|low profile tuners?|
The Linn Kremlin is about 3" in height and it's LK box is small and fairly unobtrusive. The reception and sound is stunning. And they are going for around 1/5 of their original cost used these days ($1000 - $1200).
|Can someone give me an explaination re: power amp.|
I've never understood why so many regard the efficiency of a speaker as a virtue. The most accurate and best sounding speakers I have heard have also tended to be the least efficient. Take sealed/infinite baffle speakers for example - you have to ...
|Linn Keilidh Crossover|
Yes, I've done it a few times. - First, loosen the gold plated speaker terminal tighteners at the back of the speaker and let the crossover board (inside) rest in place, unsecured. (The crossover is mounted to the terminals inside the cabinet). -...
|Efficiency of speakers?|
My experience has been the opposite.I have always found that less efficient speakers sound more controlled and have the capability to produce a more convincing sense of scale and dynamics. A good sealed box enclosure (infinite baffle) tends to be ...

|Mute or pause whats "easier" on the gear?|
With a stick shift it's best to ride the clutch, drifting back and forth as you wait for the impending green light. It works best on a slight uphill incline. It draws a lot of attention too, which is fun.

|Bang and Olufsen|
I gave the Beolab 5's a listen a couple of months ago. I was quite impressed, despite the fact that the balance was biased to the left and the salesman could not figure out how to correct it. They are dynamic and have a good tonal balanced for the...

|Problems with shipping to Canada|
I'm Canadian, and I end up going to Seattle to pick stuff up, because CANADIAN CUSTOMS are a pack of petty rogues. In fact I'm in the US right now picking up an architectural model that I had a friend of mine build. He builds violins, guitars, man...
|Better for Separates Newbie: Rotel or Adcom?|
I would also recommend Rotel. I have owned a Rotel CD player (RCD 970 BX), and an integrated amp (RA 970). Both were very well designed and built, and sounded exceptional (CD player in particular). I would argue that this is right around where the...
|Why are audiophiles perceived as being wackos?|
Pbb's explanation that "High fidelity is an ersatz", as convenient as it seems, may be a pretty good insight. Re-creating music via high fidelity equipment is rather sort of an ongoing science experiment to which there is no conclusive answer. The...
|Shipping to Canada? Don't use UPS|
I spoke too soon - just received a bill from FedEx for the bike that I received. They want $90 - roughly half for brokerage fees, rest tax and duty. There is no easy way to buy stuff across the border. Canada customs is a pain in the arse!
