B&W Nautilus 804 - how good are they
The Nautilus line is not representative of current models of B&W.  They are more relaxed on the top end and actually present a very nice sound.  I'd say go for it if the price is consistent with used prices. When Diamond tweeters were introdu...

panerai, where are you located?  
Mastersound 300b Compact-thoughts???
This is one of two integrated amps I did not bring in to demo (the other being the Dueundici) due to the low power and lack of speakers to properly show the amplifier.   I have had the Compact 845 as well as the Evo 300B.  The Evo 300B was an inc...

Hello again!If you haven't seen it yet, I'd advise you to check out the other thread linked below.  It should answer some of your questions from those who own them. 
What comes after Harbeth 30.1s?
I’d be more than happy to accommodate. My reach out to you is simply knowing how close you are and the path you’ve been down. It is definitely worth an afternoon of your time, or anyone else’s who might be in the DFW area.  
What comes after Harbeth 30.1s?
JM, you need to experience the series 2. The elevation Francesco made is nothing short of astounding. I had an Audioquest rep over yesterday and he was shocked by the Elba 2. He expressed that he had never heard a speaker sound anything like that ... 
What comes after Harbeth 30.1s?
You're local to me.  Come hear the Rosso FIorentino Pienza and Fiesole.  The Pienza are currently at Part Time Audiophile for a review but they will be back at my house on October 16 for an audio meet.  Maybe its an ideal time for you to come out? 
Suggestions for Minn/St Paul HiFi Stops? Retail/Manufacturers/Private Homes has a wonderful, fully dedicated and treated room that is worth visiting.  He is on the Northwest side of Minneapolis.He has the Rosso Fiorentino Elba 2 on demo currently, being backed by Nagra gear if I'm not mistaken.  The Elba 2 is... 
Wilson Audio Sasha sound imbalance
A wavering center image in my experience has always been solved by more precise setup of speakers.  Double and triple check your measurements as well as toe-in.  The fact that it wavers only in a certain band strongly suggests to me it isn't a bal... 
Ohm Speakers and Services prices to increase September 1st
This is where the world is going unfortunately, due to COVID's impact.  If you are on the fence about any brand and think you'll pull the trigger on a product eventually, try to do it sooner than later.  A price increase is looming for everyone. 
New mains to complement Usher 5.1 setup?
Perhaps consider the N6311 or N6361. They are based off the CP-6 series and represent great values. 
Actual Lead Time on Tekton Speakers
I don't think anyone has said anything out of line, but the reality is that the world has changed and is completely unpredictable right now.  I have no vested interest in Tekton - in fact, they are a competitor - but I do hope clients can understa... 
Actual Lead Time on Tekton Speakers
You are not wrong to have grievances, but the state of the world today is a massive challenge for production.  Manufacturers are struggling to meet deadlines because their suppliers are also failing to meat deadlines.  During the post-COVID adjust... 
Opinions on the ; Rosso Fiorentino Sienna or Volterra II Speakers
urbie,There is truth to your words, but Rosso Fiorentino is not a brand that is going to stay that way for much longer.  I have worked with the brand for six years now and been acting distributor for about four.  We are establishing ourselves and ...
