Need recommendations on 15ft speaker cables
I agree with Terry9....components are a top priority especially speakers. I bought the Canare OF wire by the foot from Performanceaudio at a great price since I'm always looking for a great deal. I then assembled them myself with Nakamichi banana ... 
AXPONA 2024
Surprised the to see that no one has commented on the T&A Criterion S230 speakers. I really enjoyed speaking Elliott Schultz from the company. He was quite informative and excited with this newer S230 speaker system. The speakers were impress... 
Let the best be your guide
I agree with you dhite71. I bought some new speakers also and most of recordings have revealed new sounds and things like artists talking in the background that wasn't relevant before. 95% of the recordings are better but the rest isn't up to my l... 
Preamp advice
I agree with Glenn N. the McIntosh is a wise choice with a the LaScala. I'm sure you will be happy with that choice.  
Philharmonic Audio BMR Towers
I purchased a pair of the BMR Towers recently and really like them. The bass is good and the high/midrange end are great. I have a few other brands of speakers to compare to here and there are many passages within various recordings that were not ...

What speaker could safely be ordered without hearing it first?
You can't go wrong with Wharfedale Linton speakers for the money $1499 with stands in which I highly recommend. The bass is good without exaggeration , the mid-range is great and the high end doesn't give me listener fatigue. If you buy them new..... 
Canare 4s11 how good are they ?
I'm fixin on the Canare 4S11 11 gauge speaker wire at 20' length for each speaker. Now, should I get the flat spade connectors or the banana plugs ? My speakers and amp will accept either style .  
Wharfedale Lintons ... Any great amp pairings?
I really like the Lintons and have them matched with a Rotel 1572 MK II preamp and RB-1552 MK II power amp. Really enjoy the Rotel combo with all it's features. The Lintons have a nice midrange and also the imaging is very good when placed properl... 
Can you have too much speaker presence?
The dealer must be talking about the 1976 Led Zeppelin Presence album. ark,ark!
