  1. Re: 2020 Stereo Floor-Standing Speakers To Consider For $7,500 To $15,000

    I really enjoy these posts. Best advice I can offer you is become good friends with a Dealer that carry's A LOT of different brands. Then make sure you actually know what sound you're looking for...

    This is not the first WB/Devialet pairing I have seen or heard of. I owned the 200 and then the 400 years ago and although very detailed and precise I found the amplifiers to be quite dry,...

    So clearly the only thing you have to add is that Accuphase is too expensive in the US?

    And that, boys and girls, is the only way to do it. STOP BEING CHEAP! if you cant afford to have a pair of amplifiers or speakers side by side then you will forever chase your tail.

    According to EMM AES and Toslink are by no means legacy ports. In fact they consider them superior to USB, its just that USB is much easier to implement so everyone does it. How much truth there is...

    Re: EMM Labs NS1

    Most, if not 99% of, DACs on the market will not accept DSD over Toslink or AES... so youre in essence buying a PCM/MQA streamer unless you have an EMM DAC

    My understanding is that, currently, Chinese electronics are subject to a 25% Duty rate heading in to the US. Are you telling me that items made in Hong Kong fall under a different Duty rate?

    Re: U1 mini or U1

    I have owned both and compared them extensively. The U1 is considerably more transparent than the U1 mini... how obvious this will be to you depends on your ears and the rest of your system.
