    This isn't for me.

    This is sort of a 2 part question. A guy needs a preamp with differential balanced, no DAC or phono stage required, solid state.

    Re: Vangelis has passed away

    If not familiar with Aphrodites Child 666 it's a concept album based on the book of the Bible Revelations. You sort of have to begin and let it flow, it's not something you will get by sampling it. ...

    Re: New amp / recommendation

    Definitely, Boulder & D'Agostino. I thought Pass was but on another thread someone said they may not be best for very low impedance. That may vary on model, in an interview Pass indicated building...

    Re: Onkyo Files for Bankruptcy

    This looks like trying to put a positive spin on the situation.

  8. Re: Best Integrated Amp, New Or Used (up to ten years old) $1,500.00 Or Less - With A Warm Sound?

    Atoll is another good value with a nice sound.
