Good Speakers for Rock and Roll Under 15K
The reality I think, is that rock and roll goes hand in hand with loud. Anything can play loud, but so much music is compressed, as so many speakers. This is why I threw in that jazz piece as a demo for everyone to try. Playing Satch and Ozzy mean... 
Good Speakers for Rock and Roll Under 15K
Play " Housed From Edward " from Trio Jeepy. Not rock. But crank this, and see what your system brings to the table. Being there are fan boys of all types, and those stating mine is bigger than yours..... I Love my Lascalas ! BTW, interesting that... 
Ribbon cable inside amplifiers
I had an AGI 511 preamp for years. It used a ribbon cable that went from the board to another board of the rca connectors. A popular upgrade for this was to remove the ribbon cable and use good quality shielded cable to each connector. A very larg... 
Preamp Recommendation for First Watt F4
I am using an Usher P307A with my rawsonte F4. Possibly the best amp/pre combo I ever had ( with Lascalas ). Enjoy ! MrD.  
Good Speakers for Rock and Roll Under 15K
Dynamics and transients are key characteristics in producing lifelike sound. I never heard an 86db speaker excel at these, no matter what amp / amps were used. Keep in mind, rock and roll recordings are generally very compressed, compared to class...

Your greatest high end audio purchase!!!
After 50+ years, I am beginning to think, it is my latest acquisition, from my friend Tim ( rawsonte ). Tim advertised a diy F4, the F4 being one of a hand full of Pass amps I have little experience with. Using my very much needed Usher P307A, it ... 
McIntosh 2.1kw amplifier?
So much hatred and disgust here. @emergingsoul , I am just a curious fellow. You seem to post a lot, of benign things that seem to matter a lot to you, making me wonder if you ever take time to listen to music. BTW, the new Infinity QX80, with Kli... 
Using PA Speakers In A Home "Audiophile" Application!
Not many speakers can output ’ what I want, and expect ’, out of a speaker. Every time I listen, I am truly blown away by the " experience ". Listening through my Lascalas, at the decibels I enjoy, it IS an experience. Let me just say....I use an ... 
Using PA Speakers In A Home "Audiophile" Application!
When Paul Klipsch designed / introduced the Lascala, it was for PA use. I was the 1st in Brooklyn to have a pair for home use...going back a ways.
