Tannoy Everyone?! with Leben CS600 or Pass XA25/30.5?
I have Turnberry GRs. I do hear Luxman, Sugden, Accuphase pair very well with Tannoy. My Primaluna Evo400 has great synergy with my Turnberrys...very lush and dynamic sounding combo for sure. I was looking to replace the Primaluna with Luxman bef... 
The best way to start adding A=analog to my system
I suggest Technics 1200GR/G is a good place to start. Technics is often overlooked but I think you will spend almost double the $4k cost to even start to take the 1200G down. The 1200GR is said to be 85% the sonic qualities of the G. And this is o... 
I want to move from Rega Planar 6 help me to pick a new turntable
On VTA adjustment. This is a bigger deal than some might think. Especially with the better MC cartridges. While using the AT33ptgII, I was a little underwhelmed with its performance. I finally took the time to measure VTA and discovered the tonear... 
I want to move from Rega Planar 6 help me to pick a new turntable
It is said that, out of the box, the 1200GR is 85% of the sound quality of the 1200G. As a 1200G owner, I can say that it is my last turntable. Out of all the tables you mentioned, I would say get the 1200GR. It is not apparent until tou take poss...

Speakers for string Quartets
I like big Tannoys for acoustic instruments. They will play anything well but brass and strings and voice sound really good with my Tannoys.   
Interesting comment on Bose Speakers.....
My wife and I get an AirBNB in Carmel every year...same place. It has a humble Bose stereo with a collection of CDs to choose from. Very charming. Obviously no consideration for acoustics in the octagonal living room the stereo resides in. But t...

Western Electric looking for consumer feedback to make new tubes!
They should make horn speakers too. There is a business synergy there.    
Best double live vinyl?
How about one that includes arguably one of the best rock/jazz drum solos of all time? I think it’s one of the best recorded solos as well. Journey Captured. As a kid I was all about Neil Peart until I heard this solo. Have been a Steve Smith fa...

That list is missing some schiit.    
Will I benefit from a subwoofer with 20Hz speakers?
Looks like the website says frequency goes down to 20hz. Where did the 41hz number come from?  
Eric Clapton reveals this week of his declining health
I was a friend of Duane Allman’s daughter. Very nice person. For some time she had been trying to get Mr. Clapton to recognize Duane Allman’s contribution to Layla and honor his family by sharing royalties. He never returned her calls. So I turn ... 
Sound Better w/Amp Directly Into Wall Then Thru Zero Surge
I have everything plugged into a Furman...except the amp. It goes directly into the dedicated line socket on the wall. I'm using 10 gauge romex...so it should be a quick death.
