    Hey jrhymeammo...

    ...watsup with me reading that you're considering getting rid of the Maggies? That love affair was short. Methinks your love of alt hip-hop placed against the finicky requirements of the Magnepans has made a match somewhere south of Heaven. Do tell and what's next?

    Well, Sir Bob...

    AS we all know, Listeners dont chose the speakers. Speakers chose the listeners...


    I'm sure my HCA-2 is a great amp, but it just doesnt match well with my 1.6QR.

    Here is what I'm thinking:

    A)
    Keep my 1.6QR w./

    1) A pair of tube monoblocks.
    Such as:

    AES: Six Packs
    Rogue M150
    or a Cary V12i then get another when I can.

    2) A pair of tube/SS hybrid monoblocks such as Monarchy Audio SE160.

    Or

    B) Just say F*'it and get a pair of Silverline Audio Sonata III with a pair of some 300B or El-84 based monoblocks.

    Have I mentioned that I like tubes and analog? I like my music distorted even when I got my system turned down. Impurity is what I crave!!!

    But with all said, I'm sticking to my current setup this year.

    How about you?

    JRA

    Who knows, but I have the feeling 2008 will bring some changes.

    I'll defeintely miss 1.6QR and its huge soundstage. But will see how things go. I'm just kinda kid who gets a new toy and sbsolutely love it while thinking about what's gonna be replaced next. Not a big deal.

    Peace,

    are you offering me a membership to the group you and Sir Bobs is in? But I would be more interested to see what Canary would sound like. I'm sure I'll get a Mac one day, but it's not gonna happen anytime soon. I do wish I was a lukcy 17 year old though.

    Peace Out,

    JRA
