Who actually uses digital speakers?
Actives will be the future. Bi and tri amped, crossover done in digital domain, eq settings.  Many times, actives will beat a hodge podge thrown together rig.  System synergy is hard to achieve at times  
Honest Experience on Effects of Subwoofer Please
I cross my mains over at 100hz.  I have an SVS Ultra 13, 155 pound behemothof a sub 12” behind my listening seat.  I can feel kick drums in my chest and even throat.  Music has become visceral.  My stereo can pound you into submission.  It makes g... 
Bookshelf dilemma
How about some ATC SCM 11 V3’s for $1200?  Theres a pair for sale right now  
How much $$ do bells and whistles add to preamp?
I had a Belles Aria integrated amp and loved it!     @rustler , why not go integrated?  Do you already have an amplifier?   I’ve heard Audible Illusions preamps are nice.  If going separates and just starting out, I’f look into tube preamps, id... 
REL Subwoofer to match monitor speakers similar to Raidho X-1s?
T9x would be great, maybe even the t7x.  I had a rel s2 sho and it was too large for the totem arros that I was trying to pair it with. The reason I say this is because the sub would go from too quiet to too loud with 1 click of the volume control...

“House” Character of Popular $20-$30k Speakers
“speakers and amps shouldn’t try to “correct” each other, but rather, they should complement each other” <——- I agree completely.  I think quite a few of us have gone about the other way for a long time  
The magic of outdoor listening
Theres some serious curmudgeons around here…   
The magic of outdoor listening
Headphones are great too in order to cancel noise pollution and listen to tunes at the same time.  Key here is to have as many wayd to enjoy tunes as possible.  
The magic of outdoor listening
Yep, agree.  My friends, family and myself all have awesome outdoor setups.  Yard work during the morning and day, beers on the deck in the afternoon with music throughout.  My brother uses Klipsch KlF20’s outside, one buddy uses Infinity Beta 50’... 
Why do folks spend more on electronics than on speakers?
