How much does power amplifier really matter comparing to other hi-fi components?
I'll preface my statement with, I don't believe in absolutes in audio, because all rooms/systems are different. That being said, I recently changed from my Jeff Rowland 625 S2 amplifier to a pair of Jeff Rowland 735 mono-amps. My dealer(Albert at ...

Jay,"That said, is this going to sway you away from moving up to Boulder? No, I'm willing to spend within my means to go to the next level. Once I hear what I consider to be "better", it's hard to ignore."Don’t be relying 100% on what you hear thr...

To Stream or not to Stream
izjjzi,". I see it's another offering where you have to buy the separate PSU." I started with the Antipodes S40. After I had the S40 I decided to purchase the S30, S60 PSU and K10 ripper. No absolutes in audio; therefore no matter one's preference...

Thinking of adding a sub---maybe not?
soix," My experience, once you have a pair of subs properly dialed in you’ll not only have better bass but also a significantly expanded soundstage such that when you turn the subs off the whole presentation collapses and you won’t wanna listen w...
