    Re: need advice!

    OK Bob, one more question......... if he still plans to continue with his TT set up for the time being is it safe to assume his cartridge is MM or high output MC ? I ask because not all integrated...

    Re: need advice!

    Agreed, I asked the Op several key questions to help us all get started and 'no answer' ?? perhaps his next reply ?

    Re: need advice!

    Is it fair to assume he wants to put together playback primarily for Lp's and CD's ? Is any of his existing gear functional ? is he willing to buy used ? If the entire budget is for speakers, source...
  7. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Agreed on JA, been a subscriber to JGH's rag since the seventies. While I have not read everything AMIR and ASR have tested/measured I've read enough to know there is a measure of validity in his...
  8. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Re: Time to say goodbye ........

    Understood, my brother retired after 36 years as a 'throttle jockey' and he felt the same way. After my first five years in Operations I spent the rest of my career in Mg'mt.

    Mark, LOL most retirees have told me the same but I admit after 47 years it was tough to say goodbye. I was blessed, I loved my career/job !

    Re: Time to say goodbye ........

    Thanks George, I was somewhat amazed as to how long it took me to adjust, probably 8 months or so !
  12. Re: Venturing into the realm of room acoustics and treatments...

    While I'm in agreement with Mike I will add a caveat ........ speaker placement from front wall should be a min of 40" and ideally 4-6 feet. When room constraints force one to place speakers closer...

    Re: SS vs Tube - experiences

    like most 'old timers' around here we started out with tubes and like the tide of the ocean went back and forth. I agree with Mike's summation, for me now it's a combo platter.......phono-pre-tube,...

    Re: Gryphon Diablo 300 and Salon 2

    Good to hear although that is a small room for those speakers so it shouldn't be hard to pressurize.
  16. Re: Loudspeakercables (12x) Blindtest, measurements, music samples

    Brad, my sentiments exactly, thus my 'Z' reply in post #6. Life is too short to listen to a freakin' cable cable shoot-out on YouTube when I could be listening to great music instead !!

    Re: Help me pick a new pair of speakers

    it's been a month, have you gotten any closer to a decision ? if not, another thought .......

    Since you like Revel (as do I), perhaps a move upward in the Revel line ?

    Re: New System Improvements

    Excellent, now for a question, is it 'fine tuned' for your room as is ? perhaps a little acoustic help might be in order ?



    Assuming your GearIt speaker wire is 12 AWG you should be just fine.
