    Unless one removes the internal electronics of speakers, is biamping (or triamping) even worth it?

    You still need passive crossover components, even if you bi amp or tri amp. Otherwise, you are just running each component flat out. You still need something to roll off the tweeter, woofer etc. Your tweeter definitely does not want to see a 100hz signal. All you achieve by bi amping is...

    Unless one removes the internal electronics of speakers, is biamping (or triamping) even worth it?

    I'm totally a believer that DSP is the future. Passive crossover components will be as passe as points and condensers in cars. Passive crossover components likely do more to harm the sound of our music then any other components in the system. The fact the the Kites are self powered is a bit of...

    Unless one removes the internal electronics of speakers, is biamping (or triamping) even worth it?

    Basically, every crossover component ruins the signal. The best speaker is one with no crossover. However, most drivers have huge problems above or below the sweet spot of their range, so just running without a crossover doesn't help either. Which is why DSP as a crossover is the future of...

    As an aside, I'm listening to Rumors by Fleetwood Mac. The speed of the Kites on Never Go Back Again is just astonishing.

    I think this is now the standard Schiit remote.

    I was actually thinking of gloss black. Doing the Kingfisher in black would really make the Rosewood of the Kites pop. Or we could just do grey carpet. :)

    A couple of things happening here. 1) The Kites do not have a volume control built into them. At least not running them the way we are. For running the Bluesound, I can use the internal software volume control. To run my turntable, I need a preamp with a volume control. 2) Yes, you can tweak...

    Do I even want to know how much all that veneer will cost? :)

    Or I may go in a totally different direction. It should answer the question of what kind of preamp will I want. I doubt the passive will work, but I'll have two SS options and a tube to compare. Plus the advantages of balanced cables. Lots to learn!

    That could happen easily around these parts. :) Just got the confirmation that the Freya now includes the upgraded remote . This one:

    Bastard! I did complain vociferously. To no avail, I'm sure.

    I believe that is the standard remote now.

    Boooooooo. They are backordered on the Freya's. They are building now, but it might be a couple of weeks before mine is done.

    You know, it really says something fantastic about what @Pat McGinty has built. Those monoblocks were amongst the best sounding amps I'd heard anywhere close to their price, and Pat has rendered them obsolete.
