  • That'll teach to you to go to Japan!

  • Yes, the most difference, versus upgrading the PC on preamp, amp, etc. I already have WW Eclipse 7 and Equinox 7 ICs and AQ Bedrock SCs. tonyb wrote: » Most difference ?? Don't know about that, but I can tell you every cable in the chain wil…
  • @nbrowser I get that the foam/rubber baffle is to protect the back of the woofer from water exposure that it'll see in the area inbetween the door. It seems like this is at the expense of dynamics and low frequency response though, due to it stiflin…
  • I liked the vibe and attitude I got from the gentleman I spoke with at PS Audio. He was able to answer all of my questions, and was very friendly. His positive attitude is basically what solidified my decision to go with PS Audio. It's remarkable th…
  • I'm sorry to hear that you had such a shockingly bad experience with a Polk product. Sorry, I couldn't resist. But in all seriousness, I hope it wasn't too bad of a jolt that you got. kthomsen wrote: » I just handed it over to POWER in Oden…
  • It went pretty smoothly, the instructions on the website were adequate to get everything going. The only thing I may need to go back and revisit is setting it up to use a static IP address. Also, I need to figure out how to get di.fm going on it, si…
  • Removing the rubbers and going with a 50-75w x4 or even just a 50x2 for the fronts only will go a long way toward improving their performance. There's a huge difference in 18w/channel coming from a head unit, and 50w of clean power coming from a ded…
  • Why's that? Sounds like that was an interesting conversation. afterburnt wrote: » The president of Parasound told me not to buy a Zphono.
  • Update: VTI will be shipping me a new 7" frame section. Thanks so much @helipilotdoug for following up with VTI on my behalf and taking care of this for me. I literally did not have to lift a finger, as soon as @helipilotdoug saw my posts he was …
  • I think they must've changed the design and/or the way they are made. I just went and tried to pry, pull, and yank at one of the caps until my fingers were red and painful. It's fully stuck on there and isn't budging. stangman67 wrote: » The…
  • I just had conversations with both AA and PS Audio. The conclusion is that I will be going with the PS Audio Dectet.
  • Due to the modular nature of the design, it might not be necessary to send the entire unit back. I believe I'd be satisfied with just a replacement 7" shelf that isn't as wonky as this particular one. From a shipping costs perspective, it's proba…
  • Hey Kerry, you are right. On this one particular shelf section, the caps aren't fully installed and seated on the ends of the tubes. Additionally, there are small raised lips of metal on the end of the screw holes that you screw the spikes into. …
  • It's pretty difficult to illustrate the issues in photos, but here are some anyway: All of the other metal shelf units are "acceptable", but this one should not have passed QC, imo. I'm tempted to just order another shelf.
  • I should be used to it by now. It seems like with every major purchase I make there's something not quite right. I have bad luck I guess. halo wrote: » Sadly, you never know what you're going to get these days. The rack I had from VTI had no is…
  • The section that I posted about earlier is the only one that required brute force to try to bend and fix the alignment, which I was able to do. The others are aligned as it stands currently, it's just visually disappointing to see the silver caps…
  • I figured at this price point that the quality would be better than this. I had a few more alignment issues with another frame piece. The end caps did not seem to be hammered down all the way, they are simply not installed evenly. I couldn't get …
  • Yeah, I see now in the instruction manual that they mention a rubber mallet may be necessary due to things getting knocked out of alignment during "shipping and handling". AKA, if your rack was made at the factory on a Monday vs. a Friday.
  • I used my feeble nerd arms to use brute force and bend it, and now it's aligning better. Yay. machone wrote: » It should align itself once the rack is loaded with equipment . I had one like that with my VTI. Edit: Tony, it was one of the…
  • Nope. All of the points have screwed in fine so far with no cross threading or seizing issues. It's just the physical alignment of that corner's shaft I think. If I grab it super hard and pull it aligns, and then when I let go it goes back to mis…
  • Trying to put together my VTI rack right now, and one of the points doesn't line up with it's recession below. It's "off" and not aligned properly. Not sure how to get around this.
  • Which model specifically? Joey_V wrote: » I believe the reference.
  • I'm a little confused at all of Furman's offerings, like Reference vs. Elite and their sub models. From a strictly 2 channel music standpoint, which Furman is the absolute best for audio?
  • Hah, same here, but early 90s and it's a Zenith. Still works perfectly! gwh wrote: » I have and still use daily a Panisonic alarm clock my parents bought me around 1981.
  • You just exactly described my car's behavior. Takes a good long time for the oil to fully come up to temp, but once you see that it's hit 200-212 and you hit the gas, it's all smiles. I've never tried my 6004 with my AG2! That's a good idea. n…
  • I tried to get a friend of mine, who listens almost exclusively through headphones connected directly to a PC, interested in the Asgard 2 the other day. I spent about 10 minutes explaining all of it's little quirks and it's excellent sound quality, …
  • Hah, just giving you a hard time man. Obviously it'll sound excellent since anything passing through an Asgard 2 sounds great! nbrowser wrote: » 0, considering I don't do drugs...lol I just happen to own all three devices without wires to ho…
  • Sorry about that @dragon1952, it looks like our posts crossed in transit. I always enjoy hearing about people's first hand experience, so that's why I reacted negatively to a dismissive "There's probably quite a bit you don't know" type post. dra…
