    Hi Mike, I asked this question to Q3 (Jim) because he mentions the Diablo 300 in his signature (with 87 db speakers), and I think he was using the L 590 axII before ( with what speakers ?). At home, my Luxman (590 axII) matchs very well with a...

    I was just looking on the website for general information. Some models only gave power into one ohm and not much overall information on the amp. Thanks for your input. Other components may change the balance some in a system but I find amps...

    I owned the Revel Salon 2’s with Pass Lab’s XA-100.5 monoblocks for several years and it was some of the best sound I’ve heard in my listening room. The Salon 2’s are very neutral speakers with one of the flatter response curves measured by JA. They...

    Yes. It’s just a sample to show. These are the copper returns. The ribbons are segmented into traces and the signal has to come down again. It’s copper foil in lieu of cheap copper cables. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
