Esoteric N-05XD - what about a N-03T Transport and G-05 Master Clock
I have a N-05XD and bought a Teac GG-10M clock since Teac owns Esoteric. It did make a nice improvement and was well worth the cost. It is less expensive then the Esoteric version.  
Marantz AV8805 vs. AV8805A
The A version switched to ESS dacs  from I believe Burr Brown  
Bel Canto E1-X Dac
I had this dac. It replaced a ps audio direct stream. The Bel Canto was much better. Ive since replaced it with a Esoteric N-05XD The Bel Canto worked great through the streamer with Roon or any DLNA app and the digital adjustments worked very we... 
Esoteric N-05XD clock recommendation
I use the Teac CG-10M with a 05XD and it definitely improves the sound. I have not compared other clocks though  
Is Mark Levinson still considered up there with the best of the best?
I had no534 for a few years. Sounded great until I tried a similar type amp that was much less expensive and easily sounded better. This was with Focal Scala evo speakers   
PS Audio FR-30 Speaker...
On the products that were out at the time PS Audio did not change the price when the dealers were let go.   
High Quality dac with network streamer saves $1,000s
I have the Bel Canto E1x with integrated streamer and love the sound. I also use the Ether regen. Much better then USB.  
What process did you use to integrate multiple subwoofers for 2 channel listening?
I used REW for 4 subs. First I setup the front 2 by themselves and then the back two separate to make sure volume, frequency response was similar and then all four together.    
I had a few drinks and bought some speakers, I've now sobered up
Are you using the 4 ohm taps on the PL. The Sopras are much harder to drive then the 1028. I had 1038s with PrimaLuna and when I went with the Sopra 3 I ended up selling for a high current solid state amp.  
Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
I had the directstream SR with the optional bridge but used the i2s as the bridge wasn't very good.  The m3 I had at the same time did not have the network card. I used the USB on it as it doesn't have i2s. I did not like the m3 but really liked t... 
Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
I liked the ps audio better then the m3. I didn't like the midrange of the m3 in my system. I was using the i2s on the ps audio  as you are right the ps audio network Bridge is not that good. I have since replaced my ps audio though.  
Bricasti M3 vs. Holo Audio May vs. PS Audio DS
I had the PS audio and M3 at the same time. I liked the PS audio better. I also had the M21 and it was the best but a lot more money. I went with The Bel Canto E1x that I like better then the PS and the M3.  
Blade 2, Sopra 2 or 3 or Scala Evo?
I also have Scala EVO and love them. Just curious what quiet network switch did you get that made a big difference?Thank you 
Roon ready streamer and DAC convo
I use the Bel Canto E1X dac streamer with digital and even analog inputs. Works great with Roon. Replaced a PS Audio directstream with bridge.  
Review of most used streaming apps (HEOS, BluOS, Naim, LDS, Linn)
Biggest problem for me and Heos is it doesn't support Qobuz. Not sure why they can't come too an agreementI like the BluOS. Also on android I use mconnectlite app.
