    Mike replied to a thread Cable opinions? in AudioQuest
    I would take anything Waldrip says with a grain of salt. As for HDMI, I don’t really care too much. Although, I did buy AQ diamond HDMI’s for my HT. I figured, I’ve spent this much, why stop now? What made a bigger difference for the video was...

    Say what? I haven’t heard anything about this. Did it come from the guy over at audioholics? He has an ongoing beef with AudioQuest I just don’t understand.

    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.

    But at $14K this is a “sweet spot” for those wanting a world class spinner. I would have gone for the K-01XD, but worried that cracking that $20K barrier (it’s $22K) would be too much for some. The $14K is more achievable and still delivers...

    Lumin does not support multichannel DSD. If you use Roon, Roon can downmix the multichannel to stereo for Lumin to play them.
