Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
@ghasley   Thanks, but the credit should really go to Marcus Aurelius 121 AD - 180 AD  "If any external thing causes you distress, it is not the thing itself that troubles you, but your own judgement about it.  And this you have the power to elimi... 
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
@toronto416  Hows the heat dome?  IMHO, what would have made this thread a spectacular success, once it turned into an Amir - ASR bashing contest, would have been if it only got 50 views and 5 posts.  Anyone interested in Amir - ASR is welcome to ...

@facten  I live in Edmonton and was here for the Gretzky years.  @devereld  What color is the sky in your world? 🤣

@ricevs is this the Agon version of Road Rage?     
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
That's quite funny.  To prove it's not rigged, just tell yourself to listen for "Brain Storm" both times and that's what you hear.  I remember another one like this where an LP was played backwards.  At first you hear nothing but gibberish.  Then ...

@facten  Thanks, but apparently it means nothing.  The very next post goes on to bad mouth Amir.  Who Fu&#king cares!!!!!!!  This forum is really turning me off.  Hey, maybe that's Amir's evil scheme.  Expose enough Agon members as narrow mind... 
What was the most expensive record that you ever bought ?
I have to cheat a bit and say $450 for the 250th Anniversary CD box set of the complete recordings of Beethoven on the D.G. lable.

@amir_asr  @erik_squires  and all the ships as sea.  Only 14 more posts to hit the milestone of 1000.  And what have we learned?  Absolutely nothing IMHO.  We all knew that ASR likes to use measurements and we already knew a whole lot of Agon memb... 
Watts! How many do we need?
@dogearedaudio   You are correct that Sanders is speaking about ESL for the  most part.  I listened to your attached file.  Very interesting.  I would suggest you could start at the 25 min mark as he doesn't really get into the meat of the subject... 
Watts! How many do we need?
@immatthewj  Scroll up about 15 posts and you will see I pasted a potion of the paper and included a link to the full paper.  Sanders does a good job explaining the perceived difference in tubes and SS, and why many systems may be underpowered.   ... 
Watts! How many do we need?
@immatthewj   I think that Sanders covered this question fully in his paper?    
Watts! How many do we need?
Beyond my paygrade.  We should all buy and listen to what we like.  There is no one right answer when it comes to amp power.  As pointed out in several comments, which I agree with, there are many factors that determine the proper combination of e... 
Watts! How many do we need?
@immatthewj   Actually, all watts are the same.  There's a scientific calculation that defines a watt.  It's all the other stuff that makes the difference.     
Martin Logan 13A's with Rel subs? A match?
@mikepaul   To your question of one or two subs, I think the answer lies in the amp you are using.  If you have a single stereo amp, the REL connection will capture all the bass.  However, if you are running monoblocks, you absolutely require two ...
