    Doctor says my upgradeitis may be in remission

    It all started a few months ago when I decided I needed a new cartridge for my record playing machine. I figured that would make me happy for awhile, but just like any addict it awoke the beast in me and the chase was on. I figured maybe I just need a new phono stage to go with my cartridge...

    I decided to go with the Ayre MR-X Monos

    Listened to Mcintosh MC501 Monos, ATMA-SPHERE MA1 MKII.3s, Audio Research Ref-210 Monos and the Ayres MX-R Monos. I can say that using the meters on the Mcintosh was interesting in that they mostly drew 5 watts during my listening but on orchestral music would draw 50 and at times run toward...

    My Classe CA-400 go boom!!!!

    Well after many years of faithful service, my Classe CA-400 went silent. So sad, as I was listening to the Sheffield Drum Record at volume that would put me a few feet away from the drum kit. At first, I thought I lost one of my Summits, but after swapping amps I was happy to find out that the...

    Any thoughts about Summits on thick carpet

    Though I have not done anything yet, I am wondering what effect my very plush and thick carpet has on the downward facing woofer. I am wondering if the speaker is better off on a solid surface. When playing at higher volumes the woofer does interact with the floor itself. This creates an...
