale Linton speakers so I am not making a value judgment on how they sound.  While money doesn't always translate into better sound, the point of diminishing returns with speakers is, IME, much hig... 
Can anyone tell me where the progress in audio went?
The responses proceeding my post prove my point. Progress assumes advancement from a lesser point to a better one.  By most technical aspects audio equipment has and continues to progress.  Preferring vintage gear is completely subjective. It do... 
Can anyone tell me where the progress in audio went?
I think; and I'm as guilty of this as any audiophile, that the progress in audio has been dedicated towards absolute fidelity and we all mostly hate it.  You can get a 225 watt Purifi amplifier made, in a case that you could hold in one hand, wit... 
New Project RS2T transport
At this rate it has to make sense to try the Jays. Multiple units coming defective. What’s the long-term longevity of the unit with this many QC issues?    I myself use an Audiolab and have been thinking very hard about upgrading to the Project, ... 
Electrostatic speakers
I couldn’t find any information on these from an, admittedly short, Google search.    Do they have bias adjustment? Check the back of the speaker for some sort of pot that is adjustable.  
new kef ls60s just arrived
The idea behind something like the Kef 60s is enticing; the issue is longevity. The LS50 wireless had issues with failing electronics. Shipping back a broken LS60 to have the electronics repaired is quite a risky endeavor. I've personally experien... 
Amplifier Damage
Can anyone further clarify on this issue?  This sounds like something I have done in the past. If I am breaking in a new component, say a preamp for example, I wouldn't turn the amplifier on when not listening. I would just let the preamplifier c... 
Loud 'crack' before song plays
From how you describe the noise, I think I’ve had similar occurrences with certain digital combinations.    Next time you listen try and note if the bit depth or bit rate are changing between songs. If so, the noise might be the Node and Emotiva ... 
Manly Stingray....Opinions from any owners?
Poke,  I can’t speak for the Stringray, but I had a pair of Neoclassic 250s once upon a time. They were around 10 years old, maybe a little older, if I remember correctly. I was the second owner. Truly a great product with great customer service... 
Yep much to do about nothing. Fear brains.
@mapman  i usually don’t involve myself in internet arguments these days. It’s wasted energy with little reward.    I work in healthcare and have to see the impact of this shortage on parents  everyday right now.. The dismissal of it as no big d... 
Yep much to do about nothing. Fear brains.
@nonoise  That article proves my point. No one is sympathizing with Abbott, they are equally at fault. The FDA was told about the issue back in September. They did nothing.  They waited until four infants died before panic-acting and shutting th... 
Yep much to do about nothing. Fear brains.
@nonoise  You are so disingenuous and your response completely proves my point. You immediately made it democrat versus republican. Hysterical!  Trump isn't in office anymore; get over it. He left 17 months ago. The current president and his adm... 
Yep much to do about nothing. Fear brains.
@ghasley  The federal government becomes responsible for baby formula when it directly gets involved in the purchasing, manufacturing, and import-limiting of the product.  You can't take a significant amount of control and oversight over a produ... 
Yep much to do about nothing. Fear brains.
What I find sad and pathetic are people that are so married to their politics that they dismiss the very evident reality that right now infants in this country are at risk of starvation, malnutrition, and death because of the shortage.   These sa...
