    64 degrees and the first heavy pollen day.  Guess this will continue for 4-6 weeks. 

    I am the white dot in the center of this. Trees extend like this for miles in every direction .Springtime can be a bit irritating. Wouldn't give it up for anything.

    What,I see from Class D.is they are fine up to rated power That's all you get without nasty sound


    Tube amps can he pushed hard and still sound good



    I am definitely not going down that road. Spent the past 40 years or so screwing with things for a living. These days I buy what does the job I need it to w/o upgrades high maintenance and troubles. Tube amps are not for me. Not sure I'd wanna deal with class A heat. 


    Thanks for all the answers and information. Seems like I get watts for dollars from what I can tell. Don't really seem to need 'em. The Topping measures 27 watts at 8Ω. I do use it like a power amp turned all the way up using a preamp for volume. Something to think about.

  3. I'm currently using a Topping PA3s to drive my Heresy 1 and KG SW sub. I like the stark nature of the pairing. It's clean a bit bright and very detailed. The passive sub I use does a good enough job for me as I'm not a big thumping bass fan. My hearing (trails off after 12kHz) may be why. Most of my listening is streaming via Spotify. All this has me intrigued if a significant improvement can be had by stepping up to a higher end/spec class D power amp. It'd be nice if I could keep it under $1K USD. Listen to just about anything. Rap and country are very rare other than that I'm old and tired of the same old same old. I expanded my listening to keep me from hating the music that drew me in in the first place.


    So would it be money well spent? I forgot to mention I'm a cheap bastid thus will relentlessly hunt down a deal. Quality second hand is no problem to me.

  4. An Angel visited a woman and told her she must give up smoking, drinking and unmarried sex if she wants to get into Heaven. The woman said she would try her best.
    The Angel visited the woman a week later to see how she was getting on.
    "Not bad" said the woman, "I've given up smoking and drinking but when I bent over to look in the freezer, my boyfriend caught sight of my long slender legs in high heels and he pulled up my skirt and made love to me right then and there."
    "They don't like that in Heaven", said the Angel...
    The woman replied: "They're not crazy about it in Costco either!"

  5. I have emphysema and Covid knocked the shit outta me for 3-4 days. Then real recovery took months. I was just fatigued all the time. That was January '21. A few months later it got bad again for 2 days but tested negative for flu and Covid. Doctor had no clue.

  6. I don't have loads of experience but I know what I like. My Heresy 1. It's taken some time to get them where I really enjoy them. However I liked them from the beginning. If you listen to music containing big thumping bass you'll need a powered sub. I use a Klipsch KG SW passive sub with mine and it can make things shake when twisting the volume knob...with an astounding 27 WPC.


    All that being said try to listen to them all before making up your mind. I know easier said than done but try.
