 Forum: Speakers   Topic: Tips for auditioning used speakers?

I've sold a lot of stuff on CAM and once had a guy bring a multi-meter, and a stethoscope and ran all sorts of crazy tests on an $800 pair of speakers I sold him. It was a bit mucho IMO, but whatever makes people feel comfortable Whenever I buy speakers, I simply listen to them with a song that I'm ...

Because people with their Crosley turntables are willing to pay for it.

Listen to Rega players for that kind of money you could get a very nice one that you would be happy with for many years. :D

Agreed. The Rega Apollo is quite quite nice. Not going out of style anytime soon.

So 3 weeks ago I purchased some Kef headphones. Love them. Last week, my 3 year old got hold of them and tried inserting the connector into an ipad, and of course broke the connector. Luckily it's a detachable cable, so I looked around for the prper Kef replacement, with the same color and all I cou...

If not cash, then Interac E-Transfer is the only other acceptable in-person payment method IMO.

WHen I first got into HIFI 7 years ago, an NAD C315BEE was my first 'nice amp.' Very fond memories of it, and how well it sounded with the massive Klipsch RF7 towers I had. Very clean. Yes, there are better amps, which all depends on how much you want to spend and what type of sound you want, but yo...

Currently running an IDA-8 with Dynaudio Audience 52 speakers and it sounds great at both low and high volumes. Tried it with Totem Dreamcatchers and not a good match. Tried with with expensive Audio Physic speakers, and again, not as good of a match as the Dynaudios, for whatever reason. The IDA-8 ...

Maybe one of the lines is close to some type of source producing interference? Who knows. Could be so many variables. Maybe even perception? I'm no electrician, so I'll leave any other possible theories to the experts...

I'm looking for a decent streamer with a good built in DAC. The BlueSound Node 2 keeps coming up as having a very good internal DAC with excellent capabilities as a streamer, and supposedly is priced way below what it's quality would dictate. Have any of you used the Node 2? Opinions? Also, I can't ...

Google Home or Mini would be better, because you can buy a Google Chromecast Audio ($39) and use the optical out on that to plug straight into your DAC. Then you could even do high-res via voice command.

Speakers for backup, in case they fail? I've owned so many speakers and have never had a speaker fail. Even really really old ones.

I'd argue that Metallica is not masterpiece material. Yes they have a few good songs, certainly not masterpieces, and I've heard 'Master of the Puppets', which I have in my collection. But that is just your opinion. Which to be honest - despite I disagree, I do respect. You opened a thread to ask f...
