    Active Room Treatment (ART) by Dirac

    I have no empirical evidence but I implemented a DriveRack PA2 in my system to actively correct a room with bad acoustics. It has done very well I feel, better than Audessey in my opinion. I have not tried Dirac though.

    Mac instead of minidsp?

    The Mini-dsp is outstanding for integrating subs into a system. I went from that to a DriveRack PA2 however and never looked back.

    Schiit Freya+ Pre-amp Review

    Well what sounds good to me I have found is fat mids (second harmonics?) sparkling highs and tight bass. I seem to like hard to drive speakers with a lot of amperage and headroom. Not for loud volume but for presence.

    Schiit Freya+ Pre-amp Review

    I'm not against or for tubes. Everything under the sun as they say. I have even been looking at some Conrad Johnson pre's. I just want to do enough due diligence to give myself a good chance at doing something right with my hard earned money that I won't just plain regret..

    Carver Crimson 275 Review (Tube Amp)

    If that Fisher was a amp out of an old console unit it had a chassis that was a ground and thus was “hot” and dangerous to touch. That was why it had a sticker that stated on the back of the console that basically stated to keep out unless you were a qualified service person. Danger Will...

    Carver Crimson 275 Measurements

    Much like Jpahere experience, I run my B&W 805's bi-amped with a pair of Carver 275's and even though the B&W speakers are power hungry they play very nice with excellent dynamics. If I use just one 275 they still sound great but don't have as much of the dynamics I like. I have built several...
