I have three digital sources
Okay - pretty embarrassed to write about this one. Had a new set of 6922's around so opened up the dac this morning to replace my older pair and found I had a set of herbie's (I love your products most of the time) tube dampers on the 6922's. Popp...

I may well be legally deaf - certainly something going on when a 3k dac and 4k transport aren't in same league as $800 blueray player. My other gear is decent - a 300b amp and Lamm preamp. My dac is a 2.1 kit and wondering if something is not quit...

thanks Paul - very eclectic music tastes - Classical - been reading book Cello Suites so have been listening to a couple versions of this lately, some folk - lots of Greg Brown of late, jazz - 50's Monk to Jason Moran, and yes some hard rock - bee...

thanks for the responses.Paul - yours is most interesting to me. Actually did a comparison tonight using both Macbook with M2tech hiface and Accustic Arts as transports and it wasn't subtle that the Oppo se was better. So question is what is wrong... 
Perfect Wave DAC and Bridge
Desalvo - how does the perfect wave and transport sound on cds compared to the Oppo SE (stock). I have been mighty impressed with my Oppo Se and just wondering if this is a major upgrade from sound perspective. Enjoying this thread - thanks to all... 
from Zu Druids to....
I'd love to go to RMAF - on my must do list one of these years, every year I think about it but never make the plans. Glory thanks for advice on the stands - I was considering buying the AN stands as well. I find the dynamics of the Druids and bas... 
Zu Soul Superfly
I own 08 Druids which I run with a method sub. Maybe this has been covered off but for those who have heard both Druid and Superfly is the fly a significant upgrade to the Druid sound. If so in what way. I must admit I like the lower profile of th... 
High Efficiency Speakers Your top 3 or more
yep you are right got the models wrong. Have a medium to large living room so have been looking at Total Victory IV. Good to hear Coincident's amps are 300b's - didn't know about these amps. 
High Efficiency Speakers Your top 3 or more
I have been looking longingly at Coincident Super Victory 4's. At 96db they are on the cusp and really not sure whether my 8 watt 300b's will drive them. Surprised sometimes at how well my amps drive lower efficiency speakers but thinking about up... 
High Efficiency Speakers Your top 3 or more
I read some forums where the old / vintage school of high efficiency speakers - Klipsch, Tannoy, Altec, JBLs. even Audio Notes are the only way to go. On others like audiogon the newer high eff speakers - horns, Zu, Horning,Coincident, etc. are in...

great thread ... curious what you are using now Paul that you have moved past the Audio Notes and Tonians. 
Harbeth HLP3ESR
I have had these speakers for 6 months. Running them with an Accuphase e-530 which is 30 watts of Class A. I think this combo has become my perfect small room setup. Have tried lots of speakers in this small room of mine (11 x 12) and this setup i... 
New Audience Ultra High Resolution Adept Response
wow that is a serious blow the competition out of the water review. This review alone should sell lots of bybees. Will stick with my ar6t for now ... clean power could really take off in the next couple of years. 
Power Conditioners
I have borrowed an Isotek Sigmas for the weekend. In my system the change is dramatic - question seems to be though is the change a good one. Sounds like many put in conditioning and then find when they take it out prefer it after. My sense is the... 
Small speakers...big sound??
I have a new pair of Harbeth P3esr's. Can't believe a) how smooth and natural they sound and b) how big they sound. They compare very nicely with my Ellis 1801s which are a very large standmount and definately not bookshelf speakers in terms of so...
