Turntable cost:benefit
Almost six years ago I wrote an essay about analog where I asked the same question: what is my cost to benefit with all the different superb formats out there?https://themightythunderer.wordpress.com/2014/02/24/quo-vadis-analog/Since then, I’ve up... 
Qobuz Special Offer
Signed up tonight. Enjoying it. 
Magnepan's new LRS?
Do y'all think the Prima Luna Prologue integrated will drive these well? 
Song (or music) you want played at your funeral.
The final movement, adagio, to Mahler’s Ninth Symphony. Arguably, the greatest symphonic movement ever written.  
CD ripper
BUY Bryston!!!!!
Add me to this list of satisfied Bryston owners. I had an almost twenty year old 3B they repaired as good as new. Sold it and the new owner transferred a little over three years left on the 20-year warranty. If I weren't so in love with tubes, I'd... 
Beware of SACD Transports -- they probably will not work with your favorite DAC
I have a DirectStream DAC and Player. I'm very happy withe the results I get. SACDs sound great decoded by the DS DAC, as do Redbook CDs. 
For those of us over 60..
Mahler's Ninth Symphony... 
What were your humble beginnings on the path to high end audio?
Scott R74S Receiver, Kenwood turntable (later upgraded to a Garrard Zero-100), and Altec 893C speakers. Served me very well for years... 
OPPO or Something Else?

OPPO or Something Else?
Is this a software based solution or an actual box that goes between the OPPO and the coax? 
First Tube Amp
The first time I heard tubes was with a pair of McIntosh MC30s a buddy of mine lent me. They belonged to his deceased dad and he had no way to use them then. I had had a Bryston 3B and a Citation 12 in my system. No slouches, they, but I was hooke... 
Why do my new Transparent cables make my system sound muffled?
I've had Monster, PS Audio, Nordost, Mapleshade and now, finally, all Transparent cabling in my system (interconnects, digital coax, HDMI, and speaker cables). The Transparents win hands down over all of them. Directionality is critical, as is bur... 
South Florida - join in and make a REAL effort!
The Ft. Lauderdale store appears to be open. They answered the phone. The Pinecrest number forwarded over there. Pinecrest is definitely closed. 
South Florida - join in and make a REAL effort!
That's the location I'm talking about. I went on Saturday. Their space in the building has been emptied of all gear and a WRIT OF POSSESSION and SHERIFF'S EVICTION notices have been posted on the inside of the door. I have a photo I can send you p...
