    I would think with only 200 hours the speakers would for sure have a bit more to go. I was wondering what happened to you, I thought with the new system you were probably trapped between the speakers. :) The notion we get used to the sound...

    Like Mike I also went with direct cable and trust their recommendation.. I believe the lack of the option to change and try different cables maybe better :rolleyes: No options no worries :D Whatever the configuration, a great table and one of the...

    In general my wife and I prefer to buy quality products, spend a little extra to get something better, and most of the time buying quality does indeed pay for itself. However more expensive does not always mean the best quality. Case in point,...

    Breakin, I always do like my Porsche dealer ( Brumos Jacksonville) told me once when I had a 911, drive it like you stole it. Equates, to play non-stop music like crazy as soon as you get a component. :celebrate008_2:

    Right on Randy, about the buy expensive is NOT always best concept. Pretty much so on anything. Case in point one of our neighbors bought a really high Fridge Sub Zero Pro 48 about $14K and has nothing but problems with it. My little $1800...

    In my experience I hear a fairly substantial difference in the first 50 hours in almost every new component. Brand new most components that I have purchased are fairly bright and on the harsh side. They substantially smooth out in the first 50...

    Absolutely spot on Randy, more expensive gear does not always equate to better sound or determine what we may prefer. I've generally found that within a brand's offerings there is a more likely correlation between cost and performance, but when...

    Mike, The tweeter in A and S series are different, from what i have experienced (comparing A3 to S3MK II and S1MK II) the sound in S series is much more airy, refined and i would say luxuries Since A5 use the same tweeter as A3, I cannot see how...

    Twi'leks first appeared in 1983's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Not sure if George Lucas, or whoever designed them, got their inspiration from anything else. The Giya shape looks a lot like a Klein bottle. And there's also the nautilus.
