    Re: Magico M2 SP review and Measurements

    The right speaker died immediately. The left speaker was weakened in that it died shortly after getting the right speaker back from repair.

    Re: Magico M2 SP review and Measurements

    I was trying to find out how loud they would play before they started to distort. As mentioned, they never distorted. They certainly were impressive.

    Re: Shunyata Sigma NR v2 power cord

    Why not try it on each piece of gear, and keep it on the one that sounds best?

    Re: Magico M2 SP review and Measurements

    Actually, the issue was no matter how loud the speakers played they sounded good. Until they stopped.

    Re: Magico M2 SP review and Measurements

    My Magico S5 came alive when I added a second dedicated line for the amps so that each amp could reach its 1200 watts without tripping a breaker. Of course, I then managed to break each speaker,...

    Re: Leaving Components On Continuously

    I keep my Lumin X1, and Pass XP-22 on 24/7. The amps I turn off via the front power switch, but leave the rear power switch on. I turn the amps on when I go to bed if I plan on listening the next...

    Re: Best shipping boxes

    The two large, wooden crates for my speakers are in the garage. The more I look at them the more I think of getting rid of them.

    Re: FTC to kill amplifier rule?

    This was posted on another site, but it is related to this discussion. Not sure what the original post is about since I don't watch videos posted to a forum.

  13. Re: Does anyone use OFFLINE mode in either Tidal or Qobuz?

    Are you guys saying that for Tidal and other streaming services that you can download an album? If so then how many albums can you download; 10, 100 or as many as you can put on your hard drive?

    Re: Lumin X1 Fiber Optic Network Discussions

    Wouldn’t any noise in the signal also be converted into the light stream, and then reconverted back into noise?

    Re: Lumin 2000 song limit

    Because of the 2000 song limit I have been deleting albums that aren’t really rocking me. Now I am at 1941 songs, but at some point I will hit 2000 since I buy two albums every week from HDTracks. ...

    Re: Unpacking the Shunyata Everest 8000

    I suspect there is more to this than what we are reading here. If Shunyata won’t sell, or let anyone ship, to Australia then there must be a reason.

    Re: Limit X1 Power Supply Question

    When it is time to stop listening I pause the song, and turn off the amps. For both my S1 and X1, I always leave them on.

    Re: What was your first high-end component ever?

    Other than the AR-XB turntable, I don't remember the electronics from the 70s, but the speakers were Pioneer CS-A700. I remember saving my money from a $1.80/hour minimum wage job to buy them.

    Re: How much quality is on a master tape?

    R2R is okay for background music, but absolutely sucks when you want to listen to songs 3, 7, and 10 (or whatever combination). I sold my R2R in the late 70s, and have never thought of replacing it.

    Re: Should I upgrade or not.

    I look at power (dedicated 20 amp lines) and power cables as the foundation for any stereo or HT. Build a good foundation and then any gear will work at its best.
