Bookshelf Speakers for Large Room
I heard the Borresen 1 stand mounted at RMAF last year in a few rooms and was impressed with what two little boxes could do. But the last room I saw them in was a very large room and I heard the coming up the hall and was shocked when I saw that a... 
Is being an audiophile a disease?
Interesting video, I liked the Pioneer and Zenith commercials that followed. But the initial video does make me realize that sometimes the obsession can be a little over the top. But hey if you enjoy...then enjoy to the fullest.

We are here for ya, j-wall. At my age I have come to realize GF’s just don’t get happiness. Especially their own🤔 
Focal Kanta No 2
J-wall, let us know how you like them. I heard them the year they were introduced at RMAF then the 3’s. I really wanted the Sopra 2’s and was ready to buy when they bumped them $4K and I need center and rears so about $6k for the package, and back...

McIntosh, your experience?
I have owned many Mc amps as well as Pre-amps, Processors and one DVD player. I still keep two amps in my system one MC402 and MC205 for 2 channel and 5 channel respectively. I would suggest you do a little research on which model will meet your n... 
Chord Qutest DAC
Lowrider57: Thank You for your response I think the problem I’ve got with this, is that the 44.1 Indicator is the lowest indication of rate that the Cutest shows. I stream DEEZER at Flac and the Bluesound does indicate HD which tells me I’m gettin... 
Chord Qutest DAC
Pathos2, welcome and congrats on the Cutest. I have had mine for about a year now and leave it on all the time with no issues. Also contrary to the instructions, I found if you unplug it for any length of time, it re-boots back to its default sett... 
RMAF 2020 is Cancelled
As one who has attended every RMAF since year one, I am saddened by the loss of this annual event. Just when they finally moved it to a better venue, sans the miles and miles of walking on bad news.

About to audition Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Grand Reference - advice?
JM, I am in Colorado so a bit far to go demo. I will say that the VA and Aerials both are much better looking and I do prefer wood over paint. I hope the VA dealer gets his sold so he can bring in the Reference, I have given up on the Aerial deale... 
About to audition Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Grand Reference - advice?
Thank you for responding. I have considered the previous VA Beethoven's and found them just a little lacking in emotion on higher volume. I really like the sound at lower volume but some music cannot be played at lower volume, probably why Muzak d...

Linn LP12 vs VPI prime / classic / signature
I have not owned both, but when I decided to sell my LP12, I considered the Classic III. I was fortunate enough to happen upon a dealer that had one on display with he same cartridge as I had. Also they had McIntosh Pre and amplifier hooked up. I ...
