Has anyone had some ear time with this Core system? I've read glowing reports as well as bad ones. The Amazon reviewer Ryan posted has actually modified his report to say the fidelity improved quite...

Yes they do, but I don't think they would all fit in the same segment. I look at Adcom as what we used to call "mid fi", Sony AVR as something you'd see front and center on that special shelf behind...

Show me where I said it was mandatory. My explanation was anecdotal, nothing more. It had to do with my personal experience with Stax.

Another anecdote:

When I had moved into the car hifi...

I guess I should have explained that all. My entire system was taken down by a surge. Speakers, amp, tuner, preamp - everything. Since I was in transition from a rental apt to a new home I figured...

Entirely enjoyable. The purer the sound I listen to, the more intense it can be. I've had it as long as I can remember. When I was very young I learned to close my eyes and listen and watch the...

I wasn't using my head. I kept focusing on the 4 screws Monoprice includes with the kit and completely ignored the 6 holes in each half of the mount pan. I ended up getting a pile of 90lb toggles in...

I think thats just trading one problem for another. The anchors will still have to overcome the distance through the drywall, furring strips, and Tuff-R board before they get to the block.

To the first, I don't think so. Any anchor that long would have a larger cap to it, which might cause problems with the mount. Toggle bolts might work. The hardware store isn't far away, so I'll make...

That could work, but it will add 1-3/4 to the standoff gap behind the display. I'd like to try to minimize that distance. I considered a similar idea, but using a big piece of furniture grade plywood...

I don't recall saying I was an expert. I'm not, and the sarcasm isn't well received in this instance. Personal experience doesn't make you an expert, then again, neither does education. So I doubt my...

Now you're assuming that the things I see when I'm listening to sound are being influenced by biases. No. Or maybe I'm just biased about that. :cool:

Easy. Get a copy of Billy Cobham's "Warning" CD. Put the dial at about 3/4 and leave the room.
