@chazzzy007Wow, my heart goes out to you.BTW, I have an N10 and was able to bring the noise floor much lower using an UpTone Audio EtherREGEN with a Paul Hynes SR4T LPS. Would love to try an N20 or W20SE.

@rsf507 @kren0006I agree with you both on the Viber6 conversation. I've been perhaps a little too mild in my few postings asking for Viber6 to take a step back and hear what others have to say. If we could all just agree that none of our positions...

I've always had a negative view of Magico. I've heard them probably five plus times, don't remember what models (A3 twice, and some smaller and larger models), I just remember they never sounded good. I figured it was probably setup or associated ...

@jays_audio_lab All,See my post at 06-07-2021 6:41pm for reference. I went over to YouTube to listen to Jay's newest video and it had nearly no bass. But I was not surprised as it has happened to me many times. As Jay says on YT, they are "stabi...

@jays_audio_lab and othersIt seems that several of you are hearing a lack of bass and it is presenting as too much upper end. One poster wrote it is missing the "bottom octave". I have experienced this a number of times and can say unequivocally t...

@stereo5 Nice, friendly offer. This is the Agon that should be.

Is D for Dry? Class D...
@erik_squires Exactly.Don't just toss a bomb out there OP - labeling a whole class of amps as "dry and lifeless" is not based in any reality. There are good sounding Class D amps, I have one. The TAD M2500.
