Alpha Core Goertz
@ozzy  They are about 4 inches long and the connection points are bare wire.  From my own use and reading they are usually used at the speaker end and one network is placed between the positive (+) and negative (-) ends of your terminals. As you... 
Alpha Core Goertz
@ozzy  I believe The Cable Company sells the zobel networks.  I am not sure they will sell them separate from a cable purchase or not.  
Big speakers, are they really the best way to get great sound?
I recently heard the Sonus Faber Lilium speakers driven by McIntosh MC451 dual mono amps via MSB streamer/DAC/pre in a room best described as medium and it sounded beautiful.   
New speakers unveiled from Clayton Shaw - Caladan
@soix @woodsage  So, what’s your point here cause I don’t see one.  A guy with more speaker design “bonafides” than you’ll ever know in your lifetime puts out what looks to be a potentially very high value product and you have to crawl outta you...

@pennfootball71  I have never owned an open baffle speaker and am feeling tempted to consider this one.  Would you mind sharing what it is about OB speaker that makes them midfi?  
Flat copper speaker cables
I have the Goertz Alpha Core MI-2 cables.  Goertz is owned by Bridgeport Magnetics and I have purchased zobel networks directly from them for using with the MI-2 cables.  I think to purchase from Bridgeport you need to phone them. Last I checked ... 
Denafrips Pontus 2 Price increases
@sawbuck  You have nothing to own up to.  He has 66 posts in 16 years and has to waste one accusing you of spreading false information.    
Denafrips Pontus 2 Price increases
Many people have not realized that the default price listed on the Vinshine website is Singapore dollars unless you hit the drop down for USD.

I am also interested in these new speakers. But someone mentioned what will be the availability of speaker driver replacements if ever needed. This is one of those things I would not have thought about. I am spoiled in that my older speakers use ...

@rpeluso It would not hurt if the individual you are quoting would use verbiage such as "in my opinion" or the like when telling people what is musical or not.  
ARC VSi75SE v. MF Nu-Vista 800
This is from the manual.  But one has to wonder if they are afraid a person new to audio and tubes will shock themselves or if the unit is just unfriendly for anyone, even with experience, to bias. MAINTENANCE Vacuum Tubes It is recommended that... 
ARC amp differences.
@mbarmash Is it possible that your C22 is just ready for new tubes?  They can degrade so slowly over time you don't notice it.  
Magnepans and dogs
@roxy54  My point is that no dog is ever a replacement for a dog that you have loved and lost, but as long as you live, there is another dog out there somewhere that needs your love as much as you need theirs. Take the plunge when you feel up to... 
XLR cables for a reasonable price?
I don't use XLR cables so take this as you may.  But I have read several times where Atmasphere states that the quality of XLR cables is not of paramount importance where both of the components being connected have true internally balanced designs.  
ARC amp differences.
I recently heard the Sonus Faber Lilium speakers driven by McIntosh MC451 hybrid dual mono amps and MSB streamer/ DAC/preamp and it sounded, in a word, divine.
