Non-fatiguing speakers in $10K range?
Hi @mikhailark I just got back from T.H.E. Show audio expo in SoCal last weekend. Addressing your specific question I listened to 2-3 speakers that might interest you. The Legacy Aeries was auditioned in the room and for a ribbon tweeter, sounded ... 
Volti does it again!
I visited Greg and toured his shop last summer. I made a special stop on our vacation thru the south. Auditioned the Razz. Sounded wonderful. He's as straight a shooter as you'll find as evidenced by his posts. A genuine dude doing what he loves. ... 
Have you asked yourself this question?
@motown-l ​​​​​​ +1 for emotional attachments. I still get joy remembering that feeling of listening to ELP and King Crimson on my buddy's 1978 Denon TT, Carver Amp and Cerwin Vegas in his attic in high school. Could never drop my analog either. ... 
The Hidden Gem at Capital Audio Fest (CAF) 2023!
@roadcyklr What would you recommend I read to better understand what speaker efficiency really means. I assume lower numbers = harder to drive and poor sounds at lower listening levels. Thanks...    
Upgrade from Bluesound Node
@2psyop ​​​​​​ Is there a SQ difference in the 2 PS upgrades you did? There looks to be a big price difference between the PD Creative inboard upgrade and the Pardo external supply. Does one sound better and how big of a difference do you notice ... 
Downsizing: Separates>Integrated --PSAudio>Pass Labs
I auditioned the ACRH-3, and while a good listen, lacked some bite. I went with Musical Fidelity M6si. 220w into 8 ohms. Dual mono design. Give it a consideration.

Small, Effective Subwoofers?
I use a REL T5 8" downfiring sub. Musical Fidelity M6si integrated and Neat Xplorer speakers. Small sub fills in the room nicely. 22' deep, 16' wide and 10-11' ceilings. Speakers 7' apart and 18" from front wall, chair 8' from speakers. Sub posit...

Gallagher has passed away.
Talking about women and PMS he said it's a real thing that changes you and that they could use that as an excuse for just about anything. In court, "Oh my gahd judge,  why did I kill him? Well it was a just a craaaaazy daaaaay..." :)   
Suggest one obsure album we all should hear
I think if Frank Zappa and Kiss and maybe steely Dan had a kid it would be THE TUBES.  I'm thinking of Zappas humor and irreverence with Kiss stage theatrics with some fine smooth and tight musicianship of Steely Dan.  The album; NOW. Released 197... 
Roger Waters and Graham Nash on The Band.
Summer 1984 Mt Watatic in Massachusetts held and arts and energy festival. The Band headlined. Stage set up at the base of the ski hill. The sloped hill served as stadium seating,  blankets, hippies,  sunshine,  (moonshine) ,  great show! Arlo Gut... 
Integrated amp for Sonus Faber olympica nova 1
@hgeifman ​​​​​​ I also own the MF M6si. Love it. What speakers are you running? SF?   
Looking for something to play?
I like that idea. I have wanted to write down the reviewers demo tracks but have been lazy around that I am starting to record them now.
