    I bought a TRS80, my first computer in 1984. I think I paid more for that thing than I did for my latest Mac Pro. Maybe lasted me two or three useful years.

    It's clear that RS is long for this...

    My only guess -- and that's all -- is that, through your system, you prefer the ATRAC compression scheme. According to minidisc.org, the format is capable of "near CD'' quality. That generally...

    All,

    Thanks again for the nice comments. I very much enjoyed building and, more importantly, listening to these speakers. The horns were made by a very prominent member of this forum. I will...

    I bought a pair of LE-15As and a PR kit from Hi-Fi Showroom in 1975. There was also another dealer on Big Bend (Hi-Fi-Fo-Fum) near I-40 from whom I bought some D-123a, LE-20s and a crossover in 1973...

    On the KSA 50, my advice would be to pass on it (no pun intended). Unless it has been back to the factory in CT within the past 10 years, it likely has aging components and deteriorated sound. in...

    I have been a fan of the big Krell amps for a number of years, having owned a KSA 100 and KSA 300s. Their most notable virtue is their tremendous bass slam. I am not particularly enamored with...

    To me, and as noted below, the main advantage of an outboard DAC is the ability to use several sources. Although some CD players can accept other sources, a dedicated DAC is likely to be a better...

    And thank you for raising this issue. I just installed -3dB pads on my horns and I am loving the sound. Definitely less "in your face" and more natural. I knew something was off, but couldn't...

    I would look at the newer generation of USB DACs that support 192K/24Bit natively with OSX. Some even support DSD. You may want to browse the Computer Audiophile forum for some ideas.
