Miles Davis Newbe Question
I was a late bloomer with Miles Davis (jazz in general), and, a friend , Mo, a Miles fanatic, turned me on to him, and Jazz . Mo had every recording by Miles, on either LP or CD, so I thought. I discovered a recording by Miles which Mo did not eve... 
Best drink while listening to your rig?
Spark energy drink... 
The best speaker you ever heard?
HiFisoundguy, We are all happy you love your Bose 901's. Many years ago I owned Original 901s and later some Series 3. They were hung from the ceiling, along an excellent wall, and I used many different sets of electronics available at that time, ... 
Klipsch Heritage Series
Donjr On another thread of yours you indicated you had a problem with the front left corner of your room. Klipsch, as most speakers, do not fair best in corners, IME (K horns excluded). I will say, properly set up, a pair of Klipsch heritage speak... 
Klipsch Heritage Series
I own a Pair of Lascalas, which I have heavily modified to eliminate cabinet and horn resonances and vibrations. I have also built risers for them, which gets them to a better listening height and adds about 50 pounds of mass to each structure. I ... 
Designer Hall of Fame
Please no ridicule(but if you must,go ahead). Although I am not a fan, I believe Amar Bose is one.....Yes I said it.... 
Do you leave your components on 24/7?
Also wanted to mention I will play some music for 5/10 minutes to "open the system up" before I seriously sit and listen. 
Do you leave your components on 24/7?
Both of my preamps (2 rooms) are designed with on/off switches, which control power to other devices plugged into them(I do not do this). The active circuitry was designed to always be on. I also leave my power amps on all the time, as well as my ... 
JBL 250ti
I sold these many years ago while working at an audio retailer. At that time I thought they were a very good speaker, especially for a JBL. Listening to them needed to be done at a distance, as they were not near field. They also benefited from a ... 
small amp
I memory serves me an Adcom GFA535 series 1 or 2 should work. Also a Rotel RB850, which should also match your gear. Both good sounding units at the power/price points. 
Mcintosh MC 2002 or mc 7200
I owned a 2002, as well as other Macs, many years ago, and liked the 2002. It is designed without the Autoformers, which in my opinion, is a better sounding design(please Mc owners do not attack me). I am not familiar with the 7200, other than to ... 
Hi, need help with Snell Type a iii
I would try them closer against the wall, see what happens. Woofers need break in because of the new surrounds. Last, maybe a higher current amp (passive bi amp). 
Most Beneficial Cable Upgrade
If you hear a difference, fine (I always do). If you do not, that's fine too. However, there are many skeptics in these forums who I feel have never tried these changes, so their opinions should not be voiced. This audio game is all about "listeni... 
What is the best power cable under $200.00 retail?
I recently purchased DIY Supra 2.5 and the matching USA male plug and hot wired it to a Soundcraftsmen power amp used in one of my systems. Quieter noise floor, greater speed, more dynamics and greater musical flow over all. This amp did not have ...
