Lyra vs. Lyra
Ive had the DELOS for about a year and have heard the KLEOS as well in my system and others. The Kleos is quite a discernible jump from the DELOS. Kleos is fuller, more palpable midrange, more refined highs. The Delos is a great crat for the $ and... 
Bel Canto DAC 3.5VB MKII vs. Berkeley Alpha DAC 2?
would be curious if anyone has compared the two on a side by side -same system speakers.I would imagine both would be very good & its a matter of personal taste and preference that would win out. 
Kubala Sosna Cables - Reality Check
yes ks cables are warm cables but very refine, dark backgrounds and very refine midrange. I like them quite a bit. 
Bel Canto Dac 1.5 or Benchmark Dac 1 Usb
I had both dacs and the Bel Canto is far more musical than the Benchmark. Benchmark maybe more neutral and truth to source, the bel is warmer but i find it more bolder & musical.Th bel would be a better match w/ the brystons. 
Harbeth 7es2 vs Harbeth 7es3
Having lived with both speakers, the C7es3 is clearly an improvement over the C7es2. However, that said, if i already own a C7es2, i would leave it as it.Both speakers are great & either one is very very satisfactory. 
Sonicweld or M2Tech hiFace usb to spdif converter

Has anyone tried the new Lyra Kleos?
I have heard of a few benz cart and ortofon but much prefer the Kleos and delos for my taste. YMMV.

Has anyone tried the new Lyra Kleos?
Anyone tried using using the KLEOS w/ the Rega RB700 ? 
Mac Mini vs. Macbook Pro as a server
Mac Mini sounds better than the Macbook PRO for sure.I have both and the Mini wins all the time.Its more dynamic, more open sounding & just more lively.Hoewver, the Macbook PRo still sounds great with convenience.If you dont hear them side by ...
