    Singlepower SS1. Pics. and impressions.

    The setup is my permanent office setup. It even inspired me to move my office to one with a poolside view and has made me a born again head-fier. Pics with impressions to follow. I'm exhausted and need to go listen to the new Porcupine Tree album that arrived today.

    SL550 or Jaguar XKR?

    I need to buy a car for someone and have narrowed it to these 2 choices. I know pretty much all I need to know about MBs because our family has a bunch of them, but I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the new XKR. Anyone know about the reliability of the XKR and whether it rides as soft...

    Building a new house... help me with some ideas.

    After two years of indecision, I have finally decided to tear down my house and build a new one. My existing house has a foundation issue that is more easily solved by bulldozing. Right now, I only know that I want the house to be between 4,000- 4,300 sq. ft. and that my budget is $1 million for...

    Preview picture of the Singlepower SS1 solid state amp.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Before buying a Singlepower product, it might be helpful to first read through this thread (click here). Though the thread is long, possible issues with respect to product delivery/support might make a careful reading of that entire discussion very worthwhile if you are...

    Soundstage Review on Transporter

    I have 2 Transporters (one modified) and have used them almost exclusively as my digital transports since I got them. Nice review that also concludes that the day of high end CD transports is over.

    Importance of level matching and principles of volume dependent perception.

    Level matching and volume dependent frequency perception... two related topics that are rarely discussed here, although level matching is more often discussed. Anyway, these 2 principles are so important to understanding audio gear that it surprises me that most people here don't seem to care...

    Made some changes to the setups... pics.

    Recently I decided to change quite a few things in my setups. I picked up the Esoteric D-03/P-03 and got rid of the Classe SACD2 and Bel Canto PL-1A. I am getting rid of the SDS-XLR in favor of a custom Singlepower SS amp. I picked up a modified Northstar Transport for my speaker setup as well...

    Can the UE-10s convert an IEM hater?

    I've gone through the gamut of IEMs and really can't stand they way they feel or sound. I'm wondering if the custom molding of the UE-10 and the superior isolation and drivers can possibly address the comfort and sonic issues. I don't mind spending the money, but not if the experience is going...

    Northstar Aberdeen modified redbook transport.

    I use TACT gear in all of my speaker setups, which essentially makes it a waste to have an external DAC b/c everything has to go through the Aberdeen modified TACT DACs anyway. I decided to move my Esoteric P-03/D-03 back in the headphone setup, where I can make use of the D-03. I'll be adding a...

    Ordered the HD25s on a whim... what can I expect?

    I was ordering the XBOX360 and some games from Newegg the other day and noticed they carried the HD25s. I didn't like the other pair of closed cans I have owned (W1000s), but given that the HD25s were only $159 and that I need isolation from time to time, I decided to pick them up. What kind...

    May have a free ticket to see Muse in LA at the Greek Theater.

    A few of my friends and I are driving down to LA to see Muse at the Greek theater on the 19th of July. I picked up the tab for the tickets (which ran about $120/ticket) and don't expect to get paid back for the tickets. Our 4th friend might not be able to go, in which case I would have a ticket...

    Sources... Bel Canto CD-1 and Esoteric models.

    I've gone through a dozen sources in the past 2 years and currently have the Classe SACD2, Meridian G08, Bel Canto PL-1A and Denon 5910. I'm thinking about dumping my G08 for a Bel Canto CD-1. Anyone ever compare the two? I will definitely be picking up the Esoteric P-03/D-03 combo next...

    Quick pic of the latest source for my HT: Bel Canto PL-1A

    After much debate, I decided to get the Bel Canto PL-1A w/ DVI. I thought about getting the EMM Labs combo, but realized I need a universal for the HT. My other choice was the Esoteric UX-1, but I wasn't crazy about the UX-1s downconversion of DSD to PCM, nor the fact that the UX-1 Limited is...

    Anyone use the iClock?

    Anyone have any experience with Mutec's iClock? I only know one person who uses the iClock and he raves about it. He also has a Big Ben and Esoteric G-01, but favors the iClock in his TACT setups.

    Universal or SACD player with 5.1 balanced outs?

    Anyone know of an SACD or universal player that has XLR connections for each of the 5.1 analog outs? The only one I can think of right now is the EMM Labs DAC6e/CDSD combo or the uber expensive TEAC Esoteric P-01/D-01 setup.

    Anyone ever compare the TEAC Esoteric DV-50S to their flagship UX-1?

    I was thinking about using a modded 50S as a source for my 5.1 system, but when my modder opened up the 50S he wasn't all that crazy about the layout of the 5.1 outs on the 50S. I have the opportunity to buy a UX-1 for a decent price and was wondering if anyone ever compared the 2. The UX-1 is...
