Headroom Loss for 1600w on 14ga/120v
I'm not surprised you don't know your speaker cable specs, though you should for all the technical advice you attempt to proffer here. Mine are 11.5g, the combination of 3 16g conductors each way round braided. They're not too bad and they look li... 
Preamps... understanding volume...
@elizabeth I'm not sure where you got your understanding of pre-amps, but ALL active pre-amps apply gain to the signal. The simplest of them attenuate an incoming signal before passing it through a gain stage or two. Others may buffer the incoming... 
What is trully important?
I never understood the fascination some have with the studio monitor paradigm. Studio monitors aren't hifi speakers and the intent of their design is to be very flat and analytical. Personally, I'm more interested in what a recording is mastered o... 
Tekton or Klipsch
I'm not the biggest horn fan in the world, but Klipsch Heritage products are extremely well built with a solid reputation and a very high quality, refined sound. They're designs standing the test of time better than some glaciers. None of that can... 
What is the least compressed signal?
Ddjr,Personally, I lean towards digital for a couple of main reasons. First, there's more quality to be had in the digital format. That's a technical fact beyond dispute, but this isn't science, it's art, so that fact has disputable subjective val...

Auxinput,Rest assured, I'm NOT Geoff. I've had a fairly colorful life, but it's been a pretty chill existence and I fully intend to keep it that way. I'm gonna go show a friend of mine Geoff's website for some good laughs.

@cleeds What extensive evidence? The evidence you and Geoff keep citing I debunked? That miserably flawed, unscientific evidence? You're just going to ignore the thousands of examples of CDs that have vastly better dynamic range than vinyl because... 
What is the least compressed signal?
CDs do have better dynamic range and that's just a fact. It's a fact because you can measure it and price it. By the way, I’m confused by how substituting one arbitrarily scale for another arbitrarily scale removes error from the data.

Again, false data that means nothing.  
What system can adequately reproduce the sounds of a tanker being hit by torpedo ?
What system can adequately reproduce the sound of one hand clapping? Who's actually heard a torpedo hit a tanker up close and lived to describe it? I'm going to venture a guess and suggest that the sound of a torpedo hitting a tanker is more likel...

@noble100 Kosst doesn't have a wife. Kosst went through two. One went to prison for attempted murder. The other died a year and half ago of a heroin overdose. Kosst is a single dad of a 15 year old daughter and wouldn't get married again for all t...

@geoffkait What mechanism exactly "weeds out" systemic flaws in an unscientific compilation of measurements? There are no standards or controls being applied at all. And what kind of quantitative assertion is "From my experience the data in the da... 
Pass Labs AMP’s- What is the best Pass Amp Sound for You from past 10 years
@teajay The XA25 isn’t a .8 series amp. That’s why it’s not called the XA 25.8 It doesn’t feature a balanced topology nor supersymmetry feedback. It’s a 3 stage, unbalanced, complementary topology utilizing current feedback. It’s basically an F5 u...

@geoffkait Pretty sure I debunked that website and explained why their results aren't worth anything, but I'll explain again if I wasn't clear.That website is merely a database of user submitted results using any number of methods to gain a measur... 
Your Side by Side Experience With Best Vintage vs Newer Expensive Hi Tech Speakers
@vinny55 Hmmmm.... (Looking at stereo in front of him) Yes, those do appear to be tone controls on that Marantz there, and they're all pointed at 12:00 because my Focals don't need the controls jacked with. The ESS AMT1's in my bedroom powered by ...
