Aardvark Ethernet noise isolator
Hi Ozzy, Any initial thoughts? Thanks    
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
Same results here as well.  
USB Reclocker
I agree with ghdprentice.   I also have the chord DAVE with the Farad Power supplies, but instead of going the m-scaler route, which I had tried once before, I sold my Aurender N20 and bought a Grimm MU-1.   The MU-1 does a great job upscaling and... 
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
Strange.  I don’t have that issue with my MU1.  I certainly do with other components in my set up but not the Grimm.  
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
quattr0, If your dealer is in Dallas, then, yes, that would be me. I took the MU1 out of my system and put the N20 back in. Love the N20 but the Grimm just works so much better with my system so I had to put it back in and buy it. The dealer was ... 
Is a home theater even worth it or doable?
I’m a big movie buff along with being an audiophile(Two channel music first with HT being a strong second). One thing that I think is often missed is that a true HT system isn’t always about the deep rumbling bass or the bullets wizzing to the si... 
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
Nyev, I agree, I love how Roon pulls up "like" songs and plays them!   Before my current gear I had a Diablo 300 as well...I loved that integrated amp and I can see how the Grimm work work very well with it.   Enjoy!  
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
Nyev, The main differences I hear...  The Aurender N20 is very transparent, dynamic and has quiet backgrounds.   The Grimm is very smooth, yet still dynamic, and adds some really nice texture to the music.   I have to say that I prefer the Aurend... 
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
One note… There is a lot of talk in this thread and others about the Grimm MU1 working well with the Tambaqui DAC, which I have no doubt that it does.  I’ve been trying out an MU1 in my system, vs the Aurender N20, over the past week with a Chord... 
Amp Around 60 lbs Which Sounds Like A Gryphon 300
I agree with bobheinatz.  I owned a Diablo 300 and have listened to the Boulder 866 a few times at the dealer.  Great integrated!  
HT Sound quality - tube versus solid state amplification
Maxwave,  I agree that dynamics are very important in a home theater set up but musicality can take movies to a whole new level.   A really great audiophile system makes the musical scores in movies so much better that it pulls you in to the movie... 
HT Sound quality - tube versus solid state amplification
I have the same type of set up that Carlsbad has and couldn’t agree more with him.  I will add that the type of tube you have will determine how well the set up blends in with the solid state 5 channel amp that I have powering the center and surro... 
Best amp pairing for Focal Kanta 1s
I had an Octave Audio integrated with my sopras.   Loved and still love the Octave sound with Focal.   Good luck!  
HDMI from TV for longish run to stereo system
I would go with Wireworld or Audioquest fiber optic if you can.  I’ve had good luck with both for a 50’ long run to my projector.  
Chord Dave and lInear power supply
For those of you who have the new Farad upgraded DAVE, what power cords are you using with it? Thanks
