    Harman Kardon HK AVR 520 for sale - $460

    I got an extra AVR520 from It will cost me shipping both ways to return it. So I thought I'd offer it here to someone who might be in the market for a new/unopened AVR520. Asking $460. If you pick up in the SF Bay Area, you won't have to pay shipping! Box goes back in two...

    AVR 320 binding posts??

    They should just call it a 4-way binding post. I went through this "fit a square peg in a round hole thing" too! Swami

    CD vs MP3 (sound card/computer related topic)

    Use the MAD input plugin for winamp. Get a decent soundcard (not soundblaster!) Maudio Audiophile 2496 is the usual suggestion. Or you can buy a cmedia 8738 card like I did and use the midiman maudio 2448 drivers. The problem with soundblaster is that it converts the sampling rate from 44.1 to...

    Left Front Channel much louder than the right.

    I dealt with this issue and got quite frustrated. It happened with a pair of Axiom M3Ti's and then a pair of JBL S38. Switching speakers, speaker wire etc didn't seems to change a thing and there seemed to be no consistent pattern. Pretty soon I was questioning my own hearing :) The left speaker...

    Left Front Channel much louder than the right.

    I had a similar problem with my Studio 60s. Turned out to be a combination of speaker placement and bad speaker wiring. Check them both out. Swami

    If its too good to be true then it probably is

    I had a problem with a transaction right here on this forum. This guy says that he has an SPL meter in "like new" condition still in plastic bag he bought it in. So I bought it. And it turns out to be atleast 3 years old. Thing is that it did come in the plastic bag he bought it in 3 years...

    a Classical Music discussion

    Another alternative to the misnomer of "Classical Music", as suggested by a music appreciation course I listened to (from the teaching company), is Western Concert Music. Swami

    Paradigm Studio 60 manual

    ^^ Anyone? Much appreciated. On another note, what kind of spades do you use to connect the speakers. The binding posts seem to be 3/8 rather than the more common 1/4 Thanks Swami

    Paradigm Studio 60 manual

    I was wondering if some kind soul could fax/mail me a copy of the manual. I bought a couple of used 60s which came without a manual. I feel kinda naked without it. Please PM me for a fax number. Thanks Swami

    How to test speakers are working fine

    Hi, I bought a pair of Studio 60 v1 (which sound awesome by the way). For a while today it seemed that the left speaker was somehow lower in volume than the right. It seemed to happen at various places (both highs and lows). What compounded the problem is that the left speaker is about 2...

    Paradigm Studio 60 v1 vs v2

    Bookshelf shootout! Axiom M3, Mini Monitor, and some GRs...

    This is kind of on a tangent and a newbie-ish question. I have the M3Ti's and am wondering if a pair of Monitor 7's is a worthwhile upgrade. Thanks Swami
