Why is solid state more popular when tubes are better?
Wow Class D as good as modern tubes what strain do I need to smoke to believe that ? And not just flower but concentrate right ? WTF 😳 killing me styles! 🤣   I always enjoy the different responses people have,  yes speakers definitively are a ma... 
seeking advise please on my short list for new speakers? (15k budget)
Wilsons only with soft some tweeters are amazing otherwise what about Harbeth 40.2’s especially if can find a good used pair of anniversary edition truly an amazing speaker that doesn’t cause listener fatigue  
Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters Ruins the Song ‘Money’!
Definitely an enjoyable thread as so many points of view. I love Pink Floyd taking my 10-year-old son to see Britt Floyd tomorrow night now there’s a reputable cover band the original known dark side of the moon was engineered by Alan parsons. He ... 
Help this old rookie with speakers
Listen to other brands like Harbeth, (which do voices as good as Martin Logan’s and other ESL brands as you might be able to find a pair of HL5+ for that price and will hear way more detail then with JBL etc there’s a reason many of the best revie... 
Give 'Ambrosia' another listen
I’m glad you brought them up as grew up on “Life beyond LA” and didn’t hear the first album (cept the hits off it) and it’s so good through my Harbeth REL combo makes me appreciate Alan Parsons and the fact that he’s still around  touring  That &a... 
Can you give me your speaker suggestions?
Depends based on your musical taste I would listen to Martin Logan Montis (one of the best they ever made better then the Summit 🤠definitely only drive with modern tubes though💯 and Harbeth HL5 plus (amazing)perhaps with a REL SUB but if you can ... 
Upgrade to McIntosh
I love the MC275 it’s a workhorse and a tank! I wouldn’t pair it with a Mac pre however as the sound is on the dark side I much prefer a CJ like a ET5 is a steal used for the $ and hard to beat. Also tho are you doing the MC275 because it will be ... 
VTL with KT120 tubes
I ran the KT120’s in my MB450’s and loved the sound of them at the time but after talking with friends about it would probably stick to JJKT88’s at this point as they are made to run those and if you love the bigger tubes get the CJ amp that’s mad... 
Tube or solid state
So much of it all comes down to your budget. I’ve had numbers of tube amps That I’ve loved like the VTL Ichibon’s however, I don’t want that much heat and tubes to maintain. I use an auto bias S 200 amp now and I’m thrilled with the push button ea... 
Looking for a good small subwoofer...
REL are truly amazing I use a Carbon Fiber with my Harbeths seamless match🤩  
need amp recommendations for more separation of instruments
Lotta great information in this chat with regard to placement room treatment, etc. but I definitely agree with the gentleman that talked about doing separates and for true holographic sound. I just don’t think anything beats newer tube amplifiers.... 
Interesting situation! Do we need this....
I can enjoy both my solid state Adcom with my cheaper speakers and my Tube amp with my Harbeths it’s a enjoyment for music either way I just get more joy from the glow of tubes💫

VTL with KT120 tubes
Hey, I’m curious if you still have that amp and if you’re running KT88’s with it or the 6550s still as I have the same amp and love it ⭐️ Also, when I did have the MB450’s the first generation I used KT120’s  with it and loved it. It’s too bad VTL... 
What are your top 3 favorite female singers?
I can’t believe Stevie Nicks made the list for some of you I mean who doesn’t like Miss piggy, but as an actual singer? I guess in the late 70’s before all the cocaine  I think there should be a revised list for top singers that you’ve seen in per...
