    I appreciate that and the demonstration. I just wasn't sure what you were demonstrating as there's so many variables.

    As far as the capability of YouTube to distinguish differences in a demo like...

    Yikes, this Audiophile should lose his/her membership card for playing music in that room. YouTube is good enough to show how bad that room sounds. There is no way one could judge that equipment.

    So, we're saying the same thing. If he can hear an obvious difference in pink noise between these 2 amplifiers, one (at least) doesn't meet that standard. Only the very best and most expensive...

    I'm not sure what the debate is here. Transformer coupled tube amplifiers with high output impedance, and solid state amplifiers with low output impedance will almost always sound different in an...

    Yeah, that was some bad marketing. They're really more similar to the flu shot, designed to give our bodies a heads up and produce some antibodies in reaction to the shot(s) so if we come into...

    Well, there's certainly a clearly audible difference listening through my earbuds which is nice if you're trying to demonstrate a difference. I think/assume the complaint about "auditioning" speakers...

    No doubt! John's done all my re-cone work and more. He's been of invaluable help with my projects. Plus, he's just a joy to be around, :)

    Okay, great! Maybe we'll get a chance to meet up sometime now that you're a little closer. I think you started a thread last year about a new house build with a dedicated listening room for the...

    Paul,

    I thought you were located in California? Did you move east recently or did I just have that wrong?

    We need to find some (or a) youngin(s) to learn this craft from Ken before it's too late.:) It's not unlike the lost knowledge of making vacuum tubes.

    Not sure I understand about the surrounds. Those are E-145 woofers and have an accordion surround. Speakers look pretty good but that price for a clone seems high.

    None whatsoever. You must have had a good listening session last night. :)

    Are we to assume you have confirmed this law of nature, or are questioning it's validity?

    Nice philosophy and completely reasonable prices for that used gear to give people a chance to get into audio without breaking the bank.

    I think our man Steve has 4 of those bad boys in that closet now, doesn't he?:D

    It's probably the file size. I recently had to resize a photo to post it after getting that message. I texted it to myself which automatically resized it and it loaded.

    I'm not sure if this is the mounting kit in question, but with the UREIs the E-145 was recessed into the baffle so the frame height above the baffle matches the 2215 that's sitting on the baffle, and...

    Barry,

    I'm not familiar with either of these amplifiers, but I'm intrigued by your observations. Casual interwebs reading appears to suggest the SAE amplifier has quite a complex variable gain...

    :) Understood, but the "C" version is all JBL. E-145/2425 on the coax and 2215 for the helper.

    The UREI 813C/815C large format monitors are single amplifier models.

    Barry,

    Like you, I currently feel that amplifiers (solid state) of like design and specifications sound the same, especially after some extensive A-B-X tests I did with some engineering friends...

    Nice collection of speakers, and dedicated listening room. I'm jealous of both. :)


    I agree with you here. At this point, realism has become a high priority after being exposed to several systems...

    SET amplifiers have high output impedance and pretty much all recent JBL speakers want to see an amplifier with low output impedance to better control the speaker.

    Instead of compromising...

    Wow, what a stunner. So sorry to hear this news. 72 seems ridiculously young. Kudos to you Mr. Widget for following your instincts and reaching out to his family. He will be missed here.
