Looking for decent DAC with volume control
Thanks for the recommendations. My budget would be 3 to 4k. I think used for now unless something happens that allow my finances to stretch a bit further. I'm looking at Feb or March to make this purchase. Iniatially i was looking for an R2R but i... 
dacs that I have had in my system - a listing
Can you give us some insight into the $3k and $4k field? I know this is subjective so two or three options under each will do. Thank you very much for your time.  
dacs that I have had in my system - a listing
Impressive list for sure. Not only that but you sound very knowledgeable of each one you describe in the post. Where does the Gustard R26 falls in the below $2,000 range? What would be your top choice in that segment? Thank you.      
Marantz cd players
I own the CD60 and i'm very happy with it. No plans to upgrade.   
After years of separates, I'm going integrated. Anyone else do the same?
Add me to the list. I switched to a Symphonic Line La Musica integrated with mm/mc phono. I also own a KT88 tube integrated but the SL is special.   
Best Integrated Amp You Ever Heard?
Three yrs ago i came across a Symphonic Line La Musica and i'm glad i bought it. This is an end game type of amplifier. Huge soundstage, speed, transparency and pinpoint imaging. Not to mention a reference mm/mc phono stage. The more i listen to i... 
Efficient speaker: Zu, Tekton, Volti, Klipsch, Fleetwood?
Check the Aric Audio Dynalto.  
What Integrated Amp do You use
Symphonic Line La Musica. The fact that i still have this amp a year and a half after purchase speaks volumes about its performance. After 35 years of wheeling and dealing this may be it. 
Would you sell to someone with no feedback?
I have. On top of things he was from Ukraine but worked on a merchant marine ship and was offshore in Houston. I asked him all kinds of questions and he replied asking me for my ph #. In a few mins i was doing facetime with him. He appeared legit ... 
What frustrates you the most about seller’s for sale ads?
How about " Rare ". That always make me laugh specially when there are two or  three  on ebay and other audio sites.

So... What did you end up doing?  
ditch the Krell FPB 400cx for my 'new' Sophia 2's?
I just listened to a pair of Revel F208 driven by Magnus 400 amp today and I was very impressed with the Magnus. Its a reference level power amplifier.  
phono Symphonic Line integrated amp
Mordante,I know it's been ten years since your initial post and that you probably don't own the La Musica integrated anymore but I thought it wouldn't hurt responding. I bought a La Musica integrated a little over a mth ago here in Orlando. The in... 
Need insight on these amps
This is to let you guys know that after three weeks of looking around i finally found what I consider to be a world class amplifier for my Solos. The best part of it was that it was only 12 miles away from my house and I got a chance to audition i... 
Need insight on these amps
The thought about selling the speakers crossed my mind but that's gonna open a new can of worms for me. To be honest I hate to ship speakers.  I'm getting some new perspective in my search. Also i have driven the Solos with tubes amps to good resu...
