@rtaylor76 My kids are getting me the Audioengine A2+ for Father's Day. I hooked them up tonight. They sound good so far. May 25, 2018 at 7:27 AM

        I get surprising bass response from my old A2's that I have hooked up to my bedroom TV. They are reinforced by a wall/corner. World's better than the TV speakers or any soundbar I have tried. Won't go deep or loud without distortion, but still surprising and pleasant for such small things.

      Anyone familiar with JBL Control 2P as monitors for my desktop computer? The LSR series are a bit out of budget ATM.

        I owned the original Control Ones, then again about 6 months ago (for three days), pretty poor speaker in my opinion. My fostex powered 4 inchers are much better on my desktop.

      I’ve come to the conclusion that the “JBL CM202/220” monitors I’ve been looking at are a completely made up fake product

        Yes, you can certainly buy them. They do exist. I just don’t believe that they’re actually made by JBL.

        I was scratching and telling him he was a good boy and he was wagging and jumping and licking. Made my day. He was so excited. I wonder if I’m the first foreigner he’d seen.

      I like a lot of free jazz but sometimes there is a fine line between genius and sounding like a 7th grade marching band warming up.

        20% storewide is about as good as it gets. IME. Some coupons are stackable with some sales. No matter what they still seem high. Pono rarely had coupons/sales and still tended to be cheaper. I usually concentrate on exclusive masterings for hi-res downloads.

        Ended up getting Kind of Blue 2013 master, King Crimson Live in Chicago, Kronos Quartet & Laurie Anderson Landfall (really good) and Amber Rubarth Scribbled Folk Symphones (a Chesky binaural). GC + 20% off equaled $39 off total price.
