  1. Re: Subwoofer setup with AVR and stereo amp

    So you switch speaker cables at the back of your mains to the systemyou will be listening too? I used to do that when my 2-channel system was tubes. In that case you need a sub with two inputs if...
  2. Re: Subwoofer setup with AVR and stereo amp

    Check to see if your SVS has two separate inputs, my PC13 Ultra does. Use the input with no crossover for the receiver and the crossover input for your integrated.

    If not, I'd leave the sub on...

    Re: Picked Up A Transport

    I can add an album to the cue and play it in it's entirety but to my surprise it did feel different going over and loadng the disc, sitting down and hitting play, maybe nostalgia for the ritual, who...
  4. Re: Known Factory wiring fault in SOME McIntosh MC611 monobloc amps

    Something I remember being told by an insider recently and how manufacturers sometimes might deal with an issue.

    Picked Up A Transport

    I thought it might be nice to have a transport to have around for playing CD's or if someone brought one over to listen. It takes a good 5 to 10 minutes to rip, or, if my internet went down etc. It...
  6. Re: Does size matter? Capacitors - few big vs many smaller

    My amp 532h is one that has banks of small caps, typical Levinson amps use the large can type. I need to find the white paper but going from memory the small caps has something to do with speed and...
  7. Re: Known Factory wiring fault in SOME McIntosh MC611 monobloc amps

    Mental distress, is a good point. I think most of us go a bit crazy when something isn't right in our system.

    I know when my amp breaks and has to go into service I lose my mind and start buying...
  8. Re: Thoughts on Harman Future/present electronics

    To my knowledge Levinson is only OEM in the auto sound but it's their bread & butter.

    George the 536 & 534 are really good, IMO.

    If you look at used listings you cantell Levinson may be losing...

    Man, I know you guys love you some Mac but give the guy a break. He's only sharing his experience and information.

    I suspect no recall means the issue is limited or unknown as to how extensive. ...

    Re: Pass XA160.8 vs Pass X600.8 ....

    Curious if you had the 350.8 checked out. That doesn't sound like typical Pass behavior. I remember Mike saying the 350.8 was the sweetspot in the line, that could have only been referring to sound...

    I really had a tough time thinking of a title. It is just my thought or caution.

    Re: Jeff Fritz on Magico Vs Revel

    Has anyone heard both? It would be an interesting shoot out. I do like the Magico sound.

    I have yet to hear the Revel 328b but I have not been overly impressed with their new direction in sound.

    Re: Legacy Audio?

    A good friend has Legacy, he had the Focus SE for years and now has theV. I thought the Focus were outstanding for the money, meaning they could hold their own with other brands $20k models.

  16. Re: Review: Cambridge Audio Edge A Integrated Amplifier: A Complete Package

    2019 Axpona Cambridge was hyped on their Edge series. They had the Edge pieces driving a smallish set of B&W. I wasn't impressed, it sounded like the Cambridge sound if yu're into that. Maybe side...
  17. Re: What do you hear different using Balanced XLR Cables?

    Hi-fi manufacturers that do not use differentially balanced circuits typically might offer a XLR input/output for convenience but I doubt any audible difference could be heard between the two as the...

    Anyone else notice this?

    Recently I noticed when I open Conductor Tidal is not showing as an option. If I go into settings check streaming options then close settings Tidal will then appear where it normally shows.
  19. Re: Danny Richie tears apart the Dynaudio Special 40s

    I find this very surprising. I wonder if it's du to the current ownership. I believe 3.4's would be under the original Dynaudio though, depends on which version I suppose.

    I've heard stories of...

    The Esoteric and TEAC relation has always baffled me. They are opposite ends of the market.

    When I worked audio we used to sell their cassette decks and some were very good. The rest of their...

    That had to be maddening. Thankfully, your dealer and tech listened to you and helped to locate the issue.

    Re: Yamaha M-80, First big amp

    What is your budget for a preamp and what sources will you use for listening?

    An older Conrad Johnson preamp used would be a nice match. Adcom on the used market is a good value. Quite a few...
