|A challenge: Reference system from 15yrs ago|
I once had....Snell Type A,Perreaux SM3 pre amp, Audio Research D-60 amp, fronted by a mid 80s Linn Lp12,Ittok,Black Koetsu....sounded great...Really miss the Snells, would like to get another pair someday.
|Best rock song of all times|
Missippi Queen.......Mountain, saw them twice with Felix Papalardi, great band in concert.
|best rock voices|
so true, Sammy Hagar, great rock singer.
|What is the best amp for Sonus Faber Cremonas?|
I agree with the 1st response, try a different pre amp. I would go SS and yes try a Mcintosh, I have owned both the c2200 and the c46 at the same time, thru my Mac 252, I prefer the c46. to me it had more guts without being bright and had more def...
|Linn Kolector or Wokonda preamp?|
I have owned both and had them at the same time, I felt the Wakonda was better and noticeably so, sometimes a quick demo in the store doesn't show everything, I still have the Wakonda, use it with a Linnlk100, for the money a nice sounding duo.
|A mistake spending too much on amplification?|
I agree with theabove about preamps, very important as it comes before the amp, also the source comes before the preamp, so it too is important. One of my systems is a vtl2.5 pre/Mac Mc 2751v into a pair of bookshelf B&W cm2(900/pr) fronted by...
|Can I expect to pay full retail for a new system?|
On the subject of discounting and retail stores telling customers that the manufacturer won let them discount...is 100 percent illegal....and furthermore no manufacturer can terrminate a dealer for discounting.
|Are the Klipschorns mainly for Classical music ??|
I have owned K horns for the last 12 yrs...I play about 5% classical the rest is rock, jazz, female vocals,pop,funk etc. I like them alot, have used them and still do with Mac c46/252 and some VTL gear as well as some nicely restored Dynaco St70s
|Inexpensive amp for a McIntosh C46 Preamp|
Good suggestions above to be sure but here is one for you, I own the C46 with a 252 and its a great combo but I have a few systems, a great amp for the money is the Linn lk 100 I have one and have used it with the c46 with fine results, a nifty,sm...
|Best speakers circa 77-79'|
My vote would be the Snell Type A
|certin speaker makers harder to get dissounts fro|
No Manufacturer can tell a dealer what to sell the product for ...period...if they do they are breaking the law, in fact I do believe it was the hifi bus that made this so, I think both B&0 and Pioneer were charged with this in the 70s....anyw...
|Naim Audio - Threat or menace?|
a follow up, if your considering diving into naim, I would suggest the following, either the 5i or go right to a 202/150.....to get the most out of the series 5 gear, you would get all the boxes, 112/150 and a flatcap, nice, but going to the 202 i...
|Naim Audio - Threat or menace?|
I have had a fair amount of Naim gear over the years and it definately has a sound, I moved and sold most of it and now am timkering with a 5i and their 112/150 preamp and amp. after 30 plus yrs of listening to different equipment I find myself dr...
|does Queen have better sound quality CD?|
I agree with above post about Queen 2 it is a masterpiece...full of incredible imagination and playing....side black alone is a stunner...you can probably find their crown jewel box set in a used record store...long Live Freddie Mercury... I saw Q...
