Anyone own Linear Tube Audio Amps?
Got a pair of GRFs. Had the pass, moved on to the LTA UL and pre separates and haven't looked back. A glorious sounding pairing. Tannoys work very well with these amps. More bloom than the pass, and will sound a bit heavier in the bass department ... 
What is the best HEAVY METAL speaker?
Transient speed becomes an issue for modern metal given the tight distortion profile of the guitar intended to be percussive. The type of speaker that falls apart with funk will fall apart with this sort of metal.    Other than that, older or mo... 
AGD Audion GaN Class D In The House
Hey Lance, pumped to hear more about how these compare to the LTA reference+ and the Coda, as I own amps from both companies as well as the LTA pre.    Would love to slim down the power amp stable ! (The LTA pre is a keeper tho)   Cheers    
Listening to music I don’t particularly like
I’ve been in the hobby for about 3-4 years now, and I’ve finally kicked the "chase the dragon" element of this hobby. Went through the typical listen to random music that sounds good phase. Chased detail etc. But I’m really a big prog rock and me... 
"warm" solid state integrated amplifier
CODA CSIB another great reco. Very happy with mine, making me want to move up the line towards the separates. Have had pass and FW in past.    Definitely less warm / rounded then pass but just a great for tone color and density   
Amp in a Bottle - AGD Productions Interview
Looking forward to that Lance. The comp with the Coda and LTA would be much appreciated !  
Next Gen of Low Powered SS amps.
Correct - just run of the mill power amps   
Advice sought on sending a preamp from Canada to the US for repair and return
Nothing to worry about, declared value is not the same as insured value.  Don't confuse the 2. Mark off as a repaired item. Shouldn't cost you anything. Makes sure the company marks it likewise when sending back  
Cube Audio Nenuphar Single Driver Speaker (10 inch) TQWT Enclosure
@vinpic please keep us posted on the E2SE !! Would love to hear your comparison and thoughts on the Bakoon vs. the Valvet. I've had the SIT3 before and found it a bit dark/earthy for my taste. If I could get my hands on a SIT2 or 1s - I believe th... 
Musica Pristina A Cappella III Streamer ?
Great news if true - do you have a Wavedream or Wavelight ? You have the older Musical Pristina unit though correct ?--I have a Wavedream. Kev from MP said supposedly the latest rockna firmware is supposed to allow me to choose between Rockna/PS a... 
Musica Pristina A Cappella III Streamer ?
I'm not sure if it is compatible with the rockna standard - but definitely the PS audio standard.  
Tariff for used item from Canada to US
As someone in Canada who frequently imports used gear from the US/EU, I’m always tagged with duties. Make sure you ask the seller to report a "fair value" for the item you are importing .. if you get my drift.  
Cube Audio Nenuphar Single Driver Speaker (10 inch) TQWT Enclosure
Absolutely. Will do. This is the best thread on agon. Might as well contribute here ! For reference I've got the LTA Ultra Linear right now powering some Tannoy Eaton speakers (dual concentric). From the sounds of it in this thread I think it's sa... 
Cube Audio Nenuphar Single Driver Speaker (10 inch) TQWT Enclosure
As someone who is casually looking for a Bakoon 13r - the resale market is no way a 50% drop. I've seen on average about 1k off from 6k MSRP which is a pretty standard discount in terms of a listing price.In terms of dealers can't speak to that.If... 
is Hi-Res all that?
For me - how the band was recorded (spacing etc) much more important than the bit rate. Just because it's hi-res doesn't change that fact. More than happy with CD quality. Generally I find all hi-res re-masters to sound poorer than the original - ...
