Best speakers circa 77-79'
My vote would be the Snell Type A 
certin speaker makers harder to get dissounts fro
No Manufacturer can tell a dealer what to sell the product for ...period...if they do they are breaking the law, in fact I do believe it was the hifi bus that made this so, I think both B&0 and Pioneer were charged with this in the 70s....anyw... 
Naim Audio - Threat or menace?
a follow up, if your considering diving into naim, I would suggest the following, either the 5i or go right to a 202/150.....to get the most out of the series 5 gear, you would get all the boxes, 112/150 and a flatcap, nice, but going to the 202 i... 
Naim Audio - Threat or menace?
I have had a fair amount of Naim gear over the years and it definately has a sound, I moved and sold most of it and now am timkering with a 5i and their 112/150 preamp and amp. after 30 plus yrs of listening to different equipment I find myself dr... 
does Queen have better sound quality CD?
I agree with above post about Queen 2 it is a masterpiece...full of incredible imagination and playing....side black alone is a stunner...you can probably find their crown jewel box set in a used record store...long Live Freddie Mercury... I saw Q...

I have owned Type Es and 3 pairs of type As, I think the type A is one of the all time great speakers of all time, when space and money permit, would love to get another pair. 
McIntosh C2200 w/ solid state amp?
I own both the C2200 and the C46, also have the Mac 252 ss amp, both sound mighty nice into the 252, also have alinn ss amp and again both sound nice...I really like them both and glad I have both...they do sound different but both share the Mac s... 
McIntosh - is it that great?
Can't say I agree with the above comment at all, but we all hear what we hear, I have found electronics can make a huge difference in the sound. Speakers, in my opinion are last in the chain, they certainly can change the sound but do they make it... 
Accuphase A-30 or P-3000 for Klipschorns?
I own Khorns and use them with Mac ss gear and it works great, also use linn gear with them and it also sounds nice, never heard Accuphase but it sure looks good. With K horns the better the amp the better they sound, watts is really irrelevant. I... 
Linn Genki - Variable outputs
I have owned both, the Wakonda is better, and Ihave tried a few digital sources directly into an amp, I always prefer it with the preamp, a Wakonda is a great value used, I have one with a Lk 100, sounds very nice 
Linn Ninkas - LK140 on Bass and LK85 on trebble?
get a preamp, insert a wakonda and see what happens,bon voyage...preamps are crucial. 
Mcintosh C-2200 or Aesthetix Calypso?
Hello I will throw my thoughts into the pie, your thread is a good one as both preamps are in the same price range.as far as Mac goes I own both the C2200 and the C46, also have the 252 amp and the 2751v....I have heard in my house the new C1000 (... 
I am openning a shop. What equipment should I sell
It may not be so much as what to sell as opposed to what you can get. I co own a small business and many things come up that are not planned. What lines do you want to carry ?? and are there stores near you that carry these lines ? if so you proba... 
McIntosh MC402 as monoblock?
100 percent agree with Bigjoe's (Mike) comments, I have had all three in my house. I own the 252, and use it with quality but modest speakers, assuming your source and pre are up to snuff the 501s are the better sounding amps. To run the 402 in mo...
