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... 
Amplifier Pairing with Coherent 15s
Coherent 18 + Aric Audio Super 6SN7 Linestage + Super 2A3 SET = pretty sure this is going to expedite your journey to Nirvana. I was waiting for some Coherent’s to pop up on the used market, but it seems like owners rarely let go of them which see... 
There is none out there......
Couldn’t you do WiFi mesh network with a WiFi point near your system? You would then hardwire Ethernet from mesh point to the streamer/CD zipper.  
Do people tire of audio forums?
Agree with cdc, +1 @sns. When really getting into 2-channel I would search the various audio forums, but always felt Audiogon forums was a great data point that seemed more valuable than others, which encouraged me to join. To your point OP, I’m ... 
Roon Aquisition: Will This Help Or Hamper?
Over in the Roon forum Danny Dulai (founder) stated the following in the second post, which can be found here: We expected to fight hard for the existing lifetimers, but Harman was awesome and didn’t even consider not continuing to support them!... 
Not sure if this is the right forum
Audiogon has three main sections that are somewhat compartmentalized: 1. Marketplace (landing page for this site) 2. Forum 3. Virtual Systems 4. and perhaps less popular sections (Bluebook and Merch) You must do your search in the respective ... 
Sunfire Classic Tube Pre-Amp
Agree! I also think the Sunfire Cinema Grand and its smaller Architect series looked beautiful, too - very much regret selling. Product page here.    
Linear Tube Audio Aero DAC
Looks like 6SN7 or 12SN7 output tubes. Product page here.  
Linear Tube Audio Aero DAC
Better image below and further info from PTA: I was on the hunt for the elusive new Linear Tube Audio Aero DAC that I learned about on Friday. I found one in the headphone area, and I put on some cans to listen. The DAC sounded clean, but headph... 
Hattor Audio preamps?
Oh my goodness. Apologies @mitch2. This entire time while reading this thread I had you mixed up with another member who has a somewhat similar user name, but was helpful when discussing Aric Audio and Tannoys in a private conversation many months... 
Hattor Audio preamps?
@ozzy62 earlier in the thread you had mentioned that you had a Don Sachs preamp; I've only heard good things about Don Sachs. I know you and @mitch2 have Aric Audio amps and Hattor preamps, but was curious if you had tried Aric's preamps. I'm a li... 
Audiogon Tech Question
+1 @yogiboy I was just going to say, HiFi Shark and its notifications do exactly this, but across multiple platforms (USAM, eBay, Audiogon, etc).   
What To Do?
You haven’t been threatening, you’ve sent text messages, emails, and phone calls with no response for the past four months, but have been informed that’s he’s likely dealing with stressors in his life. It seems like you’ve given this tech more tha... 
Getting Back In - But Doing it Sanely
The Merlin’s were on my short list a long time ago - they look so classy. This isn’t a recommendation since I have no idea on how the combination would mesh, but if I were in the market for speakers I’d be really curious on how an Aric Audio Trans... 
Tube sound is not about warmth. It's about correct presentation.
