This is a loaded gun... "need".. probably only 1 pair, maybe 2.. "want" .. LOTS !!! :mrgreen: :lol: However, I'm down to 3 pair in rotation, and one vintage pair of Keesonic Kubs that I keep for sentimental reasons, they've been around since I started my audio adventures when I w...

I find it VERY discouraging that many audio dealers in the GTA will gladly sell you tube gear (pre's, power, dacs) but heaven forbid if you ask them if they carry tubes.. the majority are a flat NO. It's essentially a double standard.. sure we sell the gear... oh you want to buy tubes ?? go online.....

Well, since this thread has got some new life, I'll help it along a bit.. :lol: It's not the $19.99 vintage find that Old Rusty snagged, but I'm pretty chuffed about my new SL1200"G" 8) Without a doubt it's the finest variant on a 1200 I've EVER heard. Currently have my Ortofon 2M-Black on...

while the OP does not indicate if the structure is a condo townhouse style building, or an MDU concrete tower type, the gist of this complaint remains the same. The majority of condominium corporations have in their building declaration/rules a "quiet enjoyment" clause that indicates every...

You should probably check with your provider, to ensure that you have sufficient coverage on your contents to cover the gear, and other personal assets. Ensure that you will have "replacement value" on it. Recommendations are usually made to document what gear you have (brand, model, seria...

I have experienced these loudspeakers many, many times. Stereophile magazine has lost what little credibility they had with me. My NOLA Boxer S2s ($2900.00) completely destroy these Harbeths in every parameter imaginable. J. Not really any of my concern, but this post wouldn’t be one of your finer ...

I always thought the older original ML amps looked very cool. The LAMM units sort of echo that look, as do the big Plinius SA series, and the original Gryphon DM100. Cosmetically, I was very partial to my old Blue Circle BC206.. I used to call it my "U-Boat".. :lol: The heatsinks were inte...

56, audio and music have been a part of the equation since as far back as I can remember. :shock:
But I think the real "tipping point" was when I heard a full Linn/Quad/Quad ESL 57 rig in around 1976 or so.. mind blown.. :lol:
