My Thoughts re: Dealers Posting on Audiogon
I like an open forum and enjoy hearing from manufacturers and dealers.If Audiotroy toned his rhetoric down a bit that would be great.The problem is his comments frequently sound confrontational.As I mentioned before, it’s not what he says as much ... 
Klipsch, high end?
Klipsch, High End?Depends which forum you're on.

Audiotroy, It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.Your tone is frequently confrontational and valid points get coated in vitriol.And BTW, there are some Subarus that can kick major ass.

In future I will not participate in threads where audiotroy is involved.It’s just too difficult to have discussions with people who know the "truth".For me, this discussion is over.Unfortunate because the OP asked a reasonable question but only re...

Pricing Dunlavy Audio Labs SC-VI speakers

Orchid vs TUBADOUR III - Help me choose
I’m interested in a review as well.Vlad, Are you considering a volume control?All my DACs/CDPs have had volume control so I do not use a pre-amp.

CEC offers a number of transports you might check out. 
What is the best BNC Digital Cable under $4,000?
So far "pro-audio", "confirmation bias" and the Mona Lisa have been mentioned in this thread. I ask you fellow ’goners, has "expectation bias" slipped through the cracks? Someone needs to cite "expectation bias" soon or it will feel left out. 
I'm having a really hard time with: "Power cable reduced my soundstage"...
