VA: Anybody in southern VA interested in an audio club?
Give me a week and I'm in. I am moving back from Mass where I spent the last 6 months. My system is basic and simple but would love to listen to others and to have your inputs on setting my room up. John 
Preamp to pair with an Adcom GFA-555 mkII
Acurus RL-11. It made a big difference with my 555-II over the Adcom GTP-450 preamp/tuner. I'm still using the RL-11 with my McCormack DNA-125.John 
Review: Revel Performa M-20 Speaker
It's been 2 years and after several other speakers in house, the Revel's remain. I would like a full range speaker but, nothing has come close to the M20's. If I had $4500 laying around, I'd jump on a pair of F50's.John

Review: B & W Loudspeakers Nautilus 805 Monitor
I too listened to these for some time but was not blown away by them. If you like these, give Revel M20's a shot. They do everything the 805's do, only better. The 805's color the mids slightly. 
Review: Marsh Sound Design A-400s Amplifier
This amp is indeed very nice and a great bargain except for one area. It needs a very good line conditioner to work properly. The difference is night and day. Try this unit with a Fisch (German). I have not heard another amp that responded so well... 
Patricia Barber "Verse" released and online
The new release "Verse" is exactly that. It sounds as if she grew tired of singing and decided to just narrarate.
