Subwoofer insight.
Probably not what you want to hear but I think you should get properly sized stereo speakers for your room. Start there. It sounds like your current speakers are not up to the scale of your room.Next, find the right location for those speaker and ... 
Prima Luna EVO series amps/preamps now available...
The only weak link in the PL preamps is the slightly-better-than-average volume attenuator.While not bad...it would be better to have a high end stepped attenuator. 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
One of the best recorded live rock/pop albums:Simple Minds, In The City of LightsIt took me forever to track this down as a new/sealed album on eBay. Worth every penny! 
Prima Luna EVO series amps/preamps now available...
Well there is an ocean of difference In sound quality between The Dialogue Premium power amp and the Evo 400.I bought the Dialogue Premium (DP) 2 weeks ago and put about 150 hours on it. Day one: It sounded good...great bass, good dynamics and lus... 
Bit the Bullet ... Don Sachs Model 2 Preamp
Yes Don Sach’s stuff is amazing. I have the preamp. Totally silent and lots of dynamics and great detail. Also had his amp for a little while too. That had lots of resolution. Had recently installed two dedicated 10ga audio lines and it was pretty... 
Power Amplifiers
I have a Carver TFM-35 circa 1993. I bought it brand new on eBay in 2008 for $500 as a sealed box while used ones were going for $450. I thought it might be fake until I opened it up and saw the Nichicon capacitors and Toshiba transistors. It has ... 
New Member And few questions on First Tube Amp.
Just got a 2nd hit of tinnitus this Christmas while waiting for my Don Sachs KT-88 to arrive...I lost low tones 300hz and down this time. First hit of tinnitus took away an 8khz notch when I was 25.  When the amp arrived, I was certainly able to h... 
LP made from a digital master recording...
Yes I suppose nothing is ever the exactly the same twice if you drill down deep enough.  BTW, I have nothing against digital...I enjoy both. But I, like a lot of people, do think vinyl is more musical (and magical).  I think the best form of digit... 
LP made from a digital master recording...
When an LP is pressed from digital...it is played back as a continuous waveform. That might be a benefit of vinyl. If you listen to a record the 2nd time, it will not be the same performance as the first. With digital it will be the same the 2nd, ... 
Doubting Sound Treatment ?
You might try tweaking speaker placement first. I've tried a lot of formulas...the best one for me was placing the speakers against the narrow wall in the room firing down the longer length of the room and placing them one fifth in from the side w... 
Bit the Bullet ... Don Sachs Model 2 Preamp
Yikes Don,That’s a really great evolution of your preamp! Almost wish I had waited. Also looks like you could mod existing preamps fairly easily to the new face. I really like the input relay addition. 
Carver TFM 35 vs TFM 35x
I was lucky enough to buy a NOS TFM-35 on eBay somewhere around 2009. Seller had posted one image of an unopened, sealed box! I am familiar with the box graphics since I bought a new TFM-15 back in 1995. Price was comparable to good used units at ...
