    Note: this is a subjective review, however I will update with REW in the next few days when my laptop is home from work.

    Canton CT-120 speaker information?

    Hello all, I am going to check out a pair of these locally and I was wondering if anybody could find a review or any driver information on them. It’s crazy how this speaker is memory holed online. There is this single audio karma thread and that’s about it. They were apparently the TOTL...

    80hz on my speakers after calibration on Denon AVR? advice

    Okay! a controversial topic! can I ask why you guys say to put all crossovers on fronts centre and rear surrounds at 80hz? After I’ve run Audyssey on my Denon AVR-X2200, it always sets my Fronts, rears and centre at 40hz... I then always change them to 80hz as the recommendations, then I set...

    Triangle Borea Br08 floorstanding speaker review

    It’s not often I purchase gear on a whim. I’m a cheap bastard after all, however when Adorama had the Triangle BR08s on sale for $900 a pair, I just kind of clicked “buy”. I’d seen a ton of reviews for the BR03 all saying essentially, these are the new kings of budget audio (inevitably to be...

    How to properly assess second-hand speakers?

    I have been looking at several listings of speakers lately. It started from a lucky find of vintage Dynaudio Contours that remain the best speakers I've heard until now. However invariably I would be severely underwhelmed when auditioning at the owners place. This lineup of underwhelming...

    speakers for desktop/nearfield listening

    Hi, I would like to get some speakers for my computer desk. Since they will be used nearfield, the most impoartant part is the on-axis being flat i think. I can supplement the bass with a small sub. I have a UMIK-1 to make measurements and I can also run equalizer apo to make small corrections...

    Buchardt S400 or ELAC DBR-62

    I'm after a new set of speakers to replace KEF LS50's (30 sq room). They will be used for both stereo and Movie duties (stereo), and decent bass impact is quite important (especially for movies, as I don't have space for a subwoofer). On paper, and from what reviews I've read, the S400's should...

    Should I get a DAC to replace my dedicated sound card?

    I currently have a Sound BlasterX AE-5 in my gaming PC and I'm thinking about if it's worth it to replace my sound card with an external DAC and headphone amp or DAC/headphone amp combo to get a better sound quality.

    Despite what people say, my JDS Labs Atom CAN power a pair of passive speakers (???)

    I'm not sure if i should be concerned about it, but everywhere i looked i only found people saying that the JDS Labs Atom cannot power passive speakers because the RCA outputs are only for data. Well, i doesn't seem to be the case for me. I just tried plugging into my Atom (yes, only through...

    Suggestion for Monitors/Speakers

    Hello Everyone, I have recently joined this hobby, it seems my wallet is starting to get mad at me. :) It has been a really tough choice for me to decide which active speakers or monitors to get.
