I always marvel at the list of equipment that graces so many of 2x6's posts. It's been so long since I've read the words "Ah! Njoe Tjoeb" -- it really took me back to the food old days. )

You brought it up and started it, 2X6.

That entire post was pure arrogance so it is interesting that he's calling out people for their perceived arrogance. He must be one of the very few who has zero additional noise when using external amps. Lucky him.


He has a ton of "noise" or to be more accurate, distortion. Distortion can sound quite nice. All you have to do is listen to my EP600v2 to find out how nice it can sound smile.

I will add myself to the list of people here that have outboard amps with ZERO noise. And for what its worth we all must like distortion since the M80's are criticized for comb filtering due to their design. And for whats its worth there are a few people that come off as pretentious and critical around here and for the most part I just ignore them . I find finger pointing in bad taste, both by 2X6 and Alan, come on grow up guys, most of us here are out of grade school.

I'd say the most practical aspect is the click-in connection. I've had way-too-tight RCA connectors that have been impossible to pull off without doing damage. It's been a while, but it has caused me grief. I don't currently use a pre-pro, but one of these days I hope to revisit that sort of setup, and then I can pull out my XLR interconnects again that have been sitting boxed up. Right now the only XLRs I have are the cables between subs (since I have four).

I use XLR also, these days there are a lot of wires and cables behind a typical HT setup and it seems like a good idea to me to take advantage of the noise rejection XLR provides. Whether it makes a difference I cant say but it certainly does no harm.

XLR cables aren't expensive these days. Unless you choose the Corinthian Leather ones.

I prefer the ones with fine Valencia Vinyl. They lend a crispness to the music.

Some solid state amps sound very good. Some, with similar THD specs sound not so good. I suppose if you pump enough negative feedback into the circuit, you get good specs, but poor sound quality. I've heard tube amps which are very 'plummy,' a characteristic some equate with 'tube sound.' A good tube amp does not sound plummy but does have a distinctively rich, warm, 'musical' sound. (To my ears). The new MacIntosh, Prima Luna, ASL, VAC and many other new tube amps are not plummy.

I list some of my solid state amps to make the point that my opinions cocerning solid state amps are not based on something I read as opposed to my experience.

I have a system in every room (except of course baths). I have one tube amp, and a bunch of solid states. Including my garage, car wash system, I have 5, 2 channel rigs. I like them all. Except for 1 very sweet system with Dahlquist M905s, and one with the magnificent Thiel CS3.6s (Home Theater system), they all use Axiom or Axiom made speakers.

Frame of reference.

Ha! You're finger-pointing at them for finger-pointing. That's Rich! Hey, I know it's corny, but it's a double entendre and a pun at the same time! I had to go for it.

BTW, Richard, you wrote, "Most of us here are out of grade school," not "the REST of us here..." That means you think there are others. Don't make me guess. No, really, don't make me do that.

I'm off to play a round of golf ... really.

As you might expect ... tour blades and persimmon wood woods.
