Are Quicksilver power tube amps in the same league as VAC, VTL, BAT, ARC, ...?
I love my Horn Monos.  Quicksilver doesn’t play the “review game”, so he’s not sending out amps for free in return for good press.  Instead he relies on word of mouth.  I will say this; back in the day, Quicksilver was a darling of both TAS and St... 
Full Range comparison
I love full range drivers and have at least a half a dozen in my house at any given time.  I had some markaudio designs over the years including the Alpair 10p which are nice but my favorites by far are the Omegas.  Just remember the cabinet desig... 
Good amp pairing for Zu Dirty Weekend?
Congrats on the new Amp rjpwp001 I've got some Omen DW's and a slew of amps including the Amp Camp.  It's a pretty good pairing.  It doesn't have the magic of tubes, but it's a very competent amp and great for the price.  Let us know how you like it. 
Looking for speakers for my 4W SET amp
" Would they have enough bass without a sub?"That's a totally subjective call.  What's good for one person could be totally inadequate for another.  Also room size and placement and room treatment will play a big part in this.  If you haven't alr... 
Looking for speakers for my 4W SET amp
Another vote for Omegas.  I've spent time with Heresys and if you want to "rock out" then those should be considered as well.  The Omega's have a purity that the Heresy's lack, but the Heresys will definitely play louder and do a better job of unr... 
Louis Chochos from Omega Speaker Systems
hi treynolds155,I'm a big fan of Omegas.  I've got some RS5's, and also the Alnico monitor and even have a set of Zu Omen DW's.All are nice speakers and have strengths and weaknesses.  The RS5 excels in having a speedy electrostatic like sound.  W... 
Nuforce STA200
The Sys is so cheap that I went ahead and bought a second to have both a dual mono setup and also to be able to control the balance.  It really widened and opened the soundstage up using two instead of one.I've got a Saga too, but as hard as I try... 
TAS for sale
I've got an almost full set going back from the beginning until sometime around 1993 or 1994 I think.  If anyone wants them, they are free but you have to pick all of them up. 
Budget SS integrated with great timing and immediacy up to 2k used?
You might like the Rega Brio.  I've heard a lot of ss amps in my system and that one came to mind when reading your requirements. 
Schiit not shipping
My experience with the Saga is interesting.  I first bought the little cheap passive Sys just for fun.  I put it in my system and was really really impressed.  I thought, if this Sys is so good, then the Saga must be unreal.  I picked one up and g... 
Which material sounds better for speakers construction? Wood, Ply or MDF?
ho ho ho..ebm doesn’t think his speakers ring.  This is very important!   😉 
Yanni or Laurel?
I get more of a Yanmi.  For the life of me, I can't pick out Laurel though.   
Why Aren't More Speaker Designers Building Augmented Widebanders?
I thought the exact same thing after I converted to single/wideband driver designs  I think the main reason is the ragged frequency response and the marketing issues this introduces.  Buyers and manufacturers want to be able to justify their produ... 
Omega single driver speakers
It's all going to depend on your personal preferences, the size of your room and your listening style.16x40 is a pretty big room.  Unless you sit and listen nearfield, I'm not sure that a single driver speaker is your best option.  Even though you... 
Decware and SET Low Power Tube Amps with Hi Efficency Speakers
I tried both my little Zen and Mini Torii amps on my little Harbeth P3ESR’s. While the Zen actually drove them better than the Mini Torii did, both sounded exactly like Larry described. Not something that I think anyone would want to live with. As...
