    Cheap solid state stereo power amp to drive 13a's for ocasional HT use (to save tube life of main amp)

    I looked at them, still new tech for home audio. Good ones are very pricey. The tech is proven though. Hence the crown xli 1500. Check the used markets for a deal. Class d is probably my next amp. Benefits far outweigh any drawbacks for me.

    2021 new gen Apple tv 4k Dolby Atmos Problems

    Interesting post, been following for some time now. I have never been able to run my ht setup in Dolby with my Apple TV . Either the latest generation or the last one. Just running in 7 channel stereo on my Yamaha 2000 reciever(used as a preamp/decoder) just figured that’s just the way it is...

    Cheap solid state stereo power amp to drive 13a's for ocasional HT use (to save tube life of main amp)

    +1 on the Adcom 555, I used one for years on my stats. Accoustat, ml areius( I think. , I have to many) clarity, and original cinema. Recently using a crown xli 1500 with no problems. Sounds great for now. Probably will upgrade in the future, when we are done with renovations and outfitting our...

    Obsessive hobbies....

    You are right about panerai. They used modified Swiss and other movements in most of their watches. However, in some of their “works of art” they made their own. You are lucky to have a Pam 50. The prices were at their low about 3 years ago. I almost bought a Pam sub. But got talked out of if...

    Obsessive hobbies....

    That’s what happens today. Most watches built today use a throwaway movement that costs less than $10. Exceptions abound however they are very expensive. Look at products like Rolex, panerai, Patek Philippe, blancpan, and several others. The upshot with a fine timepiece is that it will last for...

    Obsessive hobbies....

    Wow, what a setup. I’m a gamer and I have never seen any thing like this, well done. With regards to the watch making questions. I am a retired master jeweler and I have had the opportunity to attend some watchmaker classes. Now days it’s all done with very specialized machinery. There are a...

    Best US Site to Sell Used Audio Equipment?

    You’re right. Never thought of that. “ no power cord, box or manual “ is a real tip off. Thanks for the advice.

    Martin Logan 13A's and a subwoofer pairing question.

    Bdh55, how did you add a subwoofer to your center channel? I’m using a ml cinema center, running off a Rotel amp. Using a Yamaha 2000 reciever as a ht preamp. I have two subs, only using one in ht mode. Having a sub in the center is a great idea. Thanks.

    ESL X and Schiit Aegir

    From what I understand, it has to do with the impedance variations whom the electronics of the crossover. Kinda the same thing as a bridged amp. I really considered their products and a lot of people are happy with them. They are just not my thing, and not worth the risk( amp or speakers). I’m...

    ESL X and Schiit Aegir

    As a long time owner of ml speakers and electrostatic speakers, I would like to inject my 2 cents worth. The comment about “powered” refers to the electrostatic panel( it’s charged by electricity). I have found that while lower power amps will work in general. For example I started with a quad...

    Ciao from Italy

    Thanks for the suggestions, once the renovations on our house are over, I’ll try it. Right now my wife and I are living in our living room. My hi fi is barely usable. Can’t even see it!!! Where are you in Italy, my wife wants to go see where her grandparents grew up. It’s on the eastern...

    Ciao from Italy

    One note, with your speakers, you could go to a marble counter top supplier and have them cut two slabs to fit under your speakers. Put rubber feet under the slabs to prevent damage to the floor. The added mass/weight will cut down on any feedback. Much less expensive than some audio product and...
