Some of you guys are talking about the wrong thing. The O.P. is not talking about the soft cueing-in-the-studio notes that you can actually hear on some recordings, just before a song starts. He's talking about something that happens if you're familiar with a whole album. You hear one song being pla...

There seems to be a faction here that doesn't pay much attention to anything they suspect doesn't agree with their opinions. On Audio Planet, Michael Fremer plays up the newbie who has little experience with gadgets just to show everyone what can go wrong with many products, especially where he men...

Blah, blah blah....people around here like to 'dis' the magazines and reviewers.... ...but just TRY to sell a component - even of very high quality, built by known designers who have built other very respected brands - with no review in a glossy magazine or webzine! They're afraid to buy if it hasn'...

CN191 has a very fun presentation of sound. Id best say they duplicative a "live" band experience. They produce a very full and rythmic sound that I really enjoyed every Sat morning or Friday night. The "throw" of sound was across my house. I sort of think AV guy actually attemp...

I sold a pair of those for more than $7000.00 a couple of years ago. They'll fetch even more than that if you have a matching pair with the same/similar finish, same crossover etc. I sold them for an elderly gentleman who had two pairs, having picked them-up one at at time over the years from church...

Yup, that session was recorded right here in Hamilton, Ontario.
