Please be gentle with me! 🙏
If you want to learn more about the unit and its capabilities and specs, go to Crutchfields website and do a search.  The product is no longer available but all the specs are there.  There's a good video that does a good job explaining its capabil...

I just listed a Bluesound Node 2i on Audiogon.  Very reasonably priced.

Don't remember of the top of my head. I've since learned I can PM him if I click on his name in any of his posts except his first post in the thread (he was original poster).  When I click on his name in the original post, I'm directed to his mem...

Ok.... i can click on any user name and the window opens where I can click on "Message User".  This happens everywhere except when I click on the original posters name in the original post.  When I try that, I get directed to their "user home page...

I've tried the first two suggestions and I don't have the ability to pm anyone.  I'm thinking it's because I haven't posted anything for a while and as a result, the ability to pm anyone gets terminated until you get so many posts.  I'm pretty sur... 
The $10,000 Question
I also have a Prima Luna integrated amp.  It's paired with the Focal 936's.  The pair are honey to my ears. Cheers!  
Is more amp power always better...?
Please don't associate watts with sound quality.    In a 500 wpc amp, if the first watt is crappy, the remaining 499 watts will be crappy.  I have a 40 watt tube integrated amp driving speakers rated at 92 sensitivity.  I can blow the roof off wit... 
A Few Nice Words For Upscale Audio
I couldn't be more pleased with all of my purchases and purchasing experiences  from Upscale!  
Prima Luna Vs Accupahse
I own the PL integrated amp and the Focal 936s. I’m in heaven. I rolled to the 150 power tubes and have two Rel Subs. The synergy is sublime.... IMHO   edit: FWIW...... I do not have the hybrid PL, straight tubes. For what it’s worth, my digital... 
Real or Surreal. Do you throw accuracy out the window for "better" sound?
I like both.  My digital is very real.  My analog is surreal.   
I Am Not an Audio Snob
I'm a Guinness snob.  I am what I am.

New Aurender conductor V4 app
Is the entire app beta or just the Internet Radio vTuner? I got the impression it’s just the Radio vTuner. I’ve always been disappointed that the Aurrender Conductor app doesn’t support Deezer. I use both Qboz and Deezer. In my opinion, Deezer is... 
Lumin U2 vs Aurender N200
  I went from a Bluesound Node 2i to the Aurrender N200.  Night and day.  My DAC is a Berkeley Alpha Series 2.  
Aurender N-200 Compatiblity with DACS. Is this a thing?
Well, I just received and hooked up the Berkeley Alpha Series 2 DAC and have been critically listening to it for a couple of hours.  Not nearly enough time make any serious comments, though, I do have to tip my cap to the 40 year old Sony Dac I've...
