My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I too enjoyed the interview. Great insight into speaker designing/building.

@thezaksDave, agreed.

This thread always seems to devolve to this and that’s too bad. When a person does not have experience with the gear being discussed, it leaves them no room to validly comment nor credibility with others. That’s why I don’t chime in on gear I’ve n...

You can write about this and about that. But it is all drivel until they are played against Jays competition. Time for the bloviating to stop. 
What do "audiophiles" use to judge equipment?
Ummm, my ears.

Jay, agreed; this is solid good advice. It IS better to continue to save to get into the top end stuff. You will then have gear that you won't want to change after a relatively short time, you'll just want to spend as much time as possible in fron...

@logydoghan,Last I heard, nearly all WAMM systems were setup with Thors Hammer. I've heard those subs on both Alexx and XVX. They add a lot, but more air/ambience than pounding bass - Wilson uses a stereo crossover and the Wilson rep uses an app o...

Mbl, setup by the North American rep sounds amazing - heard it a number of times. The Extreme system will totally blow your mind, you just need a big room to set up in.

@jays_audio_lab Totally agree with you. Alexx totally kills the Alexia 2. Can't super charge a DAW to sound like an Alexx either.

@kren0006Agreed. It is always the same few that take this thread off course. If those posters want to go there, find, or create, a place/thread that appreciates that discussion. I, for one, have heard many many systems and I'd love to have just sp... 
To Stream or Not to Stream
Just do it. So much already said. Access, excellent sound, ease of use, and did I say access? Access to so much content. I listen to all kinds of stuff that I never did before. And I only play CDs in the car. I've given away and/or sold many alrea...

Around 4 years ago I heard the Nagra Classic line amp + preamp along with Wilson Sabrina's, Aurender W20, dCS Bartok I think, plus Transparent power cables and I forget what other wire. It was very good. My impression was different than Jays, but ...

@viber6 "this digression about Jay's health shows that we care about his and others' well being." I agree with that and think that those who have posted did so out of their hearts. I thank and admire them for that.

@rh67"It helps to think young and to stay active it's all you can do." Couldn't agree with you more.Jay, you missed Luxman, though that doesn't fit in the ultra-high end gear.It is hard to hear many of these brands unless you live in a large metro...
