  1. Cool story re the book! I spoke to him once. I was having a problem with something. So the CEO (Charlie) gets on a Skype call with me! He even offered for me to borrow his tone arm to see if that would fix my issue. (and I live in Australia!). This is WAY above the call of duty.
  2. Charlie was Yoda (RIP) Richard is Obi-Wan....
  3. AQ makes great cable! Always on show with Vandy's at audio shows....
  4. Thanks Jim. I love the gloss black and also the gun metal grey black in the 7's..... You will hear even MORE with the 3000! FYI, On an email Richard said the best amps he has heard with the Sevens, besides his top of the line tube amps are the Ayre MXR-20's....
  5. The Edison receptacle made by AQ was designed by Garth. As far as I know this was not around whilst he was at Furman.
  6. Thanks ct. I had the KX-R and then upgraded to the 20. Hard to believe it could be improved on but it sure was an improvement! I did not have a chance to audition the 7000 in my system and heard that the 7000 MAY buzz a little with tubes in the system. I didn't want to take the risk and had no try before I buy option. I also read the 5000 is very close to the 7000 so just went with that. It's an amazing unit with the new AQ power cords and also speaker cables. I am eagerly awaiting the new interconnects! Why are you surprised Garth never upgraded the receptacle? He did design the Edison wall receptacle - is that what you meant?
  7. Thanks Eric. Your system looks awesome as well! LOVE my Niagara 5000 and also the AQ power cables, receptacle and speaker cables. They all allow you to hear MORE! 🙂
  8. Thanks Sunil. Welcome anytime! 🙂 Thanks Corey. I use the Ayre KXR-20 pre for stereo. The Denon is only used when I watch Blu-Ray movies.
  9. Started off with Thiels, then Vandy 5A's and now the wonderful Sevens. Words can't properly describe the enjoyment I feel whilst listening. Prefer listening to vinyl over digital and most of my listening is analog.
