    Best sub for hybrids

    Okay.both svs and Hsu seem to make great subs and I'm not trying to cause a "mine is better" flame war.But does either of these have an advantage when linked with ribbons?i.e. is one "faster" and thus better able to mesh?Hsu mentions on their website they match well with ribbons,which is why I...

    Dunleavy speakers

    Are these so good it would be worth risking buying unheard?I'd rather not without hearing first but theres no chance of that since they went kaput.I'm talking SCII-what would you compare their sound to?

    Phase Tech speakers

    Okay,what does anyone know about these?Heard the 9.1 today and was very impressed.But $1800 is beyond what I wanted to spend,esp. when paridigm st.60's can be had for about $1200.Still,they were nice-a lot of what I like about paradigm these speakers had too,and after listening to them the...

    anyone ever hear of RTR?

    I have a pair of RTR 240D's that have been around since at least the 70's.Bought them used a long time ago and on whim recently hooked them up as rears in my system.To my humble ears they sound pretty good,so I thought I would ask-anyone ever heard of this brand of speakers?

    DVD-A on a budget

    Been thinking about the toshiba 4800 or the pan.82 as a dvd-a player option for around $200.Does either one have clear superiority in audio?How about bass mgt?Can I get the benifits of DVD-A at this price point or should I widen my search?
