Mike Borresen - He now can do what he wants in design instead of being told what to do by corporations. 
Borresen Acoustics Speakers - Have you heard them & what did you think?
Hi Ralph its GeorgeThe speakers Steve59 heard were the 03’s. I was there too. IMO the tweeter is smoother and more airy. That day they started with the 03 then the 02 and then the 01. Not sure how many hrs were on them at the time. I have to say t... 
one short and one long speaker cable work?
You could always go to a local hardware store and pick up 8M of wire and cut it into a 2M and 6M lengths and try to hear a difference between your AQ's at equal length. Listen for imaging and soundstage not the differences in tonality.  
Raidho D2.1
Well we did not demo a Raidho and Borresen side by side. BUMMER IMO. Anyhow the Borresens are fantastic. The highs are even more airy - smooth and detailed than the Raidho's. We demoed the 01's - 02's and the 03's. Believe it or not but they are f... 
Raidho D2.1
Tomorrow I'm going to a 'soft' Borresen speaker demo at my dealer. What I mean by a soft demo is with several other folks try to determine the best positioning. They are not broken in yet either. I'm not sure if he is willing to compare them to th... 
Raidho D2.1
Raidho's will sound the best with good clean power. That said they sound wonderful even with lower powered amps. More power will give you better control of the music. Nothing earth shattering but just better. I went from the Octave V70se (70W) to ...

Whats the FATTEST sounding Tube amp to warm up Lean speakers?
@signaturesoundGuess I should have looked at the specs for the amp first but at least I got share my impressions of some of the different output tubes I have. 
What are fuses used for?
@E I would love to see a spec that described how something sounded. 
Whats the FATTEST sounding Tube amp to warm up Lean speakers?
@drumbeatCongrats on the Joules!! Curious what type and brand of output tubes does it comes with? I ask because I've seen replies stating 6550 - KT88 etc (myself included). When I mentioned TS 6550 solid plate vintage I did because they are very w... 
Whats the FATTEST sounding Tube amp to warm up Lean speakers?
I'll go as far to say it's not the tube amp but rather your choice of tubes. Vintage little Mullards are extremely warm sounding. Vintage Tung Sol 6550's solid plates are warm like Mullards but with the EL34's glorious mids that are known for but ...

@noble100Wish I had a dollar for every post I initially misunderstood LOL!!

Tim I have never had build up in the volume pot cause the unit to shut down where you have power cycle the unit to get it to work again. But what I have had seen with build up on the volume - balance or tone controls is a static sound that will co...

I agree with mofimadness4. Almost sounds like the Rotel doesn't have a proper ground causing static to be discharged through the electronics and not the case. 
Best amp for Raidho Speakers
br3098 I think you're mistaken. Dantex (parent company of Raidho) bought GamuT.
