I don't know about that but when I was doing research for my system I called a friend of mine who plays with them, Roger. I told him about my quest for a few minutes and proceeded to ask him what he knew about amps to which he replied "I have AirP...

I can accept that but if you can show me proof of that I'd retract position and apologize to everyone here for my ignorance.

"Best of luck getting them both set up. I think you should become an audio reviewer in your retirement. You have a refreshing no holds barred style that’s different from all the usual *ss kissing paycheck chasers. The only problem is I don’t think...

"Phil,Any early impressions of the Fortes? You like Em so far?"So far the Klipsch has them beat substantially but given that a really great musician/audiophile told me a couple of days ago that he loves his DI's I'm going to try to futz about with...

Thank you Doug, I'm beginning to think it was a setup thing too.  Do they need to be far from the back wall?  Maybe you'd like to earn a few bucks and help me set them up via FaceTime or Zoom.  Shoot me a PM if you're so inclined.  What kind of bi...

First, for a few of you, "when you point a finger, three point back at you". A) Yes, I wanted to sell them and did what anyone else would have done knowing that one of the resident "experts" would like them.  Would you say they suck if you wanted ... 
Upscale Audio and Primaluna
In retrospect, I wonder if I should have bought a Cayin instead of the PrimaLuna and saved a bunch but Upscale was pretty good thus far.  Also bought a pair of Klipsch.  
Upscale Audio and Primaluna
My experience with Upscale is somewhat limited, I only bought a PL EVO 300 and a pair of Klipsch Forte 4's from them but when I bought my amp Todd could have sold me more stuff but didn't.  Now, I can't really comment on the PL yet because I'm rea... 
what system musicians prefer? Do they care?
I'm a musician of forty years (local 802) and during my research of buying some gear I recently talked to a few of my friends including one who plays with Steely Dan and they all have very average or below average systems and AirPods.  We really d...
