OCD mickey website and negativity.
I get a kick out of someone who likes a brand being offended by someone who doesn't care for that brand. Kinda like the guys who wear some dude-who-plays children's-games-for-a-living's jersey shouting done another dude who wears a rival jersey.  ... 
OCD mickey website and negativity.
He’s offensive to the kinds of guys who like the establishment- or long to be a part of it. I think he’s clever and fun to listen to. I also think he’s really good at calling out the frauds- even the ones here on AG who pretend they are audiophil... 
Look at these beauties
I was thinking about a different set of beauties. Slightly asymmetrical, always lovely.   
Value of a preamp?
I have tried using my DAC as a preamp. My first realization was that the max volume was much lower.  Secondly; my preamp "added" something. In my rig's case it added brightness- which I do not prefer in the room I listen in. Perhaps a more absorb... 
Finally...subwoofer that's aesthetically pleasing!
I'm just gonna keep on rolllin' with the gear I got 'till it's time for me to fly.

The fit and finish on the Sonus product is really nice. However as is the case with many Italian "designer" goods (Ferrari, Gucci, et al) the prices are jacked up way past the actual value. $750K for subs?  Are there that many people rich enough o... 
Announcement: Axiom Audio acquisitions of Bryston and Magnum Dynalab

Fleetwood Deville vs Wilson Sound
I find the Wilson towers all very analytical. Almost Teutonic. Cold may be a bit strong but definitely not warm. Recently I listened to a set of Alexx Vs driven by  Burmister mono blocks and preamp. The front end was digital- Aurender. I listened ... 
Mcintosh pre amp pricing
Fair market value is determined by what a similarly motivated buyer and seller agree to- not by asking prices.   
I took Frank Zappa’s advice
Zappa is no longer an atheist.   
Bending Sound
Fuss I'm not sure what your question means. So let's go with the more charitable interpretation- you wonder why a crossover. So: Eric Norgarden of Magnepan told me the maggies do best when they are not tasked with making deep bass- that should be ... 
Led Zep Fool in the Rain
As I understand the lore this was a John Paul Jones arrangement which tinkered with a Brazilian motif. It was written around when Presence was being arranged/recorded. The problem at that time was heroin. Page was truly strung out as was Plant- to... 
list of speakers
What a great site Grisly! Lots to fun to surf .  Thank you for the hard work and clever idea.  I'll bet some speaker manufacturers would buy ad space on this site if you choose to monetize it.     
Ken Fritz article
One other thing hits me about this story. The WP writer seems to imply that striving for excellence is a mental illness. Isn't that just typical of a certain way of thinking espoused by a certain type people driven mad with envy and lust for contr...
