DAC suggestions for a reasonably modest system
Hi  my go to all the time is GUSTART 26  
I want to replace the router/modem Comcast with a high quality for streaming
Have you considered a fiber media converter set up? I added a switch right before my DAC and put the media converter /streamer bundle from  Small Green Computer. It changed my entire listened experience.   I’ve recently upgraded to their top tier... 
Good Speakers for Rock and Roll Under 15K
PBN M1!5…. Can’t beat these for the money and quality. Hand built by Peter himself.   Take a look and reach out if any questions.  I have a few of his speakers.  Also have someone with the bigger 15s which are insane.   https://pbnaudio.com/m1... 
Selling here on Audiogon
I think if something is newer or a “named” brand like Parasiund or Crutchfield type equipment it will always sell fast as people have a direct  comparison to new. Also there are so many cables and brands out there that not many people know them al... 
DAC RECOMMENDATIONS PLEASE
Gustard x26 pro for $1500. Can’t beat it   
Focal Sopra 2’s vs. Legacy Focus SE’s
Hi i ended up going with PBN Audio M1!5 PBN you ask? Well I have to say Peter is the owner and manufacturer with an incredibly talented in many ways.  He should be considered for any audio needs.   I do not get paid to praise PBN but once you ex... 
jitter
I currently have Gustard x26 pro DAC with built in jitter control. Gustard brags about their external clock which is almost the price of the DAC. Is there any need for that and will it enhance the sound quality in any way, even if Im not experienc... 
dac and streamer or seperates
No long winded answer here. Separates 100% im not going to recommend anything nor will I push my system on you like most do. I will say I was where you were a year ago and switched to separates. Huge improvement

What Horn loaded speaker/ speaker system for $10k'ish and under
You have to look at PBN.  California custom speaker builder.  Petter is a genius and has been awarded many times for his work.  The M series is insane.  I just got lucky enough to get a pair. M1!  (2) 12 and a horn.  Amazing   
Loudspeakers with horn or ceramic tweeter?
Ok so I have (like most of us) had many traditional speakers with some tweeters….. My friend has a pair of PBN “M” series. They have a horn and after experiencing the sound dimensions the horn produces I ordered a pair.  I have to say everything i... 
How cam Morrow Audio keep offering 45%-65% discounts for trade-ups?
Marrow speaker cables are an excellent value.   My friend gave me a pair to demo and then I waited for the 65% off sale.  My only gripe would be …. If they are always 50-60% off all the time then just price them that way and have less “sales”.  Th... 
What speaker could safely be ordered without hearing it first?
Anything from Peter at PBN is always a winner. Absolutely amazing sounds all lines
