    Re: Posting Prices Publicly

    The Audio Industry is a small little business, with some very silly little players in it. They are not sophisticated, for the most part, and are simply trying to survive. Buy something if you want...

    Re: Meitner MA-3 DAC

    ^ that is very good information to have... why these "quirks" aren't immediately noted by the Dealers representing them Ill never know. You literally have to buy it and be disappointed to know.

    Re: *New* Esoteric Grandioso M1X Monos

    Very reasonable assumption for the uninitiated, based solely on the equipment you own, you are not one of the unintiated and you know better. Expect each one of these Monos to retail for $35-$40K...

    Re: New Luxman 595a Limited Edition

    Interesting, but why even bother with a 300 unit production. Its either not all that special/unique or they're going to keep going with production and make some small changes to keep the "limited"...

    Re: Leedh Processing- Unity Gain Settlng

    Incorrect... In option 1 the Lumin is set at 100%... in option 2 your preamp is set at “unity gain”, essentially meaning 100% output in relation to input (as far as I understand it to be)

    I can only assume that this method exists for convenience sake, allowing you to sample the difference in sound between the two while not having to physically remove/disconnect your standalone preamp...

    Re: LUMIN T2 vs. X1

    Coming from some one who has owned both... the X1 is definitely smoother/more nuanced than the T2. The improvements are more noticeable in more expensive and transparent systems. The T2 is the much...

    Upgrade? only you can decide that... but they'll definitely sound different. I have owned the 40.2 Anni. and even those were noticeably different from the standard 40.2's

    Well, didn't realize the photo was that large so had to redact some info.

    The price of either is a non-issue, I even considered buying both but Im getting tired of doing that and then trying to move them. $5K speakers sell much easier than ones at $20k+

    What do you believe the A5 does better than the Bowers, and hopefully, what areas is the Bowers better in?
