    Re: Qobuz Family

    I have both. Many of the artist/albums are only available in either one or the other.

    Re: Burn In or What

    I have found that snap judgements on the subsequent change in sound when substituting a new/different piece of gear in my system has mostly been misleading.

  4. Re: Looking for help comparing bookshelf speakers before hearing

    I am not personally familiar with any of the speakers that you list.
    Nor do I know what type of sound that you like.
    Asking a question like this is like asking which car I should buy.

    Re: what Phono stage do you using?

    Sylvania's are generally very bold with good punch. (think rock music)
    I always prefer a 5751 in place of a 12ax7. Slightly lower gain but a much quieter and more refined sounding tube.
    As has been...
