    The K-03XD has been running all week. It was ďyo-yoíingĒ a bit a couple of days ago, but has really settled down now and itís sound signature is shining through. Iíve experimented more with the filters as well. The DSD has a softer, mellower...

    I would take anything Waldrip says with a grain of salt. As for HDMI, I donít really care too much. Although, I did buy AQ diamond HDMIís for my HT. I figured, Iíve spent this much, why stop now? What made a bigger difference for the video was...

    Mike replied to a thread Boulder 866 in Boulder Amplifiers
    The Boulder is a winner. It has that engaging, full, meat on the bones, musical sound just like the 2160 amp. Incredible amp. World class. The Esoteric is very very good as well, but 30 watts, so choose your speakers wisely.
