How important is the efficiency of a speaker to you?
The very good high efficiency speakers also require a serious amp, they can still be difficult loads. Flea watt amps are dumb for any kind of speaker, high efficiency or not. Nothing about the flea watt amp guarantees that it is the best design fo... 
Borresen Loudspeakers
I try to always think as an engineer first and audiophile second. Despite all the technical advantage listed on Borresen website, I don’t think it will justify pricing the price of half a million dollar, unless if you price it for EXCLUSIVITY. ... 
2024 Audio System Wish List
Higher efficiency speakers to optimize my current tube amps (QS Mono 60s) and to lead me toward lower powered tube amps. Heaven help me -- I've got the bug. The bug gets fierce when you're looking at Agon classifieds. You buy things you never r... 
DAC suggestions for a reasonably modest system
Schiit multibit dacs (modi multibit, bifrost, etc) made in the USofA sound better than the Asian chip dacs though the latter tend to measure better. Their real competition are the Asian R2R dacs (Denafrips, Gustard, etc).   
Steve Guttenberg reviews an ATC active?
Steve made the nice review , i think he is most knowledgeable audio expert who can not only made qualified video , also is very helpful  Wow!   
Dual purpose amp
I don’t understand why you’d want to connect an AVR to an amplifier. What are you trying to do? Some people don’t know the difference between an AVR and an AVP, some just use the terms invariably, like I use to 😀 @cleeds He would connect a... 
Experience with adding super tweeter?
When I started a thread on this topic, I got posts telling me that it is not possible for me to hear high frequencies and it's just impossible for the supertweeter to make a sonic difference. Ignore the naysayers if they chime in. There are man... 
Outdoor Bluetooth Speakers Recommendation
@ellajeanelle ,  I have a large  deck above a patio+hottub. For either location, i don't have a permanent outdoor solution, currently. I carry one of these indoor lightweigh musiccast speakers ( speaker+amp+dac+streamer single box,  linkable to ad... 
recommend PRAT Integrated amplifiers (not Naim)
PRAT is heavily influenced by speakers, dacs, the recording themselves, etc. Perceptively, I'm not sure how anyone's able to boil it down to an amp in a listening test. On the same note, the Yamaha A-S3200 is a great amp, going back 15 yeas now a... 
Advice wanted for small factor office speakers
Drop the Pyle barrel bottom crap and go with Yamaha's multizone eco system. Even non-audiophiles have ears....they can quickly tell the difference between a "Pyle" of junk and good ol' Yamaha.  
Here's to the temperate, the gentle, the moderates in audio

Comparing Legacy Focus snd PS Audio FR20
Legacy Audio has a longer history of designing speakers. PS Audio is fairly new to it.  The Legacy Aeris, as @audiotroy indicated, seems like it has the recipe for a good thing going, i.e., to marry it better to a room, etc.  
Borresen Loudspeakers
I believe that todays high-end speakers are grossly overpriced in general and especially Borresen's upper tier speakers.  Although I do believe that Borresen's entry level line of speakers do represent great value for the money.  Borresen does ma... 
Kids, Dogs, and Speakers
I should have thought of this before, but the Wilson WAMM Chronosonic would be very stable. While tall, they weigh 900 pounds each. Oh, they are a little more expensive. 😊 Sure, granpa always had 350k to spare in his old age and the physical ab... 
Active vs passive crossover
@erik_squires ​​@phusis , there needs to be no additional adc/dac conversion if one chooses his front end gear wisely, i.e., keep it digital --> high quality dac+dsp+crossovers processor all in one device. A couple of minidsp devices come close...
