Tekton Double Impacts vs the competition....
As always, don't feed the trolls. 
Selling my dads top of the line system
First of all, very sorry for your loss. Your dad had great taste in gear. This is some very, very high quality gear, and it is worth a considerable amount of money.I agree with Glen. You will do much better selling these speakers and components se... 
Help selecting a new preamp
@gryphongryph Yes, I absolutely would, both in terms of build and sound quality. These are two outstanding designers. 
Help selecting a new preamp
@markusthenaimnut --  I wish I could give you a more detailed comparison, but I have only had the Sachs preamp for a couple of weeks and am still waiting on Don's KT88 amp--which I also ordered-- to arrive. In the meantime, I've been using a prett... 
Help selecting a new preamp
Don Sachs Model 2 preamp or one of the new generation of Suprateks would be excellent and leave you some money for other upgrades. A good preamp will make a significant difference in your system, at least in my experience. I have owned two Suprate... 
Review: Linear Tube Audio Z10 Integrated Amplifier
@grannyring Bill, you might check with member ghasley, who wrote a wonderful review of the LTA Z10 integrated. If I recall correctly, I think he mentioned (but not necessarily in that review) that they might indeed be coming out with a more powerf... 
Interconnects under 300
Check out the Acoustic BBQ cables. I've tried a ton of different cables ranging up to $2-3K over the years, and Bill's cables are competitive with anything I've had. They are also affordable. Highly recommended. I especially like his Schroeder-sty... 
Supratek or Don Sachs - which way to go?
@cal3713 Congrats on your purchase of the Don Sachs preamp. I'm waiting on one myself--in fact, he's working on mine this week and may be ready to ship in a few more days.Did you also buy his KT88 amp? I did, though it will be several more weeks b... 
Orchid vs TUBADOUR III - Help me choose
@facten To the best of my recollection, the upgrade options are not on the website. Here is the info I received from Vlad via email:1. Duelund caps 2. Z-foil resistors 3. Balanced outputs 4. I2S input I did not include associated costs for each up... 
Orchid vs TUBADOUR III - Help me choose
+1 on the Tubadour with upgrades. I got one about a month ago and love it.No experience with the Orchid, but my Tubadour isn't going anywhere anytime soon. 
Lyngdorf TDAI-3400
@mifanning I hope you enjoy the 3400 as much as I did. It is such a versatile, great-sounding piece. Great pleasure to meet you in person as well. 
How many audiophiles do you need to change a lightbulb?
Doesn't matter. You're going to change it again in fifteen minutes. 
False Advertising
@steakster I think you misunderstood my post, or else I didn't make myself clear. I am saying that the buyer has protection unless he used the Friends and Family option. 
False Advertising
@t_ramey Unless you used the friends and family gift option through Paypal, you are holding all the cards. If it were me, I would give the guy a day or two to give you a partial refund that seems fair to you, but only if you want to keep the pream...
