Modding the PS Audio Directstream DAC MK1 and MK2
I did not see the 8/22 post about the Direct Stream "Junior" model; so, my bad.  
Modding the PS Audio Directstream DAC MK1 and MK2
I tried sending messages to both the RichardsElectronics and JK Richards accounts on 7/25, 8/17 & 8/21 and I never heard back from either one. Don't know what else to do.  
Building a 100 album vinyl collection 3 must have albums are?
"I find myself agreeing with you today" is a good example of why the music related threads tend to be more enjoyable (and civil) then the equipment related threads. +1 for Jeff Buckley - "Grace;" I can't believe I forgot that one. While not a uni... 
Building a 100 album vinyl collection 3 must have albums are?
Love - Forever Changes David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust Steely Dan - Gaucho (any of their first 7 albums would be a great choice)  
USB CD Transports
Congrats on your move. Will look forward to your update re the results from the I2S cable.  
USB CD Transports
@michaelmshaw - Did you receive your I2S cable yet? If so, did you notice any differences and/or improvements with the Shanling transport?  
Mazzy loves Little Feat!
"Day at the Dog Races" and "Red Streamliner" by Little Feat are two of my favorite demo tracks. If you're a Little Village fan, seek out a live recording (FM broadcast) from Denver called "Don't Bug Me When I'm Working." It is a 2 CD set that was... 
I Hate Moving
Take a few photos of how and/or where all of the cables are connected. Don't assume that you'll remember where everything goes. Good luck with the move, along with not annoying your new neighbor!      
Selling gear made to be a set
If you list them as a set, you'll probably limit your potential pool of buyers; so, I'd list them separately. However, I'd put a note in each ad that you will offer a discount to anyone who buys both items.  
Give 'Ambrosia' another listen
I thought I had all of their cd's; but, I discovered a live album that I didn't know about due to this thread, so thanks for that! "Standing Room Only" was recorded in 2002 and there are still three original band members (guitarist/vocalist David...

Curious to know what you guys think/like about Pink Floyd's early work
The "On Thin Ice" documentary (Youtube) is worth a look.  
Integrating speakers into contemporary decor - can WAF ever be overcome?
The first order of business is to find something that you agree on looks wise. I'm surprised of no mentions for either Sonus Faber (pretty much every model) or the Focal Kanta's.  Good luck, you're going to need it!  
Does streaming music equate to high concert ticket prices
In 2018 I attended three concerts in ten days: Rodriguez ($70), Kaki King ($25) and the Dixie Dregs ($50). I purchased those tickets at the venues box office; and, I saved enough in ticket fees to attend the Dregs show for free. Plus, having an ac...
