Is Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF) sexist?
Of course not.There is no such thing as sexism. It was made up by Marxists who seek to destroy the family.WAF just means you care about your relationship and are willing to make sacrifices in your hobby for its sake.

Spade vs bare wire
I've tried it all. The TLDR is that bare wire would be 100% better were it not for the fact that a larger gauge wire than will play well with a binding post sounds better than a gauge of wire that'll easily wrap to a binding post.The trade off of ... 
Can you live with your current speaker until you die?
Exemplar Horns driven entirely with Exemplar gear and cabling. Stillpoints throughout.I have yet to hear a setup I'd rather have.

How about a list of speakers that are time and phase coherent? Thiels and what else?
Had a Meyer engineer bring a SIM over. He measured my horns and said he's never seen a phase response that good w/o DSP.They're Exemplar Horns.

Stillpoints - snake oil?

Horn based loudspeakers why the controversy?
Horn hate is just sour grapes.A great horn system requires the space.It took me months to find my 21' x 37' listening room 
Opening a can of worms
The better my system got, the more of a difference tweaks have made.Active shielding on vs off is a pronounced difference.Just getting my cables off the floor made a difference, too.Now I've fully 'tismed out, and my speaker cables only have 3 poi... 
I need a good Preamp

Best full range loudspeaker for the used price of 10 to 13,000 dollars
at that price range you can get reference quality sound.  The most immediate thing I noticed about your current speakers are the 90db sensitivity. If you're going to be spending that kind of money, there's no reason to not get significantly more e...
