  1. Re: Seriously? Who do they think they are fooling?

    Why would anyone want to buy their BHK gear. Over the past year there have been quite a lot used BHK gear for sale on Audiogon and similar sites. I deleted the email as soon as I saw it.

    Re: peachtree audio nova 300

    It should be a good pairing. I have read reviews from several people and Pro reviews from Darko and Stereophile using PeachTree amps to drive Maggies. The PT is a neutral sounding amp and maybe a...

    Re: What's a component you just love

    My Pass amp and Luxman DAC. My Music Hall 25.2 CDP. I love the elegant simple face plate and it has a refined airy sound. It was not high end but it sounded great. Unfortunately I had it modded...
  7. Re: Rowland 625 S2 vs Luxman M900u? What’s better?

    Congrats, enjoy them. The 3.7i's are awesome. Give them 75 to 100 hours of breakin. I own the 1.6's, and should have bought the 3.6's at the time.

    Re: Bookshelf Speaker Selection

    One more recommendation. If you like a warmer sound, consider the Marantz PM6006 Integrated. Marantz has a house sound that I find slightly warm and more organic sounding in their Integrated amps....

    Re: Bookshelf Speaker Selection

    None of those speakers are warm sounding.

    Look at the Wharfedale Diamond 11.2's, (my son owns a pair of the older 10.2's and the 11.2's are supposed to be much more refined) The 10.2's are very...

    Re: Burn-in cd

    Can I rip the disk and will it still work? I don't have my CDP hooked up as I have all my music ( 9TB) on a HD and the rest on vinyl.

    Re: Burn-in cd

    So what is the theory behind a burn in disk refreshing the system? I am curious to know. By the way, I am not trying to discredit your claim as I believe you hear a difference.

    Bryan, I like the AVA amps but I don't want monoblocks and I don't want to spend almost $8K for new amps. If and when I decide to get a new amp it will probably be an integrated as I begin to down...

    Re: Amp Opinions?

    Mr. P

    I think a preamp matters just as much for low level listening. I had the Pass XP-1 preamp with my X250 amp. While I did not really care for the preamp, I did love the fact that low level...

    I would love to try one. My only issue with the design is the inputs and outputs on opposite ends. It makes placement in a stereo rack difficult when all your cables are in the back. I know of a...
