    Audionet Pre G2 preamp feedback

    I recently purchased Audionet Max amps which I love, simply fantastic. I'm curious about the Pre G2. I'm currently using a Purity Audio Silver Statement which I find is a great match but might the...

    Re: Daft Punk

    yep, kinda sucks. But they had a lot of time together and created some great music. Touch is their Stairway to Heaven IMO.

    Re: Meitner MA-3 DAC

    And HQP managed by ROON sounds noticeably better than ROON stand alone. BTW, Aqua recently introduced the new HQPlayer Core (Server) module for the LinQ? I must have missed that. Cost known yet?
  4. Re: Magico M2 - Stereophile Loudspeaker of the Year 2020

    The M3 is a great speaker especially considering it's a moderately sized 3 - way. The coherence, dynamics, level of detail and accuracy at high SPLs is quite an achievement that few speakers can do...

    Re: Are subwoofers bad for music?

    The short answer is almost always, no. However, it takes more than a few hours and your ears to properly integrate subs. And you need good subs with the ability to adjust not just freq and amplitude...

    Re: The Beatles - Get Back

    This year's been rough on everyone. Let's hope next year we turn the corner in terms of the global economy, this virus and of course, better audio equipment for us all!!!

    Re: The Beatles - Get Back

    Are you so upset because you had a Beatles movie party planned that got cancelled? :-)
  9. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    Looks like they might have used the basket and voice coil and that's it. EA used the stock 120mm magnet while Magico doubled it with, "a second matching magnet on top for complete control of voice...
  10. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    First off, based on your link that 11" ceramic driver is ~91DB efficient being rare - here are a few others that have the same sensitivity across the same frequency range which, to be frank 30 -...
  11. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    Can I ask why can't you press a dome? If you had the appropriate tool why not? Do you believe it can't due to the precision / tight tolerances required?
  12. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    I'm not sure I agree. If the material is the same stock and the difference is the process - CNC versus pressed how does that affect the end resulting driver cone? Unless there is excessive stresses...
  13. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    Thanks Rob, I did understand what you meant hence my B) above (a bigger cabinet results in a larger internal volume). Again at the 1KHz specified frequency the difference is negligible.

    Not to...
  14. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    A) All things being equal bigger drivers are usually more efficient.
    B) Cabinet size will have a marginal effect if any in terms of efficiency since the standard spec to measure is 2.83V (assumes 1W...
  15. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    All things being equal bigger drivers are usually more efficient. The area of the driver supercedes magnet size. Take the Giya G1 to G2, they use the same drivers for H, M-H and M with the only...
  16. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    Considering Magico prides itself on developing all drivers in house I'd be surprised if they leveraged drivers from any vendor especially for their new flagship M9. My information comes from the...
  17. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    Not very well thought out? Ha Ha, relax self - proclaimed audiophile genius.

    First, thanks for your opinion. However you missed and / or misinterpreted several points I made. Specifically - a)...
  18. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    Agree, and I would put Vivid Audio in that camp, also aluminum. Different approaches but both stellar SOTA speaker companies IMO.
  19. Re: Are exotic material drivers required for a SOTA loudspeaker?

    Mike, I'm not sure where you read / heard that the Magico M9 uses ceramic drivers. Their drivers other than the tweeter (Be) use aluminum honeycomb core sandwiched between a graphene/carbon fiber...

    Re: Subs for Ultra Fast Speakers

    The newer Rel subs are quite good but, better than any sub? Validated how? Compared to JL Audio? Magico? Wilson?

    Re: Could you survive with streaming music only?

    You are a rarity in this hobby as nostalgia drives those of us >50 to crave the plastic discs over anything digital. I am like you in that ultimately it's all about the music first. But of course as...

    Re: Could you survive with streaming music only?

    Absolutely I could. The nostalgic won't agree, they need to hold onto the memories of their youth. I get that, I'm old enough to be able to relate but I'm also objective enough to realize the efforts...
