Loudspeakers have we really made that much progress since the 1930s?
Certainly gains have been made in speaker design equipment and the parts used to implement ever more refined designs. However, as the owner of a horn hybrid system, I have to agree that the fundamentals of design have not experienced a paradigm sh...

Please excuse obviously misplaced post above. I plead senility.

1-Y here. I suppose that constitutes having met my military obligation. I showed up at the physical and did everything that was asked of me.¬†Fact is I was hit in the left eye by an errant rock while in high school and have had a blind eye ever sin...

rippet - I'm in Fruita at the westernmost end of the state. It's post card country for sure. Being a long recovered alcoholic, I cannot offer opinions on the beer made here from personal experience so I can;t enter into conversations about specifi...

rippet - Your observation certainly applies to me. Key lies in being satisfied. Weed expedites that transition but it can be accomplished without as well. Going all the way back to the penny stock days, we see that the driving force behind or hobb...

I forgot to mention that living in Colorado gives you legal access to the least expensive, most effective audio tweak I've ever become familiar with. My county is 70% public lands and still remains sparsely populated with just 150,000 people in an...

What used speaker would you buy with $20,000-$35,000 and why?
Large Advents for sure because you just never see them at that price.

What is the MSRP of a Capri S2 and two 525 amplifiers compared to that of a Continuum S2? 
What is the best OTL out there?
ZD542 - Have to agree with your endorsement of Ralph Karsten. He's one of the most sincere and gracious people I've ever met in this industry. 
What is the best OTL out there?
Tubegroover-Yes. No personal experience. But my history with Rick Brown makes me comfortable about conveying his endorsement. 
What is the best OTL out there?
Check out David Berning. Big splash at the recent Newport show. 
Jeff Rowland

Has anyone been banned from Steve Hoffman Forums?
That's right, Schubert. You and I are free to shoot our mouths off because no one pays any attention to us anyway. Just a couple of senile old nutcases.John Lennon, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King weren't so easily overlooked as I am though. What th...
