|SunfireTG3- Para HaloC2 or Krell Showcase ?|
I've auditioned the Parasound C2 in my system for a good period and I'm really impressed with the sound; like you my emphasis is on music over HT. Haven't heard the Sunfire; listened to the Showcase at dealer and it was impressive, but not as warm...
|Most "Non-Digital" Sounding CDP|
Consider the Cary 308-T!
|I need suggestions for a minisystem.|
I second the vote for the Denon; IMO for the money, the combo. with the little Mission speakers is very hard to beat. I have purchased the DM-30's for kids and inlaws--gets them a taste of what "high-end" can mean, in contrast to the "boom box" so...
|New Cary 308-T|
I've just had my 308-T for about a week, with almost 24-7 use to help it settle in. I quickly replaced the stock tubes with Mullard long plate 12au7's (I was able to buy 3 pairs here some time ago), and I am very impressed so far. I previously own...
|Sonus Faber EA II being replaced?|
I just purchased a new/demo pair (and am pleased), and yes, I was told that the new Cremona Auditor is in essence a replacement for the EA II's. From what I was told, the auditor, at least from "looks" standpoint, doesn't have quite the fit and fi...
|Is e-mail system working?|
Thanks, guys, I now have a response from one seller, so sytem seems to be working.
|Is e-mail system working?|
Good, hopefully it's not something with my e-mail delivery. I'll be patient, its just that with one particular seller I e-mailed a couple of weeks ago (with no response) and have tried again regarding a new listing.
|2 Channel pre-amp...where to start...|
I'm in the same situation; other preamps with HT pass thru and remote include BAT VK-30, Sonic Frontiers and Audio Research. I also want my preamp to have a 12v trigger to pwr up my amp--the newer Audio Research pre's have this (BAT and Sonic Fron...
I have the Trinity 200, driving Wilson-Benesch Act Ones. I love the incredible tight control of the bottom end, black background and yet the "magic" of the tubes for the midrange. I highly recommend you give Llano a try.
|JM Lab Mini Utopia with Utopia sub?|
I've spent a great deal of time auditioning (and lusting over) the Mini Utopia's at a dealer/friends. Excellent speaker; maybe not completely neutral, but very musical and dynamic. I would not go with JM Lab sub--try a REL Storm II--unbelievably m...
The Theta DaViD and DaViD II output true 96/24 digital signals.
|Sony 9000 ES SACD output stage cold|
Well, I probably have only 175-200 hours on the SACD side of my 9000ES, but right out of the box it was warmer, smoother than redbook cd's thru my PT P1A/P3A (with Dan Wright mods). Have Llano Design Trinity 200 hybrid amp, and have used both my S...
|Rel Storm and Rel Strata III|
I had the Stata II and upgraded to the Stata III. The Strata III is about as poweful as the orig. Storm, but I still don't think it loads a room quite as good as the orig. Storm. The great thing about the Strata III, compared to the orig. Storm, i...
Toni Braxton. Try any of her 3 cd's, but the 2nd is great, with the latest (the Heat) a close second.
|Wilson Benesch Speakers (Worth it?)|
I have the Act Ones (for about 1 year now) and I'm really pleased. They are expensive; I think the MSRP includes the R&D costs (that carbon fiber technology and the sculpted backs!). I find the Act Ones extremely coherent, and very musical. I ...
