    Congrats on getting your old records back. I gave my collection away at least 30 years ago. I probably deserve to be publicly humiliated for being a dumbass. (Oops, I just was.....lol)

    I’ll just say this… if you have an opportunity to hear the M9s, do it. At the showroom even better. I’d love to go back and spend a relaxed evening listening to my own references. Maybe I can tempt Alon with a stunning bottle of wine. I’d pay to...

    My thoughts on the upgrade of my N10 to a N20. Yes the N20 is better and extracts more data, but at what cost? My N10 was like a soft warm blanket and the N20 is more like a Vegas neon light show experience. Both present you with the musical info...

    The Steve Huff review of not only the amp, but Mark at Reno HiFi are excellent. I bought a reconditioned Pass X250 from Mark in 2019 and there’s no a single mark or chip anywhere on it. Oh yes, it sounds phenomenal powering my Focal Aria 948s.
