    How will the next generation CLX speaker be better?

    Hola Asindc, You are right. The blend of the Martin Logan BF-210 subwoofer with the CLXs is like they are one. Very difficult to tell. Why? Our ears have no orientation from 80 Hz to below. As an example, when there is 60 Hz noise coming from the fridge motor, or similar, this unwanted...

    How will the next generation CLX speaker be better?

    RJ, That is exactly my point too. Mods are possible for what you like. I have done several to the amp and the preamp too. But contrary of your liking, I love the 6922. This tube does not intoxicated me with too much harmonics content. The average for a bad recording, which I do love because...

    How will the next generation CLX speaker be better?

    Hey friends, I would like to add about the bass of the CLXs and this is what ML says: Low Frequency Transducer DualForce™ double diaphragm, triple stator dipole low-frequency electrostatic transducer » Panel Dimensions : 57" x 11.5" (144.8 x 29.2cm) » Radiating Area : 656 in² (4,228 cm²)...

    How will the next generation CLX speaker be better?

    Hola, just a little words. The CLXs are made by thinking to use with them a sub for each channel and part of their design. The special bass filter that you can download from the Martin Logan site for their subs, BF-210 and BF212, and is the way to go for the perfect bass match. I just...

    How will the next generation CLX speaker be better?

    Thanks RJ, I do know that your CLXs must be sounding as good or better (you have better electronics to drive them) than mines. I assure you that I have being into these by some time too. Before ML, I had the Tympani 3B by Magneplanar, and also the Apogee Duettas. Also had the Beveridge 2SW...

    How will the next generation CLX speaker be better?

    Hola amigos, Now that I have a full broken Conrad Johnson preamplifier ET-7 and a Classic One Twenty SE power amp driving my CLXs, I have to report that this is the best system that I ever had. I love the dynamics, love the timbre, the wide steady stage with the right size of the musical...

    I have another history to tell. Not so far from me, lives a friend who has the Avangarde speakers. He is pro-analogue too. I told him what I have and how happy I am, and he said, come over and bring your dac with all what I need. Same thing happened. The overall sound of both was almost...

    Here is what HQ Player reports of the input file. The sampling frequency is 11MHz...right where it says format.

    No sir...both are almost equal...same timbre with the instruments. Before, this comparison was like night and day, and of course analogue was the clear winner. Right now, it is difficult...both are working and sounding beautifully. Believe me, it is difficult to tell. My system is giving only...

    What is better? Both media have their issues. Don't tell me that analogue is perfect, you do know it is not. And digital has walked forward for better, where I put two songs, one at my Linn LP-12 with a MC cartridge Denon DL-103R and my dac. Adjusting the level equal, using a SPLM. Having...

    Hola Greg, This is what I am having with my new DAC Exasound E-32. I found myself tapping the floor along with the music rhythm. Its another way to listen to the music. And believe me, it is very good too. My conclusion is inconsistent with my argument? I do not follow you here...I am using...

    Greg. when i am saying, digital sound, is when the source of the sound comes from a digital device, like DACs, DVDs, CD players... When I say analogue sound, it is when the sound is coming from the source of an analogue device, like turntables. cassettes, reel to reels., etc. Of course all...

    Well, all I can say is: sound is a matter of liking. What I do like, not necessary must be your liking. In a general way of speaking, digital to my ears, have come to a point that my ears do not suffer as they did before with digital sound. My ears got fatigue in only 30 minutes of listening...

    Hola Paolo, With much respect, your skills are from out of this world. I can't picture myself listening my system mentally. OTOH, this is the why I am entering into the digital world. No matters how many times you play any song, the quality remains the same. On these days, I am really...

    The picture above is part of my LPs collection. at that pic, I think I have circa 3K LPs...having some, I can wait those 24 hours without braking the shape or form of the LPs groves. Believe, this is a good advise... Happy listening!

    I put only two or three drops of my fluid to the tip of the brush, and I do the cleaning tip process. I use the plastic one gallon container that I bought to Nitty Gritty long time ago. I do not see a special plastic or special container. Use the one that you dispose when it is empty with...

    Hola Greg and Kach22i, I learned this long time ago. My LPs are from 70s to end of 90s mostly...and I had to sell my system due to my mom´s illness. Finally she passed, and I do not regret to helped her. Because my background is with classical music, most of my LPs are classical. Of course...

    You are doing the same thing. I do believe that you had enough. Liking digital is your choice. Me? I'm into digital hi-end world since only 2 or three years ago. Since the beginning of digital, my reaction was about yours. My ears was telling me that something was missing and not right...

    Have you listen the E-32 DAC or similar on these days? As you said before, these are for kids...that's the way of how the waveform is plotted digitaly: Here is the conversion of that waveform after the dac's conversion. Here is a Marantz cd player playing 1000Hz sinosoidal waveform.

    As you can see, my dear friend, I have spent some time to listen to analogue...and yes, I do believe that both media are doing a great job on these days. Now my collection at the hard drives, are about 12 Teras...all still growing hopefully. warm regards to all from this small piece of land...

    I just do not want to be reiterative, I just want you to take a look at the scope signal. Do you think this signal is a steady signal? You can see the wow and flutter there too. This is a normal signal from our beloved turntables. Yes, the media is not perfect, the question is: which media...

    Yes Gregadd, I always claimed that specs are meaningless. But I just wanted to show that these specs are very good. I do hear good things that I never thought I was going to have it at digital sound. The natural resonances of the string instruments is what I do like more. With LPs, what I...

    I do...it is one of my endless nostalgia. The covers of the LPs, is what I missed most. The CD information is very limited, if you do a comparison between both, and when you download the HI RES DSD files, they just offer a little comment and the songs. The musician(s) playing and very limited...
