gtaphilecould it be that it's running hot because it's brand new and needs time to settle in?Also,could you elaborate a bit more on the V2 sound characteristics vs the original? What speakers are you driving it with?I had been reading the company'...

@whitecamaross Hope your new room is all set and dandy by now.Fill us in on your take on the Levinson 533h when you get a chance, hopefully top to bottom and particularly the bottom... -:)did you use it with the Logans too? Or only your HT speaker... 
Center Channel Speaker Suggestion for HT
As ricred1's experience illustrates, not only the same brand but the same Series within a brand to keep Sonic uniformity...Unless the company uses the same drivers etc., throughout their different series, then perhaps mixing & matching would w... 
Using UK 230v in US
If you don't wanna go the way Erik mentioned, then just buy a "quality" made transformer...ie not one of those cheap ones on ebay etc.A DAC,if I'm not mistaken, would have a steady current as oppsed to amps that have instantaneous pick currents wh...

Anyone compared Sanders Magtech vs. McIntosh MC462/52 or MC611/01 with Magnepan 3.7/20.7?

Is a Bryston 3B SST2 enough for Magnepan 3.7i or 20.7?
Thank you Al,Ok then the idea of bridging just went out the door...🤗But To make sure I got this right:So what you are saying is that the amp should also close to triple it's power into the 2 ohm load (in the bridged mode) or about 3000w, in order ...

@almarg Hi Al,got a question for you:I’m looking at a stereo amp that can be bridged into mono, the increase in output is about 6 db over stereo:From 325@8/540@4 -> 1100@8/1500@4however,-the gain @8ohm also increases from 31 ->37 db-while th...
