Which pair of speakers changed your Hifi life?
A pair of Fisher 101 bookshelf speakers I bought in 1972. Combined with a Fisher 222 Studio Standard receiver and  Dual 1225 turntable. As I recall, the local dealer had a special where you bought one speaker for $99 and the other was a penny. Thi...

What song have you played the most?

Need Help! My Class A Amp Is Running Very Hot

Speaker recommendations for MC275
Probably not an upgrade but I run Harbeth SHL5+’s with my 275 VI and c2500.
