    Re: Just finished the last

    Welcome to AS!

    If you are happy with the sound, then you have done right. Sticking with a single manufacturer’s products frequently leads to consistency, developing their “house sound”.

  3. Re: Savant vs. Control4 vs. Elan for home automation

    Also be aware that these amps are about 25 watts of Class A, your speakers need to be reasonably efficient.
  4. Re: Savant vs. Control4 vs. Elan for home automation

    I will say, the one friend of mine who is very happy with his Control4 system managed to learn to program it himself.

    My install "guy" would charge at least $100 for walking in the house. Its...

    Re: Favorite Phonostage under $15k?

    :popcorn:

    I am still loving my K&K Audio Maxxed Phono Amp - it was a $3K kit. Much better than the Cambridge Audio unit I started with.

    Not saying I might not upgrade one day...

    Re: what Phono stage do you using?

    A few years back I built a K&K Audio Maxxed Phono Amp with silver Lundahl step up transformers. It’s still a rock star.

    Re: Speaker recommendation

    Look at Tekton Design, they have The “Mini-Lore” for $595, and what look to be a stellar pair of speakers that just fit the size required the “Dynamite” for a bit over budget, $1500.
