MEGAschino Cherry MK2
Tommy pased away a couple of years ago. The Cherry amps were his own design which now makes service a problem. I am not aware of any schematics for his designs.  
What does the gold star mean on this listing for the LSA amp?
@shtinkydog  I understand your frustration. The question has been asked and explained and you are still getting answers that have no relevance to the question. It is really astonishing.  I saw the original ad you linked and the star in the title... 
Dirty little secret of Pedigreed, decades old Speaker line - no one will address
Why it might matter to someone who values progress in the audio industry as much as audio journalists who write about just that on our behalf - is not I suggest, a question that should even be asked. All who engage in these forums, ipso facto car... 
Dirty little secret of Pedigreed, decades old Speaker line - no one will address
I don't see how not changing their midrange driver (at least visibly) is an integrity issue by the company. They manufacture their drivers to meet their specifications and design goals for the speakers that they build. I think that actually shows ...

ABX testing with AQ Dragon power cords
  Confirmation bias is huge and proportional to how much money you just spent. It is interesting that those that bring up confirmation bias believe it only applies to those that buy things that they don't find value in. Your confirmation bias ... 
What if a high end speaker measures really badly?
@soix has it right. The Alta Audio speakers should be listened to before buying. I was one of those commenting on the Alyssa thread about frequency response and discontinuity issues. There were three speakers from them represented at Axpona. I hea... 
Anybody have Experience with Alta Audio Alyssa Speaker
I heard all three Alta Audio speakers shown at Axpona. All of them had the same issue. It sounded like the midrange driver did not correctly meet the tweeter making vocals seem recessed / distant / veiled. There was a suckout that just didn't work... 
I see the issue with ABX blind testing
Nice video @audphile1 . It is good to know that there are people still interested in digging into why people hear a difference vice stating none is possible.   
Subwoofer speed is in the room, not the box
The Danny Richie video is interesting. I often find his videos very well done and have a lot of great info. His explanation of speed is interesting, though. First, he comes out and states that the driver output tracking the signal input is not "sp... 
Young audiophile metal head looking to level up speaker choice
For your budget and room size, consider the Tekton Electron. It is not the last word in refinement or imaging, but does a good job tonally and dynamically and should meet what you are looking for. If you stretch your budget a bit, there is a pair...

@killingforcompany  Unless I missed it, you never stated a budget.   
Velodyne DD15 - worth repairing the plate amp?
But there is a quick setup button on the back of the sub.  @rwwear Are you sure of this? He is using the DD, not the DD plus. There is an auto-eq function that can be done pretty quickly using the remote on the DD. I don't see anything in the m... 
Velodyne DD15 - worth repairing the plate amp?
It has composite video out for on-screen display. It does not connect to a computer. The computer connections are for software updates. It does require the remote and on-screen display to set everything up. It runs frequency sweeps that you can se... 
Velodyne DD15 - worth repairing the plate amp?
The microphone connects to the plate amp. There is also a video output that you connect a monitor to. You would be best printing a copy of the manual for the sub and following what it says. The manual for the SMS-1 is pretty similar. There is a lo...
