Pontus ii and Hi Res
I use an ultraRendu to my Pontus II through Roon or Qobuz and it goes higher than CD level resolution for sure  
Candidates for best speakers in the $2000-5000 market
+1 on Fritz speakers  
If there was only ONE album/cd/release you can listen to, over and over.............
Waiting for Columbus is an excellent choice.  For me Miles Davis Kind of Blue and Radiohead The Bends  
Streamer matching to system
I have a Sonore i7 with an ultra Rendu from small green computer fed to a Denafrips Pontus II and I love it.  Easy to use, Roon endpoint, sounds amazing  
Streamer Recommendation.
Would also suggest looking at the ultra Rendu or optical Rendu from small green computer.  I have an ultra Rendu connected to my Denafrips Pontus II DAC and the combination is magical.  
Cable burn in
I have found both better speaker cables (audio envy) and interconnects (morrow audio) made significant improvements to my DAC and streamer sound quality.  Customer service is excellent at both companies  
What’s your latest high-end audio purchase?
Denafrips Pontus II + ultra rendu.  Love it.  Detailed, yet warm.   Very close to vinyl sound. Marked improvement over previous Bluesound Node + Cambridge Audio DacMagic 200M  
Its not vinyl
This is my opinion so take it for what it is worth.  I have a refurbished Technics SL-1200-G MK II with a Hana EL MC cartridge into a Rogue Audio RP-1 preamp.  It sounds great.  But I recently bought a Denafrips Pontus II DAC  with a ultra Rendu s... 
Silver Speaker Cables
I have had great experience with audio envy for speaker cables.   Very responsive to customers.  Also morrow cable for all manner of interconnects and Ethernet cables. Great companies that you can ask questions to and get guidance and regular upda... 
Help fine-tune my speaker search
Another  vote for Fritz Carrera BE.  I had KEF LS50 meta and Harbeth P3ESRs.  They were each good but did not completely satisfy.  I have had my Fritz speakers for about a month and they blend the positive attributes of those speakers with better ... 
Need suggestions on efficient book shelf speakers for a Pass Labs XA3.5
+1 Fritz Carreras BE.  Amazing speakers  
Large amp fan for Classe CAV150
I have had good experience with the AC Infinity T9 top fan cooler for my Rogue Stereo 100 amp. You can set the temp that it turns on and off at. It is pretty interesting how fast tube amps heat up. The cooling fans do a nice job.  
Best streamer for a returning audio guy
 Have a Bluesound Node as a streamer and a Cambridge Audio DacMagic 200M as a DAC.  They are complimentary.  I tend to use the CA unit for high res files via a USB A connection from my Mac mini and the Node for streaming. The volume is higher and ... 
Crutchfield Customer Service
I’ve ordered several things from them and they have superb customer service.    
Suggestion between benchmark Ahb2, Bob carver crimson 275 and rogue atlas magnum 2 amos
Thank you for pointing me to these two reviews nc03854.  I have been loving my rogue stereo 100 with my KEFLS50metas, and now, and of course, am considering my next set of speakers to pair them with. 🤔
