Another Vandersteen model 2 question
 I had the original, mid-1980s 2C - my first "real high end" gear. I am curious how the latest in the 2 series sounds. And whether the cosmetics (a matter of taste, of course) have improved.  
Usability of Oppo BDP-93 without a monitor?
@bondmanp Exactly what I wanted to know, thanks.  
Coherent Speakers from Canada
@rwanda Just discovered this thread; thanks for bringing this brand to our attention. I like the whole coaxial design principle, in general, and I'd love to hear them some day; sounds like a great match for SET amps.

@stfoth - Makes sense, thanks! 
Usability of Oppo BDP-93 without a monitor?
I do have one other question about this unit. If you choose to use an external DAC, do you lose the ability to play SACD’s or HDCD’s? In other words, I’m not clear where the circuitry to decode those formats "lives." Right now I have a Musical Fid... 
“Invest” in Tekton?
I know that I am ridiculously late to the party on this one, but for whatever it’s worth, I can’t agree more emphatically with the truth that you simply can’t know how a given speaker is going to strike your fancy until you have heard it in your r...

Ohm Walsh Micro Talls: who's actually heard 'em?
@mapman  Thanks! Things are okay... lost my dad at the beginning of April, which has been very hard. But other than that things are good. Upgraded to the Spatial M3 Turbo S and I'm really enjoying them.

@joejoe I'm not the moderator but I am the original poster of this thread. 52 pages and over 14 million views. Who would have thought?? 
SOTA Sapphire speed issue
@lewm Can you point me to an example of an outboard motor controller? 
What are some of the downsides of owning a Magneplanar .7 or 1.7i ?
 I know this is kind of an outlier comment and I don't mean to troll this thread, but let me suggest that if you're interested in hearing what the fuss over "boxless" speakers is about, you might look into an open baffle design like the Spatial M3... 
Audiophile Humor
I like the joke where one audiophile says to another, "I have this nightmare: I die and my wife sells off my stereo system for what I told her it cost."  :-D 
What kind of lamp to use with a stroboscopic disc?
@miner42 Would you be so kind as to walk me through how to use that app with a turntable? The documentation is pretty thin. Thanks!
