When someone listens to your system for the first time.
dawgfish, that sounds lovely, I bet you would of loved to have Clapton in the next room, if that were true I imagine your guests would of been floored and they never would of left.

It's no good bringing over people (non-audiophiles) to evaluate nothing because they have no experience to evaluate. Most regular people just want to turn it (your system) in to a juke box.

I had two people over the other day. As soon as I fired the system up they started laughing. I asked what was so funny and they said nothing. You see a good system can bring out the best in people. 
Class D amps seem poised to take over. Then what?
It reminds me of an ad I posted on US Audio mart one time. A buyer asked me what a JC Penny ad has to do with me selling a tuner. Most people understand that US Audio Mart routinely puts ads on their sellers ads. Alternatively you should of figure... 
HELP! I bought equipment drunk, don’t know anything.
Hi, you should make it a rule to never do business when you are drinking unless its just a couple of drinks. I don't think the two mix  
Class D amps seem poised to take over. Then what?
Unfortunately Class D amps are not even as good as Midfi Class A/B. They are not taking over anything, they're just wowing some people with their extended highs, full midrange, fine details, black  background and tight bass. Once you get over that... 
Amp keeps shutting off
Do you have a spare receiver or amp you could test on these speakers? 
Class D amps seem poised to take over. Then what?
Class D amps have gotten better without doubt. They are performing on a level never thought achievable. But as good as they are in providing great transparency, detail, full midrange (vocals) and deep mind-blowing bass they still fall short in del... 
I had a few drinks and bought some speakers, I've now sobered up
Welcome to the speaker game.  Since speakers are a huge investment I would want to hear them first before purchasing unless the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. I would be more inclined to have a few drinks after a negative purchase. 
Low power amps and speaker damage?
Do neither, don't over-power them or under-power your speakers especially if you are going demand higher listening levels. Match the amp to the speakers and they are going to sound their best. You don' want to put a 200 watt per channel amp on spe... 
Is D for Dry? Class D...
Just like Class A or Class AB, some sound fabulous and some sound mediocre at best, same applies to Class D. The one thing I like about Class D amps they are very sensitive to slightest cable changes (poer and signal and that could be compared to ... 
Class D amps that are superior to all or most?
I just want to mention one other note on the Edge A2-300 Class D amp. It uses the exact same Ice Modules that Jeff Roland uses in his latest Class D amps and the Edge A2-300 puts out a potent 150 watts per channel in to 8 ohms and it is bridgeable... 
Samsung flat screen TV’s
There is a good reason they killed off the Plasma TVs. Reason one, they generally last longer. Reason two, the picture is more natural and easier on your eyes. The LED TVs are way too bright and it has been proven that that form of light emitted f... 
Holographic Soundstage ?
Keep your Krell amp and add a nice VTL tube preamp, you'll have all the holographic sound one could ask for. 
Class D amps that are superior to all or most?
What if I told you there is a Class D amp that retails for $500.00 (made in Sweden), includes shipping and sounds every bit as good as Class D amps that sell for up to $2,500?  Well such an amp exists, the Edge A2-300. Some have referred to it as ...
