    LINN Klimax DS3 vs Lumin S1

    Ignoring format playing possibilities, has anyone compared these two streamers in their system. I've heard the Klimax briefly in my system when my speakers were being setup, but I've not heard the Lumin. Big price difference. My Wilson setup guy says the Linn compares very favorably to some of...

    Measuring basics - microphone/computer questions

    From what I can see Jim Smith first determines the seating position that'll be out of room nodes, then places speakers for maximum musicality.

    Wilson & ARC for me...

    I'll tell the tale of my return to Hi-Fi later, but here's my latest: Last year, about this time, my wife was told she'd worked her way out of a job, but there was a position in Portland they wanted her to take. I got the news, and a "Honey, I'm going to be living in corporate housing in...

    Einstein Turntable's Choice (dual mono) vs ARC REF2SE

    Is there anyone in the crowd who has compared Einstein Turntables's Choice (dual mono version) to REF2SE? Or, who has heard the TTC period? I have this phono-pre and Mikey Fremer once considered in his reference group of phono-amps, circa 2007 or so. I'm curious what others who've heard it have...
