    What SPECIFICALLY is better or different about the Wadax Design? How do these design choices manifest in better sound?

    why is MBL different? please answer specifically People claim msb the best in the world. if msb is the best, or one of the best, why doesn’t it get along with MBL? At $60k and $120k , the best should at least be able to work, personal tastes aside esoteric can, as that dealer is using...

    The MBLDAC had a plain streaming card that was updated on their dac... surely "worse" than the stuff msb sells.... msb should have killed this 15 year old dac :)

    on mbl 101; compared to mbl reference dac.... similar results when comparing msb to other dacs in too many scenarios to list - msb is dynamically feeble sorry that your feelings are hurt, msb fanboys... additionally , the dealer with an online forum had similar results with msb on mbl ... he...

    A Bright Shining Lie…Why ignoring an inconvenient truth is stifling system performance a blog from Roy Gregory

    Are we only debating amplifiers? Has someone updated their cables to "state of the art", where the bottom end was so robust they needed to add more bass traps and the highs were so well articulated they needed to adjust the room treatments at first reflection points?

    Excellent observation. Those guys are just selling the dream... there is always something better every new issue or post

    In the case of MSB, it was not fully vetted. When I plugged into MBL system, macro and micro dynamics were muted. It sounded dead. Guys are always willing to buy the "dream" :)

    Avantgarde Loudspeakers: Solid-State or Tube Amps

    As far as MBL, and I guess other omni brands also, imaging is diffuse. You can tighten that up a bit, with SMT panels, but it will never be "pin point" as other speaker designs. But then again, you will be messing with the room... As everything in this hobby, it depends on one's preference and...

    Seriously, though, guys... marketing and uber enthusiasm aside, when someone walks into a room and tape is playing, everyone know... ditto with vinyl... If someone were to walk into a room with digital, would they be able to tell it's Wadax? or only guys who have spent many, many, many hours...

    I don't really know him, so I can 't broker that for you. But I would suggest you do that. Audio shows get pretty boring... same rooms with same partnering gear. RMAF had whole floors of the same stuff for years, and people stopped coming

    I don't know the third guy, but the other guys strike me as just hype artists that ramble on and mislead people

    If guys were honest about the trade-offs and downsides of gear, instead of hyping things up and misleading people, I would be nicer also. :)

    Avantgarde Loudspeakers: Solid-State or Tube Amps

    I am usually a tube guy, but those 8 watt SS amps Avantgarde has built for the new Trios didn't make me crave for tubes. At $35K or whatever they are asking for them, it's not pocket change... but the good news is one can phase them in, when ready... Curious how these Avantgarde amps would...
