    Re: Amps that sound great with Avantgarde speakers ?

    That's interesting, Jim. Especially since an SET friend of mine recommends them and likes only 2 or 3 SS amps. Perhaps the Gaincard just wasn't a good match with high AG impedance.

    Re: Amps that sound great with Avantgarde speakers ?

    Great to hear about your experience, Jordan. The Thomas Mayer stuff would probably be first in line if i splurge on Duo XDs some day. Viva Solista a close second.

    One other amp I'd love to hear on...
  4. Re: News: Millions Of MQA Tracks Coming To TIDAL Masters From Warner Music

    MQA wasn't made for audiophiles. we are an insignificant factor in the music world. there is a reason the top 2 streaming services still don't have even cd-quality sound. i can't say MQA Tidal...

    Re: Fyne 502SPís arrive

    Would really like to hear some Fynes....after hearing my friend of a friends Westies which were super fun. I subsequently heard Kensingtons which didn't really do it for me. A new, modern Tannoy...

    Re: Accuphase Price Increase

    it's just the normal distributor BS - raise prices artificially and then give huge discounts to make everyone feel better. ever wonder why Raidhos trade at 30 cents on the $? haha.

  11. Re: Seeking music server recommendation: aurender vs Innuos vs other

    Innuos uses isolated ethernet, which I prefer to USB. It's really quite easy to setup and use Roon directly on an ipad - going on 3 years without much of a hiccup. Just the occasional firmware...

    Re: MSB dac review by Audio Excellence ..,

    It is, but $42k for the price of admission (w/ network streamer) is a gigantic sum of money for digitalphiles.

    I've always wanted to compare the Premier to the Discrete. I came from an Analog...

  15. Re: New speakers: Magico M3 v Rockport Cygnus v YG Sonja 2.2 v Gryphon Pantheon

    Iíd probably recommend Rockport with your preferences, which are musical and have the best bass Iíve heard - but form factor might be a concern. Andy Payor used Gryphon amps for years as well.

    Re: Audio Research Has Been Sold

    Remember the old VT100, Ref 110, Ref 600s, etc? Those amps were whitish, SS-style tubes. I'll also add the LS25 preamp line which couldn't be more desicate if they tried. I've heard the Ref2mk2 a...

    Unpopular opinion: ARC sounded better under Fine Sounds than Bill Johnsonís last 20 years. Actually sounds tubed.

    Congrats on the upgrade! I said during my speaker search that Stenheim reminds me of Harbeth with an aluminum chassis. I also prefer them on SS vs. tube and imagine Lux would be perfecto. Dart 108...

    Re: MSB - The Discrete DAC

    just get an Innuos and use ethernet the entire way with the renderer. easy peasy. MSB is fully balanced at least on the Premier on up so I'd get XLR output and use adapters as needed (then you get...
