klipsch speakers
you don't need lots of power for Klipsch speakers.  they are really efficient.  a used pair will suit him just fine.  But I do agree with the others.  Hearing loss is no joke and young people think they are invincible and can't get hurt.  Same wit... 
Explain what is a clean power amplifier?
Disconnect the pre-amp and keep the amp connected to the speakers.  turn the amp on.  Any noise?  no?  That is one level of clean.If there is noise, then the amp or the outlet voltage (or both) is definitely not cleannow connect the pre-amp to the... 
Thoughts and Ideas on Battery Powered Amplifiers?
I'm sorry, your voltage fluctuates between 100 and 122 volts??Where do you live???If it is anywhere in the USA, that is a serious issue and should be reported to the local utility.  Since I work in the utility industry I can tell you they take tha... 
My #@%$ Cat Destroyed My ARC REF 5SE. Soliciting Suggestions.
I took the plexiglass cover off my REF 6 and took a look.  If the REF 5SE is anywhere close, then Audio Research used through hole parts on the circuit board.   Also, on the REF 6 main board, I didn't see any logic circuitry.  That was on other bo... 
My #@%$ Cat Destroyed My ARC REF 5SE. Soliciting Suggestions.
@goldenear19;  What's with the Audio Research bashing? It's okay that you don't like Audio Research for your own personal reasons.  However, in my opinion, most things are over priced and over hyped.  So, include all the other items out there in y... 
My #@%$ Cat Destroyed My ARC REF 5SE. Soliciting Suggestions.
Unless parts are unobtainable, anything can be repaired.  It's just up to you whether it is worth it to do so.  If it was me, I wouldn't hesitate.  You would spend approximately the same for a used REF 5SE vs getting this one repaired. I would bit... 
... abit confused: how does a power cord affect the presentation of sound...
I already stated the technical side.1. voltage handling capability must be met2.  Current carrying capability must be met3.  Impedance (resistance, inductance, capacitance) changes over frequency.  this is the reason why cables that meet 1 & 2... 
Have you ever got emotionally attached
Wow! Rowland 8T.  Now that's a nice amp.enjoy 
... abit confused: how does a power cord affect the presentation of sound...
I understand that many subjects have already been discussed many times over the years.  However, many times, it is difficult to surf through the years of posts to find adequate responses.  So, it really isn't a problem for a new audiophile to post... 
Audio Research Ref 6 SE
I just remember that from the REF 5 to REF 5SE, to me, it wasn't enough of a sonic improvement to "justify" me purchasing the REF 5SE from the REF 5.  However, there was enough of an improvement (just enough) for me to justify going from a REF 3 (... 
ditch the Krell FPB 400cx for my 'new' Sophia 2's?
If there is nothing wrong with the Krell amp or the sound from it with those speakers, I wouldn't even think about replacing it.I know there was a time when Krell products seemed very bright to my ears, but I don't think this amp fell within that ... 
Who does Krell KSA-150 rebuilds/recapping ??
If anywhere close to Los Angeles, CA, I would use George Meyer AV.They are very good with Krell, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, etc.enjoy 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I have heard the 3.7 vs some other speakers mentioned.  I don't agree at all with viber6's assessment of electrostatic speakers.  But, we just agree to disagree.  I have heard many speakers directly compared to certain electrostatics and unless yo... 
XLR cable with warmth without losing resolution
I suggest looking into Audio Art Cables out of San Diego California.Robert Fritz (619) 255-6451 or their web page.I was looking to get new cables since I moved my system such that I would no longer need 25 foot XLR cables (don't ask).  I wanted to... 
High Powered Holographic Amplifiers
I honesty don't believe that the amp nor the speakers are the problem here.  If there exist a problem at all.  First question I ask is what exactly is missing (if any) from your experience.Are you missing dimensional sound?  If so, look elsewhere....
