Horn based loudspeakers why the controversy?
johnk,Good points, and I agree. I would also take issue with kosst's comment about horn speakers having "hyperdynamics." I'm not sure that that is even possible; although it may seem so after listening to many direct radiating or panel speakers.  
Horn based loudspeakers why the controversy?
mrdecibel,I agree with that description, in particular, the word "effortlessness." I have tried to understand for years why a horn would display that characteristic, and I can only assume that as some who know a lot more about it than I do have po... 
What is the most important component in your system.
I think that for me the most important thing isn't a physical component, but the mental experience gathered over the years through experience that helps you to blend the separate parts together with some kind of skill as well as a little intuition... 
Do you think U.S. Tariffs on Aluminum and Steel will affect domestic audio manufacturing?
I suggest we all get back to discussing music and gear and leave these political discussions to other forums...before we realize how much we hate each other!Jeez, arguing about the merits of different cables is relaxing compared to this.

Call JBL and ask how much a replacement is, then figure that you'll be lucky to get half of that on resale.   
Review : Belkin CL-3 16 AWG Hybrid Conductor Technology PCOCC Speaker Cable
honda6,Always enjoy your reviews. This time, I went to ebay and bought the wire you recommended! I looked at the banana plugs, but it didn't say that they were solid copper, so I bought solid copper Nakamichi bananas. I will let you know how it go... 
Have you recently lost a close audiophile buddy? What has it taught you?
I wish that I had an audiophile friend to lose. My closest friend used to be interested in high end audio many years ago, but lost interest for a variety of reasons. Now it's just me, and I have no one to talk to about gear or music. We still go t...
