  1. Re: Network Streamer? Network Player? What am I looking for?

    Avoid HOAs like the plague.
  2. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    It’s all relative.
  3. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    The bottom line is that tube gear is going to cost more money to operate over time than SS gear. Tubes have a finite life and will have to be replaced periodically. People who aren’t willing to...
  4. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    You are correct about reliability being an objective measurement. The hard data is in the hands of the OEMs who repair their gear and track their failure modes. Audiophiles don’t have access to...
  5. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Well said.
  6. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    It certainly does Dan.
  7. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    AJ-You were making fun of tubes for not being reliable for space use and I was trying to make sure you're aware that we indeed have tubes flying in space. That's it. Nothing else. As for Joe's...
  8. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    It was this comment from you:

    "Worldwide space programs long abandoned solid state hardware for audiophile tube technology, especially in deep space probes. Believe me."

    I just wanted you to...

    Do you know that your microwave oven uses a vacuum tube?

    Re: Another reason to not stream

    Exactly. You start a thread to shame people not to stream music on an audio forum owned by a stereo dealer who happens to sell streaming devices while you are virtue signaling that you don’t stream...

    Or what?
  12. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    You do realize that satellites use microwave tubes which share something in common with audio tubes? They are both vacuum tubes.

    Re: Another reason to not stream

    Mike-Randy started this thread to convince people that streaming was evil because we were guilty of helping rip off musicians. Now we are down to having too much music to choose from on Tidal and...

    Re: ARC Ref 3 Review

    Thanks Mike! The Ref 3 is a joy to use as well as listen to. To be able to control so many functions from your listening chair is awesome.
  15. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Yeah, but why not start a thread bashing tube gear anyway?

    Re: ARC Ref 3 Review

    Thanks Mike! I’m sure the Deluxe is a significant step up over the 1.2. I’m very happy with the Ref 3 phono. It’s special.

    Re: Hegel 390 arrives

    This sounds like a piece that would be perfect for bluegrass. This would be all he needs to make his Harbeth speakers sing plus it has a built in DAC and he’s ready to stream digital.

    Class A/B or Class D?
  21. Re: How much power (wpc) is more than enough for most speakers and systems?

    Yes, you were. You thought you were going to dive right into the deep end of the high end pool, but you found that you had to walk into the wading pool.

    You are correct. That is peak power readings you are seeing that rise and fall very quickly.
  25. Re: Vinyl Is Poised to Outsell CDs For the First Time Since 1986

    I don't agree with the statement or your sentiment. Now if this sentence said "In the end, physical digital media is dying" it would be much closer to the truth. Streaming isn't the future of...
