Need Suggestions for speakers up to $15K new/used
I went to the Newport Beach Audio show in June and the best speakers I heard were the Raidho and Nola's so it is interesting that you have picked those speakers out as your favorites.  Unfortunately, the speakers they had on display were beyond my...

Upgrading Power Service In New Home Build
I am building a new home in Arizona.  Unfortunately, the original developer only provided service for a 200 amp sub-division.  I needed a 400 amp system which was part of my original architectural guidelines.  Once that was established, I went to ...

Raven Audio Tube amps
I ended up buying an upgraded version of the Raven MK2 Reflection integrated amp at 58 wpc.  Despite loving  Legacy and Tekton, I purchased Wilson audio duette 2's for my two channel room.  I met Dave Thomson at the Newport audio show and he is th... 
Silverline Speakers Minuet Supreme Plus - Sonatina MKIV
I went to the Newport Beach audio show and heard all of these speakers that I could not afford.  Then for some reason I went into the Silverline room.  I ended up going back to the room 3 times.  I really thought the sound for a 600-700 speaker wa... 
James Audio vs Triad In Wall Speakers
I still have to decide on Subs.  For the theater room if I do not use in walls, I was thinking about Powersound.  I talked to the owner and he previously created and developed the SVS line of subs before he left the company.  I am thinking they ha... 
James Audio vs Triad In Wall Speakers
Thx...I ended up just buying Dali Phantom Helicon in wall speakers.  It was just too good of deal to pass up.  I still may buy the in wall subwoofers.  Are you a fan of James Subwoofers?  I am looking for a pair to mate to Wilson Audio Duette 2's ... 
Anything you liked at the Newport Show?
Most of the speakers I heard were totally a pipe dream for me.  Let me start at the low end.  With all of the buzz on Elac I had to go listen.  The room was crowded with all of the fanfare.  I am not buying the hype.  For me the sound was just ave... 
In wall speakers
I am looking at in walls for my theater room also.  I had RBH in my last theater room and they were good.  I am looking at Triad and James audio for my new theater room.  They are way more expensive than what his budget allows.  To be honest at th... 
Do female audiophiles exist
I know my spouse is not one.  I recently bought a pair of Wilson Audio Duette 2's with a Raven integrated MK2 Reflection tube amp.  I am building a new house and was going to put the speakers in the great room.  All I have heard for the last three... 
Great bookshelf or small towers suggestions
Check out Tekton Pendragon for half of your budget and a huge sound 
What are the best on-wall speakers
Legacy Silhouettes if you have the budget.  Call Legacy and talk to Bill.  Focal and Dali have some great in wall speakers and Totem Tribe would be another choice for on wall.  If money was not  an object I would definitely go with Legacy. 
Oh brother, am I in desperate need of help! 8)
Call Eric at Tekton.  I am buying the Pendragons for my theater room.  After talking to Eric your mind will be made up much easier.  I know you can't judge a speaker on You Tube, but you may just want to give the Pendragons a try just to get a sen... 
Speakers - Theater Room Dilemma
You are both right.  The one question related to whether different subs from the Tekton speakers would be ok.  I then took it further and was wondering if it was a concern if I had different surrounds from the front three.  If I could add one more...
