Hello-! I'm back in audio, after years of moving and blue'toothing. Pulled out my old Vandersteens last XMAS, to find several drivers dead. Sucked the last of my parasound's juices in a few months of running one pair of heavily discounted Klipsch RP260's, and then upgraded to another pair of discounted RP280's; replaced the Blinky paramount with a NuForce STA200, and a piece of Schiit - the Saga. Also running a Marantz AVR, SR 5013, which seems to be the source of some loopy grounding issues. Lately, I ponder Ohm Walsh's, Open Baffle and DAC's. Looking forward to learning and listening, in this new (for me) kind of community. Best,The Glistener
Hello from Cali as well, Though I'm a newbie here as well Only a cautionary note to add on speaker/amp selection. If tubes are a consideration at all, be wary of "mainstream" mfrs impedance claims. I've auditioned and measured several, Revel, Klipsch, etc., and though rated at 8 ohm, the RARELY rose to that level. In fact often dipping below 2.5 ohm! This can be problematic for quite a few tube amps. The Revel F208 uses 4 ohm drivers for the mid and tweeter, with with dual 8 ohm woofers = 4 ohm. An amp with good current capabilities is neccessary (tube or SS) for best results. Anyway, welcome aboard from a fellow newbie, and Californian!
