BTO Not Fragile
I also still have that album that I bought when I was in high school. Loved it at the time, but not as enjoyable listening today.  Music tastes change as we get older.  
DCS Bartok v Meitner MA3 v Esoteric N05XD
I don’t have the Esoteric N05xd, but I do have the N01XD. Very analog sounding. The XD version is a big improvement from the previous series.  
Seeking Honest Opinions: Your Experience with McIntosh Audio Gear
I think it probably depends on your other components. I have 611 monos, with B&W 802D3 speakers. My sources are an Esoteric N01XD streamer and a Clearaudio Performance turntable. That combination works well. Bold, natural, and detailed with cl... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
Ozzy, I gad the same experience when I upgraded XLR cables from Earth to the new Pegasus.  They are fabulous!

On the settings app, Go to sounds, then scroll down to headphone safety.  
Audioquest Pegasus XLR Interconnects
Hi Kennymacc, I recently upgraded from Audioquest earth to the Pegasus. I have to agree, the improvement was very noticeable. Vocals are very clear and natural, and bass is well defined. Music and sounds that were in the background on a song seem... 
AudioQuest Pegasus vs Thunderbird Interconnects
For what it is worth, I recently upgraded to Pegasus XLR from Earth.  Sweeter highs, clear and natural mid range vocals, fuller bass.  
Why No McIntosh Recommendations?
I agree Jeffrey.  My 611’s sound dynamic, yet smooth.  Pairs well with my B&W’s.  
McIntosh MC611 (terminal 2, 4, or 8 ohms)to B&W 800d3's
I have the 611 mono amps and found the 4 ohm tap was best with my B&W 802D3’s..  
Beatles Red and Blue albums remix
New expanded versions on vinyl and CD’s to be released November 10th.  
Beatles Red and Blue albums remix
Sorry, I meant “now and then”. Yoko Ono had given Paul McCartney 3 unfinished John Lennon tunes on a cassette several years ago; 2 were recorded for the Anthology disks. This would be the third, and they will be using AI to enhance John’ s voice.  
Add sub to 802D4s?
Which amps do you like with B&W’s? I have Mac 611 monos and feel they mate well with B&W.   Very happy with the sound, smooth, robust, and dynamic to my ears.    
Add sub to 802D4s?
I have B&W 802d3’s and have 2 JL Audio f 113’s.  I listen to rock, indie, and some alternative.  I love bass and the subs really give music an extra kick and dynamic.   I had them both in repair about a year ago and really missed the deeper ba... 
McIntosh to Luxman?
I don’t understand the McIntosh bashing. I use 611’s with an Esoteric N01XD streamer, Clearaudio turntable, and B&W 802D3’s (another brand that gets bashed on this site). The sound is balanced, but not veiled in any way. I think the sound is c...
