For those of us over 60..
In my 40s, but since others who didn't yet hit 60 offered great suggestions, I'll throw a few who embody my generation...Beastie Boys, The Cure, De La Soul, Gang Starr, Guns N Roses, Metallica, Nirvana, NWA, Liz Phair, The Roots, Run DMC, The Smit... 
Best turntable under $2000
@neo_the_one "I currently have a Rega P2. The sound is good but I don't get a very good separation of vocals and instruments and also the detailing is not as resolving as I would like it to be."While I liked the VPI Classic enough to buy one, in y... 
need opinions on cdp with built in volume control up to $2000
I agree with you completely on CD players with volume controls, anda also use a couple, including a Consonance Reference 2.0 SACD player. I’ve not heard the RA Opus 21, but the CD55 was a good one. I’ve also considered the EAR Acute, but the long ... 
DIY ?uestion
Thank you, Duke. Your experience with TL seems to mirror what I’ve read from most people apart from Bud.Nothing proprietary at this point, most people don’t even remember who Bud Fried was. Anyway, I saw (Salk?) has been trying to resurrect the Fr... 
Siegfried Linkwitz Passes
@royj, thank you for initiating this thread.A giant in the industry, whose value and gifts to it could never be overstated.  Hope his family can find comfort in this moment.  May he rest in peace 
DIY ?uestion
@sound22card, I sent you a PM so I can forward you the Fried D subwoofer plans.  This TL cabinet is 36H X 15.75X X 15D, and used an 8" driver.  Personally, I find it a much bigger step back from my O subs with their 10" driver than I or most would... 
High order crossovers
@audiokinesis "So it is not obvious to me that series resistance reduces the voltage ratios that a driver sees, and therefore I do not see how it would reduce the dynamic contrast. The volume level being reduced is not the same thing as the dynami... 
David Lewis Audio--any customer experiences?
@roxy54 "The man himself is an unusual guy"That’s about as accurate a statement as you will ever see here on Audiogon. By the way, even though the name of the business is David Lewis Audio, the owner’s name is David / Dave Serota...I personally ha... 
DIY ?uestion
@roberjerman "Take a look at some of the old IMF’s (U.K.) and how they built their trans lines. TSL - 80’s. I’d just copy them!That’s excellent advice. Bud (Irving M Fried / IMF) was a mentor of mine, and one of the most interesting and unique peo... 
Solid State vs. Tubes - What if Transistors came first?
@newbee "Sort of funny, I think. For most of us transistors did come first! Then there was the tube 'Renaissance'. Wonder why anyone was interested if transistors were so good? :-)"Such an EXCELLENT point!I grew up with transistor audio, and fe... 
The High End for Under a Grand?
Thank you for initiating the thread...Although I think the system he put forth doesn’t exactly meet the mark on several levels, I find the spike in HEA pricing over the past 5 years especially ridiculous. There’s a paucity of actual improvement in... 
Burt Reynolds has passed away
@mofimadness, "My first sports car that I ever owned was the Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am edition. T-Tops, killer paint job and a ROCKIN' stereo!"My first car was a 75 Chevy Monza my high school job boss gave me for free that was an absolute b... 
High order crossovers
@audiokinesis, "@trelja, can you tell me what the actual mechanisms are by which crossover parts count and/or conventional crossover topologies constrain dynamics? There may be effects I’m unaware of that are worth taking into account, even if the... 
Burt Reynolds has passed away
As a kid in the late 70s, watching a guy with that much presence, getting the girls and cars and fun he did, he was everything we aspired to grow up to be.Rest in peace, Burt 
High order crossovers
@audiokinesis, "Sorry but I must disagree that there is a correlation between parts count and how difficult a speaker is to drive."I don’t see myself at RMAF this year, but share your warm sentiments, Duke. It’s been too long since we’ve gotten to...
