Audiophile Vacations
I am unfamiliar with the Borreson brand. For Basis, I am aware only of the Basis dealers I have dealt with. Those are American Sound of Canada, also called Angie's Audio Corner, located in a Toronto suburb and Goodwin's High End located in Wa... 
Looking for my Final Pair!!
oldhvymec2: Everests! From a friend in the business who has real good ears and has listened to many extraordinary speakers, loves the Everests. Oakland Hills! Montclair per chance? Just phenomenally gorgeous. Nice that you live by that area.

Ciao Rhino. The question about the Kef 107 Kube is timely as I just wrote the following for an ad I'm in the process of creating. Hope this helps. ----------------------------------------The Kube's Preset Function----------------------------------... 
The very best sound: Direct to Disc
Interesting about Amanda McBroom who's been mentioned frequently in this thread. I was surprised to see she had a role in an old Mash episode I saw on TV some time ago. A most talented person.

No idea what a Skizmo is but that is a catchy name. I have an owner's manual. Don't have a schematic nor a service manual.  
Basis Audio Super Platter
Jwm: That appears to be a fantastic room you have for audio! The best place to answer your question per the Super Platter on a Debut is direct to Basis Audio. Following up on tomic601's post about a west coast contact, for those near the east coas...

Hello Rvlardon. I have some brief info about the Super Platter. I received the following details about the Super Platter from AJ shortly before his passing. Also, I've talked to a couple of people who own the Transcendence and they are in bliss. S... 
A.J. Conti of Basis Audio has passed away.
Hello Jeff. I agree A.J. will be missed and he will be missed on multiple levels bigtime. I liked your mention of precise knowledge as precise and precision indeed and in part defined him and the wonderful turntables and tonearms he produced. Per... 
Your most disappointing purchase or audition?
Howdy Roxy54. I've addressed the "when he bought it comment previously", funny though how things have disappeared. Per a request I'm waiting for someone to reply to my challenge to come up with "my ulterior motives" that make more sense than the f... 
Your most disappointing purchase or audition?
Per Atmasphere components. Posting in a public forum personal correspondence demonstrates Ralph's lack of integrity. Regardless, the time to be proactive was when I owned the gear, not now after the fact. I've previously addressed satisfactorily t... 
Your most disappointing purchase or audition?
Howdy Audiolabyrinth, thank you kindly for your comments. Per your comparison. Amps & preamps are quite diff from cars. Cars rarely are tested after they've been produced: big production numbers with limited testing results in some lemons. Amp... 
Music loving friend needs help -- thanks
Thank you to all who responded. Czarivey: Regarding your Iphone mention. Do you mean there's a simple way for an Iphone to use voice commands to control a music server? Or do you refer to something else? If controlling servers, is this plug'n'pay ... 
Your most disappointing purchase or audition?
Re. Atma-sphere. Charles, your posts are well thought out and valued. My matched monoblocks differed drastically from each other internally and had numerous problems including emitting profuse amounts of smoke and there were numerous problems with... 
What are these vintage speakers?
Al, you are 100% correct. Thanks for taking the time to find the answer. My 1st guess was Altec's. I found photos of Valencia¬ís which were similar though had visual differences from the speakers in the photo. I would never have thought to add Heat...
