|Room size definition|
Agree with the others. You won't be happy with such small speakers in that room and the 804's would be better. But if you insist on trying, go ahead.
|If there was only ONE album/cd/release you can listen to, over and over.............|
Easy, only one correct answer: Rumours, Fleetwood Mac
|How Did Your First Audiophile Experience Impact Your Audio Journey?|
Early to mid 90's in college, no money, but roommate and I would spend countless hours at B&M's and the big box stores listening to systems. When I heard top series B&W speakers, which blew away the Pioneer/Kenwood/Boston Acoustics... stu...
|Amplifier Recommendation for Spendor D9.2 Speakers|
Luxman is a great pairing. Cambridge Edge series also. I’ve got three Spendor D series speakers. D9.2, D7, D1. The next amp I get will probably be Luxman L509x for the 9.2’s. Have CA Edge W and NQ on the D7’s, and the D1’s get Electrocompaniet cur...
|Luxman Knockoffs or Counterfeits?|
This reference to “counterfeits” is a red herring. To my knowledge there have never been reports of Luxman counterfeits, which would be fakes produced by a company other than Luxman. Duh, differs countries have different electrical requirement...
|Luxman 509x vs Hegel H390|
No such thing as 509uxii. do you mean 509x or 590axii?
|Is there such a thing as a FOREVER DAC/streamer?|
No, there is not
|Yamaha CD S1000 or S2100 as transport|
I own the CDS1000 and think it is phenomenal. Tray is butter smooth on open and close, completely silent. Super impressed with it. It's the only SACD I have in use at the moment and nothing to previously compare it to, unless we count a Pioneer ...

|Choosing Integrated Amp For New B&W Speakers |
All three are excellent choices - I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them. I own Edge separates (W and NQ) and like them very much. Love the Luxman sound as well. Haven’t heard the Krell but know it has many fans (literally and figurativel...
This has been an interesting thread on streamers. I understand from Bliss’s comment on page 1 that Aurender is great at streaming but optimized also for storage for those that have files. That’s not me. No files to play. Simply Tidal or Qobuz str...
|The Risks of Buying Demo Gear|
Depends on the dealer. If you frequent the store, you probably have a pretty good idea of how much use a particular component gets. Can be a steal with full warranty for barely used components. Yeah be more careful with speakers for sure. People s...
|WEISS 501-502 DAC|
I just saw on the weiss website that there are now "4-channel" versions of both the 501 and 502, and they are considered upgrades. Go to the site and read for yourself - I wasn’t that interested so didn't take the time to delve into, just noted it...
|What became of Mahgister?|
haha, well I guess that’s it then - at least he didn’t die. probably resurface under some other name i’d imagine ... likely won’t be hard to recognize, ha
|Cullen Cable |
Another update. Patrick's still making cables and responded to me within 24 hours with a quote. I placed the order yesterday. Seems to be same as ever. Looking forward to receiving great cables.
