Did anyone notice that the tower speakers, the Loft 50, have 5 drivers each? I wonder if that would be a tougher load than say a 2 driver 8 ohm speaker. Do these speakers dip down below 8 ohms much?

So, how loud was the rattle? And what was the volume set at? Two things that would determine whether one could hear a rattle or not.

Your experience reminds me. I had a bulk purchase of the Monoprice plugs, and after a year they started giving me problems. They started fitting loosely, and the strips on the banana jack was...

As I understand it, the issue is the weight of the cartridge and if it is too heavy for the very nice Carbon arm that the Project has. I have the same turntable, and have really been pleased with...

Plugs with brass content seem to be frowned upon. Personally, I use the wire itself to terminate the speakers on my high end system. In my theater system I use the cheap stuff with no issues.

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...

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!

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...

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.

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.

I know what you mean, I found a great source of records recently and I've been staying away for just that reason!
