Rhythmic F12SE setup using line in
Out of curiosity are you experiencing any differences when making a change to the settings?  
Rhythmic F12SE setup using line in
Low, High, or Mid for your dampening? Also, are you engaging PEQ?  
Purchase on Audiogon arrived not as described
@chocaholic  The more I get to know people, the more I like my dog. Agree 100%. Trying to decide if this quote will be a bumper sticker on my my Maserati or if I should really lean into it and put it on my tombstone. Decisions. I was pretty a... 
Do I Need a Dedicated Streamer?
Interesting conversation. @benanders @yage what streamers have you owned/used? Yage it looks like you’re using a Raspberry Pi in your main system - I’m assuming this is still the case, yes?  
Tube preamp with Adcom amp
If looking specifically at the cj ET3 or the PV12L on TMR, I’d bet the PV12 is closer to the classic cj tube sound than the more recent ET3 with remote. That cj sound signature has changed over time.  
Any normal size speakers that sound like Volti
Like many here, they look pretty good with where they’re placed in that room. Question: the television - is that the main television for that room or is that to look at album art and playlist from you audio system? I think that’s the most distrac... 
Tweak Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps.
By coincidence I purchased one in Palm Springs to replace a lava lamp that had no business in the house per my better half. Didn’t know about this tweak, but I do enjoy the soft glow. My spouse says it still looks tacky. Just sent her the link abo... 
How good is good enough?
"Good enough" for me is unstable at the moment because I'm curious about different types of speakers, amp and DAC topologies and architecture.  Historically, I've always felt that reading and participation in forums like this always created some ... 
Signalyst HQPlayer - Is it worth the upgrade?
@jbuhl gotcha. I tried, but then I thought this may be a case of the blind (me) leading the blind (not necessarily you). Andrew would definitely know! This is where I previously got held up with HQP - streamer not speaking the NAA protocol.   
Signalyst HQPlayer - Is it worth the upgrade?
@jbuhl if you haven’t already, you need to download the HQ Player Desktop from Signalyst which can be found here. If you scroll all the way down the webpage you can find the desktop downloads. Once you open the HQ Player Desktop you’ll see the glo... 
Signalyst HQPlayer - Is it worth the upgrade?
@jbuhl that would be the small globe that you need to select. I'm sure you have this, but just in case, here's the link to the Roon HQ Player Knowledge Base, which briefly discusses this. I have to admit, it took me a while to navigate the setup p... 
IsoAcoustics GAIA footers: impressions
Old thread, I know, but for future member searches: I’ve been playing around with some GAIA IIIs over the course of this past year. I have a pretty good rake/tilt to open up the soundstage, but always questioned whether such tilt was jeopardizing... 
TAD KT88 Redbase Valve's
I just purchased some TAD EL34s Red Base from Viva Tubes yesterday off some of the comments found over at Steve Hoffman. Curious to see how they sound. I remember that there was some conversation about the KT 88s - may be worth hopping over there ... 
Nowhere to hear speakers and amps anymore!
 I guess they bought Magnolia Audio several years ago, but then I heard they dumbed/down the equipment to consumer stuff.    Some Best Buys’ have the Magnolia section, but it’s not universal. I feel like Magnolia has been reduced - the selectio... 
Linear Tube Audio Aero DAC
@bhvf LTA used to use and sell the MHDT DAC’s, which are great for the money. Yup, I remember this. Me trying to make connections while daydreaming at work: I’d be curious if MHDT was consulted at one point of the process. From the PTA artic...
