Give Up on Bacch?
I went in the room when Edgar was demonstrating. I never  did the demo as there were a few waiting. Little different with the camera following your head movements.  People  that have it love it so maybe ask for more time if you have it already. Th... 
Aurender is finally Roon Ready?!
Heard the N30 SA at Axpona w/ Doshi electronics and Joseph Audio new Flagship speakers. Sounded fantastic.   
15k for streamer and dac....how much on each?
I believe the Lumin feeds DSD to the DAC 200. I just got the T+A Dac 200 also. Sounds great on red book. Feeding it DSD files off the Melco Na H60 Ex is a step up. The Melco doesn’t convert native red book to DSD so would love to hear the Lumin ta... 
15k for streamer and dac....how much on each?
OP not sure what the rest of your system is but for 17,500 retail the Grimm MU2 is gaining a lot of traction. Usually in a streamer/dac combo the streaming portion is the weak link. Grimm is known for their streamer (Mu1) and have added a world cl... 
Help with XLR ICs.
Iconoclast UPOCC Gen 2. They are the high end division of Belden .They will send you the cables to try . If you do not like them they will pay for return shipping also. You have zero dollars out of your pocket to try. Fantastic cable and company t... 
Shopping for a DAC at AXPONA
Congrats on your retirement. You certainly deserve to treat yourself. Maybe look at the Grimm MU 2.  Getting a lot of chatter as the best sounding Streamer/server/dac/pre in the 15-25 k range. Lists at 17500. Going to see a lot of them at Axpona s... 
Coda Csib V1 Integrated amp
My CSIB does a nice job with the Persona 5f's. I just moved to a T + A Dac 200 and the Coda shines even brighter.  V1 also and 150 watts fill my 27x17x10 room with plenty to spare. Unless you are filling a ballroom or really, really tough speakers... 
Quite a few Bricasti M21 DACs for sale cheap
The Grimm Mu2 is getting a lot of chatter. You may see some Bricasti owners going that way.   
Best monoblock amps for $2000 used
Yepper on Odyssey. I sold my top of the line Kismet monos a year ago and still kicking myself in the ass. Try to score a pair in the Stratos cases. You can do more upgrades than in the Khartago cases. As good as they are re-sale is very affordable... 
Suggested Power Cable for Streamer
Glad to hear you are ditching the classic cable that  comes with the Puritan. It is average at the very best . You are going to get a serious upgrade with any kind of good quality 20amp PC. The Ultimate PC is just as good as the classic is bad.   
Borresen Loudspeakers
@cheche9  sweet system. Tube and solid state. Congrats again. It takes a long time to put together a system that synergizes no matter how good the equipment is.  Now to find some new music to listen to!!  
Puron Plug-In AC Power Conditioner; Impressions 😁
Just ordered 2 Purons to go along with the HF 0.5 that I already have. Did not notice a huge uptick with the 0.5 but I have all new dedicated circuits with dual ground rod etc. Wasnt hurting so I just kept them anyways. Hoping for a little more fr... 
Help me pick some new or used speaker cables
Townshend Fractal F1. They will work with you on price. Fantastic cable and a big step up from the Cardas and and incremental improvement from the Silversmith. The Fideliums are definitely the best bang for the buck in speaker cables   
AGD Tempo in the house
Please let me clear this up.  I bought 2 Tempo’s from Mike with a 30 day trial in Nov of 2022. I ran them bridged   They sounded good but did not have the grunt and stage as Odyssey Kismet reference monos so I sent them back to Mike within two wee...

Congrats, what’s the rest of your setup? Room?
