    Pioneer from the 70's. Their 'SX series' stereo receivers were 'the cats meow'! Quality build, aesthetically gorgeous, and they performed very well. I still prefer those analog tuners with the...

    'Budget' preamps like the Dared or Little Dots do NOT suck! They are 'giant killers', especially with good NOS tubes, and sound superb with good source and speakers. Sure they are no VTL, Cary, or...

    Hilarious! Nice to know I wasn't the only wingnut doing this. Probably measurably reduced my MPG's in that VW. God, I wish I had taken photos!

    Well, these were never in sunlight. They were in the living room area (north side of house), where curtains are usually drawn shut. When I did have curtains open, the sun can't reach them anyway. ...

    All great suggestions, but since I upgraded to MG12's, I don't need the MMG's anymore. They are taking up too much physical space.

    I know from time to time, people look for just one for a...

    SOLD Magnepan MMG's (black color)

    I have a pair of Magnepan MMG's (black), cosmetically 'like new'. I am the original owner, and they were used in a non-smoking, non-feline, temp controlled environment and cared for meticulously.

  16. Anyone ever have their HOME floor speakers in their car/truck/SUV's?!

    I remember the crazy **** we used to do when we were teens and 20-somethings back in the 70's and 80's (for me)! I had a huge, heavy pair of 'Technics' 3-way home speakers with 15" woofers that I...

    I've never heard an MP3 type file that sounds as good as a very well recorded/mastered CD, XRCD, HDCD, or SACD! That said, 'lossless' sounds excellent. I still prefer the higher end compact disc...

    SACD vs. HDCD?

    Many of my HDCD discs sound just as good as SACD! What gives? Am I going deaf, or is this possible?
  19. Are there alternate tweeters for the 'Monitor 10's?

    When it comes time to replace the original tweeters on my Polk Monitor 10 speakers (purchased in the mid 80's), must I go with Polk tweeters, or is there an 'aftermarket' replacement, or other things...

    Denon DCM-370 mods?

    I've heard that if you disconnect the wire (unplug it) going to the headphone jack on the DCM-370 HDCD player, you will get better sound. Something to do with added distortion introduced by the...

    Good question.

    Generally speaking, they can drive more efficient speakers (in the 90's db-wise) to decent sound levels. This amp is more for listeners who don't listen to their music too loud. ...
