    Re: New AXPONA 2021 Date Announced

    I wear a mask when I have too, it really bugs me for a long time. Not adeal breaker though if we get a group together to go. It's just too early to say one way or the other.

    I will say, I barely...

    Re: Learning to listen

    I think we all have a similar experience or at least learn what to listen for. Not to open a can of worms but this is what bothers me with DBT and those who claim not to hear differences in cables...

    Re: New AXPONA 2021 Date Announced

    I haven't heard anything about that but my guess is AXPONA may remain in Oct. they tried to move to that month in the past. I personally like it in April better. It is really close to RMAF as well....

    Tidal has some issues to work out. I haven't switched yet due to Tidal having some more obscure titles I like. The main issue is thesearch function. To be fair I need to do more comparing the...

    Re: Aragon is back

    I read something about that rumur in a review, the writer said someone else's name was on the circuit board. Fact, or, rumour to boast sales, who knows.

    I didn't find pricing on the new amps. ...

    Aragon is back

    I could be the only one who didn't realize this. They only have a set of monoblocks and a stereo amp, called Titanium. I suppose you have to start somewhere. I would have expected a preamp,...

    Re: Could it be I don't care for Class A

    You think that much.... hmmm. If that is the case it isn't class A that's the issue then. The amp doesn't get very warm to have class A bias.

    Re: Could it be I don't care for Class A

    I looked at that Marantz pair back when but couldn't find reviews or much said about them.

    I'd like to hear what the ATI Class D sound like.

    Hello & welcome. Many members show their gear in their signature. I know a few have Esoteric. Checking Mike's line card he is also a dealer.
  12. Re: Fremer's Generac problem--whole-house generators and SQ

    I wonder what pollution the generator injects into the wiring that a power conditioner or regenerator couldn't cure?

    I'm not that familiar with the generator system. I looked into some type of...

    Re: Spotify HiFi is coming

    I wonder if Qobuz membership dropped, I saw a comparison last year giving them higher numbers. I think they could hang on as a nitch with offering high res. I don't see them and Spotify competing...

    Re: Spotify HiFi is coming

    I think Spotify becoming lossless is significant as they have a large existing customer base.

    How much is Spotify Premium? Tidal may struggle being the most expensive of all the services.

    It is class A but look at the Schiit Alger, not sure spelled correctly, a friend says it is supposed to be crazy good for cheap.

    Congrats, sounds like expectations were exceeded.

    Volti and Sadurni are a couple of my favorite horn speakers.

    Re: Marten speakers

    Welcome.

    I heard the $100k model at Axpona and didn't like them at all. Again, this was at a show, maybe being in the sweet spot is critical for the brand or positioning needed tweaking.
  18. Re: Integration of 2 channel into existing hime theater

    Paradigm benefits from an amp that can produce current. I would recommend a Parasound A21 or perhaps a Bryston 3b.

    The addition of a power amp will help but it will be limted by the performance...

    Also, welcome to the forums.

  20. Re: Integration of 2 channel into existing hime theater

    The Pass is easy enough, pre-out from Marantz into XP20 by pass. This will make the Pass pre/power a slave to the Marantz for home theater. When bypass is off the Pass system will drive the TAD's...

    Re: Leaving Components On Continuously

    Like Here Here I had a processor blown from lightning when it was off, so unplugging is only safe way, unless you trust your power protection.

    My Pass pre stayed on all the time, no power switch. ...
  22. Re: Tidal Misleading Listeners ??? (Neil Young on why he's no longer on Tidal)

    I wonder if there was both NY's original 44.1k as well as the MQA version? If so I'd say let the listener choose. However, I can see the artistic purist view as well.

    It's a bit of a pain but if...

    Keep in mind those lists are someone's opinion, not definitive, so ifthe Yamaha has everything you need and that's the one you like, then get that one. Yamaha holds their own in the receiver market....
  25. Re: Does anyone use OFFLINE mode in either Tidal or Qobuz?

    Hi Peter, when streaming Tidal from Lumin does the unit download the song before playing it, or buffers a portion?

    The article says that playing the music file offline is superior to streaming it.
