  1. Re: Seeking music server recommendation: aurender vs Innuos vs other

    Innuos uses isolated ethernet, which I prefer to USB. It's really quite easy to setup and use Roon directly on an ipad - going on 3 years without much of a hiccup. Just the occasional firmware...

    Re: A move from Harbeth to... Wilson?

    Everyone should own a pair of Wilsons once in their audiophile life- go for it!

    Re: MSB dac review by Audio Excellence ..,

    It is, but $42k for the price of admission (w/ network streamer) is a gigantic sum of money for digitalphiles.

    I've always wanted to compare the Premier to the Discrete. I came from an Analog...

  5. Re: New speakers: Magico M3 v Rockport Cygnus v YG Sonja 2.2 v Gryphon Pantheon

    Iíd probably recommend Rockport with your preferences, which are musical and have the best bass Iíve heard - but form factor might be a concern. Andy Payor used Gryphon amps for years as well.

    The...

    Re: Audio Research Has Been Sold

    Remember the old VT100, Ref 110, Ref 600s, etc? Those amps were whitish, SS-style tubes. I'll also add the LS25 preamp line which couldn't be more desicate if they tried. I've heard the Ref2mk2 a...

    AJR, you can see writeups of most of the brands you're hearing on my huge speaker thread "elsewhere" as I went through the same search. I haven't had a chance to hear the Pantheon, though owe Philip...

    Re: Audio Research Has Been Sold

    Unpopular opinion: ARC sounded better under Fine Sounds than Bill Johnsonís last 20 years. Actually sounds tubed.

    Re: Gryphon Antileon Evo Arrives

    Heard this amp at the LA audio show last year - truly ginormous in person!

    Probably the best Ive ever heard Magico sound.

    Re: Stenheim Alumine 3

    Congrats on the upgrade! I said during my speaker search that Stenheim reminds me of Harbeth with an aluminum chassis. I also prefer them on SS vs. tube and imagine Lux would be perfecto. Dart 108...

    Re: MSB - The Discrete DAC

    just get an Innuos and use ethernet the entire way with the renderer. easy peasy. MSB is fully balanced at least on the Premier on up so I'd get XLR output and use adapters as needed (then you get...

    100% agree - the A3 could be the most important release for Magico in its history.

    Re: Troubles at YG?

    Not good news, indeed. Yoav is brilliant.

    Too bad as his speakers sound much better than Magico and other sealed box designs. They never had the Harley/Valin marketing muscle though. Pre-Covid I...

    using masking tape in an Ethernet cable is the real AQ problem - for a cable made in China no less.

    Re: SimAudio 860A V2 Power Amp Review

    Very helpful, thanks.

    Coming to the conclusion that if I do try another amp, the 350.8 is probably the best option. I'm more in that "camp."

    very cool.

    how is the Sim tonally different from the Pass X350.8? I understand that they are completely different designs.

    Well Mike, I'm not done evaluating the various amps in my stable yet although the PS Audios just went up for sale. They had poor synergy with the YGs. The Pass 260.8s and Parasound JC1+s are probably...
  20. Re: Rowland 625 S2 vs Luxman M900u? Whatís better?

    I've now had the pleasure of having both amps in my YG Hailey 2 -based system.

    I don't feel there is a generic winner or loser, although the JRDG drives the Haileys much better. The Luxman has...

    There have been multiple 20 page threads on the WAMM and "trickle down" XVX over there - also Wilson's latest feet have taken a bath. The $400k TechDAS is another. Basically if you want to charge...

    I was thinking Class A Lux would be a nice match with AG! Glad it's hitting all the right buttons so far.

    I tried the Sugden stereo amp on my Devores. I found it somewhat dull too, but smooth. Then again, Devores really prefer tubes and are designed that way ime.
