Ditching Class A Amps due to Heat - Sort of a Poll
If a lot of people prefer the “class a” sound but would be happy not to have the heat or electric bill, maybe there is a market for a class d amp voiced with 2nd and 3rd harmonics to sound like “class a”??  
Ditching Class A Amps due to Heat - Sort of a Poll
There may be two ways to think about this… you love your speakers so stick with the amp that brings out their best… or….   You are committed to class d so you find the speakers that brings out their best. Either way you are trying to optimize t...

Also, weight puts a damper on resale options as the cost of shipping continues to climb.

Moonwatcher….I would note that your room is not really an issue for open baffles as long as you can have them 3-4’ out from the wall and as long as you match the woofer size/bass output to the room.

I’ve read some things in this thread that don’t jibe with my experience. I’ve had great box speakers that didn’t sound boxy. I now have Spatial Audio M3 Sapphires that are not forward and not harsh. I’ve driven them with a class d 2Cherry, an Orch...

I often think that at the shows, what we think is "overly bright" is in fact "overly loud" for the room/treatments...and compared to how we will position and listen at home.  
New MOFI speaker (Andrew Jones)
It does appear from all the people posting over on SHF that the AJ Mofi's sounded really good at CAF....and no one thought they were too bright.

The suggestion to just throw away the box is somewhat simplistic in that the bass and midbass will sound weak. The better sounding open baffle speakers don’t have this issue because the designer selected drivers to compensate and produce a balance...

I own the Spatial Audio M3 Sapphires....so count me as an OB fan. AC has a whole section devoted to OB not specifically sponsored by any manufacturer...here is a link for some light reading. My general overall comment about OB sound is most of th...

There is no doubt that AJ gets praise every time he drops something new on the market.  When I heard Steve say in his wrap up...."a little on the bright side" and smaller scale presentation compared to his PAP speakers...I thought, not going to wo... 
What should be mandatory in every professional published review-
Not Mandatory....but....some things I would like to see because they would be helpful to potential buyers: 1.  Take your own photos...top, bottom and back...and obviously the front and if it is speakers, grill on and grill off...why the bottom......

Justin, I’ve been to your place in Salt Lake, maybe five years ago… you may have even been there that day, I don’t remember.  Your dad is a good guy and I wish nothing but the best for your family. Thanks for coming on this thread and clarifying t... 
Why do so many sellers take offense to offers on their listings?
I had a boss who once told me that prior to setting a product price he would contract so market research, look at the competition and then finally ask the customers what they were willing to pay.    There is plenty of info available to allow the ...

The unfortunate thing is that are a lot of audio manufacturers in the US that are small companies without a lot of depth. Those that have a back up plan rarely put it out there to assuage concern…and not too many of them have authorized repair cen...
