OCD mickey website and negativity.
I like Mikey and his channel. I happen to think a pair of Kef Blades and Classe monoblocks make a very high end sound though. I wouldn't buy them at Magnolia but it is a very good sound in my opinion.  
Help . . . I’m dumber than my active speakers!
@kcpellethead I think your main system is very good and there is no reason to think the active speakers can do the same. I have heard Dutch and Dutch at shows and liked them. We have to ask ourselves can a built in amp  match these other electroni... 
Transparent Audio is anything but Transparent
I don't have a problem with Transparent's stance on this. It is surprising that anyone would think they should spend their time authenticating 2nd hand cables.   
Technics SL-1200GAE or VPI HW-40 or …?
I owned the HW 40 and the sound quality was dynamite. It is huge and barely fits on a normal rack. I own a Technics 1200g now and believe the engineering is tighter if that makes sense. Nothing is left to chance.  I would recommend the HW 40 but h... 
Maggies and subwoofer integration
I have yet to hear a speaker that doesn't benefit from subwoofers. Subwoofers add width to the soundstage. It's the foundation of the sound for me.  
Selling here on Audiogon
@thastum  Agree. I would list my speaker but $500 is too high considering they might not even sell. You can list for $5 but can't share info so it's very difficult to sell. Dealers apparently pay very little because you see the same guy from Chica... 
A Few Nice Words For Upscale Audio
They seem to do everything right.  
Seeking Legit Cartridge Expert?
Hana ML is as good as any in that price range.   
New to the B&W 801D4
I would probably add a preamp before I changed amplifiers. That might be a better result. Those are good amps by most accounts.  
suggestions? Coda CSIB or Musical Fidelity M8xi?
Those are both great And Rotel Michi X5 might be a good addition to that list. Great amp. I own it and have been pleased.  
Magnepan 2.7i
It's exactly what you think, the size between the two. It has the ribbon tweeter like the 3.7i but smaller. I heard it Saturday. It's excellent but it doesn't seem much smaller than the 3.7i.  
Is a McIntosh MA12000 a good fit for a Sonus Farber Amati Tradition?
How did the switch in speakers go? DAW and the Amati are on my list. Can you give me your thoughts?  
Any normal size speakers that sound like Volti
I think they fit the space nicely.    
Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!
@steve59 I had some Ushers a couple down the line from yours. I forgot those. LOL Do you still have the Blades?  I feel some comfort that I'm not alone but the room is always going to set the limit on the sound. I need to understand that. I have a... 
Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!
It's really not about the speakers but the sickness. I've had multiple speakers that should have been endgame. Goldenear Triton Ref. Dynaudio Evidence Temptations. Dynaudio C1 Signature. Monitor Audio 300 Platinum. Legacy Aeris. Any right minded h...
