|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.

@raysmtb1... you mean the "Bricasti" is the clear winner, correct?
|Emission Labs Tube Warranty Problems|

|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|

|What happened to Audio Aero?|
Any reputable tech can replace the tubes or troubleshoot simple things.
|Anyone drive Verity Audio Parsifal Encores with tubes?|
Audiogoner @Montaldo drives Encores with Quicksilver V4 monoblocks. Great sounding combo. I'd use tubes if I owned them.
|The Most "Analog" CD Player?|
ditto @antigrunge2 regarding Audio Aero Capitol. I have the Capitol Reference modded with Jupiter copper foil caps and Mullard tubes... best digital sound I've ever experienced. Too bad they don't make them any longer. If I had to buy another...
|Spendor D9.2 vs. Harbeth super hl5 plus xd + REL Stentor III vs. Spendor Classic 100?|
You can get a gently used pair of Harbeth M 40.2 or 40.2 Anniversaries with stands for $9.5 to $11.5K. There's also a mint pair of Rosewood Harbeth 40.1's listed on US Audio Mart for $7.5K. I've owned 40.1's twice and currently own 40.2 Anni's.....

@jjss49 looking forward to your impressions of your new Carver amp.
