Stratospheric audio gear prices
I think in audio this is mostly true with speakers. But it is a choice. Some people don't mind spending 20 or 30k for speakers not just for the sound but because they have pretty cabinets. As opposed to tekton speakers where you can get just as go... 
MSRP, diferentiation and the illusion of value
Yet another thread that leads to tekton bashers. I own tekton moab's it is obvious by some of the comments who has actually heard them and those that associate price to sound quality. 
My NAD 3020 D proves your Class D tropes are wrong
Class D is used in most powered subs which is not to say it can produce high frequency well. But i do have a harman kardon receiver that is class D in one of my smaller systems and does very well with movies. If you want good clean power spend the... 
Building new system starting with power amp. What would you choose ?
I just built a new system a little over a year ago. I went with a mcintosh mc462 and am very happy with it. 
FTC may end amplifier rule! ACTION NEEDED
Most people on this forum know what to look for. It is the less informed consumers that are duped by inflated specs. Many manufacturers now get their advertised wattage with 1 channel driven into 6 ohms. Then salesmen tell them they are getting 14... 
Dedicated power
Spellchecker. Lol that was mofojo not motorola.. 
Dedicated power
Wow. 30A line will only allow you to draw current past the 20A without damaging wires or blowing fuses or circuit breakers. If you are drawing less than 20A you won't hear the difference with all else being equal.so for Motorola your amp won't "st... 
Why so many angry audiophiles?
No matter how much you spend. No matter how good the reviews. Whatever you have there will be someone to criticize it. When i close my eyes and just listen to my system and it puts a smile on my face. That is all that matters to me.. 
Speaker recommendation $10-20K (with some requirements!)
Millercarbon won't say it but i will. The answer could be tekton design moab or ulfberht. Problem is only way to hear them is if you know someone who has them or find an electronics show where they have a booth. They do allow you to return them if... 
Sound quality impact - preamp vs power amp?
Depends on what future plans are. If you put more into one than the other do you plan to upgrade the lesser soon. If this is going to be more long term setup i would say get an amp and pre-amp that match well. If you get one higher quality than th... 
Tekton Electron SE
In response to glupson hypothetical. If there was a difference there other differences as in is he using the same equipment also the room could be very different so i don't think there is enough there to say one way or the other. The problem is pe... 
Tekton Electron SE
People wonder why the hatred for tekton speakers. I have moabs. In my opinion people who say they have heard them and don't like them have either not really heard them or let their bias get in the way. Some of them i think are angry that they wast... 
More power for moderate listening levels?
In my opinion the most overlooked spec when choosing an amp is the reserve amps or instantaneous amps. This is a power reserve that helps especially in the midrange and lower end. It will also improve dynamics and overall sound at all levels. This... 
Still confused about clipping after reading all the articles.
Ok people make this more complicated than it needs to be. To make it more simple clipping is your amplifier trying to put out too much power. When you do this the distortion levels reach a point that can damage your speakers. You can damage 200 wa...
