Question about Shunyata Power Conditioners
Best deal on the internet right here for a Denali for $4200. Ironically it’s sitting on a Bryston 3B cubed in picture. https://theaudiosolutions.com/products/shunyata-research-denali-6000-v2-power-conditioner?srsltid=AR57-fDbjQr1eFxz7NKWx1pWFqIar...

Question about Shunyata Power Conditioners
I own the Everest and it’s great. I have incredible power cables too. But honestly the significance in cable sound is much much more heard with speaker cables, then in interconnects. If you have your dream speaker cables and interconnects then I’d... 
$50k - $80k Budget…Opinions please.
For $80k I’d do Magnepan 3.7i with 1k GR-Research crossover upgrade. Bryston 28b cubed monoblocks with Audio Magic Masterpiece fuses. Chord DAVE DAC with silver lvl 2 Farad power upgrade, and Chord Mscaler with dual Shunyata Omega 75 ohm BNC cable... 
user poll on seperates vs integrated
At that price (10,000) I’d recommend integrated, but separates and monoblocks are far superior. But not possible unless you go 5 times over that budget, you’ll get incredible sound out of a top 10k integrated.  
Is there a ceiling limit on what you are willing to pay for an audio component?
My conscience wouldn’t let me go over 3 million USD. No matter how good it is, that’s my cap.  
New Synergistic Master Fuse
After 9 hours of listening to the Master Fuse it can only be described as a transportation into another and much higher dimension of sound. I couldn’t even exaggerate what I’ve experienced tonight. Instrument separation is so separated it’s like i... 
New Synergistic Master Fuse
Got my Master Fuse today. Installed in my new Bryston 14B3 cubed. I am not exaggerating the music is four feet off my Magnepan 1.7i panels in the most holographic experience of sound I’ve ever experienced. There was literally zero of that before i... 
Is it possible for a high end manufacturer to overprice their goods?
It's like asking is there any greed in man. Answer yes!   I have the 22K Aurender W22SE, I can imagine the markup is less than jewelry on high end audio, but I expect Aurender took 10K profit from the 22k. Worth it? Absolutely yes! Greedy? a lit... 
Warmer class D amps for magnepan?
I've used several amps on my Magnepan 1.7i's. I had the Bryston 4BST in stereo putting out 500 watts into 4 ohms on them and it wasn't enough power. I bought the Legacy Audio i-V2 Class D 1000 watt stereo amp and it's much better, more detailed, m... 
Magnepan Upgrades, Silver and New Crossovers!
@audioman58 Yes, I gutted all the old wire, looked like aluminum wire... I’ve got all 12 gauge .9999 silver wiring now to WBT-0710-Ag-B Nextgen Signature Binding Posts.  
Questions about Resolving Systems
A system that can reproduce the finest detail within the separated instruments and vocals and place them in a wide soundstage with pinpoint accuracy.  
Thinking of Magnepan ... finally!
I've owned the Magnepan 1.7i's for a year. I highly recommend them. Upgrading the fuses and tweeter attenuator to .999 silver parts had a dramatic improvement on sound quality. Tearing the entire crossover and magnetic steel binding post out and p... 
Power Cable for CDP
All silver cables are fascinating. Levricables grand power cord cheap cheap and pure 5N silver 28 wire, just can’t beat it.  
Proof of improvements in audio system sound quality....
First off Mahgister‘s rock bags zip tied to the outdoor power line is genius.
