Schiit not that Good?
Wdnt be surprised to see a Vidar 2 in the near future, now nearly 5 yrs on. Wd make sense imo and seems next in line 
I just bought a Audio Research D-90.
Bump and old thread.. cd one use 7581A with D90? (Or other ARC power amps) 
Magico M9 The new 'norm' in speakers
Clever move, timing is kind of good for them. A few people made alot of money during corona.  
Class D is affordable and sounds as good or better the SS/Valve why buy anything else ?
With Lumin now using Leedh volume controls,  I see a compelling argument to just buy a class d /tube hybrid power amp to match, if u dont need a pre for other reasons.The problem is there arent many tube/class D power amps on market..  
Have you ever wondered who sets the trends in the hi-end speaker industry?
The industry is now run by large groups whonare swallowing up brands and large dealerships/distributors who dictate to these groups what products they want.Then they'll employ well known designers within the industry to oversee product development... 
Rogue Audio Sphinx V3

These seem a bit pricey $$$
Swiss taxes and trump duty.. Shd v sound good tho, drivers are excellent. That doped rev midwoofer is the best 5.25" on market imo. tweeter I think is from SB.  But just not sure I believe the specs ie 89 db.. 
sealed 3-ways
Not sure the comparison between TL, sealed and aperiodic is correct. One big advantage of a sealed enclosure is that the woofer is controlled at all bass frequencies. With a ported box this is not the case below box tuning. Also room gain can work... 
Is the 2.5 way speaker the ideal home speaker?
Bump start this thread as I have just come across itMy take on 2.5 ways is that the benefits are only if using roughly 5.5" driver size. Plus points- covering 400hz and below is covered by the surface area of 2 drivers. So baritone vocal range can...

Done. Also see this thread. https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/nad-m3-non-repairable 
Beware of NAD M3 Fire Hazard
I'd be fuming as much as the amp.Will mention this on their IG or FB page.  
Schiit Freya S or Freya +?
Keep reading the Freya + runs hot to the point that part of the casing cannot be touched. Is this normal ?I do want to buy one when funds allow
