    I still havenít installed the A Pods yet. Iím planning on continuing to tweak their positions and let them burn-in some more. But Iím looking forward to finding their best placement.

    Thank you! Yes, the midrange is quite special already. I am sorry to hear about the excessive bass in your system. As you can see, my room is on the larger size and benefits from the bigger bass presence.

    That is correct - I really enjoyed my time with the Pass Labs electronics. A great company with gear that sounded and looked great (to me). To put it simply, though, the Gryphon house-sound is just more for my tastes. The Pass and Gryphon both have...

    The Gryphon - Magico pairing really is something. I think they complement themselves quite nicely. Though each system produced a different "sound", it reminds me how well Naim and Dynaudio play together. The mid driver definitely steals the show,...
