    Re: Why no turntable?

    I went through a similar decision process (and being disabled, analog is a PITA than for others)- sell my Brinkmann rig for a cheap Technics and maybe upgrade my MSB Premier to a Reference dac. In...
  2. Re: MSB Reference DAC - Another thumbs up vote and quick review

    I hate to say it, but no surprise here :)

    just think MSB is in a class of its own at the high end of the digital spectrum

    Re: Fun Speaker Search

    So you’ve never heard a speaker but taking pot shots. I guess CH must suck too since their designer uses them as a reference.

    Internet forums, yay.

    Re: Boulder amp with tube preamp

    You should confirm the output/input impedance multiple/rule to be sure.

    Re: Why no turntable?

    The early stuff is more folk, poppy and the latter stuff I prefer is more electronic. Most of it was well recorded to begin with. Amplified and Walking Wounded are my favorites and probably their...

    Re: Earthquake - a big one - 7.1 magnitude

    I'm up 5 floors, so felt a good "roller" as we call quakes this kind. The DeVores swayed a bit too which had me extremely nervous!

    Re: Why no turntable?

    unpopular opinion, but I feel digital is much better at the lower levels.

    the analog investment for vinyl is high for playback as well as media. that said, analog re-masters on a good TT setup...

    Re: MSB Pro USB

    Did you try a simple, isolated ethernet cable solution to the MSB renderer from the Innuos Statement? That's really how its designed to be used.

    Re: Stenheim Speakers. Thoughts?

    Had a recent audition of the Fives - came out thinking Harbeth in an aluminum box but with more dynamics and transparency. Maybe not quite the sound stage of the other aluminum speakers.

    Re: Why do high-end cables cost so much?

    Easy answer - because the market will bear it.

    There is nothing in construction methodology that lends itself to $5-10k/meter cables these days.

  13. Re: North American Debut of the DeVore O/Reference Loudspeaker System

    It was big, dynamic, and musical sound. The sound stage was bigger than I expected after another speaker I had demo'd that same day. But with 30 people there in a loft-style store it wasn't any kind...
  14. Re: Your Top Five Choices Under $12,500 For Integrated Amps...

    Used Dart CTH-8550 for SS

    For tube, I'd look to Jadis, Vac, and Viva (high efficiency speakers only).

    Re: How to replace my Sooloos

    Innuos Zenith and you should be set. Get the Ethernet card for the CH.

    Iirc, former Sooloos guys created Roon.

    Re: RMAF 2019 - Who's attending?

    I had thought about it, but it seems the show is going to be smaller now so on the fence as well. Long Beach was more successful than expected, so not sure I need to venture to CO.

    Re: Misho Myronov tube wooden preamp!

    Joe, you might look out for a pair of used SIT-1s. I think they might impress moreso than even the 3. My good friend recently had all 3 SIT amps in for audition and said the 2 and 3 were good but...

    Re: Constellation vs D’Agostino

    +1. I've heard the Constellation Series 2 is much better however.

    I prefer Dart to all of them - but speaker limited with exception of the 458s.

    Re: Amplification for YG Acoustics Carmel 2

    I heard the Luxman on Hailey 2 at the show this weekend - seemed to pair nicely. In my experience with YG, a slightly warm amp is preferred. I wouldn't go the Soulution, Spectral, CH route at all.

    Re: Why do you go to audio shows?

    The Stereophile/Home Entertainment shows in NYC back in the early 00s were killer - and you had the bonus of high end video really making its first push. Like Sony G90s with Faroudja scalars, Seleco,...

    Re: VAC / Rockports?

    I heard them with the $50k Class A Vitus amp and didn't find it enough power despite the nice tonality. I think a good Class AB amp is the way to go with Rockport. I'd probably look to Pass X series,...

    I'm going this weekend to the Long Beach show to hang out and hear a few new speakers (Tune Audio and Stenheim) - I used to want to visit every room and now see around half the stuff and relax more,...
