    Doesn't get much better than that. Job well done. DIY can be very rewarding (sometimes not). Plus you learn a lot and have fun doing it.

    The Sigma XC at about half the cost of the Omega works very well with the Everest. Also my 6000T benefited from Shunyata's better PC'stoo.

    Iím a fan of Shunyata and my system is powered by their products. But an $8k power conditioner that needs a $7k power cord to function well, makes me question if the Everest is really my next step forward from my 6000T.

    Thanks for sharing Mike. I see room under the for M2 for an M1 speaker. Given that the S line has no price increase and the S3 is out of stock. I'm betting the Mark 3 series is launched in 2021.

    I don't know if the C1X supports simultaneous output of ES-L and XLR. If it doesn't, if you connect the C1X>M1X with ES-L you won't be able to use a subwoofer (unless the subwoofer has a high level input).

    I've read similar , as of 3/1/21. The A5 was the best buy (IMHO) of all high end audio at is previous price. I'm not in the market so, I dare won't ask what the A5 is now. I bet these increases are to make way for the S Mark 3 line. ...

    Also, if the mono amps are out of reach. We can assume, perhaps later this year or next , that the stereo version will arrive to replace the Grandioso S1. I bet it will be called S1X :)

    I've read similar. That being said, it certainly does make network cables (MIT, Transparent) a moot point with ES-L. However, given the resolution of these electronics, even with ES-L Link, I'd still think a quality cable would matter. ...

    No. Glass and plastic have different applications. Glass is used for long range telecommunications, plastic is used for short range consumer applications. The coating on the cable (jacket material) is also application specific, PVC or whatever....

    The ES-L link, being a current driven analog connection, neuters the influence the cable has on the resulting sound. So a main benefit is you can use a cheaper cable. The difference in sound will depend on the quality/effect of the non ES-L voltage...

    Silly question regarding the Roon.If I want to use Roon only to manage my existing collection do I need to have Roon subscription? Seems a little bit of waste to pay subscription just for volume leveling.

    Some things to try: 1. In Roon set it to Renderer Only and make sure you're not doing multi-zone playback 2. Instead of using Roon, try playing with Esoteric Sound Stream app.
