Stereophile review of the $30,000 tekton speakers
@carlsbad2 I don't know what that is.  
A quick question on what streamers to consider.......
@tommyr1963  I have the same streaming setup.  iFi Zen Stream, iFi LAN Silencer and the iFi iPower Elite power supply.  I think it works quite well.  Do you find that Qobuz sounds better using Roon than, say, the mconnectHD app?  
New Streamer, DAC or Let it Be
Well let's start with what you think you're currently lacking in terms of sound.  What don't you like about the current setup?  
Need suggestions on a streaming solution!
I'm using an iFi Zen Stream with an iFi iPower Elite power supply and I'm pleased with it.  I don't have another streamer to compare it with though so I don't know if I'm missing out on anything.  
Old phones as streaming sources
@mdalton  Don't get so defensive, it's going to be ok.  
Old phones as streaming sources
I tried an old phone and didn't like it.  I don't care how it measures, it didn't sound good.  
@mdalton  The USA is a constitutional republic, not a pure democracy and that's a good thing.  As far as talking about servers and streamers... this is the dac-streamer-preamp forum so that's why.  
AGD Tempo in the house
Mikey exposing the hidden agendas.  It's pretty interesting.  
I’m really jonesing to hear a set of the Borresen X3 myself.   
Revisiting Chinese Knockoff Cables
A little off topic but is anybody aware of a decent power conditioner from Aliexpress?    
Revisiting Chinese Knockoff Cables
@hdm They’re absolutely shameless re-selling a $60 cable for $180 with purchase of an Equi Core (which I hear are quite nice). Wonder if there’s a knockoff Equi Core?  
What was the first power cable that you noticed a difference in the sound?
@williewonka Steve, I just read through the entire THE HELIX IMAGE" Power Cable guide and will likely make a few power cables to try out.  I too love a good DIY challenge (and saving money).  Any meaningful updates since the article was written in... 
Router for Audio Streaming
@wsrrsw Take a cruise man, they're great.  
SST Son Of Ampzilla II vs Parasound A21 or A23+
@brianlucey Great, glad it worked out for you.  So the Magnus is made in the USA for the Chinese market?  Interesting.    
SST Son Of Ampzilla II vs Parasound A21 or A23+
I was searching for a Son of Ampzilla II for a while but ended up getting a pair of Cherry Maraschino monos, the 60v power supply version, 800w into 2 ohms. Really works great with my Magnepan LRS+. Something to consider.
