    Stefan Audio Art not around?

    Thanks for the reply. Those Audio Art cables look very nice. I have a feeling you are right about SAA, which is a real shame. There is some activity in the comments section of the site (such as it is). But nothing really. I remember seeing a discount code for new year's 2019 as well... I...

    Stefan Audio Art not around?

    I am trying to purchase a 5 ft. HD800S cable from them. Pricing is strange. The 5FT is the same cost as the 9FT on the website so I sent an email and called a couple of times. First email sent was 01/16/2019 and followed up with phone calls on the 22nd and today, the 24th. No response. Is...

    Inspire IHA-1 tube headphone amp

    Yes. I have a feeling that if any benefits are to be expected from a separate power supply it would involve making it a different amp altogether. The price would be three times higher and it would only make it incrementally better in terms of sound. Dollar of Dollar, this is one of the best...

    Inspire IHA-1 tube headphone amp

    That SLP 05 looks like a very serious piece of kit! If you do try it I would be very interested in impressions, in spite of the fact that I am not in the market for one. It seems like the price is pretty high for this, in the $8-$9K range? I continue to be very satisfied with the IHA-1. As...

    Jazz?

    From your enjoyment of MMW, you might want to check out John Scofield's funkier stuff.  I think Scofield "A Go-Go" you will really like (with MMW as his backing band).  And Grant Green "Alive."  I think another entry into jazz from the funky side would be, as you mentioned, Miles' stuff from the...

    Takatsuki Electric TA-300B

    Sceleratus:  From what I have heard from an Audiogon member who has listened extensively to the Takatsuki, Royal Princess, and EML 300Bs, I don't think anyone can go wrong with ANY of these tubes.  This is hearsay, but I think these are all TOP contenders and preference will be a matter of...

    Pictures Of Your High End System II (Same Rules Apply)

      Indeed, my room is very small.  You can check out my entire setup here:  http://forum.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/fr.pl?vopin&1288645177&openmine&zzTjkurita&4&5#Tjkurita   The dimensions are approx. 15' long by 9' wide with 8' ceilings.  I have used sound absorption panels and foam bass traps from...
