Argent Room Lenses?
I am curious about these "things". How do they work? Where do you place them? Are they limited to a certain frequency?Do they subtract sound? Do they add sound? Do they neutralize sound? Is there a way to measure a room for appropriateness? How do... 
Are active speakers the best upgrade
I did it again, PUTTING THE COSSOVERS BEFORE THE AMPS SEEMS LIKE A SUPERIOR METHOD! Sorry! 
What venues are best for selling used equipment?
Mwilson I fear you might be right on re: AGS. Recently I posted a sale for an item that was conservatively rated a 7. No responses. Mean while a friend purchased an item rated a 10. I'll be damned but the 10 was ever so marginally in better condit... 
Are active speakers the best upgrade
I am no expert, but I can't help thinking that keeping the electronics away from the vibrations, magnetic fields and limted heat dissipation that come with most speakers might be a better idea. I do agree that putting the amps before the crossover... 
Which comm. speaker mfgr. makes the best cabinet?

Male Jazz singers - any recommendations?
To each his own, and I wouldn't deny you your joy. But I just can't stand Chet Baker's voice. He was flat, off key and had no range or dynamics. Just an over rated pretty boy junkie "pop" Jazz marketing tool. He left behind a rather infamous reput... 
Best Inexpensive Tuner?
You might find a used Luxman T-117 for under $300. Fair warning, last I heard Luxman no longer supports the US market. 
Male Jazz singers - any recommendations?
Jazz is hard to categorize, but I like Johnny Hartman,Joe Williams and Ray Charles. Good listening. 
Speakers Needed: Audiophile Taste - Low Budget
Please bear in mind that most "bookshelf" speakers sound best on stands out from the walls. As such, they can present a hazard to clumsy little ones (not to mention that many of the stands have ferocious spikes). Even on shelves they must be well ... 
Customer service?
Wait a minute, first I have my faith in the free enterprise system restored, then a "DEALER" actually compliments the manufacturer of a line he doesn't carry! What's going on here, is this a dream? I usually don't have high regard for dealers, but...
