  3. A perfect excuse to get solar put through your house so your not listening to this beautiful amp while snacking on a tightly rationed box of Kibble once your electricity bill has been paid! GLWTS LPG

  5. Um............ Have you heard any large horn systems? As Ian says you can't change the laws of physics. Horns that go low are large. Horns that don't go too low are still large. You can use the corner of the room to extend the mouth of the horn to get more extension but they will still be large. I personally don't think "a lot of this esoteric HI-Fi is basically a grift" at all. You get some things that seem poor value for money. A good horn system can be a amazing experience and this holds true for a lot of esoteric Hi Fi. A great horn or high efficien
  6. I just wanted to thank everyone for this thread! Threads like these with fantastic contributions from so many people are one of the things that make our community and Stereonet such a wonderful oasis from the all the crap that sometimes goes on in the world (Covid i'm pointing at you). LPG
  7. What a great for sale ad Roman, my hat off to you! Super detailed post, fastidious repair work and highlighting the strengths and tiny negative of the sound (Nothings perfect but this would be closer than most). If you don't want to go for state of the art separates this single box unit looks beautiful, is built like a tank, should keep or increase in value over time and will create beautiful music every time you listen to it. A wonderful heirloom player for someone. LPG
  8. They're designed to be recessed in the mids. Its one of the things that give them they're impressive dynamic range. It also increases the spatiality and creates more of a mid hall perspective for the orchestral music they were designed for. They also use cheap drivers and have a difficult load for the amplifier. Along with the bass driver pushing a stiff transmission line full of air and a heavy passive radiator it makes the speaker a absolute ball breaker. They are super sensitive to room placement - way more than a regular speaker. The multiple cheap midrange and tweeter dri
  9. Haha! Couldn't agree more. They are super hard to drive. I have mint updated Obelisks in one of my systems and also had a pair of Arcs that i recently moved on. Large class A Krell is also a very nice match. LPG
  10. Jonathan who owns JD Audio designs and manufactures Dynavector (power amps and pre amps, not the cartridges). They also imports Shahinian which he has been importing since the early 1980's. The amps he designed he builds because the Shahinians are notoriously super difficult to drive. LPG
  11. ........... and the pcm 1704 which I'm loving at the moment.
  12. Because more often than not that annoying little silver disc still sounds better played on a transport than without. Annoying but each time myself and most of my friends think we can get rid of the transport and go direct it ends up sounding worse. Makes no sense since you would think a solid state drive with content on it would be so much better but that is usually not the case. Tidal etc can sound good and gives you amazing convenience and access to music but its just not as good (in my opinion). With the hard drive content it depends a lot on the content. Lets say you or
  13. Haha! i didn't read the entire thread. If i had i wouldn't needed to have written what i wrote after reading your message David. I said pretty much the same thing. The only thing i would add to this is: CDMO - Can't be used as a transport. It was used in the earliest 14 bit players. CDM1 based players. Great place to start and they last pretty much forever with the glass zeiss lasers and big hall effect motors and full metal mechanisms. When you read how these are built and loot at one you assume they are top of the hill but many people think the CDM4 plastic
  14. My experience has been that the transport makes as big (or almost as big) a difference in the sound of cd than the dac. Your dac is pretty good and your headphones are very revealing (HD800 modded and Utopia) so you will hear the difference of a better transport. Your handmade cables may be the weak link also or they may be stellar. I don't think there are too many new "affordable to even quite expensive" that would hold a candle to some of the better old school transports that were designed purely for Cd. My experience with HD800 with various types of mods were super revealing and system
