DCS DACs vs each other
Can’t go wrong with any of the Bricasti gear.  Solid products and best customer service in the industry. 
Lots of bass at walls, lack of bass in center of room/listening position
How are you all connecting multiple subs to your electronics? 
Anyone using an external streamer with a Bricasti M12 or M21?
The M21 is definitely not RoonReady, while the M1 and M12 are.  Not sure on the new M3 units, though. 
Anyone using an external streamer with a Bricasti M12 or M21?
I'm using Roon exclusively, and the M21 is not a certified device.  While it works, I don't have the same level of control over the M21 volume like I would if it were certified.Looking at things like the Auralic and Lumin devices, they offer scree... 
Speaker Isolation -- Experience with Townshend Seismic Isolation Podiums
Been living with my podiums for a week now and am very happy.  My room is untreated and the podiums made a noticeable difference in reducing congestion. I have definitely noticed things sounding cleaner, or what I would call less muddy.I had looke... 
Power Cords - Equipment Priority?
If you upgrade the power cables going from your conditioner to your amp(s), do you also need to upgrade the power cable going from the wall to the conditioner?  Wondering if it's a case of the "weakest link" here, or if the power conditioner cable... 
Looking for perspectives
Correct...I only do digital via Roon.  The stereo amps are (unfortunately) still above the budget. 
Looking for perspectives
Unfortunately, the Bricasti amps are almost twice my budget for this purchase.  
Roon in the cloud
There are still plenty of folks who have no need for streaming music and would prefer to own what we listen to.  For those of us in that camp, Roon is a fantastic option. 
Streamer choices
What’s your budget? 
Mytek Brooklyn+microRendu -or- PS Audio DS Junior?
I’ve had both at one point, and would recommend the PSA over the Mytek.  Customer service from Mytek was poor when I had a problem with a bad unit. 
DAC/Streamers Under 10k - Mytek, PS Audio...
As much as I liked my Brooklyn and was looking at the Manhattan as an upgrade, I dumped it and won’t buy another Mytek product.  Support, when you can get it, is poor.  It’s not a well run company on the business side of things.Bricasti, on the ot... 
Genelec SAM active studio monitors for home use
@gosta  Imaging is very good (if not excellent).  I upgraded from the Focal SoloBe6 nearfields and there was a significant improvement across all criteria, especially with SAM enabled.  The Genelec’s aren’t cheap...but they are worth the price. 
Genelec SAM active studio monitors for home use
I’m running a set of the 8341’s on my desk and couldn’t be happier.  The SAM functionality works well (took a lot of the mid mud out for my room).  As others have said, they are honest monitors...crap in, crap out.  One thing that impressed me the... 
Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
Just picked mine up yesterday.  Built like a tank and with limited listening time, I couldn’t be happier with the sound.
