Tube Rolling the Jolida/Black Ice dsd Dac
Any updates on the Tube upgrade?I’m looking at getting some new tubes for the fx dsd.

Thank you Tom,Now that I understand corner placement it all makes sense. How high off the ground are the coaxial drivers located?Your distance between the speakers as the crow flies must be about 5-6’?

As you might have guessed by now, my installation is weird. My PPs are in a corner at 3' each from the corner with their tails near the ceiling. ( I couldn't get 4' due to physical constraints.) Their 45° vertical and horizontal launch from the sy... 
Klipsch Heresy IV - not what I was expecting
This may have no bearing on anything, but I heard a pair of Cornwall III speakers being driven by a Mcintosh 252 and I thought it didn’t sound good at all. Sound was confined and not free from the speakers. Definitely didn’t disappear and sounded ...

@tomthiel  One Thiel speaker that has interested me is the CS1.7. Its really hard to find anything written on them other than specs. I know the 3.7 are really good (and really large).  The 2.7 is nice too and they are all from the same generation ... 
Paradigm Persona 9H - hard to drive !?
I heard the big Persona 9H with Anthem separates and it was one of the best sounds I've ever heard in high end.
