My First Stereo. What Was Yours?
Mid 70's. Pioneer SX636? receiver, Pioneer turntable (model long forgotten) and a pair of cheap 12" 3 way speakers (also long forgotten name). It was cheap stuff but  I was still in college as I had already done my 4 year military commitment and w... 
Amazon Music Question
Schism. Great post! In my own “ crappy” system, I stream with a BlueSound node. 90% of the time I listen through my “low rent” LG V40 phone via Blue tooth to my underwhelming Sennheiser M4 over ear phones when I go on my walks. No room interface i... 
Amazon Music Question
@soix . Real piece of work you are. The be all end all of all things audio. You obviously have super hearing and are able to judge other people’s system by some sort of super power without even hearing them. I only shared what I listen to when I’m... 
Amazon Music Question
https://forum.audiogon.com/posts/2660306   to @soix  So in what way is your comment helpful to the OP? He didn't ask for opinions on the quality of Amazon music. Opinions are like gastrointestinal orifices. I grew up in the 50's and 60's listen...

I've subscribed to Amazon "Ultra HD" since it rolled out. My home listening is with a Dell Precision 3430 desktop. I feed USB out to a JDS Atom DAC and Amp for headphone listening. I have never experienced an issue. I have AT&T 1 gig fiber to ... 
Annoying newbie CD/SACD player question
I have the Sony UBP-X800 M2. According to the owner's manual, it will play all manner of Blu-ray, DVD and SACD. They do provide a disclaimer stating that disc specifications are an evolving format, and some may be unplayable. Unfortunately, I can... 
Yamaha M80 Amp
Update on my M-80. After letting it sit in the basement for several months, I decided to revisit my search for a repair source for my amp. After seeing a name pop up on several forums that I don't even remember now, I hit a gold mine, thirteen min...

Bass lovers - Bela Fleck - Flight of the Cosmic Hippo
So I just ran across this on Amazon. I have the Ultra HD level subscription. Album by Billy Strings called Renewal. The last song is called "Leaders". Plays on Amazon HD at 24/96 FLAC. First time I heard it was walking with my LG V40 playing to m... 
What Holiday Gifts did you ask for or Give to Yourself?
  vinylvalet I purchased a similar one a couple of years ago. Has a handle with 3 different lenses. Also had 1 eyeball repair in September, Long story but they had ordered the wrong lens and she didn't notice until after it was in. Not as bad as... 
System advice
For his musical tastes, I would recommend a Bose table radio. :) Just kidding! Happy holidays.  
What Holiday Gifts did you ask for or Give to Yourself?
Two things, Me, the person who never wins anything, just scored a very nice DALI IO-6 headphone set. Won them by submitting a review on my recently purchased Bluesound node. This past Friday the better half indulged me with a brand new Flexsteel ... 
Lifting the Christmas veil
Congratulations and well done on all fronts. My lovely wife is a wonderful person but unfortunately care not one whit about my hobbies. Audio and acoustic guitars.  
Purchase on Audiogon arrived not as described
https://forum.audiogon.com/posts/2637213 What a bummer. I purchased a pair of "open box" KEF R3 Metas earlier this year. Totally love them. Too bad you're having such a terrible experience.  
Aggrivated tinnitus from speakers?
I've also had tinnitus for years. Who knows from what. When I was in boot camp way back in the mid 60's, we took a battery of aptitude tests. My highest score was in sonar. So I figure I had pretty good hearing back then. Tinnitus is difficult to...
