Herbie’s Spike Decoupling Gliders: my…experience
Not sure what type of floor you have your speakers on, but if it is a suspended floor (wood floor over joists) the floor can get excited by the speaker, much more so in the bass region, and become a secondary transducer.  This would explain the mu... 
Ps audio aspen FR 30 Loudspeakers
ricevs, using your line of logic I would bet your speakers sound as good as they look. 💩 Since you have not heard the FR30, please refrain from making judgements on how they sound based on how they look.  Also, keep in mind Chris Brunhaver who des...

jgr757, you forgot to say "in my opinion" ... Sadly, PS Audio is a failure in high fidelity as it is in for maximizing profits. There are plenty of folks who disagree with you.

Per invalid’s post, here’s a link: FR30 crossover – PS Audio As dweller said, PS Audio is not going to AXPONA this year. They lost all of their exhibitor fees from the 2020 show (as did all exhibitors, though I think they got 50% back if they set... 
Selling gear with TMR
yogiboy, let's just say I haven't checked the fee schedule lately ...  2% is very reasonable, of course at that rate you pay whether you sell or not.  The alternative is almost twice that and more in line with what I was thinking.  Still, not bad.  
Selling gear with TMR
decooney, I've sold quite a few pieces here on Audiogon in the past and they have all been good transactions.  Of late though, I've heard of sales going bad and now there are significant fees for selling so I have procrastinated on selling things.... 
Selling gear with TMR
I recently sold two items to them and declined to sell three more items. The three I declined were way too low. One of them was DAC I bought from them a year ago, they offered less than 40% of what I paid them for it. Of the two I sold, one was an... 
Montreal Audio Show - anyone hear the FR30’s?
They won’t be at AXPONA.  PS Audio was going to show at the 2020 show but when it was cancelled the promoters did not refund any of the exhibitor fees. They lost about $10,000 so they will not be dealing with the promoter in the future.   
Vandersteen 3A Signatures with 2 dB difference between L and R Speakers
Make sure the adjustments for tweeter and midrange on the rear panel are set the same.  (Sorry if that seems obvious ...) 
20 amp cables for PS Audio P20?
I’m not sure if a 20A cable will sound different just because it is a 20A cable, but the P20 will provide more power and probably sound a little better when fed with a 20A cable from a 20A circuit.  If you only have a 15A circuit no point in the 2... 
Are these streams being replaced... node 2i, and PS
PS Audio is updating the DS DAC with a Mk II version, supposed to arrive sometime later this year.  It will not have provisions for the on-board Bridge though.  PS Audio will be bringing out a replacement for the Bridge as a separate box using the... 
If you could go to one Audio Fest this year, which one would it be?
chorus, where did you hear the info on AXPONA?  They had rescheduled for August, but got the “opportunity” to move to the end of October, so to improve the odds they rescheduled (again).  My ticket from last year is still good, but have no idea ab... 
external DAC with SACD
The device twoleftears recommends will do the job of extracting the SACD layer from the disc, however the SACD layer is DSD format and you will need a DAC capable of supporting DSD.  Your UltraLink does not support DSD so a new DAC will be require... 
Is Pentatone Bailing on SACD?
I too enjoy the music on PentaTone and was surprised to read your post on SACD.  I checked the PentaTone website and found the following, which indicates not all releases will be SACD, but they have not abandoned it.PENTATONE was founded with the ... 
Vandersteen Question
I’ve got original Model 5’s and have tried the rear tweeters on several occasions, but always think it is too bright.  My room is small and there is a concrete block wall behind the speakers so any rear output gets reflected back.  I did have some...
