Saw them back to back nights at the Crazy Horse in Dartmouth back in 1988 and thought they were great now. Gord and the Band are true Canadians that never sold out. A huge lose for music and Canada. RIP.

If we ship very expensive and or large panels / speakers I use a freight company and we strap the speakers to a pallet. To damage something on a pallet takes a lot of effort.

We run our SF's with Hegel and Naim for SS gear ( not a world of difference with them and Arcam) and the pairings work very well and we have taken B&W on trade towards themas well as against Spendor. Is your room heavily damped or open and lively? Lots of glass or hardwood / ceramic etc? I have ...

We used a 400A ( albeit rebuilt by our tech - William Boucher) to run our Soltanus Electrostats 2 years ago in Montreal and garnered several best sound of show accolades. The amp once rebuilt was better in every way from the original but nothing of the circuit was changed. He has since rebuilt 2 Sta...

Your earlier statement would fit in nicely here: audiophile wanna be's with tin ears who seek to impress their friends by buying large ugly furniture . It all ends up the same way eventually, in the land fills. These are the Edsels of the audiophile world. Personnaly I would have to hear hem for mys...

I only gave my experience from what i have seen. I have not tried selling anything. If the forums were used only to help each other out and not to get people arguing there wiuld be a lot less getting off topic. I do stand by my 3 groups.

Well the original question before the inevitable happened was : I'm curious as to the esteemed member's opinions/experiences of the sound, perceived value, aesthetics etc. of the GE product line.

I guess that I am an oddball and believe enough on my ears to make choices for myself. All of the equipment Icarry I believe in . Yes I start with reviews to narrow the playing field down .
