Ethernet Cables - what are you using and why?
SoTM dcbl Cat 7 cable, chosen after reading several reviews from owners impressions and pro reviews. The improvement in sound quality over the Audio Sensibility modified Supra cat 8 cable is obvious, but yes in agreement with what you have surmise... 
Aurender is finally Roon Ready?!
"For casual listening Roon should be awesome." LOL. Not lol. I’ll second that. This is exactly what I have been doing with my streamer. Use Roon for non-critical listening, using its world leading music discovery algorithm, then once a song re... 
Aurender is finally Roon Ready?!
@tvad  I have owned or extensively auditioned Innuos Pulse, Antipodes K50, Rockna WaveDreamNET, Auralic G2.1, and a few other Roon streamers Some of those were Roon Core devices (Antipodes and Rockna…I can’t recall if the Pulse is a Roon Core),... 
Streamer only
Any thoughts or decisions from the OP? @pal   
How Is This Possible? Must be Counterfeits
@ronkent  how come companies like Nordost do not sue them? I had a similar thread a while back; the whole thing boggles my mind too. A better question is why Chinese websites like this are allowed to be seen in our Continent, and the rest of ... 
How Is This Possible? Must be Counterfeits
@audphile1  .......bargain compared to a civet pooped coffee that sells for $600 per pound. Which is one other thing I ain’t gonna be buying. It’s all relative. Yeah, save your money, I have tried it and it's not worth it. One of those things ... 
WHY CABLES MATTER!
@skeptikal  From Wikipedia:  "many marketers of high-end speaker cables cite electrical properties such as skin effect, characteristic impedance or resonance; properties which are generally little understood by consumers. None of these have any ... 
Roon vs OS and Native Players - Impact on SQ?
@toro3 Ok, then allow me to add part C: C. As a Roon user, how much of a bottleneck are we talking about in terms of diminished SQ when comparing Roon to Antipodes native players? Let me summarize my recent streamer/player experiences/thoughts a... 
Weiss 501 4 channel upgrade
No worries, I am in Canada so if I did the upgrade I wouldn't be sending it there, but just curious on the ballpark amount. I have read a larger soundstage is an additional benefit of going to the 9038 chips.  I would just do it for the sound qua... 
Roon vs OS and Native Players - Impact on SQ?
@toro3  B. As a Roon user, how much of a bottleneck are we talking about in terms of diminished SQ when comparing Roon to Aurender, Lumin, and Innuos native players? How about Antipodes?   
Weiss 501 4 channel upgrade
How much was it?   
Qobuz vs. Tidal
I've tried to get help from Qoboz and can't get a response. Many users of Qobuz have indicated their CS leaves a lot to be desired.  Qobuz needs no customer service.  Given the choice between Qobuz charging all customers another $2 a month t... 
Acoustic Zen Absolute Copper vs. Cardas Clear interconnects
Nick at TMR Audio encouraged me to check out Audience cables Audio Bacon had a nice writeup of their AU24 SX power cord, and it makes me want to try one, but that's starting to get into stupid money territory IMO- I don't know why their power c... 
Acoustic Zen Absolute Copper vs. Cardas Clear interconnects
@dbt good info -thanks for sharing. So many times a poster has a question like this, they say they are going to try this vs. that, and then the thread ends and a reader has no idea what ever happened!  I am not trying to insult your audiophile kn...
