    Blown Onix Reference MKii speaker. What now?

    Hi, I know Onix stopped selling/making the reference mkii. What do I do now? Do I look for another used pair or is there a comparable or slight upgrade? I've loved these speakers to death (literally) for years. Love the sound signature. Anything used around a 1k? Thanks.

    New Audiolab DAC

    Does the HE-500 pair well with the M-Dac or would you recommend an amp as well?

    Amp for Kef R300's?

    Great advice. Since I don't have the time currently to visit any hi-fi shops, I took your other advice of ordering units from vendors that have good return policies. I decided on a UPA-200 power amp from emotiva and I'm going to be using my newly purchased audiolab m-dac as the preamp/dac. This...

    Sweet setup! What are the silver things left and right of the monitor?

    Does anyone have experience with the Kef LS50?

    "God Dammit Loch Ness Monster, I ain’t gonna give you no tree fiddy!" Thanks for the suggestion. Amp looks like its highly regarded.

    Does anyone have experience with the Kef LS50?

    I'm starting to get that feeling :o I loved my NAD amp and it seemed to pair really well with my Onix ref 1's. I could go down that route again... Peachtree Audio is intriguing but I doubt I could get a used one under a grand. Too many choices out there! :rolleyes:

    OP here. Sorry to bump an older thread but I finally graduated from university and now have my first full time job. In a couple of paychecks I will be pulling the trigger on the LS50's. However, I do not have my amp since my father purchased it from me to use at the cabin. I've been looking...

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Good advice Wayne. I'm not going to rush into this decision but it was just a thought. Ill do more research on the topic and come to a reasonable conclusion. As for the loaner program, who do I contact?

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    This is a really dumb question but just to clarify the J$ pads work on the 500's right? I'm thinking about selling my 400's and trying out the 500's. The treble spike is getting to me...

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a tube amp or does the HE-400 not play well with the tubes? I'm happy with my Magni but eventually I would like to try tube amplification...

    Yes, passive speakers. Still debating between bookshelf and floor standing speakers but I don't want to go powered. Ill take a look at the stealths but from the looks of it (aesthetics matter in this case), it doesn't look nearly as class as the focus 160's nor the kef r series.

    Review of Audio-GD DAC-19MK3

    Thanks for the link! Looks like my DAC holds up quite well to others in and above the price range. I compared the mk3 to my schiit modi and there was obviously no competition there. I was completely blown away when I hooked up the mk3 with my he-400's. Unbelievable difference in sound. This...

    Quote: That new Focus 160 looks gorgeous. Looks like the reviews have been stellar so far. Need to find a place to audition. Thanks for the mini review.
