Once I heard those Tympani I's, nothing else would do. I bought them, and bi-amped them with a pair of ARC tube amps. But I missed the sound of my Zildjian and Paiste cymbals (I made recordings of my...

Good stuff, ds. I first read a subjective review upon discovering Stereophile in '72, when it was a one-man operation, the man being J. Gordon Holt. JGH is still my gold-standard of reviewing, for a...

Reviewers over-stating sonic differences is common and widespread. Small differences are exaggerated, becoming "game changers". I hypothesize it is done because, if there isn't a major difference...

If I didn't have room for a pair of planars, I could definitely be happy with a pair of LS50's. I compared them side-by-side to a pair of Magneplanar 1.7's a little over a year ago in a fair sized...

I thought both the Emotiva and AVA units remove both kinds of hum. Obviously I was mistaken!

There are four differences between the F12 and the F15HP:


1- 370 watts in the F12 versus 600 in the F15.


2- Different drivers, of course. The DS1510 woofer in the F15 has a larger, more...

Taking the signal from a power amp is what the binding posts on the non-XLR Rythmik plate amps are for! Maybe not as optimal as a line-level feed, but some owners HAVE to hook up via the high-level...

I doubt there is anyone who has heard both the F25 and FV15HP in the same room/system other than Brian. But the F25 has a pair of 15" woofers per sealed cabinet, the FV15 a single per ported....

Another consideration with 8" drivers is listening volume. A pair of 8's may actually go almost as low as a 12, just not to the same SPL. Or, perhaps the dual 8's actually will play as loudly and...

The use of matched subs refers to sealed versus ported rather than to a mixing of models within either group. F25's and F15HP's, both being sealed, will work fine together.
