PS Audio DirectStream DAC power cord
I have been using a LessLoss Reference PC with the PS Audio DirectStream and it is a felicitous match. Tried other high reputation (and price) cords but this one seems to fit right in sonically and I have not looked back. LL cords are tremendous v...

JMC,Yes. Set and forget!Neal 
PSAudio Direct Stream or Bryston BDA/BDP2?
Dave,I use a Nordost Odin balanced digital cable from the BDP-1 to the PS Audio DSD, and then High Fidelity Enhanced IC's from DSD to preamp. I am a happy fellow.Neal 
Considering buying a CD transport
I have a RAM-modded, True Sound maintained  CEC TL-1x in perfect operating condition with remote I intend to put up for sale, with Kharma Grand Ref digicable included. Contact me off-line if interested.Neal 
aes / ebu digital cable choices
After the Nordost Odin which I currently use, the best I have encountered was the Stealth Sextet, and I have heard many digital cables with balanced terminations. The Nordost Valhalla and Kharma Grand ref, though polar opposites (no pun intended) ... 
Why Are There So Many Audio Research Reference 5SE's For Sale
Simple reason: ARC "upgrades" their pre's every ten minutes, thus impairing the resale value of the ARC pre you own unless you pay for the upgrade. In contrast, a company like VTL, whose 7.5 iii pre I happily own, upgrades their models every few Y... 
Teresonic Ingenium Silver loudspeakers
I heard the smaller Teresonic Magus at the NY Audio Show in Westchester. I would have bought them on the spot were they not so very expensive for a small speaker. They were one of the finest small speakers I have heard in over 40 years of audiophi... 
Vintage Krell Amp... Which would you choose?
Krell FPB 300cx. Sweet, powerful, durable and reliable. What else could you want? Mine is 14 years old and going strong, never even a hiccup.Neal 
Are there any USA Lessloss cable dealers?
Why not ask lessLoss. The owner is very responsive. 
Synergistic Red Fuse ...
I swapped SR Red fuse for HiFi Tuning Supreme in my VTL 7.5 iii pre. Red was superior sounding by about 30%, but the fuse blew, which my HiFi Tuning fuses never did. So I went back, and peace has prevailed. YMMV.Neal 
best transparent pre amp
VTL 7.5 iii. Breathtakingly clear and natural sounding. Like a pure mountain spring in sunlight.Neal 
Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
On the PS Audio Directstream, the Yale Final upgrade is the Jam! I have never heard digital sound so natural and realistic, and I have been doing digital since 1986 when I bought the first 16 bit CD player -- the redoubtable Magnavox CDB 650wit Fa...

Thanks, Sabai. I will load this weekend. Was just getting accustomed to Yale beta.Neal 
Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
How does the Yale "final" differ from the Yale beta, which I think is terrific. Before I go through the inconvenience of downloading yet another version, would like to know if there is a significant audible difference. Thank you.Neal 
Thoughts on Krell FPB series? 600 in particular.
Michael,IN connection with your Krell re-capping, was this done by Krell? What effect -- pro or con- on the amp's sound did the recap have?Thanks,Neal
