My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I already know what will be written...Midrange is so enchanting, so meaty , so organic. So 3D. Makes me think of the Mac 2301s... music has soul, music brings emotions... Effect of tubes coloration in the chain. Something near can be achieved with...

The new APL DSD-SR is said to be a MSB killer. The DSD-MR ( top of the line with tubes) is said to be the closest dac to analog vinyl available.

Remember guys, on a pair of 30k msrp speakers, around 35% is markup that goes to the dealer. The makers is left with around 18k, so my guess is most probably 10k is what the makers is doing in profit...the speakers should cost the makers around 8k...

My advice for 2019 is for WC’s future buyers. Bid lower than normal resale value and be patient. WC has most probably paid much less than the asking price. I realized this when I offered him my Lux 900u at much lower than what they usually pop on ...

You don’t think the Ref6 coupled to the Lux 900u would give me a good hint at what ARC is doing well with the Ref10 ?

Cavernous soundstage can be achieved without tubes. It’s the coloring and sweetness that makes them special, just as vinyl. I could also fall for it, I know it can be intoxicating. Maybe I’ll borrow and try an ARC Ref 6 from my dealer sometime in ...

WC’s latest experience with tubes is why I don’t care for them in my gear. Too much under performing possibilities. You never know when you have a partially bad one... This not my definition of ultra high end. For me , sota should be key in hand a...

If someone can improve 10 times the performance of the Dave dac with an add on filter, it is a sign that the Dave is not state of the art to begin with... or just already outdated. I will wait for the Dave 2 which will incorporate this new thing t...

Will never own Lapizator. It’s the name, just can’t take it seriously. Returning to watch my favorite movie ever, The Grinch stole Christmas.

I confirm I was not serious. I understand you have good relationships with long time close buyers and some dealers. It’s all fine. The gear is great at a great price, everybody wins. As readers, we choose to come here , and to have faith in your r...

Wasn’t really serious. Sarcasm it was, second degree. It seems it tickled you some bit somewhere though... This is a bit awkward.My car dealer has been calling me his friend since 20 years now. He sends me good wish cards on my birthday each year. 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Yes, it’s alll clear now, he is a dealer. He buys as low as it can be, resales only reputable resalable gear that is being promoted free on this thread. Genius stuff when you think about it, no marketing fees, a lot of followers as potential buyer...
