  1. Re: Full range tower speakers, ~$6k and under?

    And the rest of their stated return policy:

    With “custom” finishes and/or more expensive speakers, this is not practical. If we only offered three or four standard finishes, it would not be a...
  2. Re: Will I lose sound quality using standard XLR cables in place of AES/EBU 110ohm cables

    When using XLR cables for a digital connection the source and load circuitry is designed to work optimally with an ideal load impedance of the 110 ohm AES/EBU standard. While standard XLRs will not...

    Re: Hegel 390 arrives

    Re: Monoblock vs Stereo Amps

    A mono amp only supports amplification of a single channel. Stereo reproduction requires two channels, so a single stereo amp could be used or two mono amps. A stereo amp may internally contain two...

    Re: Digital cable shoot-out

    My technical training (EE) as well as decades of experience in critical listening strongly disputes most of that article. Its conclusions would lead us back to the claims of CD reproduction being...

    Re: Digital cable shoot-out

    Digital cables terminated with either RCA or BNC connectors would be 75 ohm cables, but variances in the impedance of the connector can affect the sound. BNCs are available in 75 as well as 50 ohms,...

    I don't have access to the Lumin app at the moment, but I believe there is a filter at the top which allows you to select the sort order of the view, i.e. by artist, album, date added...

    Re: AT-LP6 vs Fluance RT85

    EH - I haven't heard either one (I'm in the deeper end of the turntable pool! ;) ) but from looking them over I'd say the Fluance RT85 would certainly be the better sounding table and arm! Better...

    Re: Ohms And Amp Power Output

    The Luxman L-509X is rated at 120wpc into 8 ohms, and 220wpc into 4 ohms (a bit less than if it had a theoretically perfect power supply which would then provide 240wpc.) So driving the 6 ohm...

    Re: Ohms And Amp Power Output

    Like most technical issues it's not as simple as it first may seem since there are theoretical expectations and then there's reality. It's true that as the load impedance presented to an amplifier by...
  15. Re: Would a Luxman C900u be overkill for an MQ-88SE?

    No harm by asking and I don't think you did anything improper. Just thought that anything more specific about discounts should be kept private.
  16. Re: Would a Luxman C900u be overkill for an MQ-88SE?

    I'd respectfully suggest that any responses about potential discount pricing be kept private via PM rather than in public posts.

    Re: The new JOB INTegrated Amp is coming !

    I have no first hand experience with the JOB INT, but looking at at some pics I see it has a pair of analog inputs which could likely be used to connect an external DAC.
  24. Re: Lumin App (iOS) frequently hangs; requires kill and restart

    I'm just speculating but the fact the U1 and U1MINI function as digital transports only (unlike other models which include internal DACs) could be the reason they may not offer a phase inversion...
