    Acapella Audio Arts - the Sphaeron Excalibur loudspeaker

    The site also says 4x15" woofers, not 18"... when you say "the active version with the four 18 inch woofer per channel...is there a super-big active version of the Excalibur that is different from the Excalibur on the website (which by the way does not seem to have been updated regularly so...

    What amplifiers work best with Rockports? What have you heard?

    Great stuff! Would love to read more about your impressions of that system...was it Arnies? In any event would particularly appreciate any more color you can provide on the CH/Arrakis combination than what you felt was the 'tube amp presentation'. Thanks!

    Rockport Technologies Avior Speakers with a stunning stack of 6 REL Gibraltar G1 subwoofers.

    What an awesome photo...Lord of the Rings no less! that must be a fantastic experience! If they ever get a chance to watch Aquaman, that is one of a select few move soundtrack references for me. Transformers is another.

    Gryphon Colosseum stopped working

    Fantastic...i was just reading up on the Niagara 7000...but for the source components. Did not think it was possible to consider it for a Gryphon...more food for thought...

    Gryphon Colosseum stopped working

    Congrats and welcome home! I think Gryphon to wall is still safest overall (not voltage spike reasons). The Gryphon will also shut if it senses too little voltage during peaks. But check with Gryphon.I melted a socket 10 yrs ago of a power conditioner that I was told by the dealer of the power...

    Quiet Rock

    Yes, we looked into that metal internal which they do here (with concrete)...we were going to take the concrete/roc wall and add a sheet of aluminum separately, but in the end realized that with somewhere on the order of 45 db, and the rest of the entire house being solid masonry (12 inches...

    We use 1 inch thick high density gypsum (Gyproc board by British Gypsum) which is used for security as well as sound attenuation. Excellent stuff.

    X1 with 2 board vs 2 X1

    Hi Gian60, You have far more experience than I but personally, my own approach would be if you think the fundamental design/quality of the L10 is higher, buy it...and then build on the L10 as you go. Rather than buy the best configuration of L1...and then in the future keep thinking about the...

    Can one find realism in box speakers that cost less than $150K after experiencing dynamics of horns and horn-type speakers?

    Isolation Transformer and Balanced Power versus PS Audio Regenerator

    Wouldnt power conditioning to the outlet mean you are placing the conditioner at main distribution panel...and then distributing from the panel to the outlet. Whereas 'from the outlet' means there is NO power conditioning at the main distribution panel...but someone is plugging in a power...

    Isolation Transformer and Balanced Power versus PS Audio Regenerator

    Thanks Ron...so you anticipate buying a Torus unit that plugs into the audio room wall...and then you plug your front end into it? Which unit are you looking at?

    Isolation Transformer and Balanced Power versus PS Audio Regenerator

    Look forward to your decision here. Wonder if you might end up with both. Balanced at incoming power to the house (for the circuits running to your audio room), and then P20 in the room for sources.

    Awesome! Looking forward to hearing it soon when it arrives! Meanwhile, I just picked up some music i heard literally in the street in Camden, London...and we asked the girl playing it. I think she was genuinely into the fact that we would come up to her to ask... Sampa the Great 'Blue Boss'...
