Legacy Focus XD - will I ever upgrade?
Any feedback about the current vs previous AMT setup? Thanks  
Legacy Focus XD - will I ever upgrade?
Bringing this back up as I wonder if @douglas_schroeder or others have any insight regarding the AMT tweeter differences in the Focus SE V1 vs the current AMT setup? The Focus HD brought across the board differences in drivers, compared to earlier... 
PS audio new 25K dac and the psychological effect of owning a company's best.
I’m all for the free market and "whatever the market will bear" for pricing. People can charge and pay what they want. I suspect part of the disappointment expressed here is because we know that kind of pricing is hyper-inflated and is driven by m... 
PS audio new 25K dac and the psychological effect of owning a company's best.
Well, based on what Paul shared below very recently, the pricing of this unit is quite straightforward and just a routine multiple of production costs...https://www.psaudio.com/pauls-posts/pricing-models/I’m "not buying it". 
Magnepan, Best midrange?
@twodolphins There are no perfect speakers, but Sound Lab speakers are 99,97 perfect... The best Magnepan will give you only 80% experience of properly set big stats. That's a personal opinion. If you have a room, go for Sound Lab. Then you should... 
Magnepan, Best midrange?
@russ69 If a few feet is 5 or 6 feet, you got it right, otherwise there is more to get from your Magnepans.. I certainly don’t dispute that. What I’m saying is that folks don’t need to think a dedicated space with them way out into the room is the... 
Magnepan, Best midrange?
csmgolf Magnepans have special needs in respect to room size and positioning within said room. Dipoles are not like conventional speakers. Someone should warn Magnepan about what they may be getting into.I haven’t found that to be the case in term... 
any suggestions on what to replace Bluesound Node 2i with
This iFi Zen Stream unit just came out.  I have one and am happy with it so far.  It works with everything I can throw at it and incorporates their other technology into S/PDIF, USB, and power supply. I have an external USB drive plugged into it a... 
Class D amps that are superior to all or most?
Pricing for this stuff is all over the map. So, what else is new? 10, 20, 30k for "all that and (literally) a box of chips?" "Oh, but you are obviously a neanderthal and not capable of comprehending what goes into development."OK. So a $5k class D... 
High end Class D amps?
Looks this one up... “Lighten up, Francis”. My comment was as much a vague reference to current events as much as anything else. Obviously you like whatever it is you’re listening too and it will be interesting to see what it is. As for the .009%,... 
High end Class D amps?
Well, Schroeder's already said he's at 99%.  Hopefully there aren't any shenanigans in the wee hours of the morning just before the article drops. Then there's the issue of whether someone gets to him. You never know... Nelson Pass could put a cal...

It’s true... you can’t teach an old @dutchydog new tricks.

I haven't offered much of anything to this thread but at least I've taken time to read it.

Apple TV Streaming Sound Quality vs Streamer?
I’m glad I found this thread as well. I’ve been looking at using a Chromecast Audio and / or AppleTV as a streaming device. I saw the iFi Purifier and comments that it really cleans up the optical output. Talked to Rich B at Signature Sound about ...
