What speaker could safely be ordered without hearing it first?
I have not read through this thread but my vote is for Legacy Audio Focus SE. there is nothing not to like about this speaker.  
From whence does Sound Stage come?
Sound stage come from the recording studio!  
Why is solid state more popular when tubes are better?
@ianb52 made the point I was going to make. No one really talks about transient response when it comes to this argument. Solid state is much better at providing the power needed for rapid transient response or low bass control. At least in my limi... 
Replacing current sub with another
I agree on the SVS sub. It’s easy to integrate and has plenty of controls to dial it in. In my situation it was almost too easy.   
Digital front end upgrade options
There is a power supply upgrade available for the node that helps improve the performance. I have one in my second system and I’m quite pleased with it. I can’t say how it compares to the Lumin but for the price it’s pretty amazing.  
Help Identifying Vintage KEF Speakers
I know what it’s like to go through a fire. On my last day of high school I approached my home to see fire trucks. It was burned to the ground. The only things I owned were the clothes on my back and the stuff in my car. If you have never been thr... 
Why do speakers improve with more powerful amps?
It’s about the ability of the amplifier to deliver transient response to whatever speaker they’re driving. Transient response can take loads of power momentarily. If your speakers are efficient enough to handle that from a low watt tube amp then g... 
Burn in vs perception

So you just took a gummie...What song is on the menu?
Set the controls for the heart of the sun. Or, Meddle.  
Made the Move and Not looking back!
While you all are typing I’m listening to my Aurender with the Conductor app. Happy listening!  
Question about how analog audio recording works
I think you should just burn another one and contemplate the universe! Are we living in the matrix? That ought to keep your brain occupied for a while. Or you could just put on some early Pink Floyd and try to figure out the meaning.  
Why 432hz Tuning?
I guess my whole point in posting this is the fact that 432hz connects us to the universe. It seems like the most natural tuning. I feel as a species we are losing our ability to be part of the whole. But you have to watch the video to understand ... 
Belles and Legacy
Thanks for the insight. I ended up going with the 350A Reference. I'm waiting for it to arrive. It should be interesting!  
Forte 4A vs. Belles 350A vs. Belles 350A Reference
I appreciate the comments guys!  
Was I Expecting Too Much
Years ago I worked with a country bumpkin sort of guy who was single and lived very modestly. He walked into a bank and asked for the President (back when there actually were bank Presidents). They asked why he needed to see him and he explained h...
