What are the weak points of Pass amps and pre-amps ?
I had a 350.8 so I'll address the heat issue. I found it surprisingly warm to the touch. But it did not heat the room.I would have loved to have kept it but it was just too large for my small apartment.As it is so small I am very sensitive to heat... 
Vandersteen 7 mark ll or big Kef blades
I've heard the Kef and it's a great speaker. Wonderful really. But if you have the money go with the Vandersteen 7. It's one of those if only I were a lottery winner speakers.Pure magic.

I have to add Doc that your persistence that long ago took a bounding leap crossing the line into obnoxiousness which in no way causes you to be chastened or embarrassed by unending criticism is in a very perverse way impressive. 
What’s wrong with Diana Krall?
'Few classical music lovers would think jazz bad taste , many are jazz fans themselves .Most I know think of rock as bad to horrible taste . They don't hate people who love rock, they pity them .' I think you're talking about an elderly generation... 
Classical Music for Aficionados
My favorite comment about classical music comes from Horowitz. When asked what he thought of Beethoven he replied,'I prefer Lehar.'

To Larry,I certainly understand the confusion. But sometimes it is not too difficult to figure out. Just cut and paste the abbreviation, put it in your search engine and see what this refers to in terms of audio. Sometimes these numbers refer to s... 
What responsibility does a seller have to tell a customer an item has been serviced?

What responsibility does a seller have to tell a customer an item has been serviced?
Steve gosh no. He has an excellent approval rating with many encomiums which is why I did business with him in the first place. But not everything goes to one's liking. 
What responsibility does a seller have to tell a customer an item has been serviced?
lou, thank you for your interest but evidently it's not a popular component and I was able to get a little bit of value out of it as a trade in with another dealer. I hope he can sell it or has sold it and make a worthwhile profit on it. But he's ... 
What responsibility does a seller have to tell a customer an item has been serviced?
Yes I admit he did offer to take it back if I insisted. But I agree everything he did on his part of the deal was fair which is why I didn't insist. And audiogon has a no return policy. This is just a post finding out how people feel about the iss...

ARC Ref 75 SE issues?
Well I'm closer and am very sensitive to all kinds of sounds so the whirring of the fans even at a low level when listening to classical when the music becomes very quiet or even silent might distract me.Thanks very much.
