While I am really happy with location of my Rel Gibraltar G1s,
I have played with the crossover from 30hz to 80hz.
The differences are not huge to my ear.
Am I using the wrong recordings? What recording(s) should I use?
What do I listen for?
FWIW I heard the Humboldt and the Stern MAX combo, both driving YG speakers at GTT Audio ( Audionet’s North American Distibutor in New Jersey) and I preferred the Humboldt by a wide margin. I had owned the MAXs for several years prior and have now ordered a Humboldt as well as a result of my...
Philharmonie de Paris playing Mahlers 2nd symphony 'Resurrection' at the Symponhie de Paris on September 25th 2021.
A 90 piece orchestra and a 90 voice choir, with 2 soloists and full pipe organ with 32 foot pipes.
We were row J centre, where I took this picture.
There are absolutely no...
I would think posing the question (1v vs 3.5v i/o) to both Nagra and Audionet as to which is 'better' might provide insight. Assuming the Nagra is optimal at the 1v output, the real question is whether the Humboldt's performance may be diminished with lower input voltages.
I think its important to realize the amplifiers being discussed here are all FANTASTIC! I've heard the Thrax, the Dart, the Vitus before deciding to carry the Audionet. For me the neutrality, transparancy, and dynamics of the Audionet gear puts it in the lead for me and my sonic preferences...
I think the Zs are truly amazing, possibly the best 'conventional' speaker I've heard. One integrated amplifier that has not been mentioned that I think would pair wonderfully is the remarkable new(ish) Audionet Humboldt.
Many many dealers in the NJ/NYC city to put on your map.

I have now reached the point where my old 4 high rack won't cut it for our next show.
I need a new 3 high x 2 wide rack:
It needs to have a 250lb/shelf capacity
Adjustable shelves preferred.
Extra large component footprints.
Easy to assemble and disassemble
