    Best Amp - Speaker Combination you've ever Heard.

    I have been enjoying both my main and bedroon systems and I think I am enjoying two of the best amp - speaker combinations. In my main system, I have a pair of Spectral DMA 80M monoblocks driving a pair of double Quads. In my bedroom system, I have a Spectral DMA 100S amp driving a pair of Von...

    Are Transports Obsolete?

    Hi 3125simon, Physically the Vitus MP-T201 is big and very heavy. Sonically, I would say it is as musical and as emotionally expressive as the Flatfish transport. I betters the Flatfish in detail retrieval. The same music when played through the Vitus sounds so much richer.

    CD Transport vs Music Server

    The pi-tracer is truly amazing. I regret not buying it when it was still available. I was so impressed with the way it sounded that it gave me thoughts of giving up all my cartridges and to go all digital. A flat fish is also nice but of course not it the league of the pi-tracer. Muralman...

    Can Horn Speakers Disappear like Planars, Stats, and Omnis? Is the Disappearance Act Subjective? Or based on Placement and Partnering Equipment?

    bonzo75, I am sure others have heard the magico horns. They were on display for more than a year in The Sound Chamber in 2009. I listened to the pair every time I visited Hong Kong which at that time was almost monthly. I actually bumped into Alon Wolf while he was setting it up in The Sound...

    Zero Distortion: Tango Time

    Part of enjoying this hobby for me is having different equipment to rotate around to change the flavor of the sound. For me the more toys, the more fun.

    Spectral DMA 300 RS/SV

    hi Hiempie, I have a DMA 100S driving Von Schweikert E3 Mk II speakers in my bedroom system. It is all cabled by Masterbuilt Performance line power cord, interconnect and speaker cable. I have not encountered any problems with this combination.

    Recommended Spectral amp

    I personally like the DMA 90 a lot. I just don't have one as I gave mine to my sister. If you have not experimented with power cords and Center Stage footers yet, I think you will have more improvement trying after market power cords such as an old MIT AC 2 and installing Center Stage footers...

    Watt puppy 5's

    I had a pair of Watt/Puppy 5. I remember that adding an aftermarket Brisson puppy tail vastly improved everything. If you can still find one of those Brisson puppy tails, you just might be surprised at the potential of the Watt/Puppy 5.

    Spectral's website

    I don't visit other websites so I would not know, but why would they be hostile to Spectral owners and enthusiasts?

    Audio and Retirement--Is There A Linkage? AND, Do I Have An Antidote That Will Make Me Happy? Luckily I Do!!!!! My “Almost Bucket List System” Pt 1

    Russ, I do not know if the Herbies will help under the 9s. Perhaps Leif can answer that. Leif recommended I put the Herbies under the spiked feet of the E3. In my case, the Herbies extended the lower frequencies and opened up the sound stage. I was just wondering if you also installed...

    By the way Russ, when you listen to your E3Mk2s, do you remove the grills and have you tried the Herbies Audio titanium spike decoupling gliders on your E3Mk2s?

    Hi Russ, Thank you for your kind invitation. I am excited and happy. I live in the Philippines. I don't care which speaker will be hooked up. I totally agree that the visit has to be healthy and safe. I believe the airport here is "shut". I have heard of very few people travelling and it...

    ULTRA 11 AXPONA Premiere Retrospective

    I agree with what Mobiusman says about the Endeavor E3 speakers. I enjoy rotating equipment into my system but I have not had any urge to ratate the Endeavor E3 speakers out of the bedroom system yet.
