Amplifier Pairing with Coherent 15s
@nordicnorm : I am powering my 12’s with a Coincident Dynamo 34SE MKIII amp that puts out a whopping 8 watts. Which is more than enough power for the 12s to sing. The Coincident is being fed by a Don Sachs 6SN7 linestage. Good to know! The 15... 
Amplifier Pairing with Coherent 15s
Oh, another I have been looking at is the Triode Lab 2A3 EVO, but know next to nothing about them.  
Amplifier Pairing with Coherent 15s
@bjesien : Leben CS600 with KT66 would be great. the little 300 is great too but I liked it more for guitar and vocals than thumping bass type of music. I've owned the Mastersound 300BPSE, great amps. There's a compact 300B for sale on Audiomart... 
Amplifier Pairing with Coherent 15s
@soix : What type of sound characteristics are you after with the new amp? Wide and deep soundstage, wonderful midrange and vocals, not overly harsh on the top end, full bass without being too sloppy. Overall, I lean toward liking the slightly ... 
DFW folks - anyone have these speakers I could listen to?
@kennyc I’m also heard the Tannoy at the LA THE Show. Sonically I wasn’t impressed- seemed like the sound was from old tech speakers. Fyne was established by past Tannoy employees so their offerings are more advanced than Tannoy who doesn’t seem ... 
DFW folks - anyone have these speakers I could listen to?
The Tannoy GR room at the LA show yesterday was the worst room of show yesterday at LA.  Going back today.  I'll stop in and see if they got it worked out at all. Jerry Ouch. That's a shame. Sticking with Tannoy and moving up the line was my '... 
Fyne 703 vs Sonus Faber Olympia Nova V
@overthemoon Yeah, it comes down to system pairing mostly, from my experience. I've heard some amazing SETs with low low power drive some pretty hefty speakers pretty easily, with beautiful results. It's just...not easy (or cheap) to test a ton of... 
Fyne 703 vs Sonus Faber Olympia Nova V
@overthemoon Great! I've gone back and forth about the Nova III vs the V. I started looking at the III since its price is more in line with the Fyne 703 for comparison purposes, but from what I've read, it's more than worth stepping up to the V if... 
Turntable Upgrade Advice
As a quick note - I ended up picking up an Orbe with a Graham 2.2 arm on the used market - above my budget new, but under budget used! Too good to pass up, I thought. Should have it set up by this weekend.  @rhg3 I picked up a Hana ML for it for ... 
WhestTHREE signature phono pre vs. ModWright PH 9.0X
Seems like the 9.0X will be the way I go! Thanks everyone.  
WhestTHREE signature phono pre vs. ModWright PH 9.0X
@rsf507 i don't think so. I didn't see it there either. Still some places selling it online, but it may be discontinued. There doesn't seem to be a replacement in that price category anymore either with a stand alone power supply from them.   
Tannoy Turnberry vs Fyne 502SP?
Speaking to some other owners of the NAT HPS, it seems like a common consensus is that it can lack some bass power but does have a really nice midrange and really fabulous detail, so a bit torn now. I may end up saving a bit and looking for a dem... 
WhestTHREE signature phono pre vs. ModWright PH 9.0X
@blisshifi @laynes Thank you both! That is valuable feedback. I haven't really see any pop up on the used market, so I assumed it either wasn't very popular at all, or people love them and don't want to get rid of them to upgrade very often!  
Tannoy Turnberry vs Fyne 502SP?
@grannyring that's what I thought about Fyne. Totally explains how they were able to hit the ground running since they have all that experience coming from Tannoy, and from what I've heard from owners, they've improved upon it.  The circle labs o... 
WhestTHREE signature phono pre vs. ModWright PH 9.0X
@paulietunes I agree. I have been given some good recommendations that weren't even on my radar in the past. There's so much gear out there, especially in the mid-range price points. @audiosaurusrex Thanks for the info about the modwright. Pretty...
