Keb Mo
I saw him a few years ago at a small venue in Dallas. Just him and a few other musicians on stage. It was the most delightful concert I’ve ever experienced. It was very relaxed, not loud and almost felt like an impromptu performance. Many years ag... 
Cost Incurred to Achieve a Vinyl LP Replay
@asvjerry  “but esoterica wanders into the Broad Fields of Unmown Growth, the Tall Corn which some disappear into, recognized only by the bleating of Profound Pleasures unknown to many...” 🤣 Well said, sir!  *clink*   
Musical subwoofer under $2000
Take a look at HSU Research ULS-15 MK2 Dual Drive. I’ve had HSU subs in one iteration or another for 25 yrs and have never felt like I needed “better”. However, if you need variable phase control look elsewhere.  
DACed and Confused here...
A used Schiit Yggdrasil could be a good option if you don’t need DSD. I’ve occasionally seen them on The Music Room in that price range. Smooth as butta’ in my system.  
Any other Pipe And Slippers Audiophiles out there?
I just wish I could still cross my legs like that.  
WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HATE FOR THE HIGH END GEAR ON AUDIO GEAR?
riccitone, well said!  
WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HATE FOR THE HIGH END GEAR ON AUDIO GEAR?
I think I’m a bit confused. Who and where are these people that are “dissing” high end audio? I guess I don’t spend enough time here (and other forums) to see it . Are we talking about the internet at large?    But I tell ya, you don’t have to lo... 
magnepan
Did Magnepan start selling direct to consumer? Their website sort of gives the impression that speakers can be Pre-ordered. Shows some as “sold out”.  
I saw the back of an integrated and it depressed me.
@asvjerry, now every time I see a cloud I’ll wonder if you are in there :)  
To condition or not ?
“reported many times to limit amp performance“ How can it limit amp performance? Not being argumentative, just curious to learn.  
The greatest Pop song yet written and recorded.
@kerrybh, I wholeheartedly agree. This is an amazing rendition of “Crying”. “You’ve lost that loving feeling” by the highly underrated Righteous Brothers. I can appreciate the musical genius of “God only knows” but I was never able to warm up to... 
WiFi Streaming Versus An Ethernet Cable Connection
I’ve only ever streamed via Ethernet. After reading this thread, I became curious about how it would sound via Wi-Fi so I disconnected Ethernet. Well crap! Now my tiny mind thinks listening via Wi-Fi is slightly more holographic. Live and learn. C... 
Gapless playback of FLAC files.
Where does the blue-ray player get the flac files from? Where are they stored?   
Streamer Selection - Thoughts Requested Please!
Question on the connectivity out from the streamer to the Yggy DAC as noted by @mrmojo. As I understand it, the Aurender only provides USB out. Should I factor in SPDIF out? - I see that the Lumin Pulse offers SPDIF output in addition to USB. Will... 
What would your "perfect speaker" sound like.
Perfect speaker would be no speaker. Music delivered by Star Trek like transporter. @asvjerry, it’s not just you.
