Recommendation for carpet spikes for Dynaudio Stand 20 speaker stands
MC,I got the Nobspings and put them under my Sachs' tube amp a bit ago, in place of my foam core corregated rubber pads.  I am apt say that the bass seems a bit more emphatic and the sound somewhat more vivid.  Great tweak, I think, but I could no... 
Recommendation for carpet spikes for Dynaudio Stand 20 speaker stands
Thanks. I kicked the question to Dynaudio for their factory replacement spikes.  There is a rather limited depth of the screw holes in the stands and aftermarket spikes might be a PIA.   
Recommendation for carpet spikes for Dynaudio Stand 20 speaker stands
MC,Thanks for the recommendation but with the location of the speakers, where I walk by them 100X a day in my LV, these would be far too unstable as they sit on thick carpet.  Ergonomically, I need low spikes.  I will try them for other components... 
My new VTV Audio Class D amp arrived today
rtorchia,Good for you, I hope you enjoy it.  I haven't swapped my McCormack SS amp in place of the VTV amp yet, but I did with my Don Sachs KT88 tube amp.  The VTV is a very neutral sounding amp, while the Sachs amp is emblematic of the very best ... 
My new VTV Audio Class D amp arrived today
Gents,My initial impressions of the excellent performance of this amp have been validated after 3 weeks of listening.  I honestly don't sense much difference in the SQ  in my system during the run-in process.  It is a rather neutral sounding amp, ... 
My NAD 3020 D proves your Class D tropes are wrong
I formerly agreed with Teo, but after getting a VTV amp with the Purifi module and the Sparkos op amp, I am truly impressed with the sound in my system.  It sounds neither warm nor cold, but reveals an amazing amount of information in such an utte... 
Recommendations for a modestly-priced audio system?
Great information, gents, for sure.  I will follow up with my pal at Crutchfield tomorrow about this remote control capability for further clarification.  She ordered the Tekton M-Lores for downstairs and I am steering her in the direction of Elac... 
Recommendations for a modestly-priced audio system?
Gents,I visited my friend today to size up the situation and her needs.  She needs music is two zones: first, the upstairs area where her audio cabinet resides with existing crappy speakers on top of the cabinet, playing into her bedroom directly ... 
My new VTV Audio Class D amp arrived today
Soix,I have the DNA .05 amp, with the Platinum Upgrades. t ramey,I think the gain is around 13 db, but by connecting an internal jumper, it would increase significantly.  No need for that in my current system.  I have a Don Sachs tube preamp.  My ... 
Recommendations for a modestly-priced audio system?
Do you have a specific Marantz amp in mind?  Your reference to bookshelf speakers on sale is unclear; can you clarify?  Thank you, MarkA further question for consideration.  Might it be desirable to forgo a BT-enabled amp and go with an external B... 
My new VTV Audio Class D amp arrived today
I have maybe 30 hours on the amp and honestly sense very little difference in SQ since the time I connected it to my system and have run it in.  I am really impressed with the crystal clarity of the music, along with very large soundstage and tona... 
Recommendations for a modestly-priced audio system?
Well, I knew you fellas would come up with some excellent suggestions and you have.  I am leaning towards the Cambridge AXA-85 receiver and the Tekton M-Lore speakers.  She will have the ability to connect her TT to the amp, but clearly her TT nee... 
Recommendations for a modestly-priced audio system?
Well, that is what her budget allows.   BT will allow her to stream music to her system from her computer or iPhone via Tidal etc.   
My new VTV Audio Class D amp arrived today
twoleftears,I was, but figured my tube preamp would enough.  The tweaks offered above look interesting so thanks for the share on that.

Dunno about that as I did not open it up.  The build quality of his amps have been noted on forums, but Warren indicated in our discussions that these beefs have been addressed with his upgraded QC efforts.
