Does anyone care to ask an amplifier designer a technical question? My door is open.
Roger,Just wanted to say hello from someone who knew you back in the day when you were at Audio Art in Richmond. I really like the fact that you are sharing your craft and are encouraging dialogue with those who share your passion.dale grigg 
HAVE ALL SALES STOPPED ON AUDIOGON ???
I agree with Grannyring 100%.i have a pair of current Monitor Audio speakers and stands listed at 50% of retail and no takers, and another pair of Spendors at about 40% of their original retail price, again no takers. Both are 9/10 condition. I ha... 
Parasound JC 3+ Phono Preamp Hum
Have you checked the tonearm leads at the cartridge? Might be a grounding issue at the source. Try slightly moving the lead wires and see if anything changes. 
Need cable to soften brightness just a little?
Cardas Quadlink 4 
New KEF Reference 5 speakers
Ditto to bojack. After a couple hundred hours of burn in, if you are still trying to convince yourself you like something, it’s probably not for you. Doesn’t necessarily mean there is something inherently wrong with the product, it just means it d... 
Oyaide Cables

Harbeth C7ES3 vs Spendor SP2/3R2
I have the Spendor SP2/3R2 loudspeakers in a room approximately 20 x 14, with the speakers positioned along the long wall. They sound as natural as the day is long and produce a full satisfying low end, maybe not the last word in tauntness, but ag... 
Newbie here with a cable question
If you can afford them, you can not go wrong with Wireworld Eclipse, or perhaps Equinox at a lower cost.If you want to do it on the cheap, Better Cables Silver Serpent is a great value. If you have not compared them to Wireworld, then you won't kn... 
Integrated vs Separates, New vs Used - Rogue Audio, Simaudio, McIntosh??? Input Needed!
You can't go wrong with the Rogue Sphinx V2 
Class D = Trash?
The Bel Canto Ref 600 mono amps are superb! 
Dac: Does anyhting beat the Schiit Gungnir Multibit (Gumby) in the same price range?
I find the Peachtree DACITx to be a superb sounding inexpensive DAC. No DSD but that's not a deal  breaker for me. 
Class D = Trash?
I have no experience with the amps you mention BUT I own a pair of Bel Canto Ref 600s which definitely run with the big dogs, be they tubes or SS. 
Anyone familier with Fuselier speakers?
I can give you the whole story if interested. I knew John back in the day. The 3.8D was the largest of the Signature series and the only one to use all Dynaudio drivers. John's speakers were time aligned and phase coherent and pulsed quite cleanly...
