i2s Cable for Denafrips Iris -> Pontus?
@soix I actually went with the DH Labs Mirage USB for the USB cable. Has a lot of the same features of the Lavricables. Slightly more expensive, but with the 25% off sale it's in the same neighborhood.  
i2s Cable for Denafrips Iris -> Pontus?
@soix I'm using some cheapies that I had laying around from other things. The HDMI is an anker HDMI cable - probably cost less than $10, I'd assume. The USB was something I bought for something else at one point - maybe a printer? I don't recall. ... 
Amplifier Pairing with Coherent 15s
@alexberger I was originally looking at both the 18 and the 15 models, but the 18 was outside of my price range a bit. I ended up getting a good deal on the 18 that made it work with my budget nicely, so decided to go that way after all. just made... 
Phono cable (RCA-RCA) from TT to Phono Pre Question
@atmasphere I'll admit - most of that went over my head. I don't really have any *problems* with the sound coming out of my analog system that I can tell, and don't know what 'loading issue' you're referring to, but was mostly curious if I was be... 
i2s Cable for Denafrips Iris -> Pontus?
Also, if there is a suggested cable ~$100 for me to use instead, that would be great. I don't really want to spend $500 of an i2s cable right now.  
Phono cable (RCA-RCA) from TT to Phono Pre Question
@atmasphere I suppose I left out an important piece of information in my post... I use a Hana ML and have pretty much exclusively used LOMC cartridges for quite some time.  
Amplifier Pairing with Coherent 15s
@alexberger I actually ended up going with the 18s. They're still being built so stay tuned...  
Auralic Vega G2 or Denafrips Pontus II 12th + streamer?
@soix Thanks! That makes sense. I hesitate since regardless of the choice, they'll be getting amplified by SET amplification and going through both a tube pre-amplifier and the tube amp. I also will be listening to more lively music versus vinyl w... 
Auralic Vega G2 or Denafrips Pontus II 12th + streamer?
@soix I pulled the trigger on the Zen 3 and it should arrive later this week. I should be gearing up to pick up a DAC shortly as well, but I'm still on the fence a bit. Right now, I think I'm torn between either: Denafrips Pontus II 12th + Denaf... 
How best to arrange cables in this room...
@paradisecom good point. I didn't even think about A/V install companies to do it for some reason. I'll see how it plays out. I may be able to sacrifice use of the fireplace and just put the rack in front of it (im in Texas after all, how many tim...

My biggest concern with all this is having to get 22'+ long speaker cables and will be using a SET amp. I just...don't have room for the amp between the speakers :(

@ltmandella oh dear...  
How best to arrange cables in this room...
Seems like the best option will probably be having junction boxes installed on either side to feed the wire through the fireplace enclosure to the other side. Shouldn’t be too terribly expensive to have installed. That or hide in some trim someho...

@crn3371 no crawl space, unfortunately. @designsfx haha. no, I don't believe I will anytime soon 😛

@kijanki Great point about future re-sale. Would be near impossible to sell varied length speaker cables.
