Critical oppositions made using inadequate equipment.
chakster, the bush around your system is pretty dense. The system is kind a lost in it… i like it a lot and I’m shocked (in a pretty good way) :))). What kind of plants is that? Do you watering them yourself? What kind of water do you use? Tap wat...

:) No, the purpose of this thread is to be careful and skeptical to strong opinions and suggestions from “gurus” who made their conclusions based on using non relevant equipment.

@mijostynWe all have our own ideas of what is best.I’m totally agree on this one. No dogma exists in our hobby. At some point you just start to understand that you ready for your own concepts and whoever suggesting to you or gives you some strong ...

No, it was about somebody else’s system.  I don’t use monitor speakers in any of my home three systems. Next coming upgrade I’m planning is NORDOST HEIMDALL power cable for my Modwright LS100 pream for my basement system.

Very new to high end audio - Recomendations
At some point you’ll outgrow active speakers due to its non flexibility. It could happen pretty fast, so my suggestion is to go class A amplification with high sensitivity speakers….pay a lot of attention to preamplification as sound signature dep... 
Accuphase e800 or luxman m900u for sonus faber olympica nova 3
As an alternative you could look at Karan Acoustics KA S400 or KA S600. VITUS AUDIO SS-025 or VITUS AUDIO SS-103.  I heard a lot of good staff specially about Karan Acoustics.

Adding Home Theater To 2 Channel System
@bwguy. OP has dedicated listening room so I think the space is not an issue for him. The cost of home theater staff usually is not so high. Advantage of separate system for HT is pretty obvious. All in one compromise 2 channel and you don’t want ... 
Adding Home Theater To 2 Channel System
The topic was was discussed pretty well before. Build separate, independent system with own speakers for Home Theater.  
How much difference does a phono preamp really make?
Theoretical options are interesting and means a lot but practical experience is much more relevant and has more value. I used to have DL-110 about 3 years ago and paired it with Parasound JC3 Jr and Rogue Audio Ares. I didn’t really liked the cart... 
How many of you are digital only systems?
One of three of my sources is analog (tt), but I enjoy all of them cause all of them have their pluses and minuses and no dogmatic approach to it cause for example some LP albums r sound much better than their digital version and some albums r bet... 
Novice Tidal Question…
With good pair of headphones and Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt or Red DAC your Tidal subscription could be mobile and you could enjoy high res sound anywhere… same type connection could also work for a car but only if the car equipped with 3.5 aux i...
