Huh?

Recently got a turntable, and am impressed with Parasound's phono preamp section. I've literally never heard records sound this good. The turntable is a Pro-ject Debut Carbon, not that far...

In which case the Emotiva might be on the bright side too. It's hard to say without knowing more about the speakers, or if the bedroom is carpeted. The biggest improvement in electronics might be...

I just read Andrew Robinson's disclaimer, it appears that he's been reading threads like this and now amends his CYA disclaimer page. The point is not whether he can still keep his objectivity...

The Hegel is rated for 2 ohms, you don't see that too often, at least with the brands I typically follow. Nice stuff with those Revels, I bet they sound killer!

Wow, that's pretty good and I'd be interested in the Zdac but to my surprise I've recently moved in an analogue direction with a new turntable. With the P7 and A21 I'm really enjoying records!

There is very little. I've been reading that records should be cleaned with liquids, and on another forum they've had good success with a foaming spray, but I haven't tried any of that yet. And I...

That's fine, but if you weren't arguing "against those points" then why bring up Stereophile or the "hey, people make mistakes" defence? Hey, don't worry about it, usually I can follow your train of...

I concur, the disclaimer should even go in the body of the review, not on some back page that very few would see. But it is what it is, and another fumble in the story that is the XMC. Actual owner...

Yes, that's issue one. The way Duke is talking, he may not be insured. Aside of all that, a budget number should be decided on, and any features that are a must. The 3808 has long been eclipsed by...

A few thoughts. So if Stereophile does it, then that makes it okay? I will answer this one for you, no it does not, and the sterophile thing a a red herring. If it's wrong, it's wrong. There are...

Okay, it's been about a week now, and I've started purchasing used vinyl and testing out the Carbon. On some recordings I find it's actually better than CD reproduction. A really nice lush sound...

Nonsense. This is his job, his BOSS should be pointing out any unprofessional conduct(which this is), and apparently this situation sits just fine with Emotiva. It damages their credibility too.

Wow, I've read several of his reviews over the years. His credibility has now dropped greatly in my eyes. Whatever he does after the fact is covering his butt. Good grief.

For the fans, there are little round silicone bumper pads that are attached to kitchen drawers or cupboard doors to dampen the noise of doors closing. They have a sticky back and I was able to...

I don't think they are going to recommend a bad performing preamp and thus ruin a potential repeat customer, and they are a dealer with a good rep.

You have given a couple of class A amplifiers, which are a different animal than Emotiva's class AB. Class A amps are sought after for their pleasing distortion qualities(even order vs odd order). ...
