I tried the Mad Scientist Graphene liquid As Ozzy said, it was  initially dark...Gave it couple of days, and things sounded better over time to me..I like it, but very messy to handle..

What's the size of your room?Do you listen at a high SPL?These will have an impact on your choice...I have the X250.8 with Legacy Signature SE speakers in a 17x12x8 room, and that's good enough for me @ 75db-84dbThat being said, you can't have too... 
Audience's Ohno speaker cable & interconnect. Entry level fluff or serious cable ??

Audience's Ohno speaker cable & interconnect. Entry level fluff or serious cable ??
I'm using a bi-wire set for my speakers.It bettered my Audioquest Rocket 88..

Legacy Signature SE for 2 Channel

My Parasound A21 review and VS Emotiva XPA
I've owned a lot of Emotiva gear over the years.Good starting point, but I've learned it has a lot to do with your ears, and how you interpret the sound.Recently I've started to phase out my Emotiva gear, with vast improvement after each piece was... 
The Emotiva Challenge
I've done that route of starting out with Emotiva.owned CD player they've made, several of their amplifiers, etc.After curiosity and affordability kicked in, I've gone PS Audio on the front end and now looking for an amp to complete my lust.The th... 
The Emotiva Challenge
Mitch,What you've stated is correct in the sense Emotiva provides an avenue for start up Audiophiles.I've done that journey, and I have no regrets...
