good morning fellow audio enthusiasts.
just joined a while ago, been watching for a while, but finally decided to join.
I am very spunky, if a grown man can use that word,....i may get excited, and throw a couple swear words out there, and will try to cencor myself if I can, but some times i miss 1 or 2.
I am NEVER really serious, i just like to have a bit of fun, so if a fun, likes to h ave a good time poster, gets you upset, pound sand..ok ( there, theres an example, it sounds trite, but is not. ( I guess I have watched too much MOnty Python as a youngster. )
enjoy me, and i will try to pass on some of my knowledge I know, and also " listen " and learn myself in here.
I have been dealing with audio since as long as i can remember, i have ALWAYS wanted a very nice stereo, i have gone through many many brands since the mid 80's, sunfire amp, altec lansing, cerwin vega, onkyo, parasound, and umpteen other brands with different combinations or pre-power, speaker combos, cd players, etc etc. I guess im pretty seasoned as far as audio goes. not the top tier stuff, as its for the elite, and that I am not. I am in the saving mode for odyssey kizmet with all bells & whistles.
My current line up, and dont laugh is those emotiva xpa-1 mono's - their pretty descent, but If i hadnt sold my rotel rb-1090 for t hem, i think I would have opted to NOT sell it, it did have much more detailed bottom end, but the emotivas do have a better mid and high freq range to me. the rotel, just had a nice dark, deep " im the boss " sound through my cerwin vega D-9's. I still have those bad dogs in the basement, and someday will hook em up again. i use now BIC pretty much exclusively, i LOVE the open airy sound theyhave, like that " your there " souond. they did require a good 1 y ear of break in, for the tweeters to calm down, but now....WOW, i have the dv-64, and a pair of dv-84, these are without a doubt the best sounding speaker ive used. and would have LOVED to hear them through the rotel, but im afraid it didnt happen.
The sunfire amp, was probably the best high end amp ive used, but didnt have the bass slam i like, but did have the best upper mid i have ever heard.
I like to always switch stuff around, buy a diff preamp to try with amplifiers etc etc. its a revolving door of components in here, and drives the wife batty. so thats a quict breakdown of a sprinkling of what i have used since the mid 80's, there are many many more, nbuut i would have to go through my file cabinet and go through al the receipts and stuff for a fulkl list.
