The best monitors for $1000 used
Tyler Taylo Ref, JM Reynaud Twin Sig or Triangle Titus ES depending on what you are looking for and what kind of power amp you have. There are many others but if Quad 11 or 12 make it to the top list or ProAc 8 or 1SC, then my list holds strong. 
Tyler Decade D1 or D2 anyone?
Danny Richie, is thatgood news for Tyler? what is he "famous" for? sorry for the ignorance!!! 
Can excellent tubes transcend modest amps?
So a Cayin 70 0r 88 with a bit of tube upgrade may be the best of both world in the budget category? 
Which Integrated got you off the merry go round?
In order for me to get off, I need an integrated which preamp section can rival those of the good $1,000+ preamps AND MUST HAVE two (2) pre-out so I can run a subwoofer and bi-amp or simply use another power amp with the pre-section of the integra... 
Shindo Amp with JM Reynaud speakers?
First, if I were you I'd wait for the newer Offrande Supreme coming out this month as the Signature is said to be too hifi which would explain why JMR is coming out within 18 months with a model said to "offer the best of both the traditional Offr... 
Adcom GFP 750: why spend more?
VTL 5.5 was noisy to start with and had a veil that the Adcom does not. It may be a question of synergy but in my system the Adcom in pasive smoked it. And I was not.

Adcom GFP 750: why spend more?
Monarchy M24 DAC and Classe Fifteen amplifier, I am trying to stay under a grand or so for each component. As for "good enough is good enough", that sure is the mother of all advices... 
Adcom GFP 750: why spend more?
I run it passive and as for "affecting" the musical presentation, I decided to introduce some tube at the DAC and phono-pre level instead. How much would I have to spend to get more of the GFP750 nowadays? I sure know that my $3,000 VTL did not su... 
Tyler Woodmere II: any advices?
I guess this is my lucky audio day! Another fellow Audiogon members from Montreal just informed me he is getting his pair of WIIs at the end of the month and invited me to come with my amplifier, similar room size, bigger in fact. Easy! 
Tyler Woodmere II: any advices?
This is what I received via email from a dealer. Obviosuly, the fact that Tyler is bypassing dealers makes me think these are either irrelevant or faulse allegations but since I have reasons to believe that that person may be emailing other Agoner... 
Tyler Woodmere II: any advices?
I have a Unico Hybrid 80wpc and can always upgrade to the SE if needed if the WIIs are that good. I will check the Linbrook System as well, that would let me some $$$ to upgrade my amp and I believe that Linbrook Sys with better amp will be better... 
Tyler Woodmere II: any advices?
what happened to the price of the Woodmeres today??? from $7,500 to $12,500 for the IIs and up to $16,500 for the larger model? a reflection of value, cost or someone who starts being more "business" based on product reviews?! at $12,500, are the ...
