New Western Electric 91E 300B Tube Integrated Amp REVIEW !
The classic Dennis Had-designed Cary 300B SETs, from back in the day, were capable of 9, 10, 11 watts; the one I owned drove my ProAc Response 2.5s to volumes I would never listen at.  So the JA measurements of output of the WE did give me some pa... 
Just how many options does 1 need in a 2 way bookshelf design?
Graham LS5/8.  It may not look it, but that's a 12" woofer.   And now something old that's new from Wharfedale (Dovedale), with a 10" woofer.

Digital is far better than vinyl
One of the major DAC manufacturers (I can't reveal which) is currently working on a little add-on box that will introduce subtle pops and ticks and barely perceptible needle-in-groove surface noise into the digital signal, so that streamers can ha... 
Open Baffle Experience
@soix They were almost certainly the X4's, which is what Spatial has been using recently at shows, coupled with the LTA ZOTL40+ integrated.  Earlier in this thread I posted a video of that same combo at the Pacific show.  Because of supply issues ... 
Need HDMI Cable Input: Knowledge/Comparison Assist, Please
The DH Labs 2.1 uses a mixture of copper and fiber optic conductors. So I wonder if technically it is an AOC cable, though I’ve also read great things about it. The WIreworld Stellar uses purely fiber optic conductors and is also rated 2.1.  There... 
What exactly is a speaker box sound?
