Focal Sopra No 3 vs Goldenear Triton One.R
Must have been a typo of the Sopra's sold in a few hours.  The search continues.  Triton one.r with tube amp for 5k or ?  The Focal 1038be are about $5200 in addition to whatever amp I would need.      
Focal Sopra No 3 vs Goldenear Triton One.R
Can't find any preowned.  Looking for the best deal on preowned speakers.    
What amp for Goldenear Reference speakers?
Great info.  This is absolutely not a critical listening setup.  Big room, not great acoustics and usually listen from a BlueNode and occasionally things streamed from the internet (Brain Damage Pink Floyd podcast).  I have an older Marantz MK11 t... 
Legacy Focus XD - will I ever upgrade?
I’m shopping for speakers and the Legacy line, especially the XD, has caught my eye.  If you ever think of selling let me know.    
All in 5-6k for setup in living room...with bad acoustics
I'm thinking either something from Legacy Audio, Goldenear Reference or the Seaton Cat 12s.   I need lots of bass, high volume and a silky smooth sound.  Can't go the compression driver route....they hurt my ears. Lots of B&W options but n... 
GoldenEar Triton Reference for a large room...
If I could find a pair of preowned Reference I would buy them.  Not interested in paying the full 11k retail price.    
All in 5-6k for setup in living room...with bad acoustics
I would absolutely love to treat the room but it's our main living area and it's form first followed by function.  Wife decorates the room (house) and then I try to put reasonable stereo system in the room so we/I can enjoy music occasionally.  If... 
All in 5-6k for setup in living room...with bad acoustics
Definitely not a new system!  I'd go for the preowned gems found in the classified section here.   Interest rates are up, stock market down and cash is king.  Not that 5-6k is much but I'm sure with some patience I can score a pair of nice speake... 
Next step in upgrading my home theater system??
Forgot to add something. Since I am thinking ahead, what speakers should I consider, say in the $2000 range? I'm partial to B&W but for no reason and would be very open to listening to other brands that would suit my HT setup better. Any feedb... 
Next step in upgrading my home theater system??
Wow, that you for your advice. Trying to pick up on all of the basics is a bit challenging as every thread or magazine or website I can find the discussion begins with so much already being understood. I do realize at some point it gets crazy with... 
Next step in upgrading my home theater system??
I am trying to decide between the Emotiva xpa5 or the Rotel 1095. The xpa is slightly less $$ but that is not the deciding factor. Any last comments or recommendations on either amp before I flip a coin???John 
Next step in upgrading my home theater system??
It's in a large finished basement, carpeted floors, drywall on all walls and about an 8' drop ceiling. Leather couch x2 and loveseat are about 12-14' from the speakers/screen. From screen/front speakers to rear wall is 40' and I can't partition th... 
Next step in upgrading my home theater system??
I'm not sure my current speakers could handle 200W/ch. Also, is there really a difference in sound, etc., in these amps? So now I am considering Rotel, Parasound and now Emotiva? Is there a clear winner when comparing these 3 amps and companies? T... 
Next step in upgrading my home theater system??
Thanks for the advice. The room is in a huge finished basement so I am sure the acoustics are compromised. I sit about 12-14' back from the screen and the ceilings are barely 8' high. The only reason I mentioned Rotel is there seems to be a fair a...
