    Mike,

    Your set-up looks way better than those I see at the B&W facility.

    I think that maybe you could teach them a thing or three...

    Re: Top 5 amplifiers for under $100K

    Wow! Never heard it as slow, ever.

    I could offer an opinion as to why it might have seemed slow in your system, but it would appear trollish, so let's just agree to disagree... :peace::peace:...

    IMO, a properly integrated sub is not about the bass, it's about the space...

    Also IMO, the great-as-they-are Avantgarde woofers are not subwoofers. A subwoofer implies a woofer working above it.

    Re: Amedeo from Viva visits Suncoast Audio

    Re: Holger Stein visits Suncoast Audio

    Hmm, I never thought of it as psychological, but as I think of it now, I think it does have some of that aspect.

    Re: Break-in Oil Change

    For me, changeover to synthetic at 500 miles. Then change oil & filter every 3000 miles.

    Of course, this is for cars I own outright. Never leased one.

    Closer to to the 212SE than other models in the S Range. Agile & tuneful.
