For all you Clapton fans....
I refer everyone to the "Best" forum here on Audiogon to get other takes on Clapton. Marakanetz is saying he is not the best, and, that is his opinion. There are more virtuoso players, if this is what you listen for. I, however, listen to a lot of...

Being this is a horn thread of sorts, has anyone noticed in the virtual reality system section of Audiogon, the system/room of Cuong Pham. Talk about a horn......Wow....

Weseixas, you are quite right about damping factor. Early on, with a pair of Gale 401 speakers I had once owned, a Dyna 400 I had laying around made these speakers mushy, slow and ill defined. My Ampzilla really took control of the 2 eight inch dr...

Marakanetz, I understand what you are saying and agree with you. Much of my blues listening does not contain super technical playing for me to enjoy it. I started the thread because I have met so many people who do not know this side of Clapton. F...

Weseixas, P.S. The BC/Uno combo bash is not me. Sorry. Once again you are showing weaknesses in your reading comprehension, and you are getting us all confused. I hope you are a happy person and enjoy life, because you tend to "attack" quite a lot...

Weseixas . I appreciate the response. It means I hit a nerve. Good. My comprehension is fine. Please read the original post again as to what is being said. I am a very bright 7th grader, but please let us know when you are on the show smarter than...

I wanted to clarify one thing. I believe in tweaking, but Mapleshade is not the only alternative.....

RCCC Can you show us an example of a thread here on Audiogon that does not contain an opinion by someone ? I will further state that a debate with you is not of interest to me, for I am on the same side of the fence as the friend you speak of. Why... 
Mapleshade tweaks
Pierre and Mapleshade recommends connecting powered subs using the speaker inputs instead of the rca inputs because of many hours of listening/testing. Their claims of greater coherency and blend with the main speakers seem correct. My ears concur... 
Woof Woof need a little help
Many powered subs have low level and hi level inputs/outputs. These are rca and speaker connections. If the Yamaha amp does not have a pre amp out, look for a sub that has speaker connections and connect speaker wire from Yamaha amp to sub in this...

Weseixas, I believe it was you who said this was not a horn thread. If you read the original post by Renmeister, and I recommend you read it slowly or have some one read it to you, he is talking about 1 problem only. That was the integration or "c...

Unsound, you leave me no choice. If you are still using 3.5s and you feel "they" offer anywhere near the same dynamics as horns (I am extremely familiar with the 3.5s) . I recommend the biggest tweek to you. Qtips........I do hope you "enjoy" your...

Inna, I worked with the Jadis importer during the mid 90s and was at the '96 Stereophile show at the NYC Waldorf as the "demo" guy for 3 days. They were very complicated to set up, as the outboard crossover took a while to adjust and tweek. The Ja...
