What speaker do you passionately want to demo?
Alsyvox Botticelli’sheard them briefly in a massive room at 2019 RMAF. They filled that room completely. Magneplanar design but with grunt guts and extended bass. Like Maggies on steroids.  
Quality 1 meter RCA Interconnects under $100?
I have really liked Anticables entry level IC. Very clean with good bass and depth. They often have their level 2 offerings on sale on the clearance page on their website.

Sopra 2 Bass
Hey there, one thing to make sure of. Make sure your node 2i  is t on “subwoofer” setting which is essentially a high pass filter which sends all the low frequencies to a sub. You probably don’t have this mistake but I made a month ago and was ver... 
What's your dream speaker?
Alsyvox Botticelli…. Heard them at RMAF in 2019 and for me they were the best in show. They were in a massive room with no subs. It’s like a top of the line Maggie but with bass and slamming dynamics.. pretty too!!

Warning: China-Hifi-Audio.com
Hey Calieng,I too ordered a Wilsenton amp, though a different model from China hi-fi. Their communication was absolutely terrible with me as well. Same issues. However, the amo did arrive as promised though with a heavy delivery fee (about $400 I ... 
Tinnitus sufferer: is it the speakers or the 24bits/192kHz
Hey Mocktenderi too have significant tinnitus and multiple speakers. I’ve found that my Maggie’s give me the fewest issues and my high efficiency speakers can trigger more problems. I agree with getting some tubes in the equation  
Looking for a black brushed mental bookshelf speaker
I might check out the Gallo Strata II’s. They like being close to walls. Set properly they will image like nobody’s business. The CDT tweeter is one of my favorites. They are spec’d to 65 hz, but I think that’s generous. Would pair very nicely wit... 
Why wont speaker companies publish their measurements?
Hey Kenjit,I know you get a ton of flack around here, but by the numbers you’re one of the most popular posters on this site.
