New Pass Labs Go To
“Guess he likes the heat” Well I mean he was surrounded by Pass Labs Class A amps… Happy Trails and best wishes Mark! Had many pleasant transactions over the years. Enjoy retirement :)  
Finding a Power Amplifier for Luxman C-900U
@ghdprentice 100% agree with your assessment of the M900u; Had that amp with the C900u, on numerous occasions over the years with Dynaudio Confidence 30, Focal Sopra No2, Dynaudio Confidence 50. Bass was constipated and dry in all cases and in di... 
Luxman vs Accuphase for Harbeth 40.3 XD
@macg19 Congrats! That BAT VK3500 looks great; Keep us posted! I still need to try iso devices under my speakers; I have herbie things between the speakers and Sound Anchor stands.   
Luxman vs Accuphase for Harbeth 40.3 XD
@macg19 Nice thread. I would like to add some additional color for you. This will be long but hopefully not boring 😁 A few years ago, I tried a lovely pair of Harbeth M40.2. At that time I had a system setup in a large room, about 35x40x9 - this ... 
Luxman 590AX II Break-In
@jeffreyw I highly doubt this issue is amplifier/ speaker synergy. It sounds like you want to get serious about solving it, so why not at least rule out room bass mode/null by performing a frequency sweep at your listening position with the gear... 
Luxman 590AX II Break-In
It’s quite possible that the speaker / room/ listening position is manifesting a bass null; I’ve battled this exact symptom for years. If your listening position is near the center of the room this is most likely the culprit.    
I have found out why new cables and tweaks actually work!
Not only could I hear deeper into all of my music but instruments had bodies and height! Diana Krall was so palpably present I wanted to buy her dinner     Bravo Erik! Hilarious 😂 Happy Holidays

Great news @audphile1 ! Enjoy the TF free experience:)@ghdprentice Congratulations on your fine system! I’ve always wanted to hear those speakers; I imagine a musically authentic experience; I once had an Aurender N10; fabulous machine; I was an i... 
Qobuz sound quality intermittent issues?
@audphile1 I am sorry to hear of your troubles but relieved that another person has experienced this (was pulling hair out with this issue). I have experienced various streaming woes for nigh-on three years when I first tread into the deep end of ... 
During this isolation, I would be interested in suggestions of great movies you like.
Member Almarg passed away last night
:(My condolences to the family; Al was a model to us all. Rest in peace 
Update on Audiogon Member Almarg
Very sad to read about this. Al has been a source of wisdom and sage advice, and I warmly thought of him as the Audiogon "dad", a go to kind of guy who never yells, but always instructs.  He will be greatly missed. I will pray for Al, his wife, an...
