  2. Re: Aurender (ACS10) vs. Innuos software for classical music

    One thing I forgot to mention, a friend was over one time with his laptop and was able to access my ACS10 on my network, this looked to be a easier way to edit.

    Again, I've never seen Innuos so...
  3. Re: Aurender (ACS10) vs. Innuos software for classical music

    I see no comments yet, so here is my Conductor impressions. I have not seen Innuos.

    Ripping is easy, just put disc into drawer, close, and it's off. Aurender does pretty good and finding and...
  4. Re: I left B&W & McIntosh and need help with pairings

    I like the 5805, somewhat neutral without being analytical, the highs are there without being harsh, nice and smooth. Never heard one with Focal, seems to have good synergy with Audio Physics. The...

    Re: Hello

    Hello & welcome.

    I believe Atoll is French, if you are familiar just curious how the brand is viewed there. Whether it's thought of as really good or entry level etc.
  7. Re: External stereo power amp for Onkyo TX-RZ830 Receiver

    I've never heard of the first one, the 2nd one is a receiver in itself and not what you want.

    Take a look at the Emotiva website you should find more amps in your range.

    If adding just...
  8. Re: New amp to drive Sonus Faber Olympica III - Hegel? Coda? Mark Levinson?

    The Siltech I had was directional, sorry to be Mr. Obvious, but you might check to be sure the cables are connected in the correct direction. If you don't notice arrows on the cable the signal...

  10. Re: External stereo power amp for Onkyo TX-RZ830 Receiver

    Marantz has some stereo and multichannel amps that work well and not very expensive for what you get. NAD has a variety but not sure on pricing.

    I like Class D amps with the auto on feature for...

    Re: Pass INT-60 or Boulder 866?

    In my opinion from what you posted about detail & transparency you are likely to like the 866 better. The 866 also has better dynamics in terms of quickness, transients. Pass won't put you to sleep...
  12. Re: New amp to drive Sonus Faber Olympica III - Hegel? Coda? Mark Levinson?

    If the sound doesn't begin to improve with some break in time see if you can exchange them.

    I haven't used Siltech in a long while but my impression is they are not like good, better, best, the...

    Re: Pass INT-60 or Boulder 866?

    Some other thoughts, would you need or use the DAC in the 866?

    Something I think about but others may not, the 60 is a straight forward amp for the most part in regards to operation, the 866 has...

    Re: Pass INT-60 or Boulder 866?

    Mike has both and would know.

    I've never had them side by side, my take is Pass for a warmer more relaxed presentation where the 866 would be more neutral and transparent. Both are excellent it...

    Re: Pre-Amp for New Used System

    I don't feel Rogue is as capable as VTL and wouldn't use their preamp. As I stated, my opinion.

  17. Re: Users report the following USB DAC's improve with cleaner USB power

    It's obvious from his name and the way the post is written it's his product, never any doubt. However he isn't the first here to do that, the difference is he is the first one I've seen atttacked or...
  18. Re: Users report the following USB DAC's improve with cleaner USB power

    Mep I don't see what he posted being any different then the Ify guy or a few others. Do they have some special permission to hock their product? Are you a mod? It's really not productive to the...
  19. Re: Can a really good/great pair of headphones and amp match or beat a room system?

    If I had to I'd make do with headphones. I used to wear them a lot when making mixed tapes and CD's for friends and family.

    My Sennheisers are old but I've never gotten fatigue with wearing them....

    Re: Pre-Amp for New Used System

    If it was me I'd get a VTL preamp, same brand synergy.

    Just my opinion, Rogue is not up to the task and Prima Luna is a different sound signature than VTL. If not vTL, from what you describe you...

    Re: recommendations for a new cartridge

    I was going to suggest the Maestro. The Concept is an over achiever so you can use a higher level cart and still yield a benefit. You made a good choice though. I like the CA carts. I like the...
  22. Re: Warmth and spatial representation: Mutually exclusive?

    Equalizing is maddening. Sometimes when you bump up the midbass it does sound like some of the air is gone.

    We have to except the fact not all recordings are good, listen to them how they are and...
  23. Re: Can a really good/great pair of headphones and amp match or beat a room system?

    I do not do much main listening with headphones. I do think headphones can bring as much enjoyment. I've actually picked up details I haven't noticed before while using cans. Bass on headphones...

    Re: Gryphon Diablo 300 and Salon 2

    I agree, a better streamer is in order. There is a difference.

    I started out with the HEOS and also tried the Node, just streaming to then a Hegel DAC. Then I got my current preamp/DAC, I was...

    I just heard of this Italian company so looked them up, I read a review on their AFM-50 in Stereo & Mono. I found their design philosophy very interesting. It's unique to anything I've ran across...
