Innersound ESL amplifier - good choice?
bradzI spoke with Duke and he seems very knowledgeable and straight forward. He thinks the Plinius is very good as well. Have you heard the Plinius (any of them) and what did you think? I am in the middle of really listening to the Innersound with...

sorry about the triple post I have no idea how it happenedPhil

thank you everyone,As I write this I am listening to the Innersound ESL amp (30 day trial period) and I wanted to share some very rough and preliminary views. I am using the Innersound speaker wire and will compare that with the Nordost and report...

thanks wellfedEVERYONE reading this should read the zero website, at the very least interesting and maybe more (different = fear?). I do not know what to think but I will investigate further as I have often wished the Maggies were about 12 OHM's.P... 
Bright / forward speaker cables.
those are two qualities that I have read about Nordost Blue Heaven cables a few times, and my own hearing has proved it as I own the speaker wire and IC. They have a wonderful sense of low level detail as well.

Thanks everyone, I welcome all comments negative or posative as I feel like I can learn from both.Asa, your comment about the subtlely threadbare quality is exactly the sort of thing I am concerned about with a solid state amp (after 20 years of l...

BradzCool, we almost have the same system. I am glad you are happy and look forward to more correspondence with you.You will be happy with the 99 Magnum, I had it done and there is more detail and better extension, but also the dynamics improve co...

Thanks Plato, Do you think it has a specific sound? How was it a great combo? It sounds like you do not have that system anymore did you replace the 99?I think I will probably try it out but am still looking for more input.thanks againPhil 
MOST tubelike solid state amp
I am suprised no one mentioned the Innersound ESL amplifier.I am under the impression it is very smooth, but NOT tube like? Maybe there are not many out there. Anyone care to comment? 
Rogue owners what speakers do you like?
thanks so far audiogoners (?) by the way, I have Maggie 1.6 QR's. I feel like I always know what is going on in a recording, and while very defined top to bottom and a well balanced sound, I have not reached audio nirvana. My system is lacking in ... 
Do "Tube Rings" really work?
I use Audio Research clear tube rings (the cheapest out there) and the signal seems cleaner and maybe a little sterile. I will take them off soon and listen some more. At the very least they are a tweek to be used when you have found your perfect ... 
What to expect: Revel Performa M20 from Mag. 1.6QR
the maggies are 86db and 3.75 ohms (I know, not much difference). They just never really sing. Maybe the Linn 'beat' thing has something to it. The Planet is musical in the best sense, while it is not super detailed and maybe a little warm, the mu...
