    Re: My girlfriend is not happy

    The first and by far least expensive thing to do is get Jim Smith's book, "Get Better Sound". A great reference for setting up and configuring your system and most importantly, your room.

    Re: Why no turntable?

    I am very sure you are right, however we all do what we can do, and get the best we can get. I am equally sure that a $10,000 phono stage would sound much better than my little SimAudio :), but it...

    Re: New entrant

    I love Dyson products. Best quality products around. By the way, the Dyson company was started with money they won from Hoover in a law suit after Hoover tried to rip off Dyson's inventions!

    Re: Hattor Pre-amp Inbound

    Yup, more similarities than differences accept the Hattor does not have the active stage standard (but that is available as an option including a tube active stage). I would say the Stage 2 and the...

    Re: Hattor Pre-amp Inbound

    I have now had the Hattor for a long enough time to get a good feel for it. At this point I would say it is a keeper. Flexible hookups, easy controls without adding extra nonsense. Sounds...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    The more I listen great albums sound great but crappy albums sound rather crappy.... with my digital even crap sounds ok... that is really the difference. From here on I will only be investing in...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    It is more important to get something that you are happy with than feeling you have to spend as much as your "other side". I will eventually get a better phone stage, but I am totally happy with the...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    You got a nice system Chris! Way beyond intro level in my view.

    I know I will never be able to afford the level of gear that Mike has, so I don't worry about it :).... but if I ever win the...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    The Rega RP8 is a pretty awesome table, and I caught it on a great close out price. Also on TAS grade A list. I prefer MM cartridges and the 2M Black is Ortofon's top of the line MM cartridge......

    Re: Why no turntable?

    Thank you and I see where you are coming from. Since I am not huge on much of the new music (as in pop, hip hop, etc., but I do have some of all categories) I find that many new releases are...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    I don't worry about Modem, Router, or Switch since I keep all my digital music internally on the server. Yes, with a well made dedicated machine my digital did go a bit over... but as I put in the...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    In many ways I agree with both sides of the discussion, however there are a couple points I want to make here. First off, $15k for a source component, any source component, weather it be analog or...

    That table does look awesome Mark!

    I am having fun enjoying the new table, and of course I still enjoy digital. Not enough hours to listen, especially with Cheryal at home all the time. :) ...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    That is pretty much what I have found. Really good pressings and recordings shine.... I would say the best.... but other than the top notch records the digital can hold its own if not come out on...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    I do think similar levels. The Rega, Ortofon, SimAudio, Record Doctor are similar priced to the DAC 8 DSD. Yes, the computer server and software is a bit more of an expense, but with analog there...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    Now that I have had the upgraded table in place for a bit thought I might right up a comparison between analog and digital (or course for my gear level :)).

    I feel that my digital and analog are...

    I also really liked the Job amp and a while back was eyeing a used Goldmund. I have stated before that I feel the T+A has somewhat of the sound signature of the Goldmund/Job in that is appears to be...

    Same price range ($2999 compared to $3200), similar physical size, better amp.
