  1. Re: Audio and the wealthy - Soundstage Article

    One year at AXPONA one of the main KEF sales guys was running the room and one of their demonstrations was a side by side comparison of the LS50's and a set of Blades. What he was pointing out for...

    Re: Low To Mid Priced Systems

    That makes no sense. Especially if your goal is best sound for the money. If you have $3k speakers ad a $300.00 streamer all you get is a $300.00 sound. Granted the $300 sound will be better...

    Re: RIP Dusty Hill

    RIP

    I've been a fan as long as I can remember, seem them in concert, it's a tough loss.
  4. Re: Audio and the wealthy - Soundstage Article

    The article is just an editorial, one man's opinion, and subjective. For example, who says the $40k piece is worse than the $4k piece, Doug? On the other hand that doesn't mean there isn't a good...

    Re: Low To Mid Priced Systems

    Well, someone woke up on the wrong side of the listening chair. And, quite presumptuous of you I must say.

    I can only speak for me, I have heard what I recommended and only recommend what I'm...

    Re: Gryphon Diablo 300 and Salon 2

    I've seen some good prices for used 534 but they aren't always up for sale.

    ML does have apreamp in the $10k range in their 5nnn series gear. Also, look at Bricasti, Brian the designer was with...

    Re: Low To Mid Priced Systems

    Naim was a good suggestion.

    One option would be the Halo integrated, Bluesound Node & remaining $2k or so for JBL 4312g or maybe a Kef R-series, not sure the pricing. If not open box the 4312g...

    Re: Gryphon Diablo 300 and Salon 2

    I suspect your dealer is just trying to sell what he has.

    I think Diablo would do the job.

    My friend had Salons for a long time and I have heard them with several amps. First he had the 532h...

    Re: JBL Bel Aire Speakers

    JBL is coming out with a 6" 2-way monitor, I get the models mixed up, so many, but I think the 4329. To my knowledge no reissue of the model you mentioned but they are revamping several olde models....

    Re: Equalizers

    EQ's in the 70's were basically money makers, a fad, everyone had the big smily face on them. Most introduced noise. And, even better if it had lights.

    In order for an EQ to even be effective...

    Re: vandersteen ct treo + Rotel

    Welcome to AS.

    I am not enthusiastic about Rotel, not a brand I'd personally use, subjective my opinion. I just do not enjoy their house sound. I actually prefer their Class D amps over the A/B....

    What type treatments? Panels are not typically full frequency, thinner will reduce highs and move down frequency with thickness. That's why most bass traps are thick.

    I would expect a noticeable difference from the items you describe, but, how noticeable I'm not sure. New part, like caps can require some break in time.

    Re: Best Tidal tracks/albums

    Patricia Barber has two new songs on Tidal in MQA 352k. I don't get the full unfold but would love to hear these in full 352k to satisfy curiosity. They are single tracks from a upcoming album.

  25. Re: Hardware for Adjusting the Center Image in Stereo

    Not to my knowledge. Back in the 90's when surround sound began to dominate the mainstream things like EQ and other similar faded away. Most A/V receivers had built-in EQ that was much better end...
