    Re: Phono Preamp Recommendation

    Has anyone heard the Boulder 508? Thinking of simplifying my system somewhat. On/off switch, and MC/MM switch as only choices. Perhaps cartridge choice would be a bit more limited.

    Re: The new Accuphase Listening Room

    I found a (semi) local dealer. Look on their website, and look for a dealer near you. I live in lower Alabama. If there was a dealer near me, there probably is one near you.

    Re: Roon vs Roon with HQ Player

    I do use Roon to resample all my files to DSD128 before sending the files to the Bricasti M12, as that unit has separate dac boards for sigma/delta conversions, and DSD. Just a choice for me.

    Re: Hanging ceiling panels - how I did it

    I did nothing that elegant. I used 4 ďLĒ brackets to mount the single panel I have mounted on the ceiling in my small room. Visible hardware, yes. But I just donít look up day to day.

    I was going to say, spend the money on making the WiFi better, if needed. Sounds like it works well enough just plugged into the Oppo unit, a common arrangement.

    Re: Holo May KTE DAC

    I use the Kitsune HoloAudio Spring DAC in a different system/location than the Bricasti. The Spring is a great DAC, but a few years old now, and discontinued with the new DAC you are asking about.
