    REVIEW: Ray Samuels Emmeline Dark Star Fully Balanced Headphone Amp

    Maybe you missed the part where I said, "Ray Samuels personally builds and tests each Dark Star over a four-day period." He uses mostly American made parts, including the chassis. That's why it costs what it costs. Ray also offers lots of less expensive amps.

    REVIEW: Ray Samuels Emmeline Dark Star Fully Balanced Headphone Amp

    As soon as I heard Ray Samuels' Dark Star at CanJam 2011 it hit me: There are headphone amps, and there are headphone amps! After all, when we're discussing the "sound" of a headphone amp, it would be more accurate to refer to the sound of the amp with a given set of headphones. The amp, by...

    REVIEW: PSB Imagine mini Speakers

    hally,   Sure, you can use the Minis, but since you're also interested in movies you could start without the sub and see if the Minis make enough bass. Then add the sub if you want more bass, you might not. Steve

    REVIEW: PSB Imagine mini Speakers

    ptrok,   Sure, the RWA will drive the PSBs, I've used much lower powered amps with these speakers. The Topping TP 30 does a surprisingly decent job.

    REVIEW: PSB Imagine mini Speakers

    Right, medium-size speakers have an advantage over small ones in the areas of bass and loudness capability. The PSB Mini is a serious attempt at packing the maximum performance into a smaller size. People like little speakers after all. Most affordable powered speakers don't have the greatest...

    REVIEW: PSB Imagine mini Speakers

    DaveBSC,   KEF concentric speakers will probably work fine, but I never used them as nearfields. I just heard KEF will be releasing desktop speakers early next year.

    REVIEW: PSB Imagine mini Speakers

    ptrok,   Thank you. I really love the Mini Maggies, but they are extremely demanding speakers. They can't be placed near a wall, two to three feet from the rear wall is essential. They need a lot of current (amps), and the little Jolida won't cut it. Bass punch/dynamics aren't a strong suit...

    REVIEW: PSB Imagine mini Speakers

    I love the Gallo Stradas, but I never heard them used as nearfield monitors. Nearfield speakers have to create a seamless blend between treble and woofer at a much closer distance than regular speakers. I don't know if the Stradas do that.
