Legacy Focus 20/20 versus Focus HDs
Anytime...would be glad to. I'll place a caveat on the fact that I've read alot of folks like the Aerial's and many other speakers. The comments I'll send you are only my opinion (I'm not a dealer!) and a comparasion between the 2 models each of w... 
Legacy Focus 20/20 versus Focus HDs
Yes, I own both and the HD's are a fantastic speaker with many differences that I like over and above the things about the 20/20's I (still) love.Correspond with me in email and I'll give you quite lengthy feedback that I've shared with 2 other A-... 
are spike threads standard for speakers legacy
Chad,Another idea to try....I removed the rails and spikes from my 20/20's altogether and have the Focus 20/20's on a 4 Black Diamond Racing Super Jumbo Pucks per side. This makes a hell of a difference over any spike that I tried with the Foci.... 
Legacy Helix Reference Speakers
Thank you both for your help and advice....Happy New Year! 
Subwoofer with XLR I/O
REL Brittania B1 has both XLR and RCA LFE inputs...I own one and love it 
Which $7000 speakers to ask Santa?
Try Legacy Audio Focus 20/20, 16Hz-30Khz (+/- 2db),ability to play a large variety of material musically from pipe organ and full symphony to techno and rock. They retail at around $6500, are extremely well built and a tremendous value for the mon... 
Legacy Helix Reference Speakers
Thank you for your reply....(at least according to specs) the Helix is 16Hz-25Khz +/-2db while the Focus 20/20 is 16Hz-30Khz +/-2db. The Whispers are the ones (at least on paper) where the bass goes to 25Hz. In principal, this would seem to indica... 
New Pre-Pro or Pre with HT by-pass
After alot of listening of both less and more expensive components ($5K-$18K), I came to find the Classe SSP-600 pre/proc to be a great (IMHO) HT as well as 2-ch and multi-channel analog bypass-capable pre/proc.It's got much more to offer than its... 
Power cord that improve the soundstage the most?
From my personal experience over the last 2-3 years during which I've heard many different brands of expensive to ridiculously priced power cords is that my personal prefs tend toward Shunyata powersnakes all around. I owned Taipan, Python and Ana... 
The current SOTA SACD player
I've been wow'ed by and now own a 2-channel, 2-box solution, the Esoteric P-03 and D-03 combination running in Dual XLR AES/EBU configuration; gives pure DSD for SACDs and lots of other options. Word clock in DAC can be used to slave the P-03 tran... 
AMP RECOMMENDATIONS
I am using an EDGE G8 with Legacy Focus 20/20's with extremely good results in all areas. Audioquest Panther interconnects complete the circuit with AQ Volcano wire to the speakers.Good luck! 
Any experience with the Esoteric UX-1
I moved to a UX-1 from a DV-50s (which I enjoyed very much...); the UX-1 is a great player with a video section that blew my ISF engineer away out of the box. I hear the X-01 has better CD/SACD performance (the UX-1 kicks ass on DVD-A) however, Es... 
Esoteric UX-1: How "noisy"?
I've owned a DV-50s and now own a UX-1; neither unit has any audible sound of the disc spinning from 10 inches or 10 feet away (or right next to the unit... 
Speakers for metal, hard rock ... also SS amp
Match Legacy Focus 20/20's with a great amp (Edge G8) and make sure you shotgun biwire them (I have Shotgun AQ Volcano) to give the Focus 20/20 the pipe to take in all it can handle.I have a widge range of musical tastes however on the rock side, ... 
Need info about the Sherbourn PT-7010A
There is a new review on Audioholics of the Emotiva DMC-1 which the owners of Sherbourn have pointed me to as the unit is the same internals and from the same manufacturer as the PT-7010A;http://www.audioholics.com/productreviews/avhardware/Emotiv...
