Qln, Joseph Audio, Audiovector, Marten, or Canton...?
54 weeks ago I traveled to a dealer to hear QLN P 3’s, R3 Arrete’s and anything else he might have.  The demo was be done on the same integrated amp and streamer that I owned. The speakers and seat were set up carefully in a very proper listening... 
RiP Peter Breuninger AVShowrooms
Just learned of Peter’s passing from a friend. At this year’s Axpona, I was not in the building 60 yet, when Peter and Terry came walking by in the lobby.  I caught their eyes in order to tell them I enjoyed their videos. My condolences to his f... 
Competitive class D amp suggestions
+1 @snapsc I just heard Mr. Pass mention 2nd order harmonics in an interview. But your question about whether 3rd order harmonics is pleasing for complex music is interesting. And, while it may seem intuitive to presume that a system that can d... 
Competitive class D amp suggestions
+ @tweak1 — A good power cord on the Voyager is a is a must. —spring pods are such a deal (mine are autocrast. Same as nobsound. Inexpensive and so effective). Autocrast spring pods under my speakers are by far the best of the 4 vibration-man... 
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@markmuse : “It is closer than I expected it to be” The above line is what made me wonder if you specifically had a hunch one of these would sound better than the other.  But I get that you very well may have just not expected any two amps to be... 
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@markmuse  appreciate the initial comparison of AVA225 and LSA Voyager.  You say you didn’t expect the two amps to be so close.  Curious which one you expected to sound better?  
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@markmuse Audiovector R3 Arrete’.  They are 8 ohm and 90.5 sensitive.  A  friend of mine was just over and he liked them very much.  He has a big room and really enjoys his Fyne 704’s. The R3’s are the company’s smallest floorstander and happen t... 
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@markmuse, Thank you so much for doing this comparison.  I cannot wait to hear how the Voyager v AVA 225’s goes. The 225’s have been of great interest to me for a long time. I own the Voyager and loved it in used with my previous speakers.  But ... 
Krell K-300i vs. other integrated amps under 10k
@ei001h, I leave the Krell on indefinitely and also the Innuos player. I started doing that about 3 years ago since none of my gear has tubes. Everything plugs into a Puritan 156. I tried the Krell directly into the wall and liked it better in the... 
Krell K-300i vs. other integrated amps under 10k
I purchased the K-300ki from @yyzsantabarbara and could not be more thrilled with it. IIRC, the K-300i was the first product that used the iBias circuit although they may not have used that term in the original K-300i literature (or maybe even now... 
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
@Melm, very good observations regarding low-level detail/musicality.  With skill, you largely overcame the pitfalls of using words to describe music and gear with respect to the topic of your post. In my view, you left nothing out.  So the follow... 
Anybody else notice...
I’ve been cracking up for years over the ubiquitous extraneous  “S” as cited in earlier posts:  Gears. In my field of work, GE (General Electric) was a major player and was often referred to as GE’s by foreigners.   Not being derisive.  I fully ... 
Streaming Sound Quality - Want the very best sound quality? Network Acoustics ENO...
@dbb Thanks for asking.  I am not saying that, but I should explain: I tried ENO alone and then *added* EE switch and Supracat, so all three devices were in-network. I’ve not yet removed the ENO to evaluate the EE and Supra Cat alone, which is ... 
Streaming Sound Quality - Want the very best sound quality? Network Acoustics ENO...
30 days ago I added the ENO silver filter **by itself** for about a week before adding an EE 8switch and Supra Cat 8 Ethernet cable between the switch and ENO. Note: I have no ethernet wall plates so I was able to use ENO Ag without an ethernet pa...
