I think someone raised this recently, but what is up with the limited extension on these high-end JBLs? Is 48hz really where they drop off? Apr 29, 2022

        Hmm, interesting. And I guess maybe the big Altec VOTT speakers don't really do sub-bass either. Anyway, I can see horns like these as a destination, and I have the subs.... And maybe they need subs. Just surprising to see a modern, $$$ speaker roll off that high.

        My system has dual 15" subs and 14" woofers in the mains and it rolls hard below 60hz. Sounds good anyway. Frankly I actually prefer the sub bass presentation out of a good pair of headphones, but speaker mid- and upper- bass is quite satisfying

        Almost anything with a port will have that low end roll off, especially with such a small volume cabinet.

      Miles, Live Evil. How has this one escaped me so long? I like this more than Bitches. Except for the dumb poems, this is hitting so hard.

        "What's Best = cigar bar" - either I've been to "crappy" cigar places or they're not as posh as you think.

        Hey, yeah, I've never actually been to a cigar bar. I guess I just associate them with places guys go to brag about expensive toys, but maybe not.

        There are some good resources and friendly types on What's Best Forum. And several to many high-end turntables and horn systems to drool over. There also seems to be some serious $$$ paraded around, so not everything so relevant over there, to me anyway.

      DL103 and DL103R, the HD650 and HD600 of cartridges?

        Just been messing around with a DL103R and alternately quite liking it and feeling, like the Senn, that it can be a bit wooly on the low end. Not the last word in detail, at all, but, also like the Senn, it gets the tonality basically right.

        I'd like to hear the Zu DL103R or even what Anamighty Sound does with the cart. Or perhaps a more advanced tip than the conical from one of the re-tippers out there.

        I'd love be able to borrow a Zu before committing. Very interested to hear since, I agree, DL103R gets tonality and timbre so right. Would be great to get some incisiveness added to the mix.

      Anyone have any suggestions for a readily available oscilloscope? Something on Amazon or easy to get on the web. Say, $350 or below.

        Its help documentation is really good. Spend some time reading before you do anything.

      Gungnir Multibit-->BHA-1-->HD800 sounding excellent. When the HD800 are good, I like them as much as anything else I've heard.

        Also, Rickie Lee Jones, s/t, is one of the few audiophile-approved albums I really like. It gets a touch cheesy in places, and then a song takes another turn and just slays. And, yes, the sonics are A+.
