Denafrips Terminator II 12th anniversary VS. Terminator PLUS 12th anniversary
I have the T2 12th running with a Mini Zen 3 and LPS, my understanding is the mini with the LPS is about 90% of the Zen Mk 3. The synergy of the mini/LPs with the T2 is very good. Big soundstage on depth height and width, instrument placement is e... 
Network Streamer using Wifi connected to a MHDT Orchid
Thanks, I got the model you recommended, works great, easy set up. I’m getting a Zen Mark 3 soon, how are you enjoying yours, I’m replacing my Eversolo A6. Hoping the Innuos will be a big step up sonically, I’ve read the zen Mk3 sounds amazing, bi... 
Network Streamer using Wifi connected to a MHDT Orchid
Any advise  on a TP Link Extender, , I can’t run a cable to my listening area, but need Ethernet for a Zen Mark 3 streamer. Thanks for any advice.   
A quick question on what streamers to consider.......
@ghdprentice could you say which Wi-Fi extender you’ve used. I’m looking for one. Thanks.  
answer for beginners, pls
Audioengine B1, works great, sounds great, and is easy to use. Has its own Dac, priced new at 199.00. You can get from Music Direct or a number of other places that will ship same day. Many reviews on line.  
How many of you believe in MQA?
Larry there is a field under Settings on BluOS App, that refers to MQA External DAC. It took me a while to find access to it. I think you need to engage it if you have an external Dac that does MQA. I don’t have an external MQA Dac, so I don’t hav... 
how hook up bluesound node 2 to external dac
Try both, I prefer coaxial in my system. 
Separate Dac, and what kind?
@big_greg, agreed you are not missing a thing. Node has full MQA playback, that’s why I bought it and as you stated can be bypassed to my Yggdrasil if I want. Great piece for $500. 
Schitt Yggdrasil Vs. Bluenode 2i (Shock!)
Coax I use is 75 ohm blue jean cable from Node 2i to Yggdrasil works great. Biggest improvement however was with Triode Wire Labs Digital American Power Cable for the Yggdrasil. TWL allows a trial period if you decide to return the PC. Good luck.

I have 3 systems, Two Hegels and the 700i. The 700i is in another league over the Hegel integrateds, as is the 600i which a friend of mine has. The Hegels are good but the Simaudio units sound like separates. As stated earlier you have to test thi...

For a point of reference on used 700i V1 (6K) vs 700i V2, what is the price a dealer is looking for on a new 700i V2. I think retail is around 18K. Thanks for any insight you can provide. @hgeifman

There is a 700i for sale at 6K. I have one, it’s an amazing piece, plenty of reviews to be found. A steal at 6K.  
Thinking of buying a new DAC - Shiit Yggdrasil?
Congrats, the Yggdrasil is a great DAC, it has transformed my  enjoyment on digital music. Look forward to your review/thoughts. 
Thinking of buying a new DAC - Shiit Yggdrasil?
As you see you will get strong opinions that really won’t be much help. You just have to try as many as possible and see what works best in your system. I prefer the r2r ladder DAC’s with my system. Many don’t with their systems. Good luck on your...
