Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
@fastfreight haha...about every two years I sell off my second system, upgrade my main system further and then...begin building a second system all over again. Self loathing is commonplace in my house while doing so. Hope you are well!  
Roon Endpoint Streamers - Direct Comparisons between Current Offerings?
@fastfreight @mitch2  The MU1 sounds amazing with my MM Tambaqui.  But it is not as yet functional as a Roon endpoint ONLY.  Per my conversations with Grimm, it soon will be.  This is really only an issue if you have two systems, where one runs ... 
Replacement for Shindo
I believe he is Vu Jade Audio     
Replacement for Shindo
@alfa100    Have you heard Shindo and want it or have you read about it and therefore you think you want it? It will help us make recommendations.   From what I’ve heard, there is a pause in the manufacturing. The Shindo’s have been going non-... 
OCD mickey website and negativity.
@emergingsoul  That’s nice to hear about explaining what’s inside the mystery box. Maybe mikey can do a video on this. I wish more videos about what goes on inside the mystery boxes would be done. Also would be nice to hear explanations about cr... 
Borresen Loudspeakers
@bmwalpina  What if the margin was 70%? 60%? 50%? Since you dont know its as likely as your 80% guess. Sales and marketing is an important role, however, there are alot more good salesmen than good speaker designers. You make it sound easy and re... 
Borresen Loudspeakers
@bmwalpina    There are only a few things Id like to point out….you havent got any idea what the speakers sound like nor do you have any idea what the speakers cost to produce nor their margins. Yet, you opine that they are “legal robbery” with ... 
DCS Bartok v Meitner MA3 v Esoteric N05XD
@acurus I agree 100% with @rossb . I had a Bartok in my system a while back and I found it almost unlistenable, especially in the context of your query. I owned multiple Meitners in multiple systems and loved it. The sound, the functionality, it w... 
Borresen Loudspeakers
@bmwalpina you seem to be missing the subtle nuances. Intelligent people of means simply don’t buy what doesn’t make sense from their particular value judgement. I’m not saying you should or shouldn’t buy anything, no one is. I AM EMPHATICALLY say... 
Borresen Loudspeakers
@bmwalpina   I don’t know how you feel, but if you know that someone about to sell you something with 80% mark up... do you still feel good buying it? If I like something and I feel it is worth it to me then I dont particularly care what som... 
Borresen Loudspeakers
@bmwalpina  You must not be their target market for the $500k speaker. Im not either. Doesnt mean they arent worth it to someone who is.   @roxy54 I think deep must be on tilt.    
Borresen Loudspeakers
@deep_333 My neighbor has a cat, which is equally as relevant as the speakers you've owned. I'm not a Borresen fan or foe, never heard them or seen them. The gentleman who started this thread and many others like what they heard...   I am, howev... 
Raven Osprey 3.1 vs Leben cs600
The Leben is built to an heirloom quality standard as you know. The transformers, the parts quality, the sound, the versatility with power tubes, etc. Its hard to beat. Ive owned it several times and I always miss it if I am without one.    You ... 
Signal tube versus power tube, sound impact?
Some tough supply chain decisions were made during the pandemic. NOS tubes are going to get harder to source every year. Hopefully CJ has a plan for that inevitability.  
Signal tube versus power tube, sound impact?
Manufacturers must spec a tube that is currently manufactured and readily available in bulk. In addition, with the uncertainty surrounding Russia and China trade channels, a European built tube like the JJ is both politically expedient and more re...
