  4. Re: C12000 2-Channel Solid State and Vacuum Tube Preamplifier

    Looks to be really versatile.

    A few companys offer the tube or SS option in same component. Cary does it and Peachtree used to. I have mixed feelings, it's nice to have that choice but I'd think...

    Re: Looking for new amps Classe / Gryphon

    Just me but it seems the less components in your path the better, your pre/amp shouldn't need a tube buffer, nor should you want one. I'm using Mark Levinson and the highs are pristine with no...

    Re: Decided I Needed to Go for Tube Preamp

    Jack needs two XLR outs on the preamp to go to power and headphone amps.

    Jack the Coda 07x bested an equivalent priced TRL tube preamp. There are solid state options if interested. The 07x was...

    Re: Looking for new amps Classe / Gryphon

    Magico sounds better than JBL is a matter of opinion and it's a fool's opinion to spend $40k on speakers with afraction of that on the electronics. Seems I remember you using some pretty expensive...

    Re: new speakers, with Humbolt

    Wilson to Klipsch, I wouldn't think so. If you want horns look at Volti, Sadurni or JBL. Klipsch can be fun but IMO lack the refinement of those mentioned. And, a step backward from where you are...

    I would love to hear the 1.0 power amp. Anyone dare to describe the Constellation sound or make a comparison to another brand?

    Re: American Made: Audio Research I/50

    I feel like I am definitely missing something. It hasn't been that long since the 600M's, ARC was well represented at last Axpona.

    Re: new speakers, with Humbolt

    I haven't heard them with Rock but they do sound good. They did have a model around $30k USD.On an all Tidal system I could have sat an listened to piano all day long.

    Re: Capital Audiofest Pictures and Comments

    Despite the sensitivity rating on some of the JBL they really need some current to come alive. With that being said I'd love to hear mine with a VAC integrated, to see the result.

    Just some thoughts based on your taste in music. Have you considered any Focal?

    An efficient 8 ohm load and I would think meets your needs, look at some of the Legacy models. Some have powered...
  21. Re: German Physiks Speakers or Other Omni-Directional Designs

    MBL would be another option. Perhaps Ohm Walsh but I'm not familiar with them.

    I have heard MBL and GP but I' not able to answer your questions. Each only with their own brand amps.

    I'm not...

    Anyone hear the Merrill Audio room? I would like to hear the Element amplifiers. The price is up a lot from the prior series but are said to be quite an improvement in SQ.

    Re: It's Time For A New Preamplifier

    I vote for the Pass to get that same brand synergy. I have not heard the XP12 but I loved my XP10.

    You might also look at Coda, I believe their entry is around $3k give or take, not sure the...

    Re: Capital Audiofest Pictures and Comments

    My thanks as well for the reporting. I have also seen some photos on social media, I agree Aurender looks to be well represented, as well as some using Lampizator and more than one with VAC.
