Volume Control Too Sensitive
I really am enjoying all of these wise ass comments your giving me. I guess it gives you a hardon to insult those with questions. Such brilliant comments such as 'buy a better preamp' FYI, the Bryston BP-26 was rated high by the Absolute Sound mag...

from what others are saying in the forum, that the Bryston BP-26 is a bright sounding preamp, and that the Classe CAM-200's are neutral sounding monoblocks?   what are your thoughts?

Tried connecting a Cambridge Audio integrated amp up to my 802d's, Rated at 100wpc, wow what a difference. Not saying good/bad, but what a contrast. my Bryston BP-26 is bright and light on bass, where the Cambridge Audio is not bright at all, with...

IBryston BP-26. Another point mentioned in another forum, which is more severe in my system is the Bryston BP-26 connected to the Classe CAM-200 via XLR, my volume range is literally from 6 to 7 (clockface speaking) This is very annoying when tr...

That's what I noticed with the Sopra 3's. It's as if the Beryllium tweeter and the diamond tweeter are both 'hyper tweeters'. Crystal clear but fatiguing. After having the Focal 936's in my house for a couple of weeks (non Beryllium  tweeter) i n...

let me ask... how would you describe the B&W sound? How would , in your words, describe the sound of the 802D (1st gen) diamonds. I'm still learning on putting words to define some of the sounds

I have auditioned both the 802D3 and recently the D4. Honestly, the 802D3 I felt was the worst of the series. I felt like I was listening to each of the drivers separately and not as on speaker. The D4 seem to have fixed that issue, but it does se...

Can anyone comment on the Blad 2 vs the Focal Sopra 3's?  
how would you describe a system that is musical in nature
I think i'm beginning to understand. Years ago i had a pair of those huge Polk SDA SRS 1.2tl speakers. I do remember listening to live concerts and being so absorbed by the music that nothing else was happening around me. As i attempted to improve... 
What is wrong with my system?
Update, I’ve removed the Audioquest Water interconnects from my cd player to my preamp. I still have the Water interconnects between the preamp and the monoblocks.I replaced the interconnects from the cd player to the preamp with a pair of Audio...
