The best plug in filter ever!
Mark, You may want to re-read your post. You mentioned he asked to you to sell you one which you stated you did. Then in the review he states he borrowed it from a friend. Not that it really matters where it came from , it just blows up the whol... 
Bricasti V1.11 MDx Upgrade for my Bricasti M21 DAC
Ok, just finished up the firmware upgrade.  you will need a Torx T8 bit/wrench you need to only remove the right hand side of the split lid ( looking at the unit) (M3). I assume very similar on other models.    just make sure you have the proper... 
STREAER / DAC / LINE STAGE - Gold Note vs Hifi Rose
As I mentioned it was just new to the market and the external power supply was not available. I am sure it will be very nice. Not the most in transparency and digging deep but always listenable and smooth.  
STREAER / DAC / LINE STAGE - Gold Note vs Hifi Rose
I had a DS 10 for a trial when it was first released ( without the upgraded PS)  it sounded “ nice”. Reminded me of the Aurender A10 I had at the time. Nothing objectionable but not a lot of bite or slam.  It went back.   
Optical USB drive for ripping
Yea I saw that thread. I was just asking for thoughts on a portable ripper that I could plug into the Melco.     
Optical USB drive for ripping
Thanks for the replies. I have always thought a WAV file sounds better than a Flac file. I know its larger file and Metadata can be an issue, but to me has always sounded just  fuller and just more to the music.. I am have over 8TB of ripped Hi-... 
Bricasti V1.11 MDx Upgrade for my Bricasti M21 DAC
For anyone requesting the upgrade Bricasti will ask you for the current firmware and serial number. The serial number is located on a sticker about 1/4 inch long on the underside of the unit ( at least on my M3 ) so you will have to unhook it and ... 
Bricasti V1.11 MDx Upgrade for my Bricasti M21 DAC
Safe to assume their is no charge?  Is it ok just to leave the SIM chip in? How are you liking the sound? Better or just different? thanks

Thanks for the heads up!!  
"Audiophile" Power Cables: The Greatest Audio Conspiracy Theory of All Time?
Can we all just agree that every cable sounds different? To determine which sounds better is system dependent. Folks that can’t hear differences in cables (especially power) may just not have a system capable of highlighting the changes in sonics.... 
Experience with Townshend Seismic Podiums on Concrete Floor (they're great)
I watched the video on my big system. Really liked what I heard. I am sure part of the reason was the podiums allowed me too. If they do that for an amp I can only imagine what they can do for a speaker.  I checked the exhibitors list at Axpona an... 
Speaker Cable Recommendations - Under 2k
I have had the following. Cerious Matrix, Audience 24e thru SX series, silversmith Fideliums and currently Townshend Fractal F1. Depending on your length they may be able to fit your budget.  The Fideliums are the overall value leader though.   
LTA microZOTL or Backert Labs Rhumba Extreme 1.3?
Tons of gain with the MicoZOTL even on low mode. Could never  get past 10:30 with any amps I had. Sounded real good but real tough to just get the right volume.  Lot of fun tweaking though with different tube and fuse combos,umbilical cords etc.  ... 
Cary Audio DMS 700 vs 800 PV
No, just the 600and 700 streamer/dacs.   
Crazy question. Any upgraded 2 prong 18 gauge power cords available ?
Thanks. Never had a pice of audio equipment with a C7  cord. After looking around they are used quite a bit. Thanks on the adapter idea.
