i'm sick of companies making outlandish claims about their equipment, plus i'm bored. post anything that u think is just outrageous such as the following:

WAVAC tube monoblocks.

Do a search on Stereophile's review site for them. $350,000 a pair. For that price, the designer will come out to your site, install them for you, and fix them on the spot if there's ever a problem :)

Nordost Valhalla interconnects.

If you really want to spend 5 grand for a few meters of wire...

Will it improve the soundstage of the lamp? :)

It'll give the lamp a more pleasing glow...giving the light a more refined and delicate texture...

I could write reviews for TAS and Stereophool :laugh:

yea, so what about the pog series?

:confused:

I don't get it.

He's talking about the CAD-1610, the 55wpc monoblocks, right? Where does "Pog" come into this...

Spending lots of money is the best way to take advantage of phsycoacoustics, "I spent 5 grand on wire so it MUST sound better, right?"

there should be a way to get rid of a post's actual count in the thread, so it doesn't count toward the user's post count, without removing it from the thread

it's rediculous how happy i am to see that the **** has been deleted, but i'm still curious as to what they wrote that was unrelated...

I agree that alot of that ultra high end and ultra high expensive stuff is pretty ridiculous but if they make it then there is obviously people out there that have the money and justify paying that much for that stuff. I've always been a fan of the cool stuff such as Lexicon, Meridian, Classe, Mark Levinson, McIntosh, Proceed and Sunfire. I will most likely never own any of this stuff but I have to admit if I did have the money I would love to see how the other half lives. I can't deny how nice this stuff sounds after listening to demos at high end shops. Is the price for me?? Of course NOT. Is the sound for me?? FVCK yes.

JimJ
09-17-2005, 05:51 AM
There's nothing McIntosh can do that can't be done on a DIY scale...the price doesn't magically do anything :D

Give me a 245 triode amp and a pair of Kleinhorns and I'm set for life...

Continuous RMS watts/channel into 8 ohms 800 watts
Continuous RMS watts/channel into 4 ohms 1600 watts
Continuous RMS watts/channel into 2 ohms 3200 watts

:rolleyes: if you have speakers that need 400 watts, time to go back to the design board

Some folks like me prefer high impact sound from the loudspeaker, akin
to beating on a snare drum with a stick. That crack you hear is alot of energy
and trying to get a driver to reproduce this ain't easy. First, that transient
would clip the amp easy and squash the peak.

What do you do? You can use higher sensitivity drivers in the design. You
can use an amplifier with higher rail voltage. You can bridge an amplifier
to get 2x more clipping headroom.

For non bridged amps, if you want a higher rail amplifier you have to buy an
amplifier with high wattage ratings because that is how you get high rails.

I drive the NSB array with a 1200w/ch amp, not because the NSB's draw
1200w, rather the amp has 110v rails so clipping occurs at 110v. If I bridge
the pro amp and drive the array with 2400w, the NSB's aren't drawing 2400w,
but I now have 220v clipping headroom for transients. To make the sound
more uber and offer high impact, you wire the array for low impedance to
boost sensitivity. So, 220v headroom on 16 NSB's rated for 104dB sensivitity
can crack your head open with clean sound that resembles the real musical
instrument when struck hard... You should hear the jazz music that I play on
this array, the dynamic impact is insane, nothing in the store can beat it unless
it's a high sensivitity array and some of them are not wired for high sensitivity.
This is the real fun in audio, when you can crack skulls with transients.:laugh:

how many people are running line arrays like u lol? and the point was look at the price of the amp...800w or not, there can be NO need for an amp to be that expensive

Well apparently someone thinks so. They wouldn't build those if there weren't people out there that justify dropping that much coin on it. I know I never would but there are some insanely rich people in this country that can afford **** like that. Especially with the tax cuts the rich have been given by our "crooked" president.:rolleyes:

I think I may be the only one with NSB/PT2 ported arrays. If you build one,
then it's two people that have them .... so you can destroy the world :crazy:

Here's a thread on a DIY monster amp being created by Nelson Pass, Zero Cool
and Swarmy Dog. He wants to now make four monoblocks {3 level tower},
each monoblock has dual 2KVA transformers, so 16KVA total for four amps.

http://www.caraudioforum.com/vbb3/showthread.php?t=208623

1KVA ~= 1000 watts. :clap: :peace: :awesome:

You have a chip amp pcb in that kit or just loose parts? Do you have docs to

Start with the power supply first, then solve chipamp issues second.

it's amazing that they always just give the "max" power and not the rms. max could be like 1 nanosecond of that power and they won't blow for all we know. actually, my pyramid 8" setup (which actually hit pretty good....) was rated at 200 rms and 500 max. i fed it 300 watts for ~6 months until 2wks ago when i took out the amp and killed the box. sub is still perfect...
