Thiel Owners
@duramax…during the short transport from the car into my house one of the speakers suffered a fairly noticeable surface scratch on its back, otherwise both were in excellent condition.  The scratch didn’t pierce the veneer but it is there if you l...

@Kevinbreezer… I just picked up a pair of beautiful CS6. Nice to be back in Thielworld.

Magnepan LRS+ which amps do you use ? * 100 watts or less **
A coupla things… i just received my pair of the LRS+ on Saturday this past weekend after waiting three months for them to arrive. Late last year I picked up a pair of original MMG’s to replace a pair of Thiel CS2.4’s - my other preferred speaker ... 
My New Magnepan 1.7i's sound dull and lifeless on the top end...why?
I just received a call from the hifi shop that my Maggie LRS+ speakers have arrived. I would say “finally” but it was only a three month wait, which is a rather big departure for me since I’ve always bought everything I own from stock. I’m not a v...

Maggie owners -- Mye or Magna Riser stands
Without having owned a pair of Mye stands I can’t really offer anything of substance to suggest them over MagnaRisers, but keep in mind that pretty much anything is an improvement over the stock stands that ship with the smaller Maggies. And I do ... 
My New Magnepan 1.7i's sound dull and lifeless on the top end...why?
I sold off my 1.7i’s not long after I had them solely because their height and overall presence in my room made me feel as though I was on Easter Island… I replaced the 1.7i’s with a pair of .7’s, which I found to be much more responsive, perhaps... 
Thinking of Magnepan ... finally!
I have had the .7 and the 1.7i driven by amps that delivered 150watts @ 8 ohms, 300 watts @ 4 ohms respectively and never had an issue. Right now as I wait for the arrival of my LRS+ I am enjoying the hell out of a pair of original MMG’s. With an ... 
Why do we stop listening to new music as we get older?
Actually, we don’t, or at least we don’t have to stop. In part because of my stereo, and in part because I don’t particularly like most of what is defined as popular music currently, I listen mostly to jazz. I’m a card-carrying boomer so I already... 
Better story teller than Edmund Fitzgerald?
“Down To The Well” - Kevin Gordon with Lucinda Williams  “Pineola” - Lucinda Williams (Live version preferably) ”You Don’t Mess Around With Jim” - Jim Croce    
Women Who Rock
I dunno but…Chrissie Hynde?  Lucinda Williams? And if you’ve  ever heard the live version of “Money Changes Everything”, ya’ just gotta include Cyndi Lauper for that in and of itself.       
What's in your CDP tonight? the minority report
Relish - Joan Osborne.   
What speakers have you mistakenly let go and then later repurchased?
It took quite a while for the Magna Risers Airborne stands for my Maggie MMG’s to be built and shipped to me, and kudos to the company for what was exemplary communication throughout the wait. They care.    I cannot state that they improved upon ...
