first US review 432 evo music server
This is a great forum to learn about new gear. In many instances, the dealers get the gear and can share their thoughts and descriptions on its performance before any reviewer gets a hold of it. This is especially true for manufactures that don’t ... 
Lumin U1 Still Relevant??
I'm looking at the U2 mini myself.  
amp for ZU Audio Druid V speakers
If you forgo tubes, like I have, checkout Luxman and Pass Labbs Class A amps. I purchased a Luxman L-595ase (Class A) for my ZU Omen Defs after I sold my BHK Tube Pre and Firstwatt J2 combo. I have not thought about tubes since.

Is an isolation transformer better than a power conditioner?
I have Torus TOT Max in my system. I'm afraid to try plugging my integrated Luxman into the wall directly because it may sound better, thus there will be no surge protection.

Luxman!! You may think resale value means nothing now, however, it will if you decide to move on. My research, due to purchasing an integrated amp, shows pre's or integrated with built-in dacs has much lower resale value (after the model has been ... 
Is $2,844 too much to pay for a fuse?
I’d be curious if one disguised and regular old 10 cent fuse as a $2800 one ( if it were possible to disguise) and conducted a comparison to the same model fuse undisguised, would people ( thinking the disguised fuse was real) still pick the disgu... 
Rose RS250 Streamer/Dac?
Unless one has a long cable run, I am assuming the difference between the RCA outs of the 250 and the XLR outs of the 150 are minimal  
Gryphon Diablo 120, Luxman L-590AXII, Other? For KEF R11
The Luxmans have tone controls, so you can adjust some treble if needed  
Gryphon Diablo 120, Luxman L-590AXII, Other? For KEF R11
I believe Jay's Audio Lab on youtube did a video on having a pair of Gryphon amps repaired or refurbished. There is no authorized Gryphon dealer in the US so Jay had to spend $2,500 (I think) on overseas shipping alone to Gryphon on top of the rep... 
The Luxman L-595A SE integrated is coming.
@webking185 I agree. I have had the L595ase for a couple of weeks and this thing sounds fantastic!!
