If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
Great topic, it definitely needs some thought, something that I refrain from doing whenever possible. To say what is real or not real is the question? Over the years music has changed constantly thanks to different materials, different production ... 
So, a reviewer just said something I need to talk about.
I think reviewers often zero in on individual instruments instead of the entire piece? When an artist(s) puts together I good track the finished product far exceeds the sum of its parts. I have on occasion listened for certain instruments or passa... 
Why even bother?
I have had similar experiences, sellers simply don't want to do anything other than place an ad expecting gear to simply go away by itself? I have had people not wanting to answer questions, insisting on pick up only, refusing to pack stuff, insis... 
Next step into Digital Streaming
Thanks for the suggestions and recommendations, they are all appreciated. I have had my computer set up as a network server for several years already but it is inconvenient as I have to run downstairs and start it up or leave it running all the ti... 
Next step into Digital Streaming
Thanks for the tips. Roon isn't really a viable option for me as I am away for sizable blocks of time so don't want to get involved with subscriptions that will sit unused. I'm currently satisfied with the blue node, I choose it as I was unfamilia... 
Fee for home audition
An hour is a very short period of time to even get an idea of what it can or can't do? I purchased and hooked up a streamer almost a month ago and I'm still finding new features. A fee to audition is ridiculous in my opinion, sounds more like a re... 
How To Keep Cat Off Stereo Equipment?
Cats like to be warm for comfort, up high for safety and occasionally entertained. Your gear checks all the boxes. A couch or chair back in the sun is heavenly to a cat, as is a nicely carpeted box up near the ceiling. Offer a more inviting place ... 
"Audiophile" Power Cables: The Greatest Audio Conspiracy Theory of All Time?
I was not questioning your gear nor am I offering mine up for praise or criticism,  I was simply presenting some observations. I'm amazed that you are able to know the quality of my gear without knowing what it is? I'm also curious as to what you ... 
"Audiophile" Power Cables: The Greatest Audio Conspiracy Theory of All Time?
I was always skeptical about the effect of hi end cables on the sound quality. I do believe very poor, small cables can have a detrimental effect on the output, that is even measurable. However the difference gets to the point of not being measura... 
Anyone else feel like it’s the Wild Wild West?
Good point Ron, I didn't think of it from that point. I was looking from the "junk" perspective. As I can't remove a built in dac the the current flows thru it, if I add on an outboard unit the current flows thru 2 dacs, everything in the signal p... 
Anyone else feel like it’s the Wild Wild West?
I am hardwired in, so much faster and morecrelisblecthan wifi. I also have a dac in my amp thru the optical or digital plugs. Is a standalone sac significantly better than the built in ones?  
Anyone else feel like it’s the Wild Wild West?
Wild west for sure, and so much ambiguity. This is best, no this is better, so confusing. The reality is everything changes constantly. I have streamed for awhile using a roku box and spotify. I have considered upgrading but I would need a dac, a ...
