  1. Re: Audioquest Mythical Creatures Analog Interconnects

    Listening to Yeol Eum Son playing Mozart solo piano on the Firebirds, and they're quite nice, quite pleasant to listen to. That "wonky" noise component seems to have abated so it's likely it was some...

    Re: Lumin P1 vs. X1

    It is a killer product. Listening to it right now...love it.
  3. Re: Audioquest Mythical Creatures Analog Interconnects

    Ha, not likely Jon, as I purchased my full set of Alpha V2 interconnects (ICs) and my pair of Alpha V2 speaker cables just in Q4 of last year...LOL. And, they're pretty darn nice. I may purchase a...
  4. Re: Audioquest Mythical Creatures Analog Interconnects

    It's way too early to do any accurate comparisons or form any conclusions. From the get-go, they're quite nice, no question. They have very good detail and a large, immersive soundstage. "Inner...
  5. Re: Audioquest Mythical Creatures Analog Interconnects

    Here's a pic of the Firebird XLRs. Having three individually insulated and sheathed cables is a bit odd and makes the dressing of the cables a bit "bulkier"...

  6. Re: Audioquest Mythical Creatures Analog Interconnects

    Stephen Mejias sent me the pricing when arranging for me to demo the cables:

    ThunderBird
    US Retail: $2,900/1m (RCA); $3,900/1m (XLR)

    FireBird
    US Retail: $5,500/1m (RCA); $6,900/1m (XLR)

    Just in the interests of accuracy here, "Quality" is not the result of where something is manufactured, only how. It's not constrained by geographical boundaries, it essentially comes down to two...
  8. Re: Audioquest Mythical Creatures Analog Interconnects

    I've got two sets of Firebird here...RCA and XLR; they arrived the other day and I've been letting them settle for 48 hours as they just came off the logisitics truck. I listened to the RCAs last...

    Lukasz of Lampi says the Horizon is the "bastard son of the Baltic 3", which speaks to how good the Baltic 3 is...
  10. Re: Intriguing inquiry, are floor-stand speakers always better than active speakers?

    Last but not least, we're now figuring out that some of the reasons that "digital components" or digital component interfaces have historically had a reputation for not sounding as good in high-end...
  11. Re: Intriguing inquiry, are floor-stand speakers always better than active speakers?

    Now, to extend that somewhat further, one of the advantages of a dual-mono design is that noise on the ground plane of one channel is not "interconnected" to any noise on the ground planes of the...
  12. Re: Intriguing inquiry, are floor-stand speakers always better than active speakers?

    Just in the interests of accuracy here, when you connect the components of a system together with a set of interconnects or speaker cables, all their individual circuits are all now...

    Re: Please pray for our little Marleigh

    Randy,
    Marleigh is absolutely beautiful and I am so relieved to hear she doesn't have cancer. My best wishes for her continuing to feel better.

    I've supported two adopted cats that had complex...

  15. Re: New Venom (or replacement to) line coming in 2021?

    I'm not an employee, they are a client for some occasional commercial product photography I do for them. Just as they are a client for the two other commercial photographers they work with, as well.
  16. Re: New Venom (or replacement to) line coming in 2021?

    Yeah, let me know that goes for you. It made a BIG difference when I swapped all the system's "networked audio gear" in the remote server room (i.e. Roon Core, Pace router, EtherREGEN and its LPS)...
  17. Re: New Venom (or replacement to) line coming in 2021?

    Yeah...it's REALLY good. I've got the unit that was sent to me for the commercial photography for the product brochure. So, I had it set up for photo, did all the shots and edits in C1 and PS, and...

    Re: Lumin P1 vs. X1

    Yup! No high-source impedance leakage current to result in threshold jitter and impact...timing errors. Which our brains are capable of distinguishing down to in the picosecond range (and which is...

    Re: Lumin P1 vs. X1

    I think the thing for me, Mike, is that I value how well...Lumin thinks things through, and then executes at a very high level. These guys have just got it goin' on.

    Honestly, I could have the...

    Re: Lumin P1 vs. X1

    Both USB and "copper" Ethernet cables can have a notable impact on sound quality, and both can pass high-source impedance leakage current (usually from switch-mode power supplies). Fiber cannot pass...
  21. Re: New Venom (or replacement to) line coming in 2021?

    I'm going to purchase two of them, one for the music server room and one for the home theatre set-up. 👍

    Re: Lumin P1 vs. X1

    Hi Remi,
    I've not had the opportunity to audition the Lumin X1, but I have the P1 here for review, and I am very impressed with it. The key difference between them is that the P1 is also a...
