    Can You Believe This-The Government Wants Us To Go EV but In So Doing They Will impose a gas surcharge

    Electric or fuel cell cars ARE the future... just not with Li batteries! I have no doubt the most efficient car is a small ICE car like a Honda Fit when everything is considered from start to end of the vehicle's life cycle, but with advances in energy storage and generation that will surely...

    DaveC's RMAF 2019 Picture Thread

    As far as YG at RMAF they were a close 2nd behind AlsyVox and actually had a better overall setup and a more dialed demo system. Whoever did their setup did an excellent job, it was the best of the very large rooms and had few of the setup issues AlsyVox did. In fact, if you couldn't separate...

    It was a joke... however, it was true some years ago.

    DaveC's RMAF 2019 Picture Thread

    Well, I can totally see that as the Zus sound like a PA system so it makes it easy to close your eyes and imagine you're at your favorite rock-concert venue. YG just plays back what's on the recording... how boring! ;)

    DaveC's RMAF 2019 Picture Thread

    Lol... they were good... I think they've been pretty similar the last few times I've heard them. They've done a good job keeping the positive aspects of their design while moving the speakers closer to neutral and getting rid of the "PA" type colorations. I feel the same about Zu as I do most...

    DaveC's Best of RMAF 2019: AlsyVox and Omega

    Congrats to AlsyVox and Omega for setting up the best system at RMAF 2019! I listened to this system for at least an hour Saturday and Sunday, some recordings were incredibly lifelike. We've all heard those moments of realism from excellent systems from time to time... this system does this...

    DaveC's RMAF 2019 Picture Thread

    Vivid and Lumin, Excellent! Classe and Magico, Very Good! Polk's new speaker... One of the 2 mid/tweet arrays cancels the opposite side's info so it reduces crosstalk like headphones. The result is imaging somewhat like headphones but not in your head, and it's also less sensitive to...

    DaveC's RMAF 2019 Picture Thread

    Mac, sounding more forward and "modern" than I've heard in the past... Vaughn and Wavelength, excellent as usual! ;) SR, I wanted to hear the Magicos but this was really a SR tweak demo. Not that there's anything wrong with that... Martin Logan and Benchmark, not the speaker I...

    Well Pleased.... This was really good and featured Vinni Rossi's new All-In-One. Like the Lio, super clean and low-noise, extremely impressive sound! Sigma Speakers and AGD's new GaN amp-in-a-tube. This was a super-impressive system, very well behaved speakers that are gentle giants. Sold...

    DaveC's RMAF 2019 Picture Thread

    Rocky Mountain Audio Fest has moved to the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in 2019. This is a big step up from the previous venue at Denver Tech Center and should encourage both vendors and participants who disliked the previous venue to attend once again. RMAF's previous location...

    Very large VAC amps, would have to look up the other gear. I'll be posting pics and info later today. :)

    Alsyvox planars...prepare to sell your Magico's, YG's, Wilson's, Cessaro's. Maggie's, and all others!!

    The AlsyVox/Omega system at RMAF is one of the best systems I've ever experienced. Some caveats apply as the room isn't ideal (large enough but WAY too live) and I can't play anything and everything I want and am familiar with, but what I heard was excellent to incredible. I went for 15 min...

    YG Hailey 2.2, Magico M2 or Avantgarde Duo XD ?

    They are among the best at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, and there are a lot of really nice systems in decent sized rooms this year at the new venue.

    Does My Ass Look Fat In This Bowtie?

    Legally need the rear emblem? That's something I've never heard before! I'm still leaning toward putting it on, the black one does look pretty good and maybe more discreet vs an unbadged car. It's interesting though, without the bowtie very few people know what the car is if they don't see the...

    Does My Ass Look Fat In This Bowtie?

    I'm leaning towards putting it on... It's currently not on, it's was only on with masking tape for the photo. I just got the black bowties, she's been without a rear bowtie for the last year, I took that thing off immediately but I like the black ones a lot more vs gold, looks more modern.

    Does My Ass Look Fat In This Bowtie?

    Same designer as the C8... you can see it once you know and I think the C8's rear is the most criticized. The Camaro is kinda pear-shaped but she's got 305s under those tights! :eek:

    Does My Ass Look Fat In This Bowtie?

    I used to have gold bowties but they're just too bright. I replaced the front one with a black bowtie and am unsure if I should put the rear one on... does my ass look fat in this bowtie?

    What an ass!

    The Vantage is awesome. I recently saw a tennis-ball yellow Vantage at Whole Foods, it's much smaller than it looks in photos and even more beautiful. I'd take one over a 911 on looks alone, but if I was shopping for a car like that I'd be test driving everything I could. ;)

    One more comment left on the new PSR-14: I’ve had the demo power cable for a little over a week and wanted to share a few thoughts about it as I shipped it out today to Burt. I currently use a full loom of Sablon audio gran corona power cables and they are fabulous, but the Zenwave pc was...

    Yeah, I'll give you details privately if you want, but there is indeed high end gear out there with fake or look-alike connectors and I can give you examples of stuff marked up 20x parts cost or more. I also don't understand why manufacturers don't use higher end parts as the RCA jacks and...
