|Focal 1028+Mcintosh MC275|
I wouldn't hesitate to own an MC 275 MKV again.
|Trelja and friends in New York, 2004|
@palasr Sadly, I don't think they DO know who they are, as they suffer from a lack of self-awareness.
|Help with Shortlist of Speakers! (SF vs Devore vs Others?)|
Look at the YouTube video’s for Fleetwood Audio Deville’s. Not very well known, but impressive sound quality, very efficient and unique with regards to craftsmanship and build quality. http://https//www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvJy2FGgneIhttp://https/...
|Tube Preamp - What to buy?|
No phono stage... but I'd be looking at Don Sach's and Aesthetics.http://www.dsachsconsulting.com/custom%20line%20stage.htmlhttp://http//www.dsachsconsulting.com/custom%20line%20stage.html
|What are your opinions of Sim Audio amplifiers?|
I owned W6 monoblocks paired with Dynaudio C4's more than a decade ago. I found them very underwhelming and sold them within a few weeks. Not impressed.
|Speaker suggestions please - going to the BIG city|
Used Harbeth M-40.2's ($10K) would be a good fit for your music preferences, room size and accompanying electronics.
|Acoustic BBQ Cables|
I love my Acoustic BBQ Dueland speaker cables.
|The Luxman L-595A SE integrated is coming. |
Swing and a miss on the aesthetics.
|Harbeth 30.1, 30.2, XD|
@twoleftears @Ryder comments are spot on. This also applies to Harbeth 40.1 and 40.2 Anniversaries as well. Both great speakers, but I find the 40.2's are more difficult to place and benefit from room treatment.
|Tubes for Cary V12 amps. |
I recently tried Mullard re-issues in my Music Reference RM9 MKII and was very disappointed. The best sounding I've used are RAM EL34's from The Tube Audio Store @ $35 each.
|Bricasti M3 vs. Holo Audio May vs. PS Audio DS|
@raysmtb1... you mean the "Bricasti" is the clear winner, correct?
|Emission Labs Tube Warranty Problems|
That's lame service and poor professionalism on the part of the distributor. I always assumed they were reputable, but your experience proves otherwise.
|Opinion on audio note kit dac 5.1 or 4.1|
I demo'ed a 3.1 in my system for a few days. Nice sound... smooth and warm, but not as good as my previous DAC Luxman (DA-06) and current DAC (Audio Aero Capitol Reference). Could be a synergy thing, as I could see the Audio Note being a good fi...
|In doubt about vac phi 170 IQ mono blocks and zesto eros 300 mono blocks|
If the VAC Phi 170 sounds anything like the VAC Phi 200, you can find better sound for less money in my experience.
|What happened to Audio Aero?|
Any reputable tech can replace the tubes or troubleshoot simple things.
