SimAudio Moon North Collection
I heard moon north 791/761 combo in two different occasions, once at the Toronto audio show last Oct and recently at a local shop. At the show, the moon set was paired with B&W 802 and Joseph Audio perspective2s at the shop. I found them very ... 
A.I. music
This is why I have committed invest in an analog setup and get high quality vinyl records now. I know that in future the way we access digital music will be very different. Depending on your social status or score, you might not be able to listen ... 
SabrinaX vs JA Perspective2 Graphene
@soix @prof @disc - your posts on JA Perspectives 2 certainly have helped me to make the decision. Although I didn't think my dealer had the speakers set up most ideal way, but going by what I heard at a show and online feedback from just about ev... 
SabrinaX vs JA Perspective2 Graphene
Pulled trigger on a new pair of Joseph Audio Perspective 2 today. A new chapter in my audio journey has started 😊👍    
So many good choices and here is my upgrade plan
When I am in the mood for close up listening or some real mid range magic then I use Falcon LS 3/5a Gold Badge. Otherwise, I use the Dynaudio speakers.  
Speakers - Your "Safest" Choice
@markalarsen ​​​which YG Peaks speakers did you hear and how would you compare them to your JA Perspective2s?    
I want to replace the router/modem Comcast with a high quality for streaming
Based on my experience what worked for me has been: 1. Put audiophile grade network switch in front of your streamer - I use LHY8 2. Put the best network cable between the audiophile switch and streamer - I use Revelation Audio Labs cable. total... 
My Four Favorite SS Amps
So far I am really enjoying class a sound from my pass amp. No plan to upgrade for now. Totally happy with the sound  
New Falcon ls3/5a Silvers in the house
I have Falcon ls3/5a gold badge. Found few tips to get best of em. 1. They need power. The little speakers make my pass labs X250.8 amp needle move. 2. Place them lower. For me, 22 inch stand is perfect, tweeter at my ear level. Good bass too. 3. ... 
Yes, another audiophile at a crossroads story and request for advice
I have both headphones and speakers setups and each gives me different musical enjoyment. Really good headphone setup delivers very intimate, involving, and incisive listening. My tube preamp LTA Microzotl has an excellent headphone out, but I pre... 
Speakers - Your "Safest" Choice
Start by looking at a used market and see what brand speakers that sell at 20k mrsp are listed. Avoid the ones that are listed too often n frequent. Buy those ones that hardly come up on sale. Such as Wilson SabrinaX, JA Perspective2(less than 20k... 
Help. System sounds thin and bright or harsh
@cymivka - I have x250.8 and psm156. They work beautifully. If you're looking for preamp, I recommend LTA MicroZOTL preamp. I just got it and sounds wonderful with Pass and Falcon Ls3a/5, which tells me it would also work well with harbeth.   
What is your experience with the Spin Clean?
I have one and cleaned about 30 records - mostly used ones from 70s. Not sure how much difference it makes because I don't play them without going through spin disc first, but after cleaning session is done, I see the water is dirty. So cleaning w... 
Fantasy or reality? Inexpensive solid state preamps that get you 80% there?
Now days even listening Spotify from macbook pro can give a decent music listening for many people. But we audiophiles want something more, we want to experience that realism and stereo effect that surrounds our head- da magic!  Unfortunately, to ... 
Backert Labs Rhumba 1.3 vs Extreme
Just to give a quick update, been listening to MicroZOTL preamp 2.0 for 3 solid days, and I must say this kit rocks. Microzotl - x250.8 - falcon ls3/5a gb is a sublime combo. Extremely musical and enjoyable. I don't want to leave my hifi, that's h...
