Harbeth comparison?
Hi Yogi,Don't know if my experience can help, but I have both the P3ESR and the M30.1s in my house. My primary listening room is 12x17x8, so a bit smaller than yours. I bought the P3ESR first and enjoyed them a lot in my mostly Naim system. I then...

What's your favorite lyric from a song?
Tostadosunidos! The Dylan line is epic! 
What's your favorite lyric from a song?
Lots of good ones already. I have trouble picking one. I love song lyrics. Here's some for me that for some reason jumped right to memory:"The paper holds their folded faces to the floor And every day the paper boy brings more.""I feel the earth m... 
New Member Needs Help
Golftime, I envy your golf time! congrats on your retirement! I had an Adcom 555/555 set for a while in one of my setups. Adcom was good value for money in the 90s, but I was shocked when an unassuming little Naim Nait 5i integrated amp that I had... 
Do you think audiophiles are the most gullible hobbyists
Absolutely not! I see little kids being outfitted with $500 baseball bats. Photography, woodworking, automobiles, home design and decoration, women's shoes and purses, computer gaming, name the hobby, they all have their suckers. 
ARE YOU A " TRUE EXPERT AUDIOPHILE " ( T E A ) ???
To me, a "true expert audiophile" would be the rare bird that has a wealth of experience connecting different makes and models of gear to arrive at a certain sound for a certain requirement and a certain environment. This person has a vast knowled... 
Where does your user name come from?
What a great topic! Cool to hear where some of these come from.All my usernames across various sites come from The Godfather. I'm the godfather to my nephew, poor kid, and when he was little I had no end of fun doing Godfather "shtick" - the orang... 
Harbeth 40.1 - Need some tips on placement from current owners.
Nice! Congrats Grannyring!I'd like to have your dilemma! I have M30.1s, so not quite the same thing, just the top 1/4 for half the price : ) Not sure my siting will translate to the big brothers, but I used the Cardas method to get in the ballpark... 
When rap came out 30 years ago I thought it was just a fad
Remember Blondie's Rapture? As a white kid growing up in the country, that was my first exposure to rap. Up until that point, I didn't even know it existed. When we first heard that song, we were thinking "What the hell is all the talking for? She... 
Integrated Amp with Separate Volume Controls
For separate controls, maybe a Redgum? I think all those have separate pots, but not sure if they are synchronized or not.Some balance control options that come to mind are Accuphase, Luxman, Naim Supernait, Manley Stingray. 
Rockwell: audiophile term "just like a pedophile"
But his obsession with gear - cameras, cars, audio - are healthy of course, because he is genuine and all about the music, and the picture, and the drive. No one else is. Just Ken Rockwell. Remember the name, ladies and gentlemen, that's Ken Rockw... 
Happy music...
Brauser's suggestion is a good one! I don't recall too many polka dirges. Mariachi, Salsa, Rag Time, Bop and New Orleans Jazz, WWII era big band and swing, pop music from the 50s all come to mind as generally upbeat.Louis Prima's Zooma Zooma Bacal... 
Best Christmas music, CD or album on your list ?
I LOVE Christmas albums. I tend to play a lot of Christmas music between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Along with the standards from Bing, Nat, Brenda Lee, Jose Feliciano, Johnny Mathis, Elvis, Burl Ives, et al, that I have to hear each year for Chr...
