    Re: New System Updates!

    You will need to find a single man to sell them to or a man who has his own private listening room.
  3. Re: Magico A3 owners - what is your speaker cable of choice?

    Here’s one thing I know: If 100 different people who own A3 speakers responded in this thread, you would get 100 different answers.

    Re: Possible power outage for next two days

    PG&E said this will be the new normal for CA. Expect to have widespread power outages for undetermined periods of time when the winds blow.

    Re: Abbey Road

    Obviously I'm not a fan. However, there are people praising the Qobuz 24/96 version to high heaven.

    Re: Abbey Road

    I didn't like anything about it. It just sounds wrong to me on so many levels. The life and flow of the EMI Parlaphone LP has been removed from the remastered digital version. I scratch my head...

    Re: Abbey Road

    I listened to the Qobuz 24/96 version of the newly remastered Abbey Road last night and I don't share the feelings of other people who were blown away buy it. I hope the vinyl sounds way better...

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

    It’s all relative.
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

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

    It certainly does Dan.
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    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...

  22. 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: 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.
  25. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

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