Often times there are either recommendations for changes (like updating a capacitor in the crossover) or desires to modify our speakers (like remove a crossover) or to have some other audio equipment modification done, and many of us ask: “who could do this for me?”.
This thread is to collect...
Has anyone ever purchased any equipment from this outfit? I see that they have a few used and new ML pieces, just wondered if they were reputable?
I don't have a subscription, just want to check the current going rate on a Musical Fidelity A 5.5. Thanks in advance!
Glorious Sunday morning here in Denver - with rolling the clocks back last night we all have an extra hour of weekend.
I'm spending that time listening to some of the vinyl I'd picked up at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. Nat King Cole and his Trio "After Midnight" and The Anthony Wilson Nonet...
Just saw this announcement about Sony 4K Cinema Media Player: http://www.slashgear.com/sony-fmp-x1-4k-media-player-coming-over-the-summer-07276787/
Seriously? How old is BluRay? Long in the tooth already? Why on earth would we need more resolution than that? I have a 10'...
Bought a couple of preamps to play with - I was getting bored, as you do.
One of them is an absolute peach. Mobile pic only - but I rate it quite considerably better than the EAR868PL I had a while back, however it doesn't have a phono stage like the EAR did. I'm not sensationalising here - it...
Anyone have any opinion about the Panamax power conditioners? I am looking at the 5300mp. Waiting for a better price. But if u have an opinion would appreciate it. They seem to get decent reviews online.
So far, they're not slated to arrive in North America, but for nostalgia's sake, have a peek at these :D
I'm not sure that at these prices I'd be able to justify them when there are so many other options, but maybe after a listen.
So I recently read the most current Stereophile (May 2013 / Vol 36 / No. 5) magazine and came upon this in Robert J. Reina's review of the Audio Research Reference 75 amplifier. No slam on folks that like AR gear. Here are a couple of notable quotes.
Not only was the 75 capable of rendering...
Would it be a good marriage?

Read this article and thought it was funny and true so just want to share with you guys:
You Know You’re An Audiophile When…
I think all of us has at least one, if not some, of these 'qualities' :)
It's from The Hub of Agon, not a sale post, so moderators please dont delete it.
I've looking for ways to have some type of lighting that pulsates in sync with my speakers and came across this little DIY project:
It seems like it is nothing more than a few...
Would love to see some Martin Logan folks come out for this.
Doug - out
Hi, I’m hoping to gain help from the group to take maximum advantage of my Martin Logan collection. My ‘dream’ home located in coastal NC will have a Great Room approximately 18 x 25 in size (10’ ceilings, vaulted to 13’ in center) with a Martin Logan 5.1 system – Summit, Stage, Fresco I, Descent...
Looks like there are finally some great materials sciences innovations that might translate into future higher-performance ESL transducers.
As described in this article, an initial headset prototype using a Graphene diaphragm delivered pretty good results without even trying to engineer anything...
Hi All --
Just thought I would post my thoughts here... I had a chance to listen to the Wilson Alexandria XLF (195K) the other day. The shop was running them off of the Mac 1.2Kw monoblocks with Mac front end. They also had an SME turntable that I 'forced' them to hook up which had a koetsu...
Looks like I have now definately (at last) found myself a pair of Duetta Sigs for an almost complete re-build. I am going to get all the drivers replaced with Graz drivers - bass and MRTs, and have some work done of the crossovers. They'll also be resprayed to make them look pretty much like new.
OK we have this thread on a UK forum, and in my opinion it works extremely well. You won't have to wait until Sunday morning to post something!:D
I notice a lot of recommendations are being put in various threads - this is what we need to consolidate them.
First up is this. This is incredibly...
I am sure this topic has arisen before but I didn't find anything in the direction when searching. My setup:
• PS Audio Perfectwave Power Plant
• PS Audio Perfectwave DAC + Bridge
• 2x MC275
• alternatively: Accuphase 407
• 2x Martin Logan Summit X
So, we meet with the architect on monday and will be looking to custom build our home in Dallas, TX as we hope to close on the house build on March 20. I have a preliminary drawing for a 14x20 foot media room in the first floor away from the master bedroom.
I was initially thinking I was...

If so what did you go for?
