  1. “Are You Strictly Tubes or Solid State?” No.
  2. As I kind of posted. We all like different audio. Some like a flat response, some higher than normal level bass, treble, or mids, soundstage, etc, so they’ll prefer their likings even though they may not be true representations of the original recordings or proper audio sound or set up, so these test can not be completely valid, but I still feel there is some usefulness to this discussed test and most test. I’ve learned a lot by doing some myself.
  3. Although this test and all have flaws with none being perfect or us either, it may and others just prove that we all like different audio aspects and therefore as differing individuals will like different audio components be expensive, low cost, solid state, tubes, etc. No two of us are the same enjoying differently including hearing differently as all our senses differ giving us different experiences of the same event.
  4. I agree with JohnA. Speakers have the biggest influence on a system. Good speakers can sound good wired into a low budget systems. For another example, I recently bought a used pair of Wharfedale Emerald EM 99 MK IV speakers and wired them into an old low cost stereo receiver and was blown away by how great it sounded! I knew how important speakers are, but that really demonstrated how important to me.

    Eye Opening Experience

    I had the same experience once at a high end audio store and I’ve been to some. Blew me away! I had no clue home audio could sound that good with an incredible three dimensional sound stage. It was a very expensive system and the owner knew good sounding music.

    Audiophile's "One Man Campaign" for Horn Speakers

    “I'm definitely not going to purchase a PS audio product after viewing this video.” He bores me too. So many of the so called audio experts say many words that mean little to make their long boring videos mostly stating basic obvious audio facts and buzz words and some have their own agendas. They do have very nice high end expensive audio components, but mostly in bad set up audio rooms and with sometimes not so good of sounding music for their demonstrations. I wish I owned their audio components, but a lot of their advice is not actually educational or factual. I have much more respect for forum members here and other audio forums and learn more from them!

    I find him boring too. There are other so called audio experts I can’t watch either, because I find them boring too. It takes them so long to say little.

    Bob Crites "Prime "

    He’s a good man and businessman.
  9. I’ve listened to, owned and own several speakers. I feel my Chorus II are great as is and so are a lot of speakers.
  10. The Chorus II is good enough for me.

    Any opinions on their crossovers?
  12. I own and enjoy SS and tube audio, but he is biased, because he sells tube audio. I think his comment of SS being “over etched” odd. I’m no expert, but some things these so called experts say has me laughing like he says, “ You can’t take something that’s over etched and compare it to something that’s correct and say one is better than the other...” In his opinion one is incorrect being SS is over etched and one is correct being tubes, although he says it in his vague terms without just saying tubes are better. Maybe he wants to say it vaguely so not to upset SS people. I also disagree with his belief that every system could benefit from a sub-woofer. I own a pair of Wharfedale Emerald EM 99 MK IV speakers and they do not need a sub-woofer and I’ve heard other speakers that do not.

    Enlarge his photo to see how he has his equalizer adjusted. The highs are way up.
