Has anyone finally decided to sell their Turntable and Vinyl collection?
Selling 2500 LPs to help finance a "comedy feature film" would net enough money to hire a grip for half a day. Maybe one light...15 minutes of a steadycam... 
Klipsch Heresy III vs Forte III
D2girls is like the passed out drunk in the middle of the party that's best ignored. 
What is your favorite tube type?
My recent faves after trying various types have been the new Tung Sol 7581a, but I recently bought a Dennis Had "hot rod" SEP "high output" (12wpc or something depending on tubes) that's around 6 months newer than my current Had "fire bottle," and... 
Klipsch K Horns (the new AK6)
My Heresy III "Capitol Records" edition (meaningless relative to other Heresy IIIs other than the "special" ebony finish that looks like dark purple) pair are built like little tanks, and if you knock on the sides you get nothing more than a bruis... 
Klipsch K Horns (the new AK6)
I'd be very surprised if anyone would buy these relatively gigantic speakers for 15 grand, and after moving the furniture around in their ballroom or airplane hanger would sit there and say, "these suck." I'd bet these buyers know what's what with... 
New Magico A1 Bookshelf Speakers!
At least the Magicos won't rust or warp. 
What’s really hurting the audio hobby?
I can assume from this thread that few here actually know any young people, or the fact that they often pack venues like Red Rocks to see actual musicians (my daughter lives in Denver, and she and her friends all seem to be serious live music fans... 
Barometric pressure, temperature, moon phase?
Remove your hat. 
SET amplifier recommendation
There's a Dennis Had SEP amp for sale (not mine, but similar) here...that could sort of solve any Coincident issues. 
Balanced vs RCA between amp/preamp
A note about balanced pro audio...In my long career as a concert soundman, I can attest to the fact that NOBODY unplugs a balanced anything while the system is powered up, and if somebody does I will possibly throw them out of the building. The ba... 
What was your first system? When was that?
I mentioned in a previous post that in '69 or '70 I bought a KLH Model 20 (the non-tuner version of these things...regretted not buying the tuner version) that came with those very cool sounding KLH speakers. A great system that just sounded amazi... 
What were some of your early Hi-End audio gear/influences?
When I was dropping out of high school to start college early (Spring semester, I had my classes picked out, was all set) there was a ridiculous couple of weeks I had to wait for my paperwork to go through...lame but meh...so I hung out in the lib... 
The term "High End" needs to die. Long live Hi-Fidelity!
jsautter...I don't think you got the gist of my post...obviously a good system can be obtained by paying for a new Boulder or D'Agostino "Relentless" amp, $40,000 cables, or any number of things in the range of precious hifi stuff...but a simple e... 
Klipsch, high end?
I've decided to finally say something nice about my Klipsch Heresy IIIs because after all, my comments are always important...ahem...they're a really great sounding speaker, unless you own two of them like I do...in that case it's "speakers."  
The term "High End" needs to die. Long live Hi-Fidelity!
I like the term "hifi" and use it frequently, and although I'm lucky at this stage in my life to be able to afford pricey stuff, I've always felt that there's a lot of reasonably affordable (a relative term really) brilliantly  designed components...
