  1. nice! I've always liked torbreck wine. Was lucky enough, many years back, to try their Runrig, spectacular! I see that is now $300, so I'm unlikely to try it again πŸ™‚
  2. I've owned a 641a integrated for 12 years and still works fine - Ive hung onto it since the resale is ziltch. I had a 651W, recently sold, which performed flawlessly. I had a DacMagic Plus which worked fine but I upgraded as it seemed a little harsh in the treble, at least with the gear I had at the time. Overall, pretty happy really.
  3. This is, by far, the most polite forum I have been part of and is a big part of why I stayπŸ‘ I believe it is a combination of good moderators and the natural amiability of hifi lovers πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  4. Making an early start, Chirockr, tho I started an hour ago πŸ˜ƒ I can see that's not a drop for the faint of heart, cask strengthπŸ‘
  5. I'm rather interested in this since I have rear-firing tweeters (triangle) and think they are rather spesh... but what the heck is a 'single' speaker??!!!
  6. Interesting, I guess that is due to the changing impedance of the driver?
  7. Yes cheers Muon Though I assume you are referring to the Great Audio Debate section? I agree that section could possibly come with a 'enter at own risk' warning - I don't participate there myself since I don't believe I am qualified. But I really haven't sensed what I would regard as combativeness elsewhere, and lord knows I'm on here often enough πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
  8. TBH I like hearing strong opinions on all sides. I'm agnostic on everything except that this is an insanely complex hobby where science, subjective experience and psychology collide in really interesting ways. I feel like I have something to learn from everyone and I am never offended by anything πŸ˜ƒ
  9. Wifey suggested a little vertical tasting (2016 & 2018) in the autumn sunshine, how could I say no?
  10. 8k AUD each channel is that correct? Dealers make mono block pricing hard to work out whether priced as a pair, but the trend seems to be listing pricing as a single channel....
  11. Oh wow, good on you for pushing back the frontiers of science - tho that wasn't what I'd hoped to hear since it sounds way too hard for me😒 πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  12. So I guess you are saying here that there is no standard answer to the question of 'what' (otherwise you wouldn't have ended on this question). Is that because the answer is unknowable (as it depends on listener preference), or merely insanely difficult to establish as it depends on the individual room set-up? Thanks!
  13. Hi, can I ask what software you use for this? And is this an example of 'linear' distortion which has been spoken about in the subsequent posts, or an example of a 'nothingburger'? πŸ˜ƒ
  14. Is there anything inherent to Class D tech that you may know of which prevents their sound quality from matching top flight amps? I know you were idly speculating, but was wondering why you may have chosen sub-5K as the eventual Class D market. Mind you, just taking over the sub-5k market doesn't actually leave much in overall market volume!
  15. I like the 4 channel concept - this gives the biamping option if your speakers need a bit more than a coupla kilowatts to get 'em movin' πŸ‘πŸ‘
