Mission 761i Speakers
Here is some information on the 760i. Although I am not sure I would pay that much attention to the specs (except maybe impedance and sensitivity). I should note that I own both the 731i and 760i. I still like the 731i a bit more (more lively, mor... 
What is best tweeter height for the Devore O/96?
Slightly late - but for anyone questioning the thought that went into the O/96 speaker design, it really is worth reading this:https://parttimeaudiophile.com/2013/05/21/manufacturers-comment-devore-fidelity-orangutan-o96-stereophile-measurement-co... 
Accuphase E470 v. Luxman L509x
Also I do agree with all that is said about the description of Accuphase vs Luxman for sound. For me personally not a very length decision on which one I would take. The Accuphase E-600 replaced a much more expensive separates combo (Shindo Giscou... 
Accuphase E470 v. Luxman L509x
One more thought to throw out is that the Accuphase presents a truly integrated option:You can add the DAC board in addition to the phono board for a true single box solution. Also the plug-in nature allows one to keep up with advances by simply u... 
Can someone explain to me why : Accupahse Equipment is that expensive ?
From my own experience the Accuphase Class A amps (e.g. E-650 and up) are a significant step-up from Pass or Luxman: Much more refined and detailed with a more natural and realistic presentation. They also measure perfect. Besides amps, where Accu... 
Thumbs up for ultrasonic record cleaning
It seems the water should be drained from the bottom where released particles would fall, pass through the filter, then be pumped back in at the top.I'm not an engineer but this doesn't look logical to me.It seems there is a lot more thought than ... 
Lyra Etna SL vs. Transfiguration Proteus + Koetsu Urushi
attymbb - thanks for the response!I have just had an opportunity to hear the MSL Gold at a local dealer. It is very impressive and certainly in the top cartridges I have heard. As you described it, it has excellent layering and separation between ... 
Audio desk pro vs. Clear audio double matrix
Since the original question is on the Clearaudio vs the Audiodesk/KL Audio, I  have owned both the Clearaudio and KL Audio for over a year and can share some experience:The latest Sonic version of the Clearaudio Double Matrix is now fully automate... 
Audio desk pro vs. Clear audio double matrix
Ive had both the KL Audio and the Audio Deske, both are fine machines, the only thing I did not like about the Audio Deske is the "exit mark" the rollers leave where a tiny amount of "dirt" is left behind. The KL Audio does not suffer from this an... 
Lyra Etna SL vs. Transfiguration Proteus + Koetsu Urushi
My other cartridge, the MSL Ultra Eminent Bc is at Soundsmith as I accidentally bent the canitilever and the Transfiguration Proteus I recently purchased is back at the dealer's pending replacement due to a factory defect.   In the meantime, I hav... 
Luxman L590AXii vs Accuphase E-650 for a Shindo lover
Greg - interesting comment on Luxman 590 vs Accuphase E600. I recently heard a Luxman L-509X with a pair of Harbeth 30.2 at the Montreal Show which compared to my own experience with the Accuphase E-600 and Graham LS 5/9s fell quite a bit short of... 
Am I dreaming?
Another vote for the Accuphase E-600 and E-650. The E-470 is also excellent if you require more power (although the E-600/650 can handle most speakers). The AD-30 phono stage is excellent, I would expect the new AD-50 to be even better; easily at ... 
Luxman L590AXii vs Accuphase E-650 for a Shindo lover
The Shindo Giscours and Haut Brion were a very impressive match to the O/96 - for a tube combo the bass was extremely tight and fast. The Accuphase E-600 matches that performance, maybe even a bit tighter and quicker than the Shindo. The Shindo wa... 
Luxman L590AXii vs Accuphase E-650 for a Shindo lover
I am running a pair of Devore O/96 with an Accuphase E-600 integrated; I moved to the E-600 after downsizing from a Shindo Giscours/Haut Brion & Cortese combo. The addition of a C-37 phono brought the E-600 very close to the sound of the Shind... 
Graham ls5/9 vs Harbeth M30.1
But is is right compare It with 30.1??Or is better compare with shl5+ ??The following review has a comparison of Harbeth 7ES3 to the Grahams:Graham LS5/9 review While I did not hear the Graham side by side to Harbeths I think the review does an ac...
