Steve Guttenberg finally reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8b loudspeaker.
@dynamiclinearity ​​@bdp24 - as @mijostyn pointed out, the SPL dropoff with distance has nothing to do with the speakers being planars or dipoles.   Line source speakers produce a cylindrical wavefront (whether they are dipoles or not), which has... 
horn or line array?
@fac - take a look at my virtual system page.   
Best sounding op-amp
I like the OPA1611, but I think it’s only available as a surface mount part. I’ve seen little DIP adapters but for them though.   
horn or line array?
I'm loving the sound from my line arrays. I listen primarily to jazz and vocals.   
pS Audio is dealer only now I guess..
That does not appear to be the case.   
300b lovers
I look forward to hearing this amp at PAF. I'm currently running 300B PSET Monoblocks (transformer coupled) and love the way they sound.   
Absorption, Diffusion or a combination of it all?
@ozzy - are you planning to use subwoofers with your planars? The bass generated by dipole speakers is a lot different than a typical box speaker since it doesn't pressurize the room like a box speaker. In my opinion, this results in more natural ... 
Absorption, Diffusion or a combination of it all?
@ozzy - I'd leave the tube traps in the corners. I like the ATS QRDs. I wrapped these with Guilford of Maine cloth and they look quite nice, but you might prefer the wood look. See my virtual system page to see how they look with cloth wrap. I hav... 
Absorption, Diffusion or a combination of it all?
@ozzy - I'd recommend trying the planar speakers with your current room acoustics setup to start with and see what you think. I've found that I prefer diffusors behind my dipole speakers without any absorption, but every room is different and some... 
PS Audio PowerPlant 12 Review (AC Regenerator)
I owned a Stellar Powerplant P3 for a few years, and recently upgraded to the P12. I really like it. I thought the P3 made an improvement, but the P12 is even better and makes my system sound consistently good. I only use it on my front-end compon... 
Modifying Crossovers
Yeah, I spent about $3000 for the parts in my current crossovers. These are high quality parts, but FAR from the most expensive parts available. I’ve seen some crossovers from Tidal and other high-end brands that use parts that are several times m... 
Modifying Crossovers
@lemonhaze -  I'm using the Dueland 0.01uF JDM Tinned Copper Foil Bypass caps on both the tweeter series cap and the midrange shunt caps, I didn't really notice much if any difference on the midrange caps, but they added a touch of sparkle and ai...

Modifying Crossovers
@carlsbad2 - I've been using these crossovers in my dipole planar-magnetic line arrays since November. They took a few months to fully break in, but are now sounding fabulous.
