    Re: Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers

    That might be a good question to directly ask the factory or your Borresen dealer.


    Usually the custom colours are for the cabinet. The front metal faceplate, speaker baffles and surrounds are...

    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    Please do report back what happens when you plug the Mainz8-D into the Mainz8 D-TC. I've also read good things but haven't actually tried it myself.
  4. Re: Ken Ishiwata of Marantz passes away at 72

    R.I.P Ken and thank you for your contribution over many decades to the audio industry.

  6. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    The location of your listening chair is pivotal. Indeed, calibrated mics combined with REW or other similar software can clearly reveal room issues.

    The aim is smooth bass. Yes, one can and...
  7. Re: Hundreds, Even Thousands Of Dollars For Speaker, Power, And Other Cables...Really?

    Yes, dealer demo's can often eclipse whats achieved at home because dealers usually have the experience necessary to optimally set up and demonstrate equipment. Part of the 'optimal' equation is...
  8. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    The room / loudspeaker interface is of the most importance.

    The room in concert with speakers acts like a giant tone control, potentially boosting some audio frequencies by 10dB (or more) and...

    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    IMHO Naim is very clever placing power supplies in a separate box. Quite a few high end pre-amplifier designs take a similar approach.

    By reducing noise in the mains in a non-inductive way [the...

    Re: What happened to tone controls?

    I think it’s fair to say that many audiophiles see tone controls as unwanted and unnecessary. As Ralph points out they add circuitry and noise.

    Re: Ansuz Cables & Accessories

    Ansuz say that are not able to produce the tone arm cable in X or P2 level. I believe this comes down to how the cable is constructed. They can’t make them the same way as they do with their other...
