    Need stereo recommendation.

    a lot of people who know the acronym for NAD still call it NAD (like myself) just an fyi, lenbrook owns both nad and psb...www.lenbrook.com also, as speakers are really important, dont go by reviews, go by your ears...you really need to demo them... btw you can get a blemished cartoon...

    You're Objective, Mr. Phelps, Should You Decide to Accept It

    confused about a point: 2) If the receiver or separates are new, assume a 25% discount. if i can find it online from an authorized/reputable dealer and its more than 25% off, can i use that price if i provide the link? you make no reference to pricing on the dvd player also, i want...

    Audible Component Differences...A Nousaine Story

    Chu, I wasn't saying that this was a DBT, however, I should have elaborated more. Most people think that DBT's are the best, this was not as good as a DBT. I am saying that DBT's are not 100% conclusive. That's all. in response to: If none of this stuff makes any difference, the only...

    Audible Component Differences...A Nousaine Story

    you know, i have very mixed feelings about this.... first off, i agree DBT's are very valuable. I also think they are not 100% conclusive. If none of this stuff makes any difference, the only things we should look at are features and reliability... if that is the case, how does this...

    Interesting tube vs transistor article

    I showed her some of them once... She looked at me in wide-eyed disgust and disbelief, and said are you making fun of me? and I said, would I have the courage to do that AND then show it to you? she made her "i am confused, but to be safe, i shall glower at you" look an said, know you...

    kind of a poll,

    i want to say this is not for my system... my speakers are not the model for this... i just want to see if people think a pre is more important or an amp... i chose $2k, because in both cases there are lots of options that are considered good... the integrated would be a really...

    kind of a poll,

    im not looking for explanations and definitely not arguments. I am asking everyone to please just answer A, B, or C.. this is just for 2 channel, assume for digital source, and its your money, so it can be either tube or solid or hybrid or digital or whatnot which would you rather have...

    Interesting tube vs transistor article

    Chu, I actually only meant the last one in your 2nd reply to the thread. Basically, I don't know who half those people are is the problem. Now that a buddy moved out of brooklyn, and i only went there for poker and parties, I only go to Brooklyn if Im going to luger's. Yogi, if you want to...

    Interesting tube vs transistor article

    I don't get half of Chu's analogies, for the record. Also for the record, i have that issue, and it was a horrible horrible article. I think it was an embarrassment to publish it. This isn't 16th century theology meets atronomy. btw, Yogi, good luck in Cali but I would highly disagree with...
