    Got home from work and turned the system on for a night of tunes and smelled this from the preamp power supply. :'(

    Set up the Demo L200's, looking forward to hearing what the new design has to offer.

    And Traffic too. ;)

    I play that one every once in a while. I just played it a few times in the last couple of months to test the sound quality of some speakers. I think my CD is recorded with the highs emphasized. It was brutal. But I've heard it a thousand times and mostly it sounded musical. Maybe FM subdues the highs?
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I have that too. :p 2 of their albums. Their not too hard to find in a row of albums either! :)B)
    Maybe that's why I remember it sounding a whole lot nicer before.

    Replaced an Emotiva preamp with a Maverick D1+ and Realistic phono pre. The improvement was drastic.

    Hi Joe,

    They are in a shootout between these ^ and the Polk LSiM 703. I believe the 703's are winning but I'm giving the DBR62's a fair shot (I want the best sounding speakers to stay here). Glad you are enjoying your Adante's!

    Coyotes. No neighbors for a quarter mile at least. If they heard my music playing they'd come over thinking I was having another party.
