    My visit to CH Precision

    either of them will drive anything. The best choice is always the one that sounds better. One would expect the M10 to best the previous amplifier/amplifiers. This as far as I have been told is going to be the case. We shall see shortly but my expectations is the M10 will do that and handily.

    best cost no object, cables

    Thanks G! I agree with you. The Lacorde cables are truly excellent. I don't like the word best since it really doesn't mean anything its just hype speak. I have tried with the CH and my speakers MIT, Transparent, AQ, and Nordost V2 and Odin2. All of these are good companies and make quality...

    Axpona Canceled Until August

    I just booked and paid for my sleeping rooms for Axpona 2021. I am optimistic that we will be able to gather and have a HI FI show again. For many small manufacturers and distributors these are very important in getting our products seen and heard. This is even more important in these times...

    Just for the record I personally am not a fan of bi-wiring. I like bi-amping particularly vertically bi-amping speakers with identical amplifiers. This however isn't required or even necessary but like many things in audio what's required really isn't the point or the end game. The speakers...

    Understanding how the speaker works and how the tweeter is set in the tractic Flare mounting it is important in my room sitting where I do that the tweeters be aimed in this way. I spent a lot of time doing this and getting the tweeter height and angle perfectly aligned. The speakers shown at...

    Nordost Odin series 2 speaker cables in excellent condition, plastic still on the wooden pieces. Retail Price is 48,099 for the pair. I took these in recently from a client who is the original owner. Used in air conditioned , smoke, pet and child free room. Work perfectly and look like new...

    I worked out an interesting tool to help align the speakers and to get the tweeter height and the speakers level perfectly using laser and this target which is not positioned where i use it but rather where it can be seen. Audio bullseye :)

    My visit to CH Precision

    I know you are poking fun Howie but CH is not one of the companies that grinds it owners through changing the gear every year or two. They are not discontinuing anything just adding a new state of the art amp and preamp. The thing i like about them and so do my clients os if you want to upgrade...

    THe Bending Wave driver is unique. It is one of a kind and does things that no other driver can do. It is a single full range device from 160hz to over 30,000 hz. It has no phase issues so it is singular in its ability to be PURE. Having said that Oliver has used this device and the technology...

    Thank you Mike. They are special and do require a serious commitment to bring them to the max. I have a client who has bi amped them with a full CH Precision set up including pre and phono all with X-1 supplies and a full Gobel Lacorde cable set up including PC and a great room. It doesn't get...

    I was brought up with TAS and my mentors were HP, John Dahlquist, Arnie Nudel, Bill Z Johnson . I make no secret of what I believe and what I think a system should sound like. I want it to sound like music...period I also believe that most people have not heard a properly set up system and...

    I don't believe there is a wrong choice here. I have clients that own both and they are all happy with their systems and their individual choices. I think the room, musical preferences and gear owned or planned to own make a difference in the final decision however they all make beautiful music...

    Oliver builds different models for a reason. The reasons are people have different room sizes, budgets and demands. I think lots of people would love to own a Majestic or a Noblesse but don't have the financial ability or the space to put those speakers in. We had the Noblesse last year at 3...

    It is an incredible speaker and will work in a wide variety of rooms and with a wide selection of quality gear. I personally love this speaker it works so well in my soundroom. Can't wait to show it off at the shows when they start again. I believe people will be amazed!

    Elliot's list will be updated by Friday this week 9/8/2020 and now is over 540 songs long. I love some of the new items added particularly in love with Patty Larkin that my friend turned me on too. She's amazing and the recordings are very well done.
