Are audiophiles crazy?
One way totally discredit oneself is to take the stance that “snake oil” does not exist.The second, at least here, is to base an argument on our alumnus Geoffkait. You have to do better than that.Otherwise you are merely adding evidence to support... 
Is this an right time to buy hifi?
Money is worthless.  It’s the things it buys that is valuable.   
Are audiophiles crazy?
Well the best way to stay off the demented audiophile merry go round is to realize that all recordings are different and not perfect to start with and seek to play them back accurately as they are, not as something that you want them to be or thin... 
2 Ohm Tekton Pendragons
@p05129 Well the internet is a powerful tool for shaping opinions. Seems like if you repeat something enough some perhaps many people will believe it. Need not be true. There is a lot of that at play these days. Especially when it cost you nothing... 
2 Ohm Tekton Pendragons
Reading the marketing write up on the site for the product, sounds like this product is pitching a unique sound to its cult like fans. I suppose distortion associated with low impedance speakers used with most amps would produce a unique sound tha... 
2 Ohm Tekton Pendragons
Idol worship is an interesting phenomenon.why 2 ohm? Shoot for one. Zero.....sure why not as long as it’s high efficiency. Loads are overrated.

Crazy does at least sound better than fanatical, deranged or demented.  
Looking for speaker advice-$10-20k
I’ve heard Klipsch Heresy IV off that Anthem amp. Very nice! How about larger Klipsch?  Cornwall perhaps? I’d like to hear that.

Talk to @atmasphere. He will tell you how lower impedance = more distortion. The question is always how much (will vary by amp) and is the distortion pleasant sounding or not. One thing for sure you will likely be advised to NOT use Atmasphere amp...

IT's not a good thing to be in debt.   If you are don't make it worse by spending a ton more.   That's the problem.   Sometimes its inevitable but many times its people who put themselves into debt seeking things they really can't afford.   Good n... 
Dream Speakers = landed. Now I need to feed them!
Why not "cheap out" initially with Fosi? It’s fast and easy and no risk. If you don’t like it you can return it or maybe find use for it elsewhere in a second system for practically nothing by high end audio standards.In general, I find it is a mi... 
2 Ohm Tekton Pendragons
2 ohm? Really?  Interesting. Personally I’d let others try those first.Or just take advice from those with simple and biased views of how things work just because and try it for yourself.I’d be interested to hear out it works out. Also some measur... 
Gato speakers
Well I do like the aesthetics of their electronics for whatever that is worth. Nice looking stuff. Danish flair...  Seem to be much better positioned in Europe than here at present FWIW.    
Dream Speakers = landed. Now I need to feed them!
If you want to get started with Bluetooth in an amp that will probably sound pretty  good for a pittance with zero risk (returnable) as an easy start consider: Amazon.com: Fosi Audio I have one of these driving a pair of KEF ls50s, not an easy t...

People should make the best of everyday because you never know what tomorrow brings.
