      Thanks for the shout out, Bixby! The FS52 seem like a great fit for home theater applications. Surprised Pioneer discontinued them

        It's kindof funny, I sold some nice stands and fancy PSB bookshelves and got both towers new for $110.

      If you listen to speakers- Do something to your room acoustics. Makes more difference than worrying about what new dac or amp to buy!

        Biggest is placement, to avoid peaks and nulls based on listening position, second is taming first reflections off side walls. I use some big canvas framed paintings (no glass) with quilt thrown over it. One on each side wall approximately where first reflection would be. I raise them off the floor with wood plank to get their centers in line with tweeter height.

        Hope it was worth it. (Multiple choice decisions are hard. Or maybe I'm just indecisive) Will you be posting a write-up?

        I thought @Marvey - nemesis of all tube rollers - bought all the 6SN7s in existence from ebay during the week before Saga and Freya launched.

      Listened to Andrew Jones and the new Elac Adante AS-61 stand mount speakers. Viewed the Elac Miracord Anniversary turntable, pretty!

        I think there's something about speakers that can go 30+ KHz*... my UB5's highs are really at a different level (when the digital front end is really good.) Go back to my energy veritas & they sound grainy until you get used to them again!

        * Well that, the concentric drivers, internal driver / ext passive & Andrew Jones :D

        That's okay. I have an Audio-gd S19 that weighs 3.5x as much as my MacBook to take care of that issue.

        Wonder why I cannot see Thad's comment in this view but I can see it in his profile?? Yea, now that the little ma-350 has a new regular price of under $30, I had to grab it. A bit on the bassy side but while walking it is appreciated. Now if I only knew where I put my spinfit tips?

        funny Bixby's was the name of a retail audio, photo, video, computer store I helped start in Seattle in the late 70s, talk about dating ones self, haha. I started using that moniker on audio forums decades ago. Interesting that Sammy picked that name for their Siri, Google, Watson clone.

        The library being culled is on hdd but has actual cds as the archive media, both are going if the album does not make the cut. Also about 300 vinyl disks are about to be cataloged, inspected and sold.
