  • $10,500 off sticker really makes it a no-brainer on the Hyundai. H9
  • I use rubber gloves and for signal tubes I usually wait like 5-7 minutes before swapping. But really, you could do it right after power down. Rectifiers and power tubes are a different story. H9
  • Three letters GTI ... ticks all your boxes http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2017-volkswagen-golf-gti-in-depth-model-review You're Welcome H9 P.s. Happens to be the exact model and color I bought.

  • The Santa Fe Sport's turbo 2.0 is 246 hp. Not 274. Just an FYI A buddy just got the 2.0T Santa Fe Sport. It's nice enough and Hyundai has come a long way from it's early days. As long as you keep the extras minimal it seems like a good bang f…
  • A tube buffer or pre-amp or dac don't work at all like a guitar amp. Guitar amps are designed to overdrive and produce different kinds of distortion as part of the signal. Tube audio gear is not! H9
  • kharp1 wrote: » Per the pm, put me in line for possible tube sale. This is what I was referring to is all. H9
  • Didn't know there was a PM circulating about the tubes. I'd certainly be interested to see what you have. I don't really need much since I've got just about everything, but I have a few strays that need mates and/or maybe a pair or two I want dupl…
  • Also with HDMI ARC the volume of just about every commercial and TV program fluxuates, in some cases, A LOT. Don't seem to have that issue with the optical connection. Optical isn't ideal for me since it's hooked to my main rig's dac. I was swa…
  • I really should sit down and make notes of when these glitches occur. I time shift everything on the DVR so I can FF through commercials. It seems when we FF/REW/PAUSE recorded material that's when the sound drops for approx. 2-15 seconds when we …
  • I'll check and see if I have the latest firmware updates as Ken suggest. Maybe that could help.
  • Also as some will attest I am probably pickier than the normal user and perhaps the extra bass I am noticing after break in is a non-issue for most or all of the users.
  • You should consider all that have been sold that don't have issues, but there seems to be at the very least compatibility issues with some of these products and the TV's they are used with. I can only comment on my situation. It's a great soundi…
  • When I first got the system up an running it was a solid 4.5 stars out of 5. Now after break in and the various issues it's closer to a 3 out of 5 stars. It's lost some of it "sheen" in the past 6 months. Because of the various issues that I ha…

  • EE stuff is excellent. It should make a noticeable improvement and even more with some other tube choices. But as always heed Tony's post above......
  • Yeah baby!
  • Heroesunplugged, the SDA's are worth the hassle for lack of a better word. Stick with them and you will be rewarded. H9

  • All I know is Jeremy Clarkson's daily driver is the same daily driver I drive. H9
  • I have to make one more comment. It was never my intent to disparage the Demon. It is what it is......a fantastic American Muscle car and a great achievement for $85K (if anyone can ever buy one for that price). But I just wanted to point of th…
  • If that's the case then it doesn't make my list of fastest production cars. Enough already
  • Ok, Tforan you can have the last word. Tired of going in circles. 9.65 sec ???? what? The Veyron topped out at 254 mph for the open top and 269 mph for the hard top, I'd say that's faster than the Demon. But then it's all open to very wide inter…
  • Ummmm,,,, because it's on topic and the Demon is being touted as the fastest production car ever made. Same was said of the Veyron. How is talking about other production cars in a car thread off topic? This place has gone batty with over corre…

  • Overall I think it's a good buy as an investment. You will always get more than you paid if it's well cared for and only driven on occasion. I don't think you'll be able to retire on the $$$ in 20 years, but should easily recoup any monies spent o…
  • Not trying to take anything away from the Demon, it's an incredible statement piece. I think people get carried away w/pure numbers. The numbers were achieved with slicks at a drag strip. Not on standard pavement, etc. On regular pavement trying…
