Finally upgrading my amp
Agreed, your electronics could use a refresh. The Denon looks cool as a vintage piece, but you can get significant better performance. This can be had for $2,500 used as The Music Room deals. 
Modding the PS Audio Directstream DAC MK1 and MK2
Can we purchase APS stickers like the ones shown above? You installed the Vocm and your nickel APS transformers. I do not consider it a DS anymore and would like to have a way of showing. Sent same message on your website.  
Modding the PS Audio Directstream DAC MK1 and MK2
Spent a day revisiting the Snowmass 3.0.5 firmware in my Vocm APS xformer modded MK1. In my system, in my acoustic environment, and my ears I prefer Sunlight. Just my experience, YMMV.

Must have been a difficult decision coming to the conclusion of no longer offering APS transformers for the MKII. A real loss for the MK2 community. Hopefully, when PS Audio gets its production issues sorted, you may consider revisiting the decisi...

Going to give the person some credit. First, they used nickel core APS transformers. Had the right idea on the Vocm mod, just the execution of not using suface mount and creating antennae. The added structural support for the capacitors is creativ...

The graphs are of interest; however, difficult to correlate to what one will hear. I found Mr. Richards numerical assessment of the sound quality improvement (see below) to be spot on. From my experience doing multi thousand dollar upgrades a wort... 
Cannot remove the grills from my Harbeth 30.2XD
  Pardon, this may be a waste of time if you have already tried strong magnets.

Any updates on the 8139 opamp modification WRT availablity and cost? Understood this is a send in your board modification. You have already performed the Vocm cap and nickel xformer mods. So pleased with this modded MK1, but if the 8139 opamps can... 
Acoustically Treating a Bomb Shelter
What jond said. Perfect enfironment for audio heaven based on the volume. So many things going for you. Room EQ Wizard and $100 recommend micorphone and do some sweeps at your listening position. Go to waterfall chart so you can see decay which is... 
Ground Loop?
I have had a similar issue. Finally resolved with isolation transformer. You may consider using a cheezy inexpensive audio xformer ($12 on Amazon) for troubleshooting before purchasing something like the iso-max that uses Jenson transformers.  
What was your first record?
Either Three Dog Night's One or Jimi Hendrix Are You Experienced. I would like to believe the latter.   
Roon is also a music magazine, allowing you to get overviews of musicians, look at album reviews, discography, link to performers in the band and other bands, all the data there while you listen to the album. 
Can I Trust The Music Room's Product Description?
If you are unhappy with the item, get a return authorizaton and send it back. You seem to be asking a lot from TMR as I assume they do not have a research department, but provide the most accurate description they can of the item. I have been quit... 
Made the Move and Not looking back!
Glad its working for you. Based on my personal experience, I am smitten with Roon.   
Modding the PS Audio Directstream DAC MK1 and MK2
I came from the original xformers and had both the Vocm and nickel xformers installed. It is by a wide margin the biggest jump in sound quality of any electronics piece of gear I have purchased in my audio chain.... ever. I do recall reading on th...
