    Doesn't PS Audio have a 30 day obligation free return policy? Not much point in us telling you what we think of their products in our homes, just buy one and try it in your home and if you don't like it return it.

    That's certainly the simplest way to do it. The trouble with switch boxes (I have the Berresford mentioned above) is that you need a bundle of short cables with connectors and the quality of the internal wiring won't be up to the quality you are...

    I have owned several PS audio power plant models over the past 20 years. Regadless of the location, they always improved my sound - blacker background, more detail, more relaxed trebles. To be fair, I have to say I ultimately replaced all of them...

    Thank you and thank you for watching. Well, I was until the price went up! An MSB Discrete is now $12,500. So if you can splurge a bit more, than yes, MSB Discrete with your N20 is FANTASTIC. You would most definitely want the second PSU...

    Pricing of the MC20 is out of balance with the rest of Aurender's range, even the N30 streamer is around 5K less, It might give a stellar result but I doubt we are going to see many of these.
