    Classé Delta PRE & MONO are much better than OK, but check also Pilium or Luxman C-900u & M-900u (or pair of M-900u)

    Yes, the Classe is very underrated, but a much better pairing with Kharma is Block Audio. Talk to Craig on the forum here and give me a call. We handle US and Canada. I’m waiting on our new MSB Cascade, so I’ll let you know. Are you in...

    Alan, it probably won’t tell you much as it was particular for his setup with 8 subs (!!), four towering bass horns, 2 x 231’s and 2 x additional subs at the rear for his room and HIS type of music (classical). For one thing, we had to start with...

    You do have to often wonder how people listen…especially at shows. That one guy who liked the Aries Cerat also liked the Linn. I’ve heard from numerous people these were the two worst sounding rooms (with the third being the new Vivid’s). Shows...

    Yes. Seems like the Wilson/CH room didn’t fair well either. Frankly, that’s a pairing I just don’t see. I mean, on paper it should make a lot of sense: speaker with a lot of lower mid bass energy and a slightly lean in the bass set of...
