I see the issue with ABX blind testing
When properly carried out I can't imagine why anyone would be against blind testing.  I remember a while back when Kevin Deal performed a blind tests on, too lazy to look it up, either integrateds or power amps.  As memory serves, all attending t... 
Guess who has new speakers in their lab?
Here is just one A'goner's viewpoint. I don't find it at all unusual that OP would put a discussion about a video pertaining to speakers in the amp-preamp section. The speaker Jay has purchased is beautiful and based on my short audition of the ... 
Node 2i + DDC Upgrade to PulseMini?
@curiousjim  I want to say it was kinda like clicking the loudness button on an older receiver, but not as hit you over the head enhanced.  That is a great explanation I can understand.  Thanks!  I will be rolling around to purchasing a LPS fo... 
Node 2i + DDC Upgrade to PulseMini?
@curiousjim  I have the Node 2i and a have been thinking about adding a LPS for about as long as I have owned the 2i, but am long on procrastination.  I have read a number of reviews where the purchaser of the LPS for the node said the increase i... 
I see the issue with ABX blind testing
Seems like any non-audiophile that hears my system expects to be blown back into their chair by the bass.  That‘s what seems to matter. It would seem they were disappointed because they were expecting a noticeably higher sound difference betwee... 
Loud pop/screech when powering on amp
@kingbr  Fidelis Audio is in Nashua and is an excellent bricks and mortar audio store.  For a small processing fee they will pass the amp along for repair to Jim Fuller whose shop is Fuller Sound out of Waltham, MA. I just used Jim to update the... 
What the Best Dac have you heard or owned. How could you tell it was that good.
@tomic601  A boat is just a tool for chasing fish Agree 100%, grew up a couple of miles from Seal Beach, CA and spent every available minute fishing and surfing off Seal Beach and Huntington Beach piers.  Now freshwater. @carlsbad2  @jetter... 
What the Best Dac have you heard or owned. How could you tell it was that good.
@carlsbad2  Well, this thread went deep into the ditch. Not accurate, this thread started 6 feet under and stayed there.  OPs original post asks for the best DAC anyone has heard.  In his next post he mentions it's the DAC he currently owns.  ... 
What the Best Dac have you heard or owned. How could you tell it was that good.
Ergo, folks who pronounce that there is no point period in a $25K DAC don’t own a high-end system and should avoid making blanket statements about expensive hifi gear if they want to avoid sounding like the guy with the smallest *yacht at the pos... 
Questions about Musical Fidelity M5si Integrated
Why would you still buy from MF after receiving such terrible customer service?  
The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
@paoz A good question I think others are curious about.  Another poster asked this early on, I easily may have missed it, but I don’t remember it being addressed.  Maybe it will be included in the online review.  
Had anyone listened to Ken Fritz's system in person?
I am pretty sure that the video I am remembering was by Ken F.  In the video he goes through a bunch of his equipment, its inspiration, creation and performance.  At the end of the video he smiles, and relates how at the end of a recent session pl... 
Stereophile review of the $30,000 tekton speakers
@ozzy62 Not to mention that I was among a of group people here who he accused of contacting the Washington State board that oversees x-ray techs and complained that he was providing substandard service and either had him barred or almost barred ... 
Anyone else order Caladans from Clayton Shaw?
@soix +1 Can't wait to hear some A'gon user reviews of these speakers.
