Horning owners what amps have you used?
Charles, In my room I have no bass issues. The bass is fast, articulate, detailed, and is perfectly balanced with the mids and treble. The clarity of the notes and the performers technical intent are excellent. I read that Hornings perform better ... 
Horning owners what amps have you used?
I have the new Horning Eufrodite Ellipse mated with the Frankenstein 300b mk.2 amps and the pairing is fantastic. The Frank's drive the speakers with no problem in my pretty large room. I also have a Pass Labs XA 30.8 amp which sounds nice but, th...

Pete’s power cords are excellent. They have great tone and, also have detail and dynamics.The price is very fair for the performance that you get and Pete is a pleasure to deal with! 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Hi Pani,I had a FW J2 amp as my back-up amp. I use Frankenstein Mk.2 300b's as my main amp. The J2 is a very good amp, detailed, very open, fast, great bass, but the Franks are more liquid and sound more natural in tone and timbre. The J2 had a sl... 
Anyone heard Ubiq Model One?
Goes to show you how much opinions vary. I thought they were dynamic and extended and airy on top. Really nice speaker, if they would have worked with my 300b amps they would be high on list, IMHO.

Pete's cables are well made and sound great. They have plenty of detail, but also have really nice tone. His prices are very fair and compare nicely to the big boys.Pete's also a great guy and a pleasure to deal with.Joe   
Teresonic Ingenium Silver loudspeakers
Sorry, I forgot to mention they were the Teresonic Ingeniums with the DX4 silver drivers.

Hi mdeblanc,Yes, I heard them at the NY Audio Show. Beautiful built and sounding speakers. Very fast with great tone and surprising low bass output. The only thing that bothered me was the sound was stuck to the speakers.  Could have been a room i... 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Hi Charles,Now that you have more hours of listening, did changing the resistor degrade the sound in any way using the EML XLS's, Taks, or Elrog's?Best,Joe

Trrevell,I have the same setup as Early, Druid V and Undertone sub and the pairing is really nice! I will be putting them up on Audiogon soon, if anybody is interested let me know. I am most likely upgrading to Horning Eufrodite Ellipse which are ... 
Synergistic Red Fuse ...
Wow, makes a bigger difference then the caps!I'll have to order some, thanks.Sorry for going off topic but, did you change the resistors in your amps to run less voltage and if so did it change the sound?Best,Joe  
Synergistic Red Fuse ...
Hi Charles,What size Red fuses did you use for the Franks?Joe 
Warm sounding power cord for for CD player to suppress digital glare on vocals.
A Sablon Audio Robusto PC will definitely do the trick. It's an older cord that you can pick up for little money. It's not as detailed and open as newer cords but the tone is beautiful. 
VPI Cartridge People: What next?
I have a VPI Classic 3 with a 3D arm. I used to run a Dyna xx2 mk.2 which was a nice balanced cartridge.Then I switched to a Lyra Kleos Sl and the Kleos is so much better in all areas. Faster, more dynamic, more open, bigger soundstage, with nice ...
