Crackle and hiss on some albums
Start streaming Qobuz, better quality sound than vinyl!  
Suggested Power Cable for Streamer
jhnnrrs & panzerwagn - I replaced the power cable on my NAD integrated with a sub $300.00 power cable and immediately noticed a positive difference in sound, don’t know if it was the larger gauge cable and/or the shielding from interference, b...

kckrs - Great advice…just lie to people.  What a f**king moron you are.  
What happens when the stylus tip wears out on a $12,000 cartridge?
Streaming doesn’t wear out, and with Qobuz it’s higher sound quality, too!  
Recommendations on integrated amps
NAD C700, one box solution- BluOS streamer, Bluetooth, DAC, good quality amp, compact and sturdy, very well reviewed. They are at the top end of your price range and I believe they are Roon Ready.  I’ve had one for a little over a year with zero p...

My speaker upgrade journey - and a few questions
jcs01:  Qobuz has, in the opinion of a great very many, better SQ than any iteration Tidal or Spotify.  I feel the same way in my admittedly MidFi setup.  
Anyone listen to Music on a FM tuner anymore?
Not in a long time, but back in the 70’s and 80’s we were fortunate to have WMMS FM 100.7 in Cleveland, a widely known rock station.  
Why "bookshelf" sspeakers?
Seems the main advantage in a mid to small room is the ability to own multiple monitors that can be rotated and stored much easier than floor standers.  
Denver used market?
Currently in the Audio Blue Book your speakers are valued at $5412 in a private party sale, $4050 on a trade in value per pair.  Hope this helps.  Sorry about your father.  
Recommend a non-polite sounding amp / integrated
corelli: if you don’t like or agree with the parameters someone has stated they want then quit being part of the problem and just let those who want to try and help the person out with their suggestions.  Yes, there are many factors one usually c... 
Purchase on Audiogon arrived not as described
jl35, I agree, I had a pair of Monitor Audio Gold 100 Monitors (one box) and a pair of big Klipsch RP 800F’s (1 box each) both factory shipped in single boxes, but both were extremely well packed with form fitting styrofoam linings and seriously ... 
Purchase on Audiogon arrived not as described
Always, ALWAYS, insist on insured shipping for the full amount if the seller is paying for shipping.  If you are paying, then spring for fully insured shipping yourself.  It is my experience in Lakewood, Ohio that the UPS store here will not accep...
