    I also turn my Pass X250 off with power button. My Luxman DAC is also turned off as recommended in the manual.
  2. Re: Tidal Misleading Listeners ??? (Neil Young on why he's no longer on Tidal)

    NY also states that his Masters sound better than the MQA versions. He claims that he can hear a difference.

    I find it very interesting that he can hear a difference. I guess he should know...

    Re: Could it be I don't care for Class A

    My son really likes the Cary. It is not too warm but it does not have that very crisp attack and extreme detail that the Primare has. The Cary has a lot of detail and a rich full bodied sound with...

    Re: Could it be I don't care for Class A

    Hi Bill,

    You may want to consider a Pass 0.8 series amp which is a different animal from the 0.5 series. Great transparency and sound stage but not sterile sounding. Based on the reviews it may...

    Re: Could it be I don't care for Class A

    Wow, that chart showing the 250.8 to leave Class A contradicts other reported spec's stating it runs in Class A for the first 25 wpc.

    Congrats!

    I like the understated looks of Parasound gear. I just sold my old A21 and always liked the looks of the amp and how sturdy it was built. I do prefer silver though.

    Re: Standalone DACs under $10k?

    My $1K was a reply to the post by U-Sound who said that the T+A DAC is old and there are $1K DAC's that sound better. Although, I have heard a few DAC's around $10K and I liked them all. Each...

    Re: Standalone DACs under $10k?

    I have heard the T+A DAC and at 8x DSD with HQP it is hard to beat at almost any price. I have heard a few $1K dac's and none compare. Of course I have not heard every $1K DAC. The T+A sounds good...

    I own almost 9 Tb's of music and an additional 100 lp's. Streaming does not make sense for me. If I was starting from scratch, I would stream.

    Re: Integrated AMP Help

    Thanks guys. He really wanted a used Pass Int-60 or a Luxman 505 Int but they were out of his price range since he wanted a new DAC as well. The Cary has a good DAC built in.
