    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    Robert, Thanks for taking the time to provide these photos, I now understand the situation better and concur with Joe's solution. We can utilize your existing outriggers by fabricating an adapter. That said, there are aspects about the outrigger assembly that I still have questions about. I...

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    Dear Robert, 1 - I'm sorry but I'm confused by this statement. I would be very surprised if the threaded portion of the spike is 44mm in diameter On many speakers, they are M8 or M10 and sometimes 3.4" diameter, etc. And I don't understand what you mean by the 0.6mm step up. Is it possible...

    Do Tubes Homogenize the Sound of Our Music?

    Speaking as a designer, I would consider any tube product that did affect the sound in such a way to be a failure. And speaking as a manufacturer that demonstrates my loudspeakers with what I believe to be (at least) among the finest in solid-state and tube amplification, I would say no. That...

    Hi Will, I'll do my best to answer this great question as I'm sure many are curious about this as well, but I fear my explanation will fail to describe exactly all the differences as well as the similarities. So let me say that if there are any questions about my response, please follow up with...
