Ah, I see. You don't want it known what DACs/models you were testing with, you're just hoping to float this grand experiment you did with a sample size of ten. But that's much too small to get any...

Sorry, what? You say you tested with one group of 10 people? It seems you don't remember the brand and model of these DACs. Were these standalone DACs? Or are you talking about some kind of...

Over the years, you have never been able to have anyone successfully tell one DAC from another? What exactly does that mean? Were you experimenting on people, or was that just lazy sentence...

They're talking about this amp on the Emo forum, and comparing it to the old Emotiva UPA-5, released in 2009 and then canned I think less than 2 years later. Now that I think of it, many of their...

That's an interesting development. I don't think anyone has a 5 channel 120 wpc amp, a great price too.

It sounds like the Pioneer is a pretty nice unit. I'm a Denon fan these days with the Audyssey room correction, but all of the major brands make excellent models, especially once you get to the...

Hi, you didn't mention what amp you own currently or perhaps this is an all new system? The reason I ask is it's good to know what you're familiar with in terms of features, sound quality and usage....

I've noticed that the XPA-7 amp seems to not be getting any love. Over the years there's been a fair amount of clamouring for a 7 channel XPA amp, but perhaps the price tag is a little high?

Give them a break? I gave them a large chunk of my money, and then wanted some clarification, that's not being unreasonable. I didn't hang up on them 5 times, they failed to pick up a call 7 times....

Paradigm has come a long way since the Mk3 series. I'm not a big fan of on wall speakers, I'd think that the bookshelf version would be superior. But we often need to make compromises to get to the...
