RMAF 2008 - Your impressions,...
The CD's...Most that folks brought in not only did not highlight the capabilities of system. I think I only hear a couple that I would have used myself. I suppose that is to be expected. I try to play music that actually breaths life into the perf... 
RMAF 2008 - Your impressions,...
GloryYou are correct. Our room at the RMAF featured the Playback Design and other gear most folks have never heard. We did have a few people who came to our room and asked us to play their CD's. Most sounded just like you said. "like shit" I prefe... 
Amp for Quad ESL 57
Ralph I am a dealer for deHavilland but I recommend that anyone interested contact Kara Chaffee directly. This suggestion was more for Ggavetti. I doubt that the Mr T would like the sound at all. 
Amp for Quad ESL 57
My vote would go to the new 50A amplifiers from deHavilland. These are re-makes of the original 50A's made by Fischer in 1954. We used them at the RMAF with WB speakers. Kara has used them with Quads. I promise you won't be disappointed. You can c...

Whos Going To RMAF 2008 This Year?
Hope you guys come by our room in the Conifer One on the main floor behind the elevator to the 5th. floor, not the one to the tower. Amazing how many people don't visit the rooms on the main floor and head right up to the tower. We are going to ha... 
Playback Designs MPS-5 CD/SACD Player
No vinyl in the room this year. We have in the past but this year we are going to focus on the electronics. deHavilland and Playback Designs. In past years listeners come in our room and always ask "what kind of speakers are those", asking about t... 
Playback Designs MPS-5 CD/SACD Player
First a disclaimer. I am a dealer in Colorado. I have been looking for a high quality player for a few years, having never been convinced that the expensive ones were worth anywhere near the asking price. A friend mentioned the Play Back Designs. ... 
Speaker shopping Help?
My experience has been that some speakers have that room filling sound and some have that more sweet spot type sound. Some "load the room" and some don't. Not sure it is a question of size. I used to sell the Reference 3A deCappo's and they really... 
Whos Going To RMAF 2008 This Year?
I have some two for one discount coupons for the RMAF. If anyone would like any let me know. It is a really great show, especially for guys who listen to music. Not a lot of rooms full of capacitors and OEM stuff. (can you get Lamm amp for the pri... 
Spilled marinara sauce on wood speaker....
Well now don't spill vodka on that stain.....You might end up with vodka marinara sauce.... hey that doesn't sound like a bad idea for dinner. I will ask my wife "cup cake" if she would prepare that for me... 
What makes up an
I agree with mrtennis.. If only we could take the listeners out of the equation. It does raise the question. "If a system is playing music and no one is present, can it really be called music.?? One way to take the listener out of it is to send hi... 
How Many Turntables Have You Owned
I wonder if all you Vestigial guys owned the ADC (was that the name?) high compliance cartridge. That was the must own cartridge with that arm. (so I was lead to believe) My Transcriptor or as I called it the Gold Octopus was so sensitive I had to... 
Spilled marinara sauce on wood speaker....
Time to sell those speakers..... Just say they were made in Italy...that should be explanation enough. 
What makes up an
One of the very best ways to achieve a hi end sound is to place your system in a smaller room. Avoid the need for a PA system. Seriously.... I think that in less expensive gear that tubes can create magic that solid state often misses. Now with a ...
