As he promised, Guttenberg reviews the Eminent Technology LFT-8c.
There are many paths up the mountain of good sound. If I had an 8B I would upgrade all the jacks and xover parts and wires with the best stuff (including 12 gauge wax foil coils that are cryoed and used in the best sounding direction.....going int...

Yes, its cheaper if you buy it directly from Giandel (for now).  If you cannot figure out this inverter thing with research then just call me......I can walk you through it.  I will put more info on my site in a few days that will give more detail...

I use an all in one Goal Zero 400 watt inverter (do not recommend).  I modified it so its fan will not come on.  I cannot afford even the $300 Giandel right now (soon, I hope....please send money....he he).  I have turned on several people to the ...

I recommend that particular 2000 watt Giandel inverter because it is FCC approved so may have lower noise.

Ralph, So, you are an expert on damping? You spent hundreds of hours with various damping materials and used them everywhere and you know which damping materials are linear and which are not and where to use it and where not to use it? I doubt it...

Using a Gan 1 or VTV 300 in your system is a lot simpler and cheaper than using other GaN or mosfet class d systems.  When yyz is comparing his less than $2K (WITH MODS) GaN 1 with his $12K amp he is also using a $3K preamp and a $2K DAC with anal...

All power supplies have a sound. "Properly designed" is not a static thing. The more you know (by listening tests) the more you know that changing one cap or diode or whatever on a power supply makes a serious difference in sound.....as I stated b...

Technics SE R1 plus its SU-R1 digital front end.....someone A/Bed it with the Su R1000 and said it was noticeably better.  It has giant linear power supply.  The first GaN amp available and maybe still the best?  This baby uses GaNs and switches a...

The first person in the world to hear a modded Nilai amp gave me a little feedback today. " I know I have a lot of break in to go on this one but so far am liking what I'm hearing (replacing a very nice tube amp; too hot in PHX for that right now...

I am very sensitive to hardness.....me no likey.  I bet my mods to the Peachtree amp would not only address that issue but make it sound better in many ways.  Since I modded its cousin, the LSA Voyager couple of years ago, I have come up with a co...

If someone posts here on or some other thread I read and I feel that information is not "experienced truth" then I will make sure I post my experienced truth so people can decide for themselves (with listening tests).what is actually true.  The mo...

Mapman, Using a lot of feedback to create super low distortion numbers does not make a product superior sonically to an amp that has less feedback.  Ralph uses way less feedback in his amp than Purifi and it probably does not measure as well as H...

I don't know about feedback but I have seen a couple of posts by your customers saying they hear great differences in balanced cables using your balanced gear. There is no made up story....you have claimed over and over again that balanced cables...

Do not follow/believe someone.  Think for yourself.  Try out various things and find out what is true.....FOR YOU.....on your system  What is stated on this or any forum are just words......you will know with your own ears....what is real.
