Cardas hierarchy - older/newer - who has experience?
Markusthemaimnut, I am running GR source to pre amp and CR pre to amp. My power cords are GR with the exception of pre amp and amp are Clear Beyond and Golden Cross on sub. I do use Kimber Kable D60 for digital. I tried a number of digital cables ... 
Cardas hierarchy - older/newer - who has experience?
I understand your enthusiasm to grow more into the Cardas products. I got hooked years ago and have no plans or money to explore anything else. I have Golden Reference and Clear Reflection as ICs and Golden Cross speaker. I want to upgrade the spe...

Pandora now on BluOS
I just noticed that the other night. Although I am still sorting out the new BluOS 4.0, but I am slow learner on software.  
Infinity Kappa 8..amp?

I Cried Today
Blessings to Johns family and to you Bigkidz, you obviously feel loss and a hole that you can fill with the memories of the time that John and you shared. It’s refreshing to see a post of this nature and I thank you for providing an opportunity to...

10 gauge power cord. Too much power for tube amp?

What to do with my dad's old Revel Performa F50's?
Just a note to correct in you listing. Those are F52’s not 50’s. That might help for anyone that may just want them for parts.  
LP Thickness/Taper
ketchup, I can appreciate your logic concerning the mat you have and I agree on a hard mat that makes sense as the only way to go. However I have a felt mat on my Rega and would think that the vinyl rests with a fair distribution of pressure acros... 
LP Thickness/Taper
I find your picture interesting in that the outer rim is not resting on the turntable platter. Since the rim and center are considerably thicker to suspend the playing surface off of the platter. And I would imagine that the 180 gram pressings hav... 
Upgrading Speakers
About 2 years ago I decided to buy new speakers and I listened to so many it drove me nuts. I had heard the Olympica III and did like them. Then at the last Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, Sonus Faber did the world debut of the Olympica Nova series. I ...
