Life after ADS
I have owned the following L710, 620, l8e, l9e, l980, l1530, s700 and have heard the 520, 570, l990, l1290, l780 & l880. I most regret selling the 710 and l9e. The 710 have a very well balanced sound with a very nice open and airy top end albe...

I do not see the statements listed in the link for the price you quote. They are 1799.00 through Walter now but were almost $3000 when they first came out. Have any of you ADS owners heard anything from the sat or cm series? I have my eye on a pai... 
CJ 17LS/LS2 vs AI M3A
I have heard the LS with that amp and it was superb. The gentelman who owned it had upgraded to the LS2 and felt it wasn't worth the money. Back when I was looking for a tube preamp the ls17 was recommended to me by a fellow member on here as well... 
Spdif source switching?
Right now I have a modified Xindak DAC 5 from Exemplar. Would adding an extra device to my system just to gain the extra inputs be a better solution than getting a different DAC? Right now I am auditioning an NAD M51 on loan from a friend and so f...

Question about shipping damage
Spoke with the store manager on Friday and he assured me they would make it right. Fingers crossed but if in the case I'm out the money at least it won't be a huge loss. But a valuable lesson for sure. I was talking to a friend about what happened... 
Life after ADS
As I said before I purchased a pair of LSA Statement monitors to try. While im still trying to configure them in my room, compared to my Speaker Art speakers at half the cost is really is no comparison, the Super Clef's are better in just about ev... 
Question about shipping damage
The attendant used 3 layers of thin foam and then three more layers of the large bubble wrap. She placed it in a tight fitting box. Then placed that box into a larger one filled with peanuts. I thought it seemed well packed however as Elizabeth an... 
Question about shipping damage
Thank your for the insight and I agree on several points. I have refunded the buyer and spoke with the manager at the store and after appoligizing for not packing er. After apologizing for not packing it better, he told me he would handle the clai... 
Life after ADS
Thanks for all the suggestions. I have owned 710, 620, L8e, l9e, s700, L980's & of course the 1530's and have heard at least 6 others in the line up. The only other Michael Kelly design I have owned were a pair of ERA D5 (great little speaker)... 
Building a new sound system opinions
Check out the Vanatoo Transparent One active speakers, might be just what your looking for. It has digital inputs, Sub-Out, Dsp room correction and sounds pretty good for the money. Otherwise if you can stretch your budget I would suggest the new ...

Class D or Hybrid Amp for Fritz Rev 7 speakers
I am using a class d amp with a tube pre and it is by far the best combination I have owned so far. Previous amps from Marsh, Odyssey, Adcom, B&K, Qucksilver, and a few others were easily bested by the class d amp. My speakers are Speaker Art ...
