Crackle and hiss on some albums

Credenza or media stand for hiding away equipment
I’ve never cooked anything in a closed back custom built cabinet. But I don’t buy combo space heaters either I'm afraid that a custom build will be your only option. I've raised 2 generations of toddlers with no damage.

DAC suggestion for PC
