    Re: Magico A5 Official Release

    Is that really so?
    Maybe in the US, but it seems that the brand is losing momentum here in Western Europe.
    Dealers are ditching Magico, and sometimes change to YG, which is a growing brand here....

  5. Re: Avalon Acoustics - Are they still relevant/competitive ?

    While the speakers in our main system aren't made out of wood, there are modern speaker manufacturers that use wood, like Boenicke.
    Some of their transducers sound mighty fine to my ears.

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

    Yes, I know Randy, but he wanted thoughts about the chart.

    Regarding his original question: room doesn't come after pre, amp, DAC for me.
    It comes right behind speakers.
  10. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    Room and speakers are the most important, but I'd give more importance to amps, DAC, cables and power.

    Re: Tesla Cybertruck

    With these specs, if proven true when it finally comes out, the vehicle will smash all competition.

    We see this ensemble live almost every year.

    Conclusion.

    28,000€ gives you almost a complete system.
    Just add a decent streamer.

    We then listened to Bach's Cello Suite no. 1, by Pieter Wispelwey.
    It sounded like a cello has to sound, the ambience of the recording venue also coming through beautifully.
