Thx soix, agreed. I’m leaning toward a Coda s5.5, open to advice from others   
Equalizer in a Hi Fi system
When I purchased my system, I refused to be without EQ, specifically once I auditioned the Wavelet with my Legacy Focus XDs. I could not imagine not have control over poorly mixed recordings, being able to adjust all EQ, room correction, volume an... 
Streamer/DAC Recommendations w Wavelett II
So your amp is in for repairs due to a mistake made with the switch setting on the legacy focus XDs? Please provide more detail or your direct email so I don’t make this mistake in the future as I plan to add another amp for mids and treble   
Streamer/DAC Recommendations w Wavelett II
Fthompson, when you use an outboard DAC and feed into the Wavelet are you still able to take advantage of the DSP room correction?  Or are you just using the Wavelet as a preamp?   
Streamer/DAC Recommendations w Wavelett II
Thank you Juan and fthompson251, sounds like I need to go the streamer only route and let my Wavelet handle the DAC. Juan I’ll reach out to you directly   
Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!
Legacy Audio Focus XD. Thoroughly happy and content. Along with the Wavelet 2 DSP/EQ. I auditioned multiple speaks and for the price point (15k] there are simply no other contenders to get me where I wanted to be.

Does your "esoteric" taste in audio also exist in other "things" you own/consume?

No love for Legacy Audio
@mikekollar agree with Mike, I live just north of LA and was in the market for a new system but had around a 10 to 12k budget for speakers and about another 5 to 8k for electronics. I spent several weeks auditioning multiple speakers with names yo...
