    Those look very promising! And they are wood not poly styrene which is very flammable and does not reflect as well. i bet the evening was super fun. Greats folks!

    RIP Jeff Beck

    A true loss. Had the immense pleasure of seeing him in Atlanta back in April at the Coca-Cola Roxy the show was incredible. His performance was perfect. He will be greatly missed.

    Wilson Audio Chronosonic XVX First Impressions

    The XVX need room to breath and do deserve top shelf everything. I auditioned them in 2 locations (2 different states in US). The first audition was poor do to the room and a very poor cobbled together choice of electronics. The second audition was spectacular with a great room and very good...

    New Audigon Service Fee

    thanks Ron, but i dont think my history can be dumped from AG? if it were me I would not believe someone telling me to check out history from another website so in a way I feel tied to a AG regardless

    New Audigon Service Fee

    The uniqueness of audiogon is that each party is rated and has history, including comments and what was bought and sold. I have had 100% satisfactory purchases and selling due to the fact that I can look at someone’s history and feel very comfortable in dealing with them. There is no other...

    Dedicated audio room build thread aka The Big Dig

    Hi, this track starts with a very low note from the largest organ in Europe (from my understanding). It feels like a train going by through my armrests and in my chest. i asked Jim Smith what he thought of the very low bass impact. He likes subs even with very...

    Resources for Building an Ideal Listening Room

    a harsh tone ceasar although i agree on some points. i will definitely say the mbl extremes need a very good room. i auditioned them in houston. the room there did not do them justice. oddly enough they had a defined sweet spot. the bass was just overpowering the room. they did provide...

    Transitioning from Electrostatics???

    Try to listen to speakers than have an AMT tweeter. Super fast and incredible detail. it solved things for me. I had Maggie 20.7 and loved that wall of music but wanted more punch. I really liked the ML 15a, plenty of bass and you likely can get a deal on them. I also liked the Duo XD too...

    Dedicated audio room build thread aka The Big Dig

    had Mike Burns from WolfSong Audio come by today to further measure the room. to recap: the room is 12’ 2” high, 21’ wide and 31’ long. QRD diffusers are 16” deep. setup guru Jim Smith finalized the speaker position. The speakers are now almost mid room. Jim was very pleased with the outcome...
