The one brand I would stay clear of if buying used is Adcom. The GFA555 (200W/ch) would seem ideal for Maggies (it's a high-current design), but is a notorious speaker destroyer. Its power supply...

A dealer steered you away from an amp they don't sell? Gee, I wonder why. I've never heard one, but there are a lot of satisfied Emotiva owners, including DonH, who is a very experienced listener. I...

One speaker you should try to hear are the Vandersteen 2's. They retail for about the same as a pair of 1.7's, I believe, and have a similar balance as well, but with the addition of ample bass. A...

Magneplanars, and many other panel loudspeakers, are often mated with a subwoofer or two. That pushes the price of Maggie ownership higher, but gives you the best of both worlds (cone and panel)....

There is always Eminent Technology. They also make Magnetic Planar speakers (they are push-pull, though, not single-ended as Maggies), and there are only two models---a 5' tall by 1' wide panel (with...

9' wide X 18' long? The length is fine for firing down, but 9' is awfully narrow for a panel speaker. Each panel would have to each be right up against it's side wall, for the speakers to be far...

All good and reasonable comments (as usual from Don!). My balanced interconnect runs aren't long enough to be of any advantage versus single-ended in regard to common-mode noise rejection, etc., but...

Where the pre-amp's output impedance is especially important is if it's a passive pre, where the output impedance varies according to it's volume control's setting. I don't consider a passive a...

The acoustic benefit from ASC tube traps is because the traps allow the long-wavelength sound pressure in, turning it into heat inside the contained cylinder. Fiberglass just on the walls will not do...

Do you intend to remain with your current speakers for a while? If so, matching Oak would be nice.

No. Rythmik is an Internet Direct (ID) company, selling directly to consumers. That's one reason for their very high value---no dealer mark-up, which almost doubles the price of a product. But...

Just for clarity, when qguy said the "sub" is not inside a cabinet, he meant the plate amp. Guy, you must have built one of the DIY SoundGroup 4 cu.ft. flat packs. How did it turn out? I almost...

I am always skeptical when Magneplanars are to be inserted into a multi-channel (okay, Home Theater) system. They are, IMO, for 2-channel music listening pretty much exclusively. Unless, that is, the...

If you get the HP kit AND put it in a 4cu.ft. box, the sub will outperform a factory assembled F15HP, with it's 3cu.ft. box.

The greater output of the F15HP is because of the DS1510 driver and H600 amp (the enclosure is the exact same as that of the non-HP F15). Putting your DS1501 driver and A370 amp in a 4cu.ft. box will...

The need and ability to EQ, and issues regarding SQ, have nothing to do with whether you buy a fully assembled Rythmik sub or, rather, a DIY Kit and a flat-pack enclosure. The Rythmik plate amp and...
