Who has listened to Sonus Faber "Cremona Auditor"
i had a chance to hear the sonus cermona auditors at a local hi-fi store. i had seen postings mentioning that these speakers are better for rock or home theater than the earlier sonus faber models, which people generally like to say excel for clas... 
EMM Labs DAC6 vs. latest version dCS
i agree with tbg's comment that the dcs gear sounds better with a preamp rather than going direct into the amp. i think i lose some detail and transparency with a preamp in the chain, but the dcs already offers so much that to my ears it's worth t... 
Tubes with Thiel CS-3.6's? has anyone had success?
i have thiel 3.6. i used them with a krell 200c (now up for sale on audiogon) until about a year ago, when i moved to a bat 75se (75 watts per channel).i chose the bat partly because it's one of the few tube amps that can easily go to low impedenc... 
Your experience with Thiel 3.6
To follow up on Jcatral14's post about room size and the Thiel 3.6s, what have people experienced in moving their Thiels closer or further away from the side and back walls?I've found that the soundstage is deeper the further out the speakers are ... 
DCS Verdi Elgar Purcell VS. Audio Aero Capitole
hi germanboxers, you write:"If you "turn off" a digital filter ... then you certainly will change the sound and if it was designed to be used with both sets of filters, it'll likely sound worse."(as clarification, the dcs system is made up of thre... 
DCS Verdi Elgar Purcell VS. Audio Aero Capitole
You say, "Forget about 96 or 192 and pick the best sounding component." Yet your post dismiss the dCS units because of "theory" rather than listening.Moreover, you reduce the dCS to just upsampling (and dismiss it for that alone) while excusing th... 
Best blues guitarist, Clapton or Green
I see a lot of names tossed out here, but I wonder what standards people are using to pick their favorites. The biggest factor will always probably be "goosebumps" -- or who *moves* you the most?Maybe we can fine-tune (or broaden) the question wit... 
A tubes vs. Solid State question.
Nrchy - I think that people just like to categorize and rank things it's not easy to. What are the three best Beatles songs? Who's better, the Who or Zeppelin? What was the best movie from Jan 2001 to Jan 2002? It's all good, I say, just different... 
Are we music lovers or gear lovers?
I've seen people ask why people who love music don't get more excited about equipment! Here are my thoughts on why I don't post about music on this board:1. I've always thought of this forum as one for audio gear more than music and treated it as ... 
BMG CD's ARE worse
Good grief. I give up on this board. 
BMG CD's ARE worse
An example: The Heart Greatest Hits CD is remastered but the single album CDs are not. The sound on Greatest Hits is better.I mentioned in my post that there are two newer compilation CDs of Rush material than Chronicles, released around the time ... 
Rules on Review...
Reviews are a way for us to share our discoveries. When a friend stops by, you put on your favorite new CDs and talk about how excited you are about the album. You don't say, here's some stuff that I want to show you is bad; let's spend our time t... 
Improving reviews
Nrchy, what do you think is a *reasonable* expectation regarding the quality of reviews on a Web site like this one? 
BMG CD's ARE worse
cdc, Your BMG version is a different version than the store-bought version. But it's not different or inferior because it's a BMG edition. It's different because the CD title "Chronicles" has earlier mastering of the material than the current CD o...
