Aurenda and Tidal and Qobuz connect
We are Aurender dealers. Agreed with @tvad on their support. It is excellent. If it helps here is a link to the information they will need when you contact them. They may remote in and configure a fix for you, and get you up and running in no time... 
For classical music lovers best amp for large orchestral forces?
We are late to the party on this post but I wanted to share this because Audionet is not a household name.    We picked up the Audionet line last summer and it has done nothing but impress the heck up of me. This is just my opinion, but I’m putti... 
Shopping for a DAC at AXPONA
@jmeyers  This is James from Choice Audio, I thought I would add a little more. CONGRATS on your RETIREMENT! I will actually be at Axpona 2024. We will have a Mola Mola Tambaqui DAC in room 1427 (Vinnie Rossi and YG) and a Merason DAC1 mk2 in r... 
Shopping for a DAC at AXPONA
We sell the MSB, as well as the Mola Tambaqui, the Meitner as mentioned, and a few others. Feel free to reach out for opinions, but I think you are spot on, nothing like hearing it, and best on your own system & home. Axpona will be a lot of f... 
Anyone upgrade to the Merason Dac1 mkii?
The Aqua La Scala is a wonderful DAC.  Both the DAC1 and LaScala check that musical foot tapping, get lost in the music box. If you want my opinion of the differences, feel free to email me or PM me.  james@choiceaudio.com They are both great, a ... 
The time has come and I request advice...
We sell Aurender and have the N150 on demo currently. Happy to answer any questions.    I can tell you it’s built like a tank, sounds great and I really like the conductor app for navigating music (Tidal & Qobuz). Typically I use it in critic... 
Anyone upgrade to the Merason Dac1 mkii?

DAC Help : Please Weight In - Down to 5
We sell the Mola Mola and the Aqua lines. Amazing DAC's but very different designs. If you are also looking at a streamer, the Mola comes with one, the others you would need to add one.  I think some of the options depend on the accompanying comp... 
Anyone upgrade to the Merason Dac1 mkii?
We carry the Merason DAC's - the difference between the Mk1. and Mk.2 are pretty big - as soon as I put the Merason Mk.II in the system it was a big change. Dynamics and sound stage were noticeable/remarkable. Even my wife said, what did you chang... 
DAC Suggestions
Merason Reuss DAC just came in. Its awesome - great soundstage and very musical. It is close to the DAC1  
Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
We carry all (3) brands and happy to answer any questions on how these sound and operate. The Antipodes is a special unit! I think it depends on preferences using Roon vs. Conductor app as well.     
Looking for recommendations for a 'warm' sounding DAC
It's just a tiny bit above your price point, but the DACs made by Aqua are very, very musical.  Not quite on the warm side, but detailed. Huge open room filling soundstage with out the digital harness that I think you are trying to get away from b... 
[help] I'm too Boomer to stream. :-(
I have been trying to make streaming work for years. Tried macs and PCs, JRiver, Sonos, Blusound, Apps on HT Receivers and a few of the high end brand streamers. Nothing was really worth sticking with. Either the sound quality sucked or besides So... 
How about a list of speakers that are time and phase coherent? Thiels and what else?
Intuitive Design Summit Loudspeakers are time and phase coherent and do things that very few speakers I have heard are able to do.  Still one of my all time favorite speakers.  I wish more manufacturers paid attention to this.Here's a nice article...
