Men in some places, live in such close quarters, like rats. Yet we charge high premiums for these places?? There is quite a bit of research about such environments and the effects of...

Maybe it's difficult to call from Norway and not many dealers there.

Well thanks. It's been partly by choice. I had to decide if I truly wanted to be debt free with the exception of a home loan. Thanks for the legal advice that helped me sell my home in New Orleans.

I have thought about that. My experience has been that you just can't get the same sound from multi-channel amps as monoblocks. I had an amplifier that could shut down from 5 channels to 2 and with...

I had forgotten that my speakers at 86db sensitivity at 8ohms are actually as sensitive as speakers rated at 89db at 4ohms. The 20T is 90db sensitivity and handles high power amps. If the Prometheus...

Part of the reason Theta cited for not upgrading the Xtreme dacs was because it was difficult to make one that sound better. They feel now that they have done that with the newest Xtreme cards. I...

I was joking. You should know that by now as many shots as I've taken at your "Cardas Clear," LOL. I make my own cables. My point was that I love Stereophile anyway. You need to get off your "high...

It's going to be system dependent. My speakers are 8ohm speakers with 86db sensitivity. As you know I'm thrilled with them, Mcintosh XR200s, but they need big power amps to run full range for movies....

Probably not as much as you might think. I hope your not expecting there not to be any differences? Stereophile finds differences between cables, wire, so I would fully expect them to find the...

No thanks for posting this. I could never figure out why the 6 channel Digi out card would fit and the new Xtreme cards could not.

I got mine in the mail today. It's a rave review. Best amp the reviewer has had in his system in years. Recommended class A in Stereophile. It's on the cover of the magazine.

Theta gives a 5 year warranty on the Casablanca. Repair cost for out of warranty stuff is not expensive when it's possible on older gear. Really if you are not a very wealthy person such as myself,...

I am the only one that noticed Larry Greenhill's equipment list includes Theta Prometheus amps in the last Stereophile? I am guessing this means that he is the one that is reviewing the Theta amps.

These are "straw man," arguments. I think you should just admit that active preamps add gain and stop trying to refute points I did not make. I will not even entertain this one. :p

Active preamps add gain, Steve Kale. Whether the amp needs the max boost is a separate issue.

Right, the vast majority of preamps on the market are active, add gain, voltage. Passives are so few, that it is hard for me to even think of many.

Steve Kale, well if you are counting, that makes the dacs in the new Xtreme cards 2 years newer than the ones Datasat is using. I bet Trinnov too.

Yes and Theta uses a custom filter for the Gen VIII. Either method will yield a SNR for the D/A of at least 10db higher than the 118db of Trinnov or Datasat's processors in the new Xtreme D3 card....
