    JBL HDI-3800

    https://www.audioholics.com/bookshelf-speaker-reviews/jbl-hdi-3800 Thanks Mazer, for the post. I have not heard these yet so can't compare them to my JBL 4367's

    Some Vindication: PSB and IsoAcoustics integrating Isolation into Speakers

    Thanks for the post Flint, I never did buy into the Spikes are best theory. Just never made sense from my understanding of basic physics. I I never thought about it being commonplace in pro audio. I bought some sorbothane hemisphere's last year but have not installed them yet.

    Bose closes all US stores

    https://www.businessinsider.com/bose-stores-closing-us-brick-mortar-2020-1 Not so much a reflection on Bose, as to the increase in buying products online.

    Magnepan 30.7s For Condo's at Quintessence Audio in Chicago: TitaniumTroy Version

    On the other hand it is Dipole Bass, which has less impact than bass reflex or sealed woofers. As an example my old desktop hybrid planer (Monsoon) satellites, had a sealed sub. It would cause my neighbor to bang on the wall even at moderate levels, I upgraded about three years ago to an all...

    Magnepan 30.7s For Condo's at Quintessence Audio in Chicago: TitaniumTroy Version

    This black looking Triangle tower is the woofer module, four 6 1/12" bass drivers per side in a V shape configuration, open baffle. 1k watt of active DSP power that can be EQ'd for the room. This video does a better job than I can do explaining things with better pics.

    Magnepan 30.7s For Condo's at Quintessence Audio in Chicago: TitaniumTroy Version

    First off much thanks to our host Quintessence Audio of Morton Grove IL, they were very nice and put out a great spread of food and drinks. Their rooms are much more acoustically treated the last time I was there four years ago which I appreciated. I would like to tell my story by repeating...

    I have decided I don't need surround sound, ever

    Since I worship at the house of imaging/soundstage, I find that truly impressive. Bravo Franklin, or maybe I should be congratulating Flint Acoustic's your speaker manufacturer.

    Acoustically recorded 78rpm disks

    Well, that was interesting. The live recording on the cell phone camera, sounded pretty good. Then you have the playback of the 78 mmmmm, let me see here. You have high surface noise, sound seems very compressed (but hey it's done un-amplified analog so it must be good), various noises coming...

    My top speakers to hear at AXPONA 2019

    Finally I heard the Huge Magnepan 30.7s, soundstage was very big. It's mid bass is supposed to be the gold standard or such was said about their older discontinued model the Tympani. I wasn't feeling it, I was missing the impact of my JBL's 15" woofer. I liked the soundstage of the LRS better...

    My top speakers to hear at AXPONA 2019

    Didn't really get a chance to hear the YG Acoustics subwoofer or the Von Schwiekart's. For me that sound of not being a speaker and the performer being in the room with you. Went to two planer speakers, an old mostly original pair of electrostatic Quad 57's just so clear and pure sounding...
