    Yup, just listened to Sonny Rollins’ Saxophone Colossus. What track could you skip!

  3. Re: What Music Server and Dac Will Out Perform My Turntable and Phono Preamp

    I actually find that I become more engaged musically when I listen to an entire album or CD compared to jumping around to my favorite tracks. The music just seems to flow better.

    Re: MBL 101 XTreme Reference Install

    If my Vandersteen 7 Mk2’s didn’t work so darn well in my listening room, I would be all over the MBL 101E Mk2’s. Mike (Ritmo), you’re a lucky guy!

    Re: MBL 101 XTreme Reference Install

    It just goes to show that you don’t need to have a huge room to handle an ultimate system, when it’s set up properly. I bet it sounds amazing!

  6. Re: What Music Server and Dac Will Out Perform My Turntable and Phono Preamp

    I was into trying the different tonal shades of tubes when I owned my ARC Ref CD9 Player. Once I purchased the Select II DAC it was game over. While I could vary the tonality with the Ref CD9, there...

    Re: Noisy Incandescent Lighbulbs

    Hi Jim,

    I measure everything with the EMI Meter. My fluorescent bulbs produce minimal EMI. The LED bulbs I tried were noisy. But this was awhile ago. Maybe the new ones are better. Which LED bulbs...

    Re: Noisy Incandescent Lighbulbs

    This has been my experience. No LED bulbs in my house now, all fluorescent. Any dimmers need to be off. My EMI meter says 40 mV on each of my dedicated lines.

  12. Re: Reference DAC (maybe Select II also) Display Question

    The key is what bit rate and sampling rate are showing when music is playing. Congrats on your Reference DAC, it is really something special.

    Enjoy,

    I saw Kobe and Shaq play at the Staples Center in L.A. Had great seats. It was amazing.

  16. Re: Roy Gregory Compares ARC Ref 10, VTL 7.5 Series III, and CJ GAT Series 2...

    Excellent information, Jack. Unfortunately the single-ended connections are an afterthought on a lot of amps these days. C-J and some other companies still do it right.

    Re: AudioQuest Niagara 7000 vs. 5000

    I made some major changes since my last post. I traded in my Niagara 7000 for two Niagara 5000ís. The Niagara 5000ís agree much better with my quirky power situation (big swings in voltage and EMI)....

    What is the voltage requirement of the AQVox SE and Uptone EtherREGEN? Any preference on sound quality at this point?
