Cable upgrades
There are to many good cables to suggest just a few. So I will just go with an unknown oddball brand that can sound as good as $2000 to $3000 cables for $100 to $200 used.   TImeportal is a copper silver wire. The heavy speaker cables were $2000... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
If some disagree in cable break in then they will certainly frown at a pair of speaker cable that sat in a closet over a year. I decided to put back in a system last Thursday and sounded terrible. I’ve run them 24/7 and just checked on them little... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
I would say for any naysayers buy anything with rhodium. If you want an example of extreme break in, all naysayers should buy a Furutech rhodium NCF outlet.   
Sub $1000 DAC with AKM chip
Pick up a RME it has bass and treble knobs also a eq and different filters. I’m sure she’s not picky on soundstage. If you do pick up one get the one with bass and treble buttons on the remote.  
Static electricity and my Denafrips do not get along
Carlsbad2, solder a banana on to my solid core wire and cram it into an outlet is a smart idea may go with that one, I think I have old cheap Furutech power plug in a box somewhere I could connect my one wire to earth ground and plug it in the wal... 
Static electricity and my Denafrips do not get along
Carlsbad2, that’s what I thought too, I thought about taking the hot and neutral and breaking pins off on a power cord and only using ground in the wall and a while coming off iec outlet on cord but wasn’t sure if that was a good way to go. Or jus... 
Static electricity and my Denafrips do not get along
oddiofyl, I ripped apart some Romex I had laying around and ran some bare copper wire out a window and clamped it to a water faucet in the back yard. Ran it behind rack along the wall between molding and carpet behind curtains and out window you c... 
Static electricity and my Denafrips do not get along
oddioftl, I like that were did you find earth ground? I saw a guy on you tube use a computer power cord and used the barrel plug that goes in the computer as a ground to hold onto, not sure if that would work.    Thanks milpai, I tried touching w... 
*DAC
I’m sorry I did not read all the post, someone may have already suggested this. If you can add a DDC a nice usb and a silver or very nice short I2s cable. This will help dig much deeper into the recording. Everything will be more pronounced and na... 
DAC upgrade
I owned the Qutest and RME they were both nice Qutest had better sound stage. I have the Pontus. Iris was eye opening for $350 used, I think it’s a must. The big shocker was adding the fairly cheap Wire World silver sphere hdmi over a $25 hdmi. It... 
Class A, A/B vs Class D amp Soundstage
I’ve owned PS Audio class D. It was a must to leave amp on 24/7. If amp was put back in the system it could take 3 to 5 days before things sounded correct again. A/B amps would take maybe 24 and at most 48 hours and class A tube a few hours. Why c... 
Help choosing a DAC
I had a CJ cav45 S2 with the Pontus and borrowed a Venus and I can relate to Vishines thoughts between the two. I think the Pontus has the relaxed character of the CJ. Venus is just a little different. If you are trying to branch out from CJ sound... 
REL owners, how many clicks on your gain and crossover
Roose, “put there garbage out” sorry I don’t get it. The subs are set up correct, I did list everything first post, 42hz, if you need speakers there Pulsars, reference 3a reflectors, I put room size and asked if people if they would like to put th... 
REL owners, how many clicks on your gain and crossover
Roose, why don’t you understand rel says everyone will probably end up around 15 clicks. Why can rel claim how many clicks but I can’t ask how many clicks, makes no sense.    I’m finding all tracks are sounding best between 2 and 3 clicks on gain... 
REL owners, how many clicks on your gain and crossover
Thanks everyone for there advise but I have read the manual, watched all the videos days ago and have set the sub the way I like it for now, it’s still breaking in.   I have owned many subs but used in home theater only. I tried them 15 or so yea...
