  1. Re: Aqua Acoustic Quality LinQ Network Interface review - July 2020

    Thanks. My impression has been that it does do Roon, but isn't necessarily Roon endorsed. I suppose this makes it a risky investment re being compatible with ongoing Roon updates...
  2. Re: Aqua Acoustic Quality LinQ Network Interface review - July 2020

    Whataever happened to the enthusiasm for this unit. Availiability? Or a decrease in interest in Aqua's DACs?

  9. Best Sound I've ever heard? The YG listening room

    Hi all;

    In the past month, I've taken a few moments to drop by and listen to some local talent on the Denver Front Range. On my way to the mountains, I went through Arvada, CO, on the west side of...

    Re: What are you listening to tonight ?

    Been listening to this one quite a bit. Tix went on sale for a show at a small venue at Denver in November at $25! Can't wait to be in the same room with my ultimate muse Ellie!

    You will enjoy the Essence. The most remarkable feature is it's front to back imaging...very impressive! I was very interested in the Lumin X1, but needed an optical input. I will enjoy hearing your...

    Thanks for the reply;
    Ultimately, I question whether the Essence preamp/DAC combo will outperform my Mola Mola Tambaqui going directly into my Essence stereo amp. I feel the DAC performance would go...

    Re: On the future of Roon...

    We are getting off topic (we can blame Mike...) but the Aqua Linq apparently handles this fine...and is expensive enough to attract insecure audiophiles (like myself).
    Suspect a Sonic Orbiter would...

    Re: On the future of Roon...

    I remain intrigued by using Roon interface to control HQPlayer, and evaluate sound quality differences from using Roon server. Haven't had the chance to fiddle with this yet.

    Gryphon built in DAC's

    Hi All;
    Anyone do critical appraisal with their built in DAC's in their Diablos or Zena/Essence preamps? Any comparisons with the external Kalliope of other high end external DAC's?
    Thanks!

    The profile of these speakers is so elegant. They appear designed to be lived with, rather than looking like some speculatively uber engineered design meant to dominate a designated listening room. I...

    That is an impressive unit. Seems like a Swiss Army knife of sorts. Covers all the bases, but also likely has a number of features I would never use. I feel the price is competitive, looking at other...
