    Best female vocals, looking for suggestions

    I have mostly avoided female Vocals and so am woefully out of my element. After recent acquisition of Jennifer Warrnes Famous Blue Raincoat I find myself wanting more female vocals of the same type quality. I often hear different folks here speak fondly of female vocals and so here I am asking whom you all think stands out in the crowd. I have some Adele, Patricia Barber, and Diana krall and while they are good I frankly feel like they pale in comparison. Could be I obviously have not heard a great recording by any of them Strange how ones musical tastes change over the years...................

    Oris / Lowther setup near NYC

    Anyone looking for a superb horn setup may wish to look into this, price is pretty good they were just posted on audio karma (you have to be a subscriber to view bartertown) offer consists of oris 150, lowther pm4a, and the onken bass cabinet with driver 1500.00 (a steal IMHO) if they were close to me I would already offered to buy. http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/oris-150-vifa-onken-lowther-pm4a.827451/

    as there is no power to the switches I would say mechanical

    Ampsandsound custom speaker switches

    I would tend to agree, but I always defer to the builder that way no hard feelings, Dkalsi I will send to you to test for your needs you cover shipping, If they work pay me, If they dont send them back. I can fit these in a flat rate box I am sure so shipping would be around 18.00 ish Joe

    Schiit sys passive pre / swwitch

    Thanks Carl, 35 may seem high but when you buy from schiit at 49.00 they charge another 20ish to ship so you end up close to 70.00, I think 35.00 shipped is fair, The thing works like a charm and I know it can be used in reverse Big thread over on head-fi

    Schiit sys passive pre / swwitch

    http://www.schiit.com/products/sys They can describe better than me, bought it new a couple months ago and have since used maybe 20 minutes then back in the box. As New sell for 35.00 shipped
  15. As I always do I jump in Deeper than makes sense to most humans, I have a pair of the ACA with linear supplies I use as my Main amps on a Bi-Amp setup and I LOVE them, They are Keepers for sure. so when a 2nd pair came for sale locally I thought Huh why not. Backup is always a good thing. (Right ?) I also had in my mind a 2nd system (as though my space would magically expand and allow for such, Just another lame justification for buying spare gear) Of course I had to have Linear power supplies for the new amps and so bought those as well. I played them and they sound as expected pretty much exactly as my current ACA sound I bought the B-1 off Rich here it is an actual Pass build and it to sounds fantastic, I would be using it but I wanted to Bi-amp my Mains and so Have a custom pre from Justin at ampsandsound that I use and the B-1 sets gathering Dust (NOT COOL). The ACA hold proper Bias and sound great, they are the original 2012 boards they also have upgraded speaker terminals. The build / solder looks very professional I would also consider trading for other Pass amps, or SET Tube Monos / OTL (Just because I cant help myself ) 1000.00 buys everything, both monos, both Linear supplies, and the B-1 Pre-amp, Buyer covers shipping
