    BACCH-SP: The future of high-end audio? Yes.

    I do have some cash to invest in my system at this moment and wondering if BACCH4Mac is a good option. Either I get the BACCH with Mac mini OR I just get a high end streamer with built in storage. My main concern is that I have no binaural recordings and I am heavily relying on Tidal. The music...

    Wilson Benesch TORUS

    Thanks! Can you share with us the cables that you tried with the Torus? Regarding the clad D amp, I ordered a clad D amp (one box) to power both the Torus and I will use an external crossover (built in in the amp). Will report back with results, but will take me time.

    Wilson Benesch TORUS

    Getting a pair of Torus so soon! But feel extremely nervous that I bought a 13 years old technology (released in 2006). I always panic when I think that they might realize a new Torus soon. Can you share with us the position, crossover settings, platforms under the Torus...etc. Pics would be...

    Wilson Benesch TORUS

    I assume the you run the Resolution full range and the Torus at low crossover value? Which frequency you set the crossover? Also what about position? Do you place them in corners or next to the Resolutions? Directly on floor or on a platform?

    What do Wilson Benesch Speakers Sound like?

    Thanks for the info about the WB speakers. I am considering the ACT evo as an option for my current hunt of new pair of speakers. But I am little hesitant because it has only one 7 inch bass driver. Which feels not justified at this price point. Should I be concerned about the dynamics, slam and...

    Wilson Benesch TORUS

    I am planning to purchase the Torus but I am a little hesitant due to the lack of any kind of evolution to this sub. It has been in the market since 2006 and not sure why WB did not work on an updated version so far. What you are not completely happy with it? Regarding the connection method, I...

    Advice appreciated (SF guarneri Tradition, Focal and others )

    After auditioning many speakers, no way I buy The Olympica i or ii or iii I find The Olympica line veiled and coloured. The whole Olympica line doesn’t represent the new sound signature of Sonus Faber. If you want to know what is the new sound signature of SF, listen to the new Sonetto OR the...

    My experience with Frey2 speaker cable (help plz)

    Hi everyone, recently I had the chance to demo the Nordost Red Dawn on my system. It was nice sounding with more life compared to Shunyata Venom. The Red Dawn was more alive and has more air around instrument. I also asked my wife to help me to do AB blind comparison. Where she changed the cable...

    Advice appreciated (SF guarneri Tradition, Focal and others )

    I had the chance to audition the new Serafino and compared them to the Olympica III. I also auditioned the Spendor D9. Olympica is too muddy and veiled compared the Serafino (I know it is not a fair comparison). The D9 was too close to the Serafino! The Serafino has a HUGE soundstage and nice...

    The new Serafino!

    Glad to hear that you will demo it soon. Not quite sure but is it valid to compare the Guarneri with O3 or Sopra2?

    The new Serafino!

    It is not clear what improvements were introduced to the Serafino. On SF website there is no single info about any acoustic improvements over the Olympica III. They did not release any useful info about the drivers. Just a pure advertisement about the wood, shape, luxury...etc.! In my opinion...
