Need some advice on replacing a B&W tweeter
Youtube has shown how easy it is to replace them.  I could not tell the difference on my N805 when listening. My kids pushed in one of them years.  It was a cosmetic thing for me to change it 5 years later. Good kuck

Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!
End game does not exist in Agon.  
anybody running dual NAD C298's?
NAD not a popular brand on Agon.  
Big speakers, are they really the best way to get great sound?
300k and 800k got me. Nothing a $5-10k speaker couldnt do for vs something costing that much more. Tower speakers > Bookshelf any day  
Speakers 10 years old or older that can compete with todays best,
I think its not just speakers, its the amplifier and source too.  New equipment has the techology along with electronics/caps to play the new music so the synergy with the sound more fast pace imo.  Like my pair of Elacs with ribbon tweeters.  My ... 
DAC DIRECT IN TO AMPLIFIER OR TO PREAMPLIFIER
I'm a fan of less is better, for less distortion, plug a DAC directly to the amp.  No need for anything else.  Get and integrated and your set.  Many people feel.a pre amp is needed, but I feel for its purity, I'll let the amp do the talking. Some... 
Accuphase E380 or E4000 integrated amp important from Japan
I prefer Luxman over Accuphase.  Luxman build quality is 2nd to none.  
Anybody using tube amps to drive Thiel CS 3.7's ?
Tube amps are not best pairing.  The 3.7 dip to 3 and 4 ohms,  I've heard the 2.4 with Primaluna100 tubes and did not sound as good compare with a ML331.  3.7 is awesome speaker and would sound good with any amp, you just want to feed it the watta...

Best way to clean glossy finish on speakers?
I use a microfiberr cloth on my Elacs 403.  Im sure there are some swirl marks, hard to keep then new like a black car when I was 20.   
Wharfedale Lintons ... Any great amp pairings?
@chrisr , agree. They sounded good with Emotiva monoblocks.  I was quite impressed.  
How serious are you?
Depends how much your system is worth? < $500 = sounds good to me $1,000-$5,000 = Im readung reports and recommendations $10,000 = audio Junkie $25,000 = I love it and I'm happy $50,000 = divorce dicussions $100,000 = no.longer a hobby an... 
Are higher end preamps worth the investment when you are only streaming Tidal & Spotify ?
I've always felt a preamp is over kill.  An amp with a volume knob is what I like. Or controlling it from a pc or a source is best.  I feel the more connections with a rca or balance inputs has another transfer signal losing its purity imo.  
Have you upgraded from a Freya?
I sold mine. I like the matching pre amps that are made for the amp. The synergy is the best imo.
