The Music Room - Boulder Colorado
I have been in this hobby for decades buying and selling on Audiogon since it was started. For the most part my experiences have been positive. However, the “market” has changed over the years and to be able to run a profitable business on line th... 
Great Qobuz streamer. Upgrade from Bluesound Node 2
Bel Canto Stream is a nice choice 
Recommendations for high quality Streaming Audio:
Bel Canto STREAM with Qobuz app embedded in their own Seek App. $1600 for the STREAM (new) and $15/mo. for the Qobuz subscription. You will never look back my friend. 
Qobuz Special Offer
I just subscribed for the first time. A stone cold bargain. Period. 
Considering Harbeth C 7ES-3

McIntosh MA5200
I know this is an old thread but I just got a MA5200 and could not be more pleased with its sound quality driving a pair of Spendor SA1’s. Plenty of power, typically registering 10 - 15 watts on the meters, runs cool and sounds clear without any g...

Is There a Speaker for Me/Impossible Requirements? (budget: $2000)
Falcon Acoustics RAM Studio 10 or Studio 20 (full disclosure I own a pair of the Studio 10’s).Non-fatiguing with excellent imaging and great bass performance for their size. A bit of a sleeper right now as their NA distributor recently changed to ... 
What are the speakers you very rarely find in the Used market(Audiogon or Anywhere)?
FuselierWent out of business many years ago but John’s speakers were way ahead of their time and in some ways remain SOTA. John recently passed away and I count it a privilege to have known him back when he was designing and manufacturing loudspea...
