    Because they trust looks, price, weight, country of origin, reviews, awards, etc, etc. I highly doubt a single person spending 5 figures on components advocates for controlled/blind listening, which by definition, is what "trust ears" is. It's the...

    No idea, maybe you could start a poll? I sell as fast as I can make, outside my full time job. So there's that. My speakers are too dumb to know whether they will be placed in 2 or more channels systems. They just transduce electricity to...

    Itís all water under the bridge and not a big deal. I think the point I was trying to make is this: You have some dealers who really work hard and go beyond turning on the lights and waiting for someone to walk in the store. These dealers like...

    Thanks for your comments. Those Aries speakers are crazy looking, but sound quite good. The Vantage Live is terrific. Best YGís I ever heard (at Axpona). Active speakers for a sealed box sounded great. Read lots of people who loved the...

    It measures well below human audibility/perception thresholds, so would be (audibly) transparent, which is not always desired. But that's the sound, no way to overcome the Pavlovian drama created by the price, country of origin, etc, etc. The...

    Welcome. The ProUSB/ProISL with the N20 would be sonically a great match. Since it would be the non-USB outputs affected and the clock in the Premier is used, I would not think the external Aurender clock would benefit in this case over...

    Great question. It really depends on the DAC too. If the non-USB input on the DAC is optimized, then those can really benefit from the exceptional non-USB outputs of the N20. I found AES and SPDIF (digital RCA) to be the best when the DAC is...
