Pre-amp Suggestions for Tubes & Electrostats
Jtinn & Tireguy; Thanks, I hadn’t thought about that possible solution. Someone mentioned in another thread that Audio Aero is coming out with a CD/SACD/DVD-A player called the Prestige. Will the Prestige have the same 24/192 redbook capabilit... 
Far East: Audio auctions & classifieds in the Far East
I too would be interested in such information, even in the region's languages (particularly Japanese), and hope someone can come up with something! 
Amp recommendations to drive Martin Logan Prodigy?
I envy your dilemma. The nominal impedance is probably not an issue for most "big tubes", it's the drop to 1 ohm at the high frequencies which potentially causes problems. I greatly enjoyed the Innersound - very, very fast "clean-sounding" power -... 
High power tube integrated?
Brml, ON TOPIC though just my 2cts worth... I agree w/ Celtic66 on consistency across VTL line. I liked the IT-85 but felt it could use more power (disclaimer: I now have VTL 450s and like them). With your reasonably sensitive speakers, the IT-85 ... 
Happy New Year to AudiogoN and AudiogoN Users
Happy New Year to All. May we all strive to bring happiness, peace, health, and prosperity to whom we are able. And though I remain mostly silent, thanks to all for an excellent community. I learn a great deal (and hope to someday help someone els... 
What time do you wear?
Tireguy, I wear an Ikepod (gift from wife on son's birth) when I'm not wearing a cheap swatch. I love my Hemipode tho there's lots of sentimentality in that. If you find one used, a key to checking out how much it has been used/worn is sniff the w... 
Switchable Tetrode - Triode please explain
I find myself about to write what Piezo described so I ditto his excellent description... I also find triode (I use VTL 450s) to be lush, exuding a luxuriant 'thereness' and beautiful instrument separation - particularly notable in massed strings,... 
best amp for Martin logan sl-3
Shemply613, one year (and one week) later... how do you find the Innersound amp with your SL3s? 
Where R U?????
I live in Tokyo, Japan, a small metropolitan area of 30 million or so. Lots of 'cookie-cutter' high end stores but few good ones... what's worse, despite the 3rd recession in a decade and a financial system on the verge of collapse, many US makers... 
Seek suggestions for mid-classic organ & orchestra
For plaster-cracking, window-rattling, shake-the-fleas-off-the-dog ORGAN music, I cannot think of anything better than Max Reger's 'Introduction, Passacaglia, and Fugue' - perfect for subwoofer-testing and a great example of early 20th century org... 
Who R U?
Today I ran across this thread and spent 2hrs learning more about many of you whose opinions I have come to respect over the past few months, and decided to toss in my 2cts.I'm 33, American, married to a French woman who has been the light of my l... 
Spkr Cable for Martin Logan SL3s
Thanks to all for their input so far (but do not hesitate to keep it coming). Bi-wiring seems to be the general consensus. Will demo some Wireworld Equinox/BW cable this weekend and report back...Cberry - Thanks but I'm a bit far from LA...Slightl...
