    Preamp tubes can take 50-75 hours before finally settling in. I know it seems like a long time but definitely give it more time.

    Thanks for pointing that out. Guess I'll simply need to get an Everest demo unit in house, to see if it makes for superior solution over what I have today. And if the big leap in cost is warranted by a big leap in SQ.

    Wondering, based on my current Shunyata power conditioners, whether I'd really benefit from stepping up to the Everest, either in its current configuration or a future rack-based design. Any thoughts?

    It is probably time to run a complete restore on the computer. The computer is certainly capable enough to run Roon without issues but after seven years virtually any computer should be given a full refresh. I would be shocked if that does not...

    That's interesting Mike. There are so many in our hobby who revel in denigrating MQA yet three companies (MSB, dCS and EMM) all of which would be included in most everyone's list of TOP 5 have chosen include MQA as a option for their customers.
