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?
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
Kharma Fanboy here...
Loved the Kharma line since its inception. The Grand Ceramique was awesome as was everything in the Exquisite line I've heard.
The message was all about the music. Goosebump inducing every time.
Has anyone heard the Enigma Veyrons? How do they compare with the...

I have found a pair of rare speakers that I have been looking for for years located near Amsterdam.
Unfortunately the owner will not take on the task of crating, palletizing and shipping them to me.
I recently stated looking at bookshelf speakers for my bedroom. I am very impressed with the new KEF LS50 Metas, also thinking about some of the classics from Sonus Faber and Magico, however, my budget could extend up quite away further North than these speakers.
Any opinions on...
As my CD collection grows, I'm running out of conventional storage and the overflow goes into small moving boxes.
Has anyone found a clever storage method for CD a'la Milk cartons for LPs?
I have to admit, the best amplifiers, I've ever heard personally are the Audionet Heisenbergs. They would be my destination amplifiers if I was able to pull the trigger today.
However, after hearing the exceptional efforts from Stavros Danos of Aries Creat, I would have to hear the Ianus...
I've heard the Soulution 760 DAC on two or three different occasions. (twice in dedicated systems and once I think at a show.)
I've travelled extensively from Chicago and down the Eastern Seaboard and have heard many of the contenders for best (the DCS Vivaldi, the Trinity, the MSB Select; the...
Cartridge/Tonearm/Turntable and phono stage if you'd like.
The best I've ever heard was the Continuum Audio Labs Setup with the Cobra Arm; although I can't recall the cartridge or phono stage.
It was at the CES back in the '00s. Magic. It made me unhappy with my system for months..
I'm looking to buy a quality HDMI Cable to use in my HT setup.
I currently have a SONY UBP-X800 feeding 4K HQR signals to my beloved 65" SONY 4K HDR OLED TV.
I've tried and liked the AQ Diamond, but would like to audition others in the $1500 or lower price range.
Eventually I'll install my...
So over the last three years, I've spent hundreds of hours trying to tune the bass response of my System. I originally started out with a pair of Rockport Cygnus and slowly added two, then four, then finally six Rel Gibraltar G1s (connected with high level inputs but no variable phase...
I've ordered a MiniDSP 2x4hd to play with. I'm going to play with only the crossover fuction as well as the timing/delay functions.
It will sit between my DAC/PRE and one pair of RCAs going to my mains and the other pair going to my subs.
I'm hoping/expecting better integration between my subs...
Over the years, I have amassed a large collection of CDs SACDs DVD-As etc. Some of them have seen better days and few are perfect surface wise. Is there a method to resurface some of the worst ones, some of which are irreplaceable?
The argument is that high level inputs to one's subwoofer(s) are necessary to keep the character of the mains amplifier(s) to the subs.
The argument seems legitimate, but I have never tried low level or LFE inputs. Any thoughts on this?
These seen to be best effort analog/digital recordings.
Hi Fidelity Poland likes them, but they're very expensive, and the sound bytes seem very bass heavy.
Anyone tried these out? I'd like feedback before greenbacks?
Been on a Trane kick for the past few weeks. Thinking of buying the Hi Res reissues, but don't want to throw money away I have OP vinyl and early release CDs.
What do people think the best releases of Coltrane are?
I think SOTA Solid State gear has come a long way sonically in the past decade, but I'm not convinced the same is true of Tube designs.
Lots of big tube designs have evolved with auto biasing and other tricks, but they sound essentially the same to me as they did twenty or more years ago.
